Hello Stéphane,
I have personally worked with Juniaer and the Tucano project for a few years now. We assembled the first 50cc gas version few years back and competed in The X-Class at Top Gun with excellent results. The new version is fully composite and is much lighter. It’s a dream to fly. Very stable and smooth. I have placed an order for the Turbo prop version as well.
you won’t be disappointed! If you would like some photos or videos, please let me know. I’d love to share them.
Regards,
Dino DiGiorgio

Bon Soir Stephanie


I'm the guy beside Dino in the pic above.

I know Juniaer since 2001.

I have several of theirs Tucano. ALL fly great, either IC or Eléctric.

Newest development was the TP. Plane is light and slows down nicely for landing. New technology applied to airframe makes it strong and light. I'd say a WREN 44TP fits like a glove.It competed again this year at Top Gun to 6th place in X Class, flown by Raphael Esposito. Check Model Airplane News coverage on September issue.

If you are thinking about it, stop thinking and buy one. For TP they have only in what is called 55CC. This can also be powered by gas or either electric.

If you need full specs, e-mail me at [email protected].

Hi Dino, and Rogerio,

Thanks for your messages.

Good to hear about the Tucano quality. My Wren44 will fit inside like a glove !

Could you please give me the dry weight of your model ?

Do you use the Juniaer / Simoes gear ? Eletric either pneumatic version ?

Instllation pics are welcome...

Best regards.

Stéphane

I never weighed mine but the new version is a much lighter airframe. I used Simoes pneumatic. However, the new one ordered will be the electric version with the scale cockpit.

Scale cockpit looks terrific !

Have you photos of radio installation inside the fuselage ?

Stéphane

Jambock 06-28-2019 10:11 PM

Hi Stéphane.
For new version, airframe only weight is 4.5 kg in average. Dry weight is below 15 kgs, depending on what you install onboard.

55cc Tucano

This one is the 55cc. They are the best in costumer service, if something goes wrong, they will help you out and they will make it the way that you want it. I love these guys.

Icemanjr92 10-31-2019 11:09 AM

The quality is even better and lighter and the previous version that I owned and flew for years. The flight characteristics are the same as the gas version. Very smooth, precise and easy to fly. Juniaer is working on a 45TP version for myself.

Regards,
Dino

Hi Folks.
Where can you buy this in the US? How is the Landing Gear? Strong enough for grass? Reliable?
thanks,
Dom

Thanks so much Dino. I sent them an email yesterday and they replied with all the details I was looking for. They said they can ship direct from them.

Hello I am in the middle of building my Tucano TP. If people are interested I can share pictures. In the “RC jet group” there seems to be no interest for this great looking airplane

Aquilon 11-12-2020 08:12 AM

Hello Didier,

I'm interested by your building progress pictures...

I'm in project to start assembly of mine next january.

Hello Stéphane.
Here are some pictures when I received the model from Kingtech Luxembourg.

I am gonna use the following parts
-electron retracts
-xicoy electrical brakes
-scale gear struts from Johnny Simões
-MKS747 on all flightcontrols
-Jeti RX equipment
​​​​​​-Digitech CRU and CTU
-Ramoser varioprop. (Still have to order)

Some mods made already:
- rudder servo to the back of the plane. No pull pull for me in a fast plane.
- flap servo moved more to the root. More mechanical leverage in my point of view.
-reinforcement of back of fuselage against twist. This was already reported by a couple of guys already flying the airplane.
