Stinson Flaps

Matt,
Thank you for the info. I have 2 Parkzone Digital and 2 SV80's in hand. Do you have any recommendation? I plan on using the Digital unless you recommend otherwise.

I can hardly wait for the plane to be available...

This plane looks great!

I see that the white part of the plane is white foam and not painted and the red parts look like flat paint. That means that the plane is going to get dirty looking quickly, like my Parkzone red/white T-28. I discovered the same problem with my Hobby-Lobby Waco bi-plane, which was also painted with a flat finish.

Here's a suggestion:

I painted my Waco and T-28 with "Delta Ceramcoat Exterior/Interior Varnish". It's available at craft stores and goes on easily with a 1" flat paint brush. It comes in either gloss, matte or satin finish, depending on your preference. Here's a link:

Be sure to get the "Exterior/Interior" kind because it is waterproof. I put two coats on my planes and it really keeps them clean and allows me to easily wipe off water and dirt picked up from the ground.

Hope this helps.

FeoTT,

The Stinson comes with the AR500 receiver. The flap servo plugs into the gear channel. If you use a DX5e then the flaps are either up or down and operate with the gear switch. With a DX6i, DX7, 9303/9503, 11X, or 12X, just mix gear and flap then you can use the 3 position flap switch.

Gary,

We recommend the Parkzone DSV130 digital servo to operate the flaps. After cutting the small amount of foam to free the flaps it is good to flex them down and add hinge tape to prevent the foam hinge from cracking over time. Then work the flaps by hand to free up the hinge and it will be less load on your servo right from the start. All hardware to make the flaps functional are included with the plane except the additional servo.

The way this plane flies it does not need flaps for landing and is very docile, but the flaps are very fun to play with and look so nice in the air on final approach.


Thanks

Is it possible to order just the parts to make a complete model?

I have a motor, ESC and servos and would like to keep the cost down since money is tight now.

THIS IS ONE BEAUTIFUL MODEL, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!

After the BNF and PNP sell for a while, they should stock the spare parts. History has shown that these parts are often sold out quickly.

Also, by the time you've bought all the foam parts separately, you'll be close to the price of the PNP.

Judging by the video and experience with ParkZone planes in general, I'm wondering if this plane will take over from the Trojan as the best aileron trainer.

Matt or Dave, can you explain the price differntial between the BNF and PNP planes? For the Extra and the Stinson the difference is $65, but for the recently released Wildcat the difference is $30. Why such a discrepancy?

Difference in price differential is because of different batteries and chargers between the two classes of product.

I don't think the Stinson will supplant the Trojan. The honest ground handling of the tricycle-gear T-28 will trump even the most honest taildragger, IMO.
