Want to try F5B or similar. Suggestions for Oz
I have been following many of the discussions here and have decided that I want to try F5B Class ships or something similar.
My current experience has been with...
+ S&B Sea Fury (Speed 400 Electric)
+ S&B Corsair (Speed 400 Electric)
+ S&B ME163 Wing (Speed 400 Electric)
(ok so I like S&B Models)
+ Air-crafts Air Warrior (Large Slope Soaring Combat Wing)
+ Air-crafts Breeze (60" foam Slope Soaring Pylon Racer)
I believe my experience is at the intermediate stage, and am well versed in electronics, model electronics, and general aviation design.
I have been looking at the Falcon and Windy from NESAIL (both look like superb planes), however have not been able to find someone in Australia supplying these.
Does anyone know of a good ~53" powered glider (hotliner?) like the Falcon/Windy (for slope, thermal and field flying) that one can get in australia really fairly cheaply (and I do know you get what you pay for but at this stage, I just want to "tinker" as it were, say in the $150-250AUD range (~$75-150US), noting that there might not be anything in that range)
Note also because of the reletive expense of buying special motors in Australia I want to restrict myself to direct drive Speed 480 and 600 motors... I don't think a 400 will have the grunt and besides I have other planes for that style of flying.
Confused in OZ
