Here's mine - just flew the maiden today. The flight went well - can't believe how slow it flies! Also, here's a pic from airliners.net of the full scale plane I intended to model.

Scott,
Looks really nice, flew my 180 last week. Your right it does fly slow but that one of the things I like about it.

Scott,

I like how it came out. You did a good job making it look like the real one in the picture.

I need to finish up a new flyable one for myself again. I miss flying the Cessna, it's a real pussycat.

Thanks everyone for the comments! If I get a volunteer for the camera, I'll try to record some flying video.

It's a great kit Brian - I really enjoyed the build. I'm sure I'll build another - maybe a floatplane next time.

This was my third balsa build, my first using Titebond II instead of CA, and my first using a magnetic build board. I didn't realize how much I disliked CA and T-pins.

I'd like to build one of these and start with a brushless outrunner. Does anyone have any suggestions on a motor mount which does NOT use a stick?

Thanks

On my old one I did use a CDROM that was not on a stick. I installed another firewall to mount the motor. Very simple.

The only problem is you have to carve out the nose cone to get clearance for the bell.

Might want to try the little Hacker A10. It is small enough that it will fit in the nose cone area.

Each outrunner is different in diameter and depth so you just have to pick one and then make the motor mount.
