Hobbyking PC-6 Turboporter 1700mm

This looks like fun!!! Looks like a nice size difference between the PZ Sport Cub (Kindof small) and the Carbon Cub Z (bloody huge!) Hopefully shipping across the border shouldn't be too much!

Hi
I have mine fast delivery as usual
out of the box it looks good, very simple assembly
landing gear could be a little better, I dont like where the top of the struts anchor
they appear to screw into foam......
a 3.3 4 cell battery will take some fitting ....noway it will fit the way it was intended to.... A little cutting will fix the problem..
the rest looks good ... I will report back when it gets airborne

Regards Robyn

it flys

hi all
well the porter had its maiden today......

pros
it tracks straight on the ground
plenty of power
flys great
lands slow

cons
landing gear strong but poorly designed
1 wheel striped the nut that holds it on and
wire legs came out of axle blocks

regards Robyn
