Question
CT-114 Tutor Snowbird Model

Does anyone out there know of any RC models of a CT-114 Tutor? I am in the market for a new model and have always wanted a Tutor model. I don't really care what the model is, i.e. EDF, Nitro DF, Turbine, etc. Even a prop-driven would be ok, but I don't really see how a prop Tutor would look right.

Thanks,

Good luck trying to finding a Tutor kit etc. zero that I am aware of...
That said rumor has it that Yellow Aircraft own a set of moulds for a D/F version, you could try contacting them and asking if they plan on producing a kit??? Put me down for one as well please Yellow

Snowbirds

Sunspot- do you have any pics. or specs. on size? I have seen a few scratch built D/F, turbine and prop versions over the years, pitty there is no kits available...as I just do not have the time to scratch build one. I would love to have one the right scale/size that would take either 90 D/F or 12 lb thrust turbine.
I actually have a T-500 (13.5 lb thrust) turbine powered Cermark MB339 painted up as a Snowbird... flys great. If you want to see some video of it flying check out my friends web site http://www.rcsites.net/jetset/index.html
This is about as close as I will get to the real deal anyway until someone does a Tutor jet kit

if you can find a Tweet(cessna) and move the tailplanes up than it'll look quite a bit like a CT-114. they're both small twin engine trainers with the clamshell cockpit. Only difference in the position of the elevators and the size. Otherwise they're almost exactly the same. Right down to the cockpit guages. Hope that helps

There are plans for a .46 glow pusher in RCM. Go to their site to see them. Foam core wings and canopy are available from someone. Bob Holoman (sp?) I think. Had retracts too. I think it was in July 94-ish time frame.

pimp_squeak,

The tweet is a twin engine plane. The CT-114 is single engine. Due to this the aft and mid sections of the plane (tweet) looks very different.

My mistake skyhawk, they sure look similar....but I guess you're right, went to my local airshow the other day and the T-37 has jet nozzles just rear of the cockpit. Oh well, in profile they look similar.

I see this is a very old thread but if folks are willing to wait a bit (another year or so) we are making molds for a Tutor from this basic plug. Length is 58" and it will be pretty scale. Designed for 110mm EDF or turbines.

Looking good... Heck just another year for this thread is nothing, keep me posted at least Iam a Snowbirds fan bigtime and one for 110mm EDF would be great. I actually have a similar size scratch built one I purchased from a friend and built many a moon ago, originally intended for small turbine but would be a good EDF candidate also, needs a bit of work still to convert though and I was worried scale inlet size maybe a little restrictive for EDF at this smaller scale? Do you have scale inlets???

I didn't build the plug - am only responsible for finishing it, building the wings, the tail, making the molds, first flyable prototype....

They certainly look scale but I haven't actually measured them that way yet. They are big enough for 90mm FSA for sure and I think 110mm would not be an issue but I'd have to actually measure them.
