Default My Lanier Pro Twister

Here are some pix of my Lanier Pro Twister. The kit has been waiting to be built for over 7 years and I finally got to it. My son Collin (9) won this in a contest drawing at a Mount Rainier RC Socity raffle about 7 years ago. It is modeled in the NHL Minnesota Wild scheme and is powere with an old OS 0.46 SF engine mated to a Nelson muffler. Servos are Spectrum 821 digitals. I hope to maiden it this weekend. Should be lots of fun!!

Good job. If it flys like it looks you will love it. The shape kind of reminds me of the Balsa Nova.

Now I don't feel so bad for taking 4 years on a Morris Knife project. Wish I would have got it done sooner 'cause it is a total blast. You'll have fun with that.

I just thougt of one more thing CRJDriver. It looks like you have a Webra 55 with an Ultrathrust Muffler on there? I love the Webras and also like the Ultrathrust mufflers, but that muffler is tuned to give your engine flat out speed on the high end, and the mid range suffers. Nice mid range transition is more valuable on a 3D plane like this than top end. I know you can buy the 55 without a stock muffler, so I don't know if you have one. I'm flying 2 profile planes with Webra 50's and they work great, are super light, and only need 10% fuel. I'm flying them with the stock mufflers. I would highly recommend a non-tuned (stock) muffler for your twister.

Actually, it is a 20 year old OS 46 SF with an Ultrathust Muffler. I plan to maiden it today, I will be sure to give a report. Thanks for your input however.

Sounds good Chris. I'm flying my Morris Knife with a .46SF with stock muffler and it is a blast.

Looking forward to the flight report and good luck with the maiden.

Maiden went wonderfully despite the 25 mph crosswind. The aiprplane flew straight off the board needing only one click of down elevator - that was it. This airplane is an absolute blast to fly. The roll rate is so fast the airplane becomes a blur. No bad habits on this one! It will accelrate in a vertical roll with full aileron deflection out of sight. All up weight is no more than 4 pounds. I can't wait to get her out and fly her again!

I found this thread doing a search for lainer pro twister.
very nice job you did on it. I had a couple of these back in the early 2000's. Great flyer. I wonder if there's any kits floating around out there
