RE: Spacewalker vs Four-Star 120

Another 4 star will fly the same as your first, you may ask yourself, why did I build the same thing again. Having a backup plane is a good idea too. The spacewalker looks great and is fun to fly...

RE: Another Venture 60 Completed

Knife edge flight is improved, it will do it at a slower speed probably due to the increased side area in front and canopy moved forward, I can also get it to loop.

RE: Widebody?

Has anyone used a Saito 100 on a 8 lb pattern plane? I may be thinking about getting the Epsilon over the Widebody and just wondering if the 100 will pull the plane with real good vertical.

RE: 4*60 Saito 125

Crawler,
I have been flying a Venture 60 (much like a 4* 60) with a Saito 100. It yanks that plane around like nobodys bussiness. Even with 3 deg. right engine thrust, you need more than normal...

RE: Widebody 60 Questions

Going from my Saito 120 experience I would go with a 15x8 or 16x6, both work well for pulling power, the 15x8 spins up just a bit faster, I switched to the 16x6 to help slow the plane for landing on...

RE: Widebody 60 Questions

Thanks Gringo, Its all good info for me. What I want is a Pattern flyer, that's just my style of flying, not into 3D that much.

RE: Widebody 60 Questions

I had thought about the Epsilon also with a Saito 125.

Does the Epsilon fly better at 3D than Pattern? Is it a better Pattern flyer than the widebody?

Glad you got to get back to your...

RE: Venture 60, Longer Rudder?
