Wow!
Thanks a million! That directed me to some great information. Found some good Spektrum info. after I did some searching about the receivers.

This plane is so awesome looking! Plus it looks like it flies so nice..
I wish this came out in a Micro size as well.

Thanks for the replies, big help.

I loved the looks of this plane, and at the price, I had to have one. It does fly about good as it looks too. Felt really nose heavy to me on the ground, but after it takes off, it's nice and smooth and just does it's thing. A great little plane!

I like it too! It's on my short list, but I just got an Escapade 61, so it may be a while.

I am certified INSANE! I tell you -INSANE, but one lucky insane guy!

Late last night with 5 Monocoupe's left in stock @ HK, I figured it was now or never. Filled the cart, and placed the order. Man, am I glad I did it, because they are totally sold out this morning...

Proud new owner of a Monocoupe! Yippeee....It's the simple things in life.. ha ha..


Not sure when I will give it the maiden flight, but I am stoked! Will get it assembled and probably just stare at it for a few days..

A bit more flight hrs. on the trainer, and I will be ready to roll!

Wish me luck!

That is the most enthusiastic post I have ever read on RC Groups. Congratulations on being the proud parent of the Monocoupe

You'll love it. Even if it sits for months, you won't be an less excited. Mine is hanging on a wall in my house where I see it almost every day. It's just a great bird to look at and it is a joy to fly!

I too saw that they where in stock in the USA warehouse yesterday and pull the trigger and purchased one! So hopefully soon I'll be another proud owner! Maybe this will motivate me to build the true 1/4 scale that I've had plans for over 3 years now.

And now after reading the history lesson in the 1st post, seems this plane used to be just a few miles down the road from me.

Hello everyone,

It seems that the screws that hold the front part of the main wing in place are too short. Before putting the wing in place, when I try the screws, only about 2mm are left to screw on the fuselage.

I actually tried to find longer screws like the originals, but it seems like that, at that diameter, the supplied ones are the longest manufactured.

Did anybody experience this?
Did anyone had issues with the screws not being able to hold the wing in place?
Any suggested alternative/fixes?

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Regards,
dg

Hi All,

I stand corrected on all of my previous comments. My LB has been nose heavy all along, using nanotech 2200s. I was compensating with up elevator and that was giving me too much climb rate under power.

Rookie mistake! Showing that I've only been flying for 6mths. I discovered it when the battery slipped backwards out of position, I thought LB was way out of trim! Corrected the elevator trim and she flew hands off like an absolute dream - cornered fantastically and looped like on rails

So next question - where has everyone found CoG? I'm in the process of gradually shifting backwards until I find that sweet spot.

Best Battery For Durafly Monocoupe

Fellows, just finished my " Little Butch" and what a charmer.

Which batteries would be best fit for this Monocoupe? I
believe the power connector is an XT-60?

appreciate your help, LNLP
