Help!
Another great find! dont know what they are.

Hello, so just by pure luck i got myself 2 awesome planes at an estate sale! the red one has about a 59 inch wingspan and the awesome pusher plane had about a 60 inch so tell me what they are what size motors and any info you have including how to program those cool looking front elevators on the yellow and orange one!

For the canard, down elevator will make the plane pitch up, and up elevator will make the plane pitch down.

The red one sounds like it is a .40 or .50 sized stick. It will probably fly well on anything .46-.61.

You can reverse the elevators if your radio transmitter allows it.

Sorry, I wrote that in a confusing manner, the stick movements should obviously be the same, pull back makes plane pitch up, push forward makes plane pitch down.

I meant to say that when the elevator goes up it will make the plane pitch down and vice versa, so when you pull back on the stick, the elevator on the canard should go down.

Nice canard! I want

Envision the air rushing by the canard and when the elevator moves what force would it have and what direction would the force push the plane.

Nope, I live in Arvada but prefer to fly at Chatfield. Once in awhile I get up to Docono to fly with my brother. Too many rules to break at the Arvada field.
