RE: ANYONE FLYING MYSTIQUE AS A PURE GLIDER LAUNCHED FROM A WINCH?

I've seen this sailplane rigged for aero tow. Lots of weight in the nose required, but did great, so I guess it could be called an "all 'rounder."

RE: GP Spirit fin and rudder dimensions needed

Is this the Spirit Elite (2M), or the Spirit 100 (100ins). I only have the ARF versions, but others would need this info anyway. Good luck.

RE: Use Ultracote or Ultracote Parklite for 2X4 Glider?

As the sayings go, "Take off's/launches are optional." "You fly, you crash." I assume your granddaughter will be flying too. How much flying experience do you have? If yes, and not much are your...

RE: Add a Channel to 2-Channel X 4' Sailplane?

I agree with Fleet, KISS!! A polyhedral sailplane doesn't need ailerons anyway. Changing from 2/3 channel to four really isn't that hard. Put your rudder control on your right hand stick where...

RE: pilot qualifications

You mentioned that AMA has nothing for sailplanes. Do they have something for power? Other than the obvious, the engine, I would think you could go with modification of power guidelines. As...

RE: Do you use FrSky Modules and Receivers?

Hey aeajr,

I saw your post and looked as I'm "kind of" interested in converting my 9cSuper to 2.4 on some of my planes too. I did some looking and although there's a bunch of stuff out there, I...

RE: Glider Towing Vid

I must say that, I think that was one of the nicest, smoothest tow vids I've ever seen. It looked like a full scale tow. Compliments to both pilots.

RE: Radian RTF - Will this area be large enough to fly

Assuming you have the "real football pitch:D," the American football field and the baseball diamond, you have a ton of room. Actually, any one of the three should be enough to fly from and land...

RE: Jet Sailplane - need advice

Don't know anything about the Opus (probably out of my price range at 800 pounds sterling, or whatever it is in $), so I can't say I'm surprised that I got the wing span wrong. The only comparison I...

RE: Jet Sailplane - need advice

Well, i just looked on YouTube and there were videos about turbine powered sailplanes. One, not a scale ship, but looked to be around 3M (an Opus), was turbine powered with a 3lbs thrust jet motor. ...

RE: Jet Sailplane - need advice

If you go on to YouTube and search for jet powered RC sailplanes, I bet you will find something on there to give you a good wing span reference. Like the other guys, I think you are looking at way...

RE: BOT, Paragon or Riser 100?

I have a friend that built a Riser 100, a Spirit Elite, then an Oly III. He loves all of them but says the Oly III is a spectacular flying plane. If you decide to build one, be sure to read the...

RE: BOT, Paragon or Riser 100?

I built a Riser 100 and loved it (past tense is intended :-( ). I also have a BOT that was a kit, not ARF. Of the two, I prefer the Riser. None of mine are E powered so I can't help you there. ...

RE: Looking for Newbie pilots to explain why you suggest motors on gliders?

I flew full scale off of a winch. Maybe I'm reliving my childhood through RC sailplanes, who knows. As said above, I love the convenience of pulling out my Radian Pro and flying anywhere, any...

RE: Looking for Newbie pilots to explain why you suggest motors on gliders?

My typical method of launching is by winch, sometimes hi-start. I do own one electric powered sailplane, a Radian Pro. Although I do consider myself a purist, I do enjoy the convenience of plugging...

RE: Cometition sailplane?

Anything against foam? I recently got my first "electric powered sailplane," the Radian Pro. I'm a purist and didn't want to venture to the E-power side of sailplanes, but for convenience of...

RE: Cometition sailplane?

Not wishing to be a total jerk about your question, but it's so vague you may not get the answers you are looking for, even if a number of people responded. I would imagin that some won't respond...

RE: FUtaba receiver

I had couple of Electron 6's have an overheating issue. A diode was overheating (caused chatering of the servos). About 9 mos to a year ago, I sent the last one back to HiTec to be repaired. They...

RE: FUtaba receiver

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you will find the Electron 6 discontinued [:o] but hopefully can still find them. I really liked the E6 for its size and actually took the case off for one of my...

RE: Need your opinios please..

I would investigate the Radian Pro. It's a full house, (ailerons, flaps, rudder and elevator) and electric powered. I fly sailplanes of various sizes and also have one of these (my only electric...

RE: Whats the difference?

One other way I've heard it explained is as follows:

Either one can be powered to get to altitude, or use a winch, histart, etc.

A glider, is an unpowered aircraft that once at altitude is...

RE: New airfoil for Bird of Time?

Go to Skybench aerotech (skybench.com should get you there). Check out the "Bird" series. My understanding is this is a better version of the BOT. It's not a BOT but looks similar.
