If I was really good, I could probably execute a VTOL with my T___T 60, but only with the Saito 1.15 on it!
Hehehe...Mike, I actually flew my Hangar 9 PTS P51 yesterday in that wind (no training crap on it)....it was interesting but I survived
The only reason I keep that plane is for days like yesterday, lol. The Twist would be a handful to get down in that wind!
On a side note, I have about 75% of the T___T 60 built and it is doing fine. Couple issues though: Had to replace a clevis on one of the control rods, they gave me the wrong nuts for the tail feathers (in fact one wouldn't even fit!) and I am missing the throttle pushrod tube. Looks like the ASP 91 will be a good fit.....you wouldn"t have a pic of your throttle set up would you?
I like that that motor goes in awithout any mods on the cheeks and it looks like the throttle pushrod can go right over the tank
