YES! The equivalent point right side up is way tail heavy. Follow the instructions when balancing. Mine ended up weighing 21 lbs with the OS 160 FS Twin. I converted mine to electric after about a...

Rick, mine never exhibited the yaw / roll tendency you describe. Mine was strictly torque induced. Check wing incidences and twist. It is very easy to get the struts wrong, as they have to be drilled...

Rick, Glad to see you got her back down fairly safe. Check the balance UPSIDE DOWN!! IT comes out very tail heavy if checked right side up! You didn't mention whether you checked it that way. This...

Definitely balance it upside down as shown in manual!!! I did not, for my first flight. It was balanced right side up, on the given point, and the first flight was HAIRY! VERY tail heavy! I managed...

Thanks Rocketman. Yes, the break occurred right in the strengthened area. The impact was such that the doubled longeron actually broke, so you know there was some real stress there. A nearly two foot...

Mine has many flights under it's belt, however, it is in the hanger for an extended stay. At a big warbird meet a couple months ago, after three great flights, the last landing caught a wind shear...

RE: Top Flite Staggerwing

Apparently you guys are using a different unit than I did. I used the one specified in the instructions, which had a plastic actuator horn. I did not have any problems with the retract unit itself. I...

RE: Top Flite Staggerwing

Are the door opening tabs working smoothly? I had to bend mine INWARD slightly more at the bends to give a curved surface contact on the doors in order to get them open. That is more than likely...

RE: Top Flite Staggerwing

Yes, I did. Unfortunately, no pics. I hinged the door on the bottom, holding it closed with magnets. made a plywood board to fit inside with all my connections for on/off switch, charging connections...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

Just went and measured mine. I have the ASM retracts and strut kits on mine. (BTW, Hobby People still have the retracts available, for $199.00, but, as far as I can tell, no strut kits. Thinking...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

The Robarts come with an insert to fit the strut. If I remember correctly, both sizes are in the package. If not, they can be drilled to fit. I had to drill mine on my P-40. Order them to fit the...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

Very nice. Excellent camera work too. I like the slow motion for the landing. Love how the struts work on damping the bumps!
Thanks for sharing.

Sliding canopy very nice!

RE: Top Flite Staggerwing

1/5th is slightly small, but 1/4 is slightly large. I used the 1/5th slimline extreme pilots in mine, and they needed a base to get them tall enough. The 1/4 pilot that normally comes in the kit is a...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

Welcome. I hope you don't think I was trying to stop innovation, far from it. I love taildraggers myself. In fact, this aircraft is one of only two trike geared aircraft in my present flying...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

We dodged the bullit from the storm. It went north, all we got was some rain and wind. And cold air!

My gear doors need the same roll yours do, but one set is warped, and will blow open again....

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

Good to hear everythings going good, Brad. Mine is in the hanger, along with all her stablemates, as flying time has been rather slim around here lately. The bird is holding up well, just need to...

RE: Top Flite Staggerwing

The Saito 300 Twin would actually be way to much for this plane. It is physically a large engine. We have a Saito 240 Twin, and it was checked for fit. Way to big. It is also way to heavy, besides...

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

RE: ASM F-7F Tigercat

Glad to hear you got her flying well, Brad.

I've flown mine maybe 6-7 flights so far this summer. Been to hot and windy, or been to busy with other stuff. The plane has performed flawlessly...
