LT40 Finally Flies!

Yup, I can attest to having to add weight to the nose when you use a .46LA on an LT-40. Had to add 4.5oz in the cheeks, and a weighted spinner nut on the front!

Flying great though, despite the...

LT40 Finally Flies!

I have the O.S. .46LA on mine, but if you're going to get an O.S. engine I'd recommend the .46FX instead. The LA develops enough power to fly the plane, but there's none to spare above and beyond...

How long till you solo'd?

I passed my club's solo certification after about eight to ten flights. I remember the first true 'solo' flight I took after getting signed off by the instructors I was so nervous that I took off,...

LT40 Finally Flies!

That's exactly what happened the first time my LT-40 went up too! Ended up having to adjust the elevator control linkage to set in some permanent 'down.'

I've been flying the LT-40 for a grand...

First time builder.... questions

Typically the rubber bung that sits behind the plastic 3-hole faceplate starts out with only two holes in it. Are you sure your one has three holes all the way through? If it does then you might be...

First time builder.... questions

The little Futaba 'spectacles' should be kept in one piece. You'll see that there's a notch on one long edge that goes against one of the little plastic braces on the servo. The little raised...

A Start for a 10 year old

I'd just like to point out that a lot of R/C Aircraft clubs have a 'club trainer' that you could probably get some stick time on before ever spending a cent on the hobby! At least that way you...

Re: area

I've only been doing this a few months myself, so I can speak from experience here. Landing a model plane is easy; it's landing it in ONE PIECE that's the REALLY tricky bit! ;)

Simulator = realistic flight?

Hi there Briguy18241,

I'm going to have to add my voice to the chorus here. Although I think that simulators are a fantastic learning and training tool, they're no substitute for REALLY flying. ...

O.K. I want to show off.

Wow, and I thought landing was tough enough with a proportional radio!

* Sig Kadet LT-40.

Fuel tank for an LT-40

Thanks Phil,

I actually took the tank out of the model this evening and leak tested it in the kitchen sink. All seems fine. Also put the tank back into the model and filled/emptied it with the...

No worries. It had been a long and stressful week and I was feeling a little on edge.



Yup, I built mine from the kit and loved every minute of it. It's a fantastic feeling when you first see...

Fuel tank for an LT-40

They're not huge, maybe 1/16" or less, but I've never liked them being there. I'll seal them up tonight and see what that does.



No, I've not tried that one so I'll give that a go tonight.

Fuel tank for an LT-40

I'm going to take a look for those Sullivan tanks, but it was actually the length of the 14oz tank that was causing the problem. It was about 1/2" too long to allow it to fit through the hatch and...

Fuel tank for an LT-40

Yeah, I know the 61fx is overkill for the LT-40. I just didn't want to go and spend $100+ on another engine for the '40 and THEN have to buy a bigger engine for my next plane. A couple of the guys...

Fuel tank for an LT-40

I'll check out those sullivan tanks - thanks for the tip.

I know the 14oz DuBro is just a little too large to fit through the tank hatch. I suspect that a 12oz would fit OK, I just wanted to try...

Hi folks,

I'm currently flying an LT-40 with an O.S. 46LA engine and an 8oz DuBro fuel tank (the stock tank supplied with the kit.) My current flight time with this combo is about nine minutes. ...

Dear R/C Universe,

Thank you so much for saving others from having to view such an obviously vile and disgusting post. Am I allowed to call the LT-40 a KITTY cat instead?
