Quiet Flyer Magazine article Review -


Carefull Packing in a big box with lots of TLC & Bubblewrap

I added the rudder to give this plane 4ch control. I also dialed in some down thrust per the QF reccomendation.

This motor will handle 3S Lipo if you want. Battery Compartment is plenty big enough for any of the mid sized 3S Lipos. ie Tanic 1500, TP 1320 etc.

I put on bigger wheels and set the LG a bit more forward to avoid noseovers. No problem ROG from grass or handlaunch.

Very Regal looking in the air and a delightfully easy plane to control. Cruise around at 1/2 throttle or scoot around at full throttle. Either way, this plane performs flawlessly.

$188.00 Shipped Conus / Paypal

Thanks Tom, Couple of things I forgot to mention. Weight without battery is 15 oz.

I have a full set of spare decals (NIP) included. Wing attachment has been upgraded from a wood screw to a Nylon wingbolt with blind nut. Secure and safer too.

Excellent range with Rx/Lightenna. Full control , no glitch for as far as you can see it.

Wing and tail feathers are built up balsa and mylar covering. Fuse is blown plastic. NO FOAM!

The bumped cowl and high wing cut a "Nostalgic" profile on a lazy Sunday afternoon!

This plane is built strong and straight. A sweet little flyer.

Lann - I like the 10 x4.7 best. Lots of thrust to fly nice and slow. Really stretches duration to 10min or so. Loops from level flight. Lazy figure 8's.

The 9x7 flys much faster for zooming around. Crisp rolls at higher speeds. Really cooks coming out of a dive for a low pass. Around 6min duration at full throttle.

Both props are included so you can have it either way to suit your own flying style.

This is a 1930's era plane. One of the first non supported wings. And very effecient too. I think its kind of classy looking. Not your average Cessna.
