Pilatus Pc-6 Turbo Porter Parkflyer


Before I Start the PIGI 3D my girlfriend gave me for my Birthday present, I will try to squeeze in this Turbo porter Parkflyer. Thinking of a Speed 280 6 v direct, classic Wing, Deprom fuselage. Does anyone know with what I can lightly coat the model for looks and Protection? Incidentally my 5 scratchbuilt Turbo Porter.

Its easy to build


You do not really need a plan. Take a good 3 side view and a simple wing ( Flatt bottom)

Some ideas for the colouring;

Did not get to far yet. Burned my hand covering the wing. Speed 300 6v with the smallest Graupner Folding Prop. Powerfull but draws ca. 11 Amps. In Trust we Trust...

Thanks for sharing the links. I've got to bump the Turbo Porter up on my list of planes to build. It's just a fantastic airplane. I'd have to build a bigger one though, about 60"ws, w/ ailerons.

Well, now you've done it! You got me all jazzed up to do the Porter. I've already got too many planes I want to build. Since mine would be larger than Parkflyer size, I posted a thread in the Scale Group: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...hreadid=180979 and referenced your thread for the fantastic links. I probably wouldn't start it for several months (But, I've said that before). Good luck on your TP.

I love the Porter!!!

Is one of my fav aircrafts.

Got two of them and still bought another two from Sqdn55. Sad they went out of business.
