This one really looks great (two feet of wingspan more would have made me order one immediately!)

This is my favorite color scheme:

Jan,

I pulled the image into a page by itself, not the pop-up window...
Then I was able to obtain the link to the scheme. It is found here...

To have it open you need to link it as an image and I don't think they allow html IMG linking on RCG...
You have to upload the image to the site to get it to display.
This prevents virus propagation I think...
Here is the image, I have attached it to the posting using the Advanced tool with the attached files box, located below the text field in that advanced tool window...

That is a nice version -- never found that one when I was looking at color schemes. If/when mine needs a recover just might do this one.

campbelltf, if you mean flap deflection I have three position -- Up/ 10 degree/25 degree. Maybe I should have more to provide more drag and less lift and so that I can land in a flatter attitude? I cannot get more than 40 with my set up and as I almost looped when I did have 40, have never gone back to that and played around.

I suspect better piloting would also reduce the scrapping! We do have grass as well as tarmac and it does fine on the grass strip. By the way still have not tried out my 4 blade props.

Greetings All

Well I have pretty much so decided to get started on the C-130 as soon as I finish up a few details on the J-3 Kitten build I am working on right now. have reviewed the thread and pulled the kit out of the kit stash pile. Have also ordered some motors from Heads Up RC and have 4 Castle Talon 15 ESC's handy. So it looks like I will have all the needed goodies on hand shortly.

Will start a build thread as soon as I get started. Need to figure out a scheme, hopefully something a bit different or offbeat.

Thanks, Brian!

Wow, Congratulations!

Looked like a JATO assist takeoff. You have some powerful motors on her. More than enough for getting her out of most any issue if you need to power up and go around. Very fast flier, not really scale like but still a pretty bird in the air.

Very nice work. Thanks for sharing. I'm curious about your process on the canopy windows. It looks like you painted the entire canopy, then cut the windows out and attached a plastic sheet on the inside. Is that correct?

I realize this is a dated thread so I'm hoping someone will answer. I'm interested in this plane.

Again, very nice work.
