hi fellows, i have this one on the way from megahobby. i've built more guillows kits than i can remember, but most were many years ago and were flown control line with cox 049 motors. this will be my first r/c conversion. there is a lot of great information on these threads (and very beautiful models!). the main thing i've learned is to keep the models light. i think i can build this with components on hand. i searched, no threads on this one yet?

regards.....rob

Hi Rob,

I think is actually a new one - Guillow just released it not so long ago. So you might be one of the first people doing a conversion.

Yours, gupi

hi gupi,

thanks for the reply! i too think it's a newer kit since it's laser cut. i've built one of those before (the se-5) and wouldn't it be nice if they used this method on all of their models! along with the beaver this one was also released:

and of course the beaver:

i'm just about to put an order in for some components. the plan is for a power up 250 slow fly from headsuprc, a 10amp esc, and 2s batteries in the 450mah range. am i on track as far as keeping this model light enough?

i have the fairchild 24 kit and also the sopwith camel which i may work on later this winter...hoping all goes well with the beaver first!

rob

Sounds definitely right - i use motors in the same range. I usually use 2s batteries with 600mAh. I think at this size you should aim for 200 to 250 grams ready to fly.

thank you, sir! i've got parts on the way for the beaver and the fairchild. i've got to clear my bench in the mean time. i'm just about finished with the beautiful new art-tech fokker triplane. mostly just some more carving left on that one so i can get my batteries to fit then i'll switch things over to balsa construction. can't wait to get started!

Ahen... Beaver

Flys from land, haven't maidened it off water yet. Having trouble lining up a camera person and a retrieval vessel so I have yet to maiden it off water although the floats work great.

Has 6 linear servos: rudder, elevator, alerons, and flaps.

If you build one, you might want to add a hint of dihedral and twist the wing tips up. The narrow hershy bar wing tends to like to stall and as always it's FAST.

I used a carbon fiber rod instead of a balsa stringer for the top wing (for lack of a better name) spar. Can pick the whole model up by the wing tip.

Lets see some videos of these things working from water.

this is my latest guillows build.i liked the p-40 as it has alot of room up front for the battery,servos,and hardware.there is no problem with this plane being tail heavy.

ocminimoto.....your model looks great! i noticed in the plans in my kit that there is a provision to add 4 degrees of dihedral for the flying version of this model. is that about what you added to yours? i'm just about ready to start the build, but may loose my work table to thanksgiving set up . should be able to start building it just before the weekend.

Rob, nope mine's a real Hershey bar wing. 0 degrees dihedral because of the carbon rod I used for the topmost wing spar. It doesn't like to bend at all. Needed to add as much wing tip twisting as I could get with a steam kettle. If I was to do it again I might add a hint.

I don't know if the flying dihedral recommendation is for rubber or electric power. I'm leaning towards rubber free flight.

Thanks!!!

Phil, I'll see what I can do. Cheers!

Hey Phil.
Had an update to post and there seems to be something wrong with the links on the front page to my models. If I click on the T-28 link it takes me to a Cessna 172 build and the Skyraider link takes me to the T-28 thread.
