its all doable, get the 3 views and start cutting and folding

the problem with some of the scale planes is, especialy on the radial engine ones, the fuse gets pretty big and the prop that is specified doesnt stick out past the fuse very much and there hard to handle and launch, especially the 2548 class
in-lines make better planes for combat
Here is one pic that has three of your creations. Front and center with Sheepdog next to you. I have the corostang and the MiG-7 in the back. Pete Terry and Glen to round off the group. Terry had the latest creation from Area 52, an all foam Spitfire.

You always had one or two new creations at each event.
2010 was a good year.

Dang, I just realized. That Mig there is one of the first I built back around 2002.

Hello Draftman. These are made by Slowakian Pilot and Constructor Jozef Barat. They do have a normal composite fuselage , balsa elevator and Abachi covered foam-core wings. The quality ist seddled very high, the price ist per piece about 85 Euro + shipping from Slowakia. If you like, I can provide contact via privat message to you.

This Heinkel He 100 is made complete from PU Foam in aluminium forms. Like a Revell or Airfix static model.

Is that foam or molded ? It looks like a quick build.

The ki-61 has a composite fuselage with veneer covered foam wing. Flying weight with 3S 20C 2200mAh lipo battery is around 700g.

Eventually I chose a 3S1P 3000mAh 20C LiPo, 40A ESC and a 1300kv outrunner for the model. The flying weight is 821g.

No one is posting here any more so I'll add a couple pics. They really don't fall into any rules as they are a .15 c/l and a .40.

I could give you a few engine suggestions if you post your question in another thread. This avoids the picture thread turning into discussion thread.

although It's not done...I'm nearing completion of my JK Aerotech Corsair.I still must install ailerons,throttle servo & switch.

I'll be flying this as a general sport it's powered by Saito 30 fs.The mount also fits various other I expect to be testing OS 25 FX...OS 32 F and also the Saito 40a fs.

Wgt. just under 2.5 lbs.It should be fun.
