Default Plastic Concept Planes Contact info...?

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone knew how to get ahold of Plastic Concept Planes. I ordered one of their Talon ARF's awhile back and have not heard anything even after emailing them last week. Their is no phone number listed on their website. I just want to have a rough idea when it is going to be here as I am swamped right now and need extra time to get it together for SPADfest. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

http://www.plasticconceptplanes.com/home.htm is their homepage which you probably already have. Making airplanes is not how they make their living, firefighting I believe is how they do it. So it takes a while to get you a plane built unless they have it in stock. They are slow but good, I have one of their Talons and love the thing. They also don't hit their email as constantly as you'd like but it's the nature of their life. They are good folks though and will take care of you as they can.

Not much that I can do to help I know, but rest assured, when it does come in the mail it goes together real quick and flys nice.

Thanks Clean. I knew you had one and its good to hear you like it. I'm pretty excited about getting it. I guess I have been ordering from Tower Hobbies to much! I'm not to worried about it really I just like to know when my stuff is going to show up as the UPS guy leaves stuff on my porch right in the middle of the day. Im worried some punks are going to walk off with my new toy.

Still nothing from these guys. No replays to any of the emails I have sent. It has been 19 days since I ordered this plane. I am really looking forward to getting it so this is pretty frustrating for me. I thought at least one of them posted either here or at SPADworld. Does anyoe know their screenname?

Be Patient they may be working on a out of town job for a few weeks, but they have never let any one down that I know of.

Hey TruBlu,

Sorry you are having problems getting the Talon. I will see my brother tomorrow and have him contact you. I also sent you a pm with his cell phone #. I am not too envolved with the coro products anymore because Paul moved the shop over an hour away from where I live but feel free to pm me also with any questions or problems that may arise.

No problem. thanks for being so understanding. I think you will really enjoy this plane. We were at SEFF most of last week and flew the Talon daily. The Talon had a .60 size electric motor from True RC and drew a lot of attention. Let me know if you want to go electric and I will find out what electronics True RC put in the Talon. The Talon flew great on his package.

Thanks Scott. I just got an email from your brother so we should be good to go now. I had thought about going electric with this plane but it is really not in the budget right now. I am going to start with a TT Pro .46 and if it is not fast enough i will step it up from there.

If you put a lot of power up front you may want to taper your ailerons. I usually clamp a steel ruler and cut the ailerons down to 1" at the wing tip and leave the full width where it ends. Guys have emailed me telling me they used .60 size motors with the trimmed aelerons and no flutter. I think you will find that a good .46 flys this plane well. Hope he gets it to you soon!!

Thansk Scott for the tip! I have trimmed almost all the ailerons on my SPAD's due to flutter so it sounds like this one will as well. I don't plan on adding gear to this bird till after SPADFest. Clean, which engine do you have on yours? Is it the Pro 46? BTW I spome with Paul and got all this straightend out so I shoulve my plane sometime next week. I am cutting it close for SPADfest but it will be there.

TruBlu02,

Have you received your SPAD from plastic concepts? How long did it take?
I want to buy a Dogfighter from them but I don't get any reply to my emails[&o]. Basically I want to know how the ARF kit comes. For example, Does the fuse have opnings for radio bay and elevator servo? Is the wing comes assembled with servo opening ready? Is the firewall installed or is there a firewall in the kit?

If there is anybody out there who ordered the Dogfighter or any other SPAD from plastic concepts I would appreciate replies.

Thanks

Sorry I did not see this post sooner. I eventually did recieve my plane from PCP. It is a blast to fly and really well made. I had to track down Paul there at PCP to get it all striaghtened out. PM me if you want his number. My Talon came with a Firewall already made. All I had to do was cut out the servos holes in the wing and install the engine and electronics. All the holes were cut in the fuse for radio install and the elevator servo to mount in.

Well, Paul replied my email about my question, and I already placed my order for a Dogfighter with PCP. I recently got another email saying that my order was received and being processed. Hopefully, I will get it in a week or two. I will let you know once I have it.

I think you will be happy with your plane. I love flying my Talon. It is a regular at the field with me and is a blast to fly with the OS 55AX.

It's been a while since I last logged on this page. So, let me update you. I got my DOGFIGHTER from PCP a few weeks after I placed my order, and Paul has been kind enough to update me during construction process. It came with CND gutter pipe fusulage with radio and tail-servo bay holes already opened, finished wing, tail surfaces, vinyl tail bracket already and perfectly glued to vertical stab, 3/8" thick wood firewall, 5/16" diameter dowels, and some sheet metal screws. I should tell that I am extremely pleased especially with the quality of wing contruction.

I used a 6 oz rectangular Dubro fuel tank, OS .25fx engine, Dave Brown engine mount, 9x5 Master Airscrew prop, Futaba 3004 standard servos, Dubro control horns, 2-56 push rods and clevises to complete the job. I also replaced dowels with smaller 1/4" diameter oak dowels because I needed some extra space above the fuel tank to pass my throttle push-rod tube. I partially reinforced the aileron and elevator under the control horns with 1/8"x3/16" bass wood which perfectly fits into the flutes of 4mm coroplast.

Because of my limited time it took me a while to complete the job and I made my maiden flight this weekend on Saturday and some more on Sunday. Vowwww, this thing flights great, and it's fast too. But, I think the real engine for Dogfighter is a .32 size engine. With my .25 size engine I can go complete vertical for a while but it is limited. Another guy in my field has a dogfighter with .32 GMS engine and it looks like providing unlimited vertical.

Anyway, flying dogfighter is real real fun and I would like to thank PCP for providing these planes to guys like me with really limited time to build.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your Dogfighter. I have been flying my Talon alot lately. It has been a fun airplane to fly not to mention quite the headturner at the local fun-flys. Only problem I have had wih mine is no matter what I do it always wants to roll to the left. I have to add in a good chunk of right aieleron trim to keep it level at high speed. I have no idea why. Still working on that.

a dogfighter with a 9x4 and a strong 25 should go vertical all day long.
