Twisted Hobbys - 43in EPP Crack Turbo Big Beaver - aka Big Beaver



INTRODUCTION
Introducing the 43" EPP Crack Turbo Beaver, AKA The Big Beaver! The BIG Beaver represents the ultimate in RC fun in a BIG way!! Equally at home in bush style flying and extreme 3D, the Big Beaver is also surprisingly precise and offers unparalleled durability. The huge EPP tires easily roll over gravel, dirt, rocks, tall grass, and other airplanes. The unique X-shaped fuselage design adds scale looks in the air as well as extreme stiffness with no need for additional carbon bracing, while the rolled cowl and canopy add to the scale outline and lend tremendous strength to the front of the aircraft.

DESIGN
Designed and developed by Twisted Hobbys team members Chris Jewett and Cody Wojcik, the Crack Turbo Beaver takes the extreme design philosophy that produced the renowned Crack Yak, Crack Pitts, and Crack Laser and gives the Crack treatment to the famous DeHavill and Turbo Beaver bush plane. RCFactory adds their world-class manufacturing techniques and the highest quality EPP foam available. The result is just about as much fun as you can have with an RC airplane! Harriers, hovers, precise knife-edge, rolling harriers, flat spins, snap rolls, and other high-performance aerobatics compliment the traditional loops and barrel rolls you would expect from a high-wing plane. Being nearly indestructible means you can fly between trees, spot-land on your picnic table, and try other crazy things that you'd never do with a balsa airplane.

EQUIPMENT
Equipped with 4-6 servos, a 3s 1350mah battery, and 72 gram motor, the Crack Turbo BIG Beaver is exceptionally versatile and will fly well on a wide variety of equipment and CG placements. Of course, Twisted Hobbys keeps everything simple as always with a proven plug-and-play power combo that provides great performance at a reasonable price.

ADDITIONAL INFO
Although the Big Beaver is an all out do anything monster of a plane, it can be flown on a basic 4ch setup. However, pair your Big Beaver with any computerized radio and 6ch RX and enable flaperons and spoilerons for even more fun and capability! Near-vertical stalled descents with the spoilers up. Incredible upright harriers with the flaps in the up position and even more incredible inverted harriers with the flaps in the full down position. Fly low-speed scale-type flying with the flaps down or use the additional drag of the flaps for extremely high alpha knife edges. And if you like fun-fly style flying combine flap to elevator mix for super-tight loops to add even more depth to the BB's repertoire.

Adding even more capability for the advanced pilot is a new and major innovation with the Big Beaver, Leading Edge Flaps! Leading edge "flaps", unlike leading edge "slats" that are designed to promote airflow over the top of the wing, are control surfaces in the front of the wing. They provide for increased roll authority especially at slow stalled speeds, increased wing angle of attack for those ultra short takeoffs and for harriers they provide even greater drag that promotes better handling by increasing the power setting as well as ensuring the wing is completely stalled reducing the amount of rudder input required to eliminate wing rock. The leading edge flaps are optional and TONS of fun for experienced pilots. They can be operated with a 6ch RX using a Y harness to the ailerons but a 7 or more channel RX is preferred so that each surface can be operated independently.

We recommend the Crack Turbo Beaver and Big Beaver for those pilots looking for an airplane that can do it all. It has an extremely wide flight envelope and is a great tool for expanding your skill set.

Just got back flying again the New 43" Big Crack Turbo Beaver, also known as the Big
Beaver. I am flying the stock set-up as seen on the
Twisted Hobbys website. I really enjoyed flying this model
from the start. The plane is a powerhouse! Does great
flat spins, high alpha rolls, hovers well, etc. The short
takeoffs and landings are a breeze. Another fun maneuver is
to taxi fast with the reflex flap position. The four servo
wing allows for rear flaperons and front edge flaps on the leading edge.
This is good for slow high lifting wing performance for
endless acrobatic tricks. The large foam wheels preform well
even on rough grass to rocky roads. Being a big airframe it flies stable in large amounts of wind. I was even flying backwards today with my leading edge and rear flaperons down! Fun times with this amazing new aircraft!

Thanks Cdee,
I can't wait to see some of your videos too! With having both leading edge flaps and trailing flaps in the wing we are going to see wild things with this new plane. Today at the field everybody was swarming around the Beaver. I know I can get more travel out of the control surfaces later but it flies nice at 100 percent throw for now.
Chris, Cody and Aaron will have this plane flipping around soon!

In short we were able to do things we couldn't with the smaller version. Chris explains it well, the BB is like 3 planes in one, the roll rate capability for a larger top wing plane is very impressive. Its extremely versatile and very user variable. We'll dig into setup and mixing goodies for everyone.

Here are a couple shots of the leading edge flaps on the wing ... the nylon bolts for removing/holding on the wing and of course the BIG wheel with the new wheel collar option installed on the axle.

Undercambered the wing for some more low speed lift and increased aoa before stall... They're actually called "krueger flaps" and if you ever watch any vids of pretty much any modern fighter, you will see them. The computers on the f18,22, etc, monitor aoa and all that and adjust the le flaps automatically. It's cool to notice on video. Like said before they're not slats, which are movable slots that have an air gap between them and the wing, they just droop the front of the wing downwards.

Sweeeeet plane, great flying Benton!

Btw: did NOT expect leading edge flaps. I thought this would be a big version with split flaps and ailerons. Awesome thinking to get that ultra slow speed bush plane character but keep the full span crazy ailerons.
