Well, let's wait and see - quite a few model shops here in Germany are complaining that too many TwinStar II's seem to be going to the United States?!

Hmm, I'm deffo ditching the brushless idea. Thanks for the video Jurgen, that performs WAY better than the old Twinstar on 8 Cells!! Just wish it would hurry up and arrive here in the UK!

Any thoughts as to gearboxes, especially for aerial photography? tt

I would rather try going for the "long can" Permax 480 with flux rings, 3 cells Kokam 3200 and Graupner Cam Slim 6.6x3". (But make sure you have an ESC which can handle 4 servos at 12V).

Decor applied for the RC-Line User meeting this weekend. Total Weight (RTF) is now 1302g (which is actually 12g less than before! Reason: Instead of my wife's digital kitchen scales, I used my precision scales ).

Yes, now I would like for them to come out with the TS jr. About 60% that size for park flying. I always wondered if the Elapor was not conducive to smaller planes or something, or it seems they would redo the Pico cub in Elapor. Maybe they will.

Beware, Tower Hobbies has put the picture of the Twin Star II on their site for the Twin Star, don't be fooled.

MultiplexUS site says late Aug 05. They also show the following planes as discontinued:

Cargo
Lupo
Movie Star
Pico Baby
Stuntman
Twin Jet
Twin Star

I would prefer something different, but in the PicoCub style: I was thinking of a Multiplex Elapor Biplane, something like a "PicoMoth" !?!?

Ciao, Piero

Why would you want it smaller for park flying? Just make it lighter.

I am with you on that idea Peiro!

Well, it was not too long ago I was dreaming of an Elapor Twin Star, so don't get me wrong, I just like to dream up planes I would like MPX to make! Like a Cessna Bird Dog and maybe a Porter. That is why I brought up the question of whether the elapor has the integrity to hold it's shape in a small plane, and would it be too heavy. My horizontal stab on the Easy star seems to occasionally droop a bit. Just thinking.

I am thinking that I have read here to use a light battery pack would require adding ballast to the nose. Jurgen do you have any thoughts on making it lighter, as in, how would you go about it? I have talked about gearboxes to slow it down. Didn't get a lot of positive response to that idea, although a lot of people use them on the TS I. Thanks, tt.
