maineflyer1,

That motor would be perfect for Leadfeathers Yak55, Edge 540, Slofly 28" or any of the 30"-32" Epp profile 3Ds you will find on the "Scratchbuild Thread" on this site. There are a lot of people selling precut kits that run anywhere from $35.00 to $200.00 depending on whether you want an exotic paint job or not. I have purchased a few from Mike at www.E-foamy.com and have had good luck with them all. I know Dan 5.0 has a few more on his list that he could probably add. Also...www.Techonehobby.com sell some really great kits that that motor would go well with.

I don't have any experience with anything but 3D EPP profile models that I have built myself. I have a few prints of full fusalage EPP planes that would fit that motor but here again, you will have to build them.

Regards,

Hankg

maineflyer1,

Go to www.84hobby.com for a few Techone planes. The f3p site might have more info on them. The 32" E-foam planes come in at around 8 oz, depending on battery size. I've built a few that were closer to 7 oz AUW, but had to really watch glue, pushrod size, battery etc.

Regards,

Check out the build specs and log on this Piaget build by "Tallflyer" along with the pictures...it will give you an idea of what it takes to build a TechOne airplane.

Blow up the pictures for a really clear view.

Hankg,
Thanks for all the help, I was looking at a Extra 300 on Tower but it is 3mm and doesn't look at sturdy as the TechOnes... I have a bunch of 3S batteries for this motor 830ma?? Thunder Powers and will be using those so I may be a little heavy. I will leave the gear off as we fly from grass. Can you use regular CA on these??
Again thanks,
Jeff

maineflyer,

The Piaget I own is made of 5mm EPP. I fly over grass at a local soccer field so none of my planes have landing gear on them. Unless i get into real trouble I bring them in into the wind and set them down nose up, tail down in the grass.

I used Loctite Stick and Seal (Walmart) on the Piget because it is made of EPP. Welders will also work fine but is harder to find. You will be surprised on the sturdiness of TechOnes planes, especially the mid wing planes that use a lot of 1mm carbon reinforcing. They are very well thought out and strong. I use 3S 500 milliamp batteries on my foamies to keep the weight down.

Regards,

Hankg

maineflyer,

Check out the all up weight on both planes and go for the lighter plane. I didn't realize the size of the Piaget until it arrived at my house. It doesn't look like much in the box, but when you start putting everything together, you end up with a lot of airplane. Mine comes in at 8.5 oz without the battery, so add in the weight of your battery and you will have an idea of the AUW your motor will be dealing with.

The directions are hard to read due to the poor picture quality. Use Tallflyers build thread to supplement. I think the build protocol is basically the same for both planes.

It's a great plane to fly and with the airbrakes (I pinned them on the wing with straight pins rather than gluing), the plane will almost stop on a dime when you cut throttle.

Post Script...check this out
