Default Juniaer K45TP Tucano from Brazil?

Hi
Does anyone have any experience or seen one of these planes?

Looks like a nice size and weight airplane, full composite with some nice detail options. They make a similar plane for 20cc and 50cc as well.

Hi

I saw it fly at Florida Jets. Very nice airplane.
Look up for Elton Batista in Facebook, there is plenty of information.

Regards
Eduardo

I was able to contact them. They have a back log of orders and the shipping will be in March. There are TP, and 55CC versions. You can give 10% of the cost of the kit to reserve your spot. Since I have a Marchetti TP already, I ordered a 55CC version. will post when it comes.

Thanks for the info.
Any choice of paint schemes or just delivered in white?
Which retracts do they use?

It comes painted. They have 4-5 schemes that you can choose from. has to be confirmed about 2 month before shipping. They have a set of scale retract for $ 1,200.00 or you can use Generic Robart ETC.

Default Tucano

I have one of their turboprop Tucano models

Still in the box, have not had time to get to it yet. Very nice kit, and they painted it and weathered it nicely after my selected scheme.

Good communications via WhatsApp and plane arrived on time, nicely packaged.

Extremely light weight. And the glass work looks good. Lots of scale details

I would not hesitate recommending it. Also got good feedback from a friend who already flies his.

I need a stronger servo but think this system should work. Itís a shame the arm on the retract sits proud of the cowl.

Modified rear servo hatch cut and a former to strengthen servo area

Former secured with Hysol

Servo secured on its side and hatch mounting splints added.


Rudder servo in the rear to provide extra space inside the fuz up front.



Elevator servos fitted.

Looking goog Neil. I am currently working on mine. Done with the wings and working on stabs. My friend Dr. Scoles cut some carbon control horned for us and I used BVM flap horns for internal Flap servo assembly. I thought the original control horns are too big but they work. One thing we have noticed here is that the tail flexes a lot during the flight so we are adding a horizontal former on the skinny part of the tail to help. Mine will be electric as I couldn't bear the sound of the 50cc motor in a slick plane like this. Probably will order a TP soon as well.

Will do as soon as I get there. To explain, made of 1/4 balsa about 7" long going horizontally on the skinny / flat part of the fuse in the middle (under the tab cut outs for front section of the stabs). This is how we used to fix the flex on the late 80's early 90's pattern planes And worked great.

The factory has started to reinforce this area with carbon fiber. Perhaps yours is new enough. Bezad, mine and Mike Scoles are all older versions.
I did what Bezad suggested and it worked fine.

Thank you Paul. I have not dug in to it yet. Will check and report. The former will not hurt anyways and as light as it is, would not add any weight.

You all do a great job and everyone loves the plane. I would be happy to let you know at the end if we encounter anything that would need revision to better the Tucano.
