Steve built a very nice website that includes all the plans from the Vintage and Old-Timer plans thread. Its great because you can search, or browse by any number of categories.
Nearly all the plans are PDF and have been sized to their original format. For the Courtesan all I had to do was open it in Adobe Reader and change the tile scale from 100% to 50%.

another great resource..
I like the ScaleAndTile3 program as its so easy to get the model to whatever odd size you want..
I also use sketchup a lot.. tracing over plans, its easy to find wing areas , then adjust the scale till you've got a good area for the model you want

OrangeRX now finally has an orange TX. It looks to be a DX6I clone:
Have you been waiting for a fully programmable OrangeRx DSM2 transmitter? If so, your wish has been granted and at a price that's guaranteed to blow your socks off!!
The OrangeRx T-SIX is a brilliant, fully programmable 6 channel 2.4GHz DSM2 transmitter that is loaded with features. Covering just about everything for both fixed wing and helicopters, the T-SIX supports multiple wing types, multiple swashplate types, channel mixing, subtrim, exponential, dual rates, travel adjustment, servo monitor, graphic pitch/throttle curves, 10 model memory and so much more! This little gem even features an adjustable RF power output setting in the menu, allowing users to switch between US and EU power standards.
All of the programming functions are displayed on the large and easy to read backlit LCD display. You can easily navigate through the menus with the convenient scroll wheel, or by using the menu buttons. The menu system is very intuitive and easy to use, unlike some other transmitters on the market today that require studying of the manual to operate.
When it comes to powering your transmitter, the T-SIX has you covered for just about any battery type. It can operate on 4 x AA size Alkaline, NiMH or NiCD cells, but also features an in-built JST plug in the battery compartment allowing you to use a 2 cell LiFE or LiPO pack as well! The transmitter's low voltage battery alarm is adjustable via the menu to suit whichever battery chemistry you choose.
Because the T-SIX operates on DSM2, it is compatible with our full range of OrangeRx DSM2 receivers. We offer everything from 4CH micro to 9CH full-range receivers, all at a price that can't be beat! (see related items below for our list of compatible OrangeRx DSM2 receivers)

Assuming there are no quality control issues, that is an impressive radio offer/option. I will have to investigate this since I have a collection of the orange Rx, but I do suspect some of them need repair or adjustment. Had them a long time, most of which were purchased off ebay when a bad lot was said to be offered.

its a hundred shipped. and 6 channels. overall, id rather stick to the "14" channel , 8 channel module for 40 dollars.
id love to see a dex5e clone, but for 25 price tag.
has anyone thought of the fact that they will be running around with a non FCC tranmitter in a bright orange case.... i wonder how many clubs will start outlawing these as "cheap and dangerous chinese knockoff"...
still, love to see how these stack up, or what tx module they have.
edit: on a happeir note, the modules are back in stock, and they setup a page for a free replacement.
i get better customer service from halfway around the world than i do at sears... but that is a rant for another time. they said they will be manualy checking, but the website said they would ship it. dont really think they will, as i got a refund for mine already. we shall see.

Ladies and gentlemen, please;
If you want the functionality of a DX6i, then get a DX6i! Despite a higher price, it is better quality, has better customer service, and is a more reliable radio for a new flier. If you really want a fancy radio that might have a few problems that end up with a plane in a couple pieces if they don't get fixed, wait and buy the new 9XR. I have had my fair share of problems with this type of product, and don't want others to go through the same frustration.
I posted this in the discussion section of the page, because I have had SOO many problems with my products from hobbyking, the 9X in particular. I now have a radio who's receiver is blown for no apparent reason, and a module with a different receiver that plain doesn't work!
I finally sucked up, and bought a DX6i. I love it, along with the vast selection of BNF planes that can be bought for it.
Sorry for my rant.
And it's not FCC??!! Just proves my point.....
|Dec 06, 2012, 04:08 PM|
yeah, i kinda agree with superbarlow, and i love the 9x and hobbyking.com
but they DO have problems with QC, and when you can get the real deal used for the same price, its not that atttractive.
