Top Flite Flite Streak C/L ARF .25-.40,41.5"

Does anyone how that this plane is a Stunt ?? Having a Flap ??

Flite Steak design = "Combat Trainer"
 
Yes, it stunts, very well, but no, it does so without coupled wing flaps. Also, with less than 400 square inches, the 35s and 40s for it will be yesterday's old iron piston cross-flow scavenged oldies, such as the Fox 35 Stunt, the McCoy RH 40, and various 29s of that same type engine (for which the nose should be at least partly disassembled for reinforcement).

It flies just fine on a modern 0,20 to 0.25 (3.5 cc size).

Welcome to RCG, Saab2.
The Flite Streak is one of the finest stunters you can have. I have a couple of kit Baby Flite Streaks and they'll go anywhere I point them. If it did have flaps it might be able to eat its own tail.

I am thinking to get one of them...

I was new to C/L ( actually, I never fly one before ) , but I have a great teacher for this.... ( My dad )...

If you fly one you will never want to stop. I have one with the Fox .35 stunt
and one with the new OS .25LA S

Those Flight Streaks are great!!!We have made therm with both electric and IC powered. the IC ones used Fox 35's on them. My son flew the electric one pictured to second place in begiiner at the 2011 US Nationals. The E-Powered SV22 is my plane as presented for apearance judging at the 2012 Nationals.

The ARF Flite Streak can be made into a decent model, but has a few issues to deal with out of the box -- take a look at this thread:

I had the original Flite Streak kit with an O. S. 15 diesel. Perfect motor for this model. Also had two Flight Streak Jr. models one in the late 1950's with a Fox 15 and later in the mid 1960's with a Webra Mach II .15 diesel. All built from Top Flite kits and great flyers. No need for flaps. The full size one (light weight) with the O. S. .15 diesel I liked the best. I never crashed any of the three. Just gave away when I moved. Jack

#12 badbill Apr 23, 2015 07:43 PM

IIRC, outerzone has plans for the TF FlightStreak kit and there was/is a British version, as well. Sorry can't recall the latter's name... but a rose by any other name...:D

The original Peacemaker, 36" span, for 15s. A year or so later, the TF Peacemaker, at 46" span, came out, but George always hated the kit's molded fuselage construction.

Top Flight had a bunch of molded fuse kits. some scale etc. ARF F/Streak flys well but fuse. is weak at front. Its not solid but built up profile. :)
