What's a 'UM' version? I don't know what you mean.

The wing is semi-symmetrical, but I don't know what the airfoil is. Perhaps I can post a drawing I have in AutoCAD of a cross-section for you.

No under camber. The wing is slightly curved upward making for a gradual dihedral.

I can get you the measurement for the chord at the root, but at the tip it is 'zero' for, at the tip the wing ends. Or, where along the span would you like the chord?

UM = ultra micro version of the rifle like the parkzone ultra micro planes

I thought I would to to make a small version using the guys from an parkzone UM.

if you can post a drawing that'd be great. What I was really looking for is dimensions of the wing, and tail.

for example

what is the width at wing tip and near the center

what is the width and length of the tail.

I am just trying to figure out dimensions for the version I plan on making.

thanks a million!

I had my Rifle out for a quick rip or two around the field Saturday. I am definitely more comfortable flying it at WOT for protracted durations now. I am a little surprised at how a pilot can acclimate and what had you so puckered a while back is now quite manageable.

Just a couple quick questions...

Is it possible to fit at least a 36mm inrunner in this?

What is the diameter (prop hub) of the firewall? A folding prop would be nice for larger motors (if they are fittable), it seems as though the prop would tend to catch and bust the prop+firewall

No.


28mm would be the largest.

I was at my LHS today picking up the Christmas present (Radian Pro) that my wife doesn't know she is getting me yet and he told me that the Rifle he ordered for me in late May should FINALLY be here this Friday...looks like I'm getting two planes for Christmas this year.

Congratulations, and I like how you put that..."that my wife doesn't know she is getting me yet ." Ha ha ha. LOL.

Yea, we got in a small shipment of Rifles just the other day. They should all be on their way to wherever. There will be more in about another month. That shipment is already on the water (in transit).

Unfortunately, here where I live (in the Midwest), I got my two Rifles hanging up on padded hooks in the garage and I don't plan on doing any flying until it gets warm enough for me (around March or April?).

Tim, do you know if the ones coming in from here on out equipped with the wing spar?

Man, no flying the Rifle for a few months?! Ouch! We have been getting heavy frosts at night for the last week but it warms up to 55 or 60 during the day.

March or April??? Dude, you need to move south!!! There may be a few weeks in January and February that are too cold to fly (for me anyway) but other than that its year 'round baby!!!
