I am sure there is. I don't follow the ARF stuff too much, but there are some very easy to build .15 size planes here. http://www.spadtothebone.net/SPAD/ Some are a bit crude, but fly well.

Yes there is. Have you tried reading or commenting in the thread you started about a year ago? http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...0#post26692521

@ Rob1962 Gone are the days for the popularity of the 1/2a up to .15 .18 size airplane kits let alone ARFs. Im a 1/2a - small engine fan myself and I have to build mine from kits or scratchbuild from plans. There are a few electric ARFs from HK that you easily modify for a small nitro engine. I think one is called the Vision Blue ARF, a .10 size would make that plane quite zippy!

some more help in choices would be a plus here!

are you looking scale, scale aerobatic, sport! there is a lot of e-planes out there that would take very little modification too fly with a .15 two stroke, or I fly with a 30 four stroke!

I fly an E-Flite 480 Extra 260! with a ASP 30 four stroke, took an afternoon too do the conversion!

so if your not afraid ta get a lil glue on your finners, the choices are plentifull!

Vic -

I think he's really trying to stay away from any building and wants to go strictly ARF.

SIG does have a number of ARFs, but they are pretty pricey and mostly sized for .40 and up.

What do you mean with a "true" Nitro ARF?
There is no difference to the plane, in principle, just bolt your favourite powersource to the fire-wall and go fly. All ARF's need fuel proofing and radio installation though. Covering needs to be ironed down and stretched. Winghalfes need joining, horizontal and vertical stab need mounting etc. etc....

Usually you get much better results and more fun by building from scratch.


There is the Top-stick by Topmodel (seems discontinued though); Top-stick

There is the Ultra mini-Stick; http://www.e-fliterc.com/Products/De...ProdID=EFL2250

There is the Twist 3D; http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...80-arf-efl3005

The Twist looks nice. I like my bigger one with a .46. This one looks just as well made, and almost as big really.

Oops, My bad, they used to offer the Rascal as an ARF. I suggest looking on the bay for one.
