Suitcase Series - Modified Cessna 180 (Pat Tritle)


This is the Dare Engineering/Pat Tritle designed Cessna 180 free flight model, modified for R/C and glow power with scale design changes made. Engine choice will likely be a Cox .010, though I may use a Pee Wee .020 with throttle sleeve.

I made a Guillows or West wings version of this aircraft with a TD.010 up front, flew brilliantly, somehow it would ROG no problem even though it had no rudder.
Good luck with all your .010 creations, they are all beautiful.....

Dan,

Guillow's RC 1/2A conversions would be fun projects for SMALL:
Guillow's Zero with Ace Pulse Rudder Only and Diesel Power (1 min 55 sec)

Corsair guillow's (4 min 18 sec)

Well, Pat's designs do better but there have been a lot of Guillows planes at SMALL.

Cool..I did a Guillows Zero back in the late 70s had a baby bee and was free flight..it flew pretty good overall...till the pine tree got in the way..was pretty funny to see the motor fling out the other side of the tree still running
