New Product

Hobby People BH Models Gilmore Red Lion Racer 40 size


For a upcoming RC Groups review. Going electric naturally.

Initial impression is this is the BEST model yet from Black Horse. See Hobby Peoples website for further details

Gillmore Red Lion Review


Looking forward to your review Tommy. I plan on ordering from BH ASAP and converting to EP also. I have the Hobby Lobby Pilot One Wedell Williams but plan on selling it to pay for the BH model.
The HL version flies very well but lots of drag from the big cowl.
Best,
Dick

Hey where's the respect?
That's very encouraging Tommy, thanks. I have the Curtiss P-36 - built but not yet maidened....it's my first BIG plane and I'm hoping to find someone with more experience to be available for the BIG day.

The Red Lion was ordered today and should be here the 22nd...
Roscoe's waiting, we'd better let's git ta build'n
(hey just FYI - I graduated SUNY Farmingdale 1967 and my roomate and best friend was from East Islip)

Thanks Sammy. I came close to changing my mind and going for the Waco YKS-6 from Hobby Lobby. It'l still remain on my list but the Red Lion - it's just too hard to resist. It has such an irresistable presence....
I'm trying study how to choose a balanced power system for it and so far a Turnigy SK3548-900 has all I've come up with. I may call Heads Up RC and see what they suggest. I don't want a screamer, I fly mostly scale but I also want some extra juice if it's needed so I think around 800 watts is my target at this point.

Also consider a motor that will turn a big enough prop to clear that cowl. You dont want the prop to stall.

I copy that my friend, thanks Sammy...I'd like to remain as scale on the prop size as I can but not at the risk of sacrificing good performance.
FedEx Saturday.....

FedEx dropped off the Red Lion this afteroon all intact. First impressions are very positive.
I'd like to add more but I'll letTommy fill in the details during his review.
Whew, she's pretty though...!
