Default Plans for small warbird for .30 FS engine

If anyone knows of plans for a small warbird that will fly well with the little OS .30 FS, please let me know. This motor is my answer back to the electric boys. It is reasonably quiet and sounds like a real airplane instead of a glider. Plus my 4 oz fuel tank fills a whole lot faster than you can charge batteries!

Default Ace Simple Series

Look at some of the Ace (Thunder Tiger) Simple Series kits.

You should go check out what the combat guys are building and flying. Airkill, Ziggs just to name a couple. I put a saito .30 4stroke in ZIggs Hellcat...perfect fit. Havent flown it yet. Just think you can now get 1/2a retracts for these lil babies. R/C Report has a column and plenty of advertisers for the combat machines.

Richard,

I'm planning on someday putting mine in a 1/10 scale F-2A Brewster Buffalo, plans by Jerry Bates. Wingspan is 42" and Jerry offers a beautiful fiberglass cowl and crystal clear vac form canopy for the plans as well.

You can go to his website at www.scaleaero.com/jerrybates.htm
for more info and current pricing.

In the short run, I'm thinking of getting a Great Planes Piper Cub and marking it as an early L-4 Grasshopper. Might even mark it as a Dutch bird that the Germans captured. Imagine a cub with black crosses and swastikas? You won't find that one at too many flying fields.

Hope this helps,

Brian
