My 1st Petrol Trainer Irvine tutor 40 (with 46)

Hello everyone,

HERE I WOULD LIKE SOME HELP/ AS I AM A 15 YEAR OLD BEGINNER! WITH MY NEW IRVINE TUTOR 40, MAYBE SOME REVIEWS OR EVEN VIDEOS HELP ON HOW TO FLY and general help with building it- so now i will explain what i have got.. what i need help with.... thanks

as recommended by a few on Rcgroups and by my new club in Suffolk- i have decided to buy my petrol trainer - the Irvine tutor 40

I just bought it Saturday for 164 including the OS max 46 engine.
(69.99- plane kit) (66.99- engine(new)) and a few extra's like 2 glowplugs (1 free) 2 props (1 free) and some free fuel)

I allready have my Futaba Gear -(which i may need some help with / as im not sure whether it will be any good - reffered to later)

i will build my plane over the next week, few days.. and hopefully have completed the wing joining tonight.......

Offcourse i will have an instructor at my club teach me on a buddy lead, when i come to flying it...

Now my futaba gear-
its an old set Futaba Fp-t6nl Tx with compatible Rx that came with it, with crystals, Tx cell battery, and one old flight cell pack, and four standard servos
I cant really find any info on it apart from where we bought it from the set from, so heres the Ebay link -

First i started off with a little 4 chann. electric plane but thats quite useless and doesnt fly yet so i bought a petrol one (the irvine tutor 40)
which i know does fly
as i saw a member at my club with one, which i liked, but then he, is quite elderly and a begginer and i saw him crash his unfortunately that same day, but anyway,
all help appreciated..

please email me at for any random reason.... or just click here
or just post in this thread
