After flying ARF's for years it's time to turn a stack of balsa into a flying machine! I'm going to build a sport scale model of the first real airplane I rode in as a kid, my Dad's 1939 BC-12 Taylorcraft. He and some partners owned and flew it in the early 1960's out of Park Cities airport in Dallas, TX. It had a red over white paint scheme very similar to the E-flite 450 electric taylorcraft arf . I initially bought some 1/4 scale plans but after seeing Carolina Customs laser cut with interlocking parts 1/5 kit, including a fiberglass cowl, I decided to go that route. I had built a little Comet taylorcraft 30 or so years ago that was rubber powered but just displayed it as a shelf model. I plan on putting a OS gt10cc gasoline motor in this one or possibly an OS 60 glow or OS 95 4 stroke depending on the best fit in the short cowling. Can't wait to get started!
