Any updates on the T-34? I was considering getting the ARF version. Also didn't know if one brand of .46 size engine would be better for this bird than another. I would like to get a 4-stroke, but that is a little cost-prohibitive right now.

Hi Guys,

Can anybody tell me which color of Ultracote the Yellow is on this plane (Hangar 9, t-34 ARF version)? I have to do a little "patching" on mine (due to an unplanned corn field incident), and their website (horizon hobby) lists 3 different shades of yellow. I have to mail order it, since my locality is hobby shop challenged, and I can't seem to tell which color shade it is. I apologize if this has been addressed, but my searching has led me nowhere, and I'm sure some of you guys will know. Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't have the original manual. But, I downloaded it from the website and I just didn't see it in there. Am I just missing it?

Just got a newer (white/red) T-34 from H9. So far I love everything about the plane.. The H9 retract install was very easy (a little sanding, line things up and call it good). I am still waiting on getting a powerplant for this guy, I was thinking of going with the SAITO .82GK. Anyone have any experience with this setup?

This plane to me had the most realistic flight feeling of any plane I have owned. My only complaint would be with the front retract if you are landing on a grass field. Eventually my front gear would twist when landing and the wire would bend slightly. I could straighten but it would do it again, getting worse each time.

I was thinking about trying a 2 1/2" wheel up front to help for this, as my primary field is grass. It fits but barely and it would be very easy to bind up..

What about using like a robostrut or something? There are a few posts showing people having a strut up front to help with shock, and it gives a nice scale look too...

I've had good luck with the kit supplied struts. PLenty of take-off's and landings with them. The only change I made was the main struts. I removed them from the units and then use my dremel to cut a notch to match the one supplied. I then use a fair amount of RED lock-tite to hold the strut and set screws in place. Since then, I haven't looked back. Mine is powered by a Magnum 46 with an 11X7 prop. It's quiet and damn fast.

Hi
Just bought the new version (white/red). Im not sure if Im going for an electric or an fuel engine on this bird. I have an OS 70 II that might fit but what about electric engines in this one ?? Has anyone tried electrify this bird, what kind of electric set up is used ??
Is the OS 70 too heavy (do I have to add lead at the tail) ?? What fuel engine is the most suitable (no lead attach to the nose or tail) ?

Does the new version have the same high speed landing as the old (yellow) one ?

Instead of adding lead, think of using a bigger battery, why carry dead weight when you could carry extra power for servos, etc.

I built the new red and white one and love the way it flys. I have a Saito .82 with a MAS 3 blade 12X8 with a TruTurn spinner. I started with a 13X8 2 blade but with the 3 blade it looks more scale and the .82 satio works really well with this prop on PowerMaster YS 20/20 fuel at about 9500 RPM.

I enclosed the front wheel well to keep out the goo and used 1/32 ply to build a A frame type enclosure. I also made the Flap modification detailed at the following RCU link: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_18...tm.htm#1893157.

The plane came it at 6 lbs 14 oz and I had to add 7oz of weight in the tail cone to balance. I used the stock retracts and they work fine a pavement.

This is a really fun plane to fly and always gathers attention at teh field.
