Pilot QB slope 16


Hello All!

Iīm looking for a slope plane From Pilot (Japan) circa 1985; I was in love the first time I saw it, but never could have one, so I wonder if any of you have the plans or a 3d view in order to build a replica.
The plane is called QB slope 16 and is little all balsa sloper with a wingspan of 1.6 mts. I will add a pic from the catalogue a soon as possible in order to help your memory

Thanks in advance

Slope QB??


I flew one of those about 15 years ago and I as I remember it was quite a pig in the air. (Coulda been the builder though) I remember trying to trim it out for a guy and it was just slow and sluggish and not a joy to fly.

You might be better off with something a little more modern. The Multiplex Lucky is a good sport sloper. Heck even the Sig Ninja will fly much better that the Pilot kit.


By the way, nice avatar (my Me-109)

What a pity! the plane looks nice, but certainly there have been a lot of progress on the slope field on the last 20 years
Many thanks for the advice!

BTW, I didnīt know where the precious me 109 I use as avatar came from (it was sent to me by a friend). Now, Iīve visited your page and Iīm very impressed with the paint scheme of your models. Nice work!
Of course if you prefer it, I will change my avatar, I donīt want to dissapoint you in any way.

QB16


Hi Karellen, I still have a QB16 and the box it came in.

Still have the plans as well, don't know how iwould get a copy of them to you...any suggestions???

I found it to be a good gentle slope soarer reasonably manouverable (once I sealed the gap between the aileron and the wings)

I agree with the other guys ... a Ninja would be a better choice ...great little sloper.

Re: QB16


Thanks for the help, and sorry for the delay; a pine tree has just landed over my car and Iīve been very busy since!

I cant imagine an easy way to get the plans from australia, and also think that a modern design will be nice, so, donīt bother, and many thanks anyway

Kind regards
