RE: GP Venus 40 Engine

I agree, OS 50SX is perfect. However if I had the engines you have available, I'd use the 46FX.

RE: New Kit - TF Piper Arrow

I'd say it's about the Bonanza size (around 80"). Yes had the Hershey Bar wing... at a distance I thought it was a Cherokee, too.

RE: New Kit - TF Piper Arrow

The guy who built it said there's cutouts in the top sheeting with a sheet below. Then you use filler and sand to make it smooth. Very time consuming and probably not the easiest way of doing it. ...

RE: new.. fliton infinity 90

That's their 3D version of the same aircraft. Larger control surfaces. I don't know it's name.

New GP ARFs at Chicago - Chipmunk and Cap

As seen at the Chicago model show. Both look very nice. Although the Cap seems heavy when I picked it up. The Chipmunk, too, with all that lead they had in the nose.

The show seemed smaller...

New Kit - TF Piper Arrow

Seen at the Chicago model show this past weekend. Build construction looks similar to the Bonanza with a removable cabin top. The horizontal stab is the same as on the full size Pipers.

RE: exteme aircraft cap 232

How much throttle does it take to hover with the 160FX? I have the H9 80" version in the box but I want to stay glow (I know! flame away) I just can't transport the bigger ones.

Thanks!

RE: My New Custom built K-TRICK 90

Khzier-- very cool. Did you make the kit yourself? I was thinking that one day I'd do the same... do exactly what you did. The G-Trick is a fine flying machine but heavy. It's the perfect size...

RE: My New Custom built K-TRICK 90

I have about 2 - 3% up elevator compensation mixed in for knife-edge flight. Haven't measued my CG in a long time but it flies pretty much hands off inverted. Just a slight amount of down needed. ...

RE: OS 120 II ppump for TF Bonanza/T34

I have the same engine/prop combo on my TF Bonanza. The RPM sounds in the ballpark... I forget what mine was running. I think I richened it so that it runs around 9000-9100 RPM. Using 15% Wildcat...

RE: SIG King Cobra info wanted

I agree with everyone here... it's a super sport aircraft, especially if you like to fly fast. Build time can be pretty fast thanks in large part to the foam wing. I used a Rossi 61 RE on mine and...

RE: What is YOUR favorite 40 size bird?

Great Planes Venus... hands down my fave 40 size of all time.

Close runner up is a Sig Kavalier (not an ARF though).

RE: Thunder Tiger 120 Pro question.

I just didn't use the 6" straight coupler. That's why it appears shorter.

I still have a very, very, very broad needle indicating the pipe may be too long??

RE: kyosho G-Trick, what engine n servos?

I second what Mike says. Hot glue everywhere... even the balsa sides were not glued to the lite ply in the fuselage. It is on the heavy side. Used to have a YS 91FZ on mine and it was nice with...
