New Tri Pacer ARF

Looks like VQ models has a new Tri-Pacer arf.

Set-up for electric or glow. Looks pretty good, except the wing tips are not quite right. Also comes with nose gear strut.

I saw this one too. Odd that the color scheme in the middle pic is different from the rest.

Love the TriPacer but man that is one plane scheme. !!!! They need to look at the new one from Horizon and see what a nice scheme is.

Let us know how you like it....

Mike, I assume you are talking about the new Pacer from Horizon or do they have a Tri Paccer coming out?

Thanks Mike, thought you might have heard something that I had not. Got to sell the Super Cub and Radian Pro that I had for sale at DEAF and then order the Tri-Pacer. Let the Sterling kit that I had go as I knew I would never get it built. First full size ride was in a Tri-Pacer as a teenager (long time ago).

Yea...not wild about the colors...hopefully it is better in person. It is also a pretty big plane next to the pacer.

I always loved the tripacer, and back when I bought my first plane was looking at one as well.....I was looking all over the board at planes before I bought my PA-28. The tripacer I was looking at was in a green color scheme......if the need comes that I would ever need to recover it I will likely go with a green or bright red.

Pretty excited about it.

Thanks Cherokee. Video looks good except for take off speed and flight speed. Has been 60 years or so since I have flown in one, but don't remember getting off that quickly or speed looking that fast, LOL.

Looking forward to you opinions when you get yours in the air.
