Yeah, I've had three Royal kits but only two had the poster, the Senior P-51 and the Sr. Corsair. The P-51 poster has been hanging in my basement for over 20 years!..lol

G.F.reid would it be possible to ask you to maybe make a copy of the royal p51 poster for me? I'll cover all costs

I'll see what I can do. I'll be out of town for the rest of the month. It's been down there so long it may be dry rotted!

It's the 52 inch or 1/6 scale. Very disappointed to the scale fidelity of the bed frame landing gear. Which is why I haven't built it, among other reasons. Mick Reeves does one in various sizes that is much better.

Davide72 if i understand your question correctly you are looking for a build log of the royal stinson reliant? A guy on ebay is selling short kits.

Sid, you might remember me. I somehow had communicated with you online and it turned out you lived only a few blocks away! You picked me up in your van outfited to haul models and we flew at Cherry Creek res. club. You had a yellow Shoestring and I flew my Sig Kavalier. It was pretty windy!
I hope youíre well and still flying!

Default P51 Mustang

Iím stalled on a p-51 mustang. Bought the kit started a few years back. Horizontal stabilizer parts were missing and that part in th plan was cut out. Iíve acquired that par of the plan and am now moving forward in building

Default P-38


I picked up a P-38 that had been hanging in a bar for some twenty years. I've stripped most of it down and gutted the old gear. There are still a few pieces of balsa that need replacing. It's been filled with who-knows-what filler and primed and painted. I planned on attempting to cover but doing a test of the tail proved that even with "most" of the paint off, to a smooth-ish finish, the covering still bubbles. So, I'll likely end up painting, but with today's primer and paint, so it shouldn't take as much, hopefully.
I also picked up replacement engine cowls to reduce weight and will be looking for replacement retracts. I've swapped out the original servos with current technology and hid the tail servos behind the coolers (meaning you can remove the housing and have access to the servos). We'll see if this was a bad idea once I get the motors and batteries installed to check the CG. Yes, I plan on running outrunners. Once I get it closer, I'll figure out if I need 5 or 6 cells/motor.

While the royal group I started on Facebook is doing quite well with over 670 members I can't help but wonder who might still be active here on RC Universe it would be a shame to let this forum die off.

Hi All,

I have been building and flying many types of kits and planes for nearly 50 years, but never a Royal.
One of my earliest cool planes I remember seeing when getting started in the hobby was a Royal Cessna Skymaster. It was so cool and I never forgot it.

So so now I find myself with a Skymaster kit and canít wait to start building. Now to my question, has anyone considered a four stroke .70 in the nose and an electric motor for the rear?

thoughts, comments?

The thing about electrics is that you carry the entire weight of your fuel source (battery) the entire flight, even as it loses energy toward the end. Engines produce full rated power the entire flight even as weight decreases. Its a nice thought to have a reliable electric backup. Iíd get a small tank and battery so you donít over penalize yourself with redundant weight. Good luck!

Good thought, I was only thinking about having the rear being a trouble free second power source. I had also considered a 15 Gas for the front.
Any experience with the Skymaster would be welcomed.

I'd look for reviews on seagull arf skymaster and go from there. I got a built unknown royal but only know of one guy that has flown one. I'll ask him for his input.
