here are a new plane to share... A easy to build Pilatus PC6 Turbo Porter.
The idea start trying to make a own modified version of the Blue Baby with a porter body (like DKChris make) ....

but I like a smaller plane and no plans appear on any place.... well I make a Porter with a blue baby under chamber wing and I hate it.... (calm wind is no option on my "airfield")

then the proyect born and the result is here:
WS 90cm (Lower aspect ratio than real and big chord )
Long 75cm (enlarge to keep the trailing edge in the same place)
Weight without battery 350grs
AUW 500grs
motor RCtimer 2208 1800kv
ESC 20A (15A at full throttle)
prop APC 7x4

after destroy the first fuselage on the first maiden flight with the new wing (experimental airline tecnic) I make some modifications and flew a sucessfull maiden flight today..
climb excellent, good low speed, loops and rolls without work, enter to flat spin easily if you want and recover gently, good ruudder authority... I'm really happy with it.

the construction is easy: a simple fuselage box, some card board pieces on nose and the simple wing folded with a internal carbon spar.... the landing gear made with piano wire, tail wheel linked with rudder...
no video at the moment, but some pictures to start. Plans will be posted if there are some interest.

see you soon!!!

the mini pilatus is really pleasent to flight and good for some aerobatics and my 1800kv motor has enought power to climb vertical... maybe a bigger version will keep all the goods and gain more wind resistence.... next week I'll start the build of 110cm Pilatu,s the plans are ready just need some time

Yeah...I founded and downloaded... they are perfect for perfect scaled planes using rib and planking. .. but my short time makes me prefer simplified boxy planes, and share the plans to guys with the same trouble than me or beginners
