Dumas Ryan M-1

Here is another conversion of a Dumas Walnut kit. These rubber powered 17inch/18inch wingspan planes are great choices for conversion. The size and weight are perfect for the PZ UM Mustang/XP26 power and AR6400 control.

The plane flies just like a PZ Champ although its a little heavier so a touch faster. But it's docile and easy to fly with throws reduced.


Check out my build thread with more construction photos.

Hi Fred,

My mind is soo full of work, facts, figures, names, people, dates, places... Arrrgggh! Too much ... I OFTEN do not remember associating screen names with people I've actually met or had the chance to talk with on the phone... I absolutely remember you! I did follow your advice and purchase the two 40mm fans and set them up with the brushless in runners... WOW! talk about power!

Thank you again for your input and sharing with me!

Seems there are just too many Mustangs out there to make it worth while for me to create another... B-25, Mosquito, D-18 and P-38 are high on my list for a micro twin... for single engine: FW-190, Zero, P-40 and Dauntless are high on the list...

for non scale, I have a special treat I just got back to work on... Might have photos in a week or two. This will be my next kit and will make sense why, when you discover what it is capable of doing...

Thanks again for all your support... all of you!

Best,
Richard

Elevon SUMO

My first elevon plane, I was surprised at how easy it was to fly. But I do have low throws and high expo for now. When I get use to it I'll max the throws and maybe add bigger elevons. The new Pengiun inspired this.

That is an AR6300 not an AR6400. Still very cool though. When I update the mega thread, I'll add it.

It was easy to maneuver on low throws, but I maxed them out and now it maneuvers more than I am capable of. (for now) But once I get use to it look out because I fly them like I stole them.
