yea, that was a tricky part of the build on the Pitts. I was going to go the way you did, but didn't have enough quick connects on hand, so i ended up gluing them. If they ever come apart, quick connects will be on there.

The quick connects just seemed right to me so I went that route when I saw cdee's setup. For me it was the ply supports for the wings, that took time.

Bitting at the bit to see what's coming up from TH. know there's the micro yak. Are there plans for micro Slick or Pitts as well?

We don't know... I don't think... and those who do, aren't saying much... There is something in the works... and a lot of folks (including myself) are quite anxious to see what it may be.

We have a few things. I am convinced that Chris Jewett is an evil genius...the stuff he comes up with is way out there, but then he goes and finds a way to not only make it work, but make it work so well that you just kind of drop everything and gotta have one.

Here is a question for the Twisted Pros.... or anyone else... What is the best Twisted plane for flying in the wind? Not high winds, of course, but your average open-field, 10mph winds... The 32" planes will fly in it, but it can toss them around a little. How do the larger Twised planes do in the wind?

Out of the 32" line-up the Extra Slick is probably the best in the wind, followed closely by the Crack Yak.

The 39" planes are better, especially with a slightly larger battery.

The Telinks are of course the best in the wind, though. Put a 2200 on them and they handle it pretty well.

I'm loving my big RCF SBach 342 @ 48.8" on 3S 1800.

Plane weighs 27 oz. AUW ready to fly.

A couple weeks ago, our club had a picnic and 9/11 tribute. Local fire, police, and two boy scout troops were there. The day was windy, very windy... around a steady 20 mph,

Once all the ceremonies were over, the club president was on the PA trying to get some guys to fly and put on a demo for the huge crowds.

Seems as if every one was timid due to the wind.

Not me - I grabbed my SBach which was out for display and took stage center. Stationary harrier rolls and the like were a blast. The club prez announced that if I was out in the wind flying a light weight foamie, then the balsa should be in the air too. That's all it took and more joined in.

The point is, the big foamies fly very well in the wind. Since they are profile, they will exhibit some tendency to weather-vane. I also have the 44" Telink SU-29 that flies well in wind but the SBach shows less weather-vane effect and flies about as close to balsa as I have experienced.

After reading that Cody, "Doctor Evil"popped into my mind. Yeah that's the ticket Chris Jewett is the Doctor Evil of foamies! There's no doubt what is in store for us mortals will have us grinning.

Ospreys are way bigger than this one. How about a Peregrine Falcon?

The 49" Sbach laughs at the wind I feel sorry for the windy when I fly my Sbach in it

I have a blast flying all my TH planes in the wind. They're just fun windy or not.

Anyone know how many watts the newer 24g 1450kv on 2s with the 8x4.3 would pull? How much vertical can these 32" planes expect even with the landing gear running on 2s? Thanks

Not much...40 watts maybe.

When running the 24g 1450 KV motor on 2S use a 9x4.7 prop. That should get you an easy 65 watts which is plenty of power for truly unlimited vertical and hover pull-out. Only use the 8x4.3 on 3S with that motor.
