Have you tried "spoilerons," very good at bleeding of speed on pattern models.

Takes a little setting up, but worth the effort.

Plans for the "60" size were only available from the designer. I borrowed a set from a friend.

Will take a few photo's when I get back home and post. Model to far on for a build thread.

The date on the plan is 1993, about the time FG kits started to appear and were quite expensive as most

came from the USA. The idea behind the design was to have an easily build competitive model that anyone

could build. The model is about 10% bigger over all, its not just that the moments have been stretched.

Nigel, It's 671/2 ins. I also flew his Rival, a great "go to" model.

Have a "60" size Chilli Wind in build at present, Just measured fuzz at 641/2 ins

nose ring to rear of rudder. Mr Delacole gave us some great airplanes.

This is along shot, but does anyone have any info on this model.

Designed by Keith Hart around 1984-85, one of the first turnaround

models. Plans and foam veneered cores were available at the time.

Cloth can now be got as light as .5 ozs. and is much stronger than tissue.

Tissue is just a light version of chopstrand mat.

All glass supplied in kits is what's known as "fibre glass tape", will do the job

but a little over kill.

It may no workout on the 60 size in the same place.

Go to one of the on line C of G calculators and a good place to start is 25% MAC.

This is as far foward as you should go. Move aft as needed. I usually work between


Thread: F3a type plans

There are hundreds of "F3A" designs. When Phil 9 asked for more up to date designs

I assumed modern day "2 metre" airplanes.

Here are a few more. Outerzone has the Typhoon 2+2 and over on RCU Papaone has his Harmonie.

Great designs and plans are for free.

Have used methonal to thin West System for a number of years now with great results,

The main reason for thinning the resin is to help reduce the amount of resin used as weight

can build up very quickly by using this method.

 As a small minus the resin will go off

faster but you will have plenty of working time. (Mix 50:50)

Thanks for the input guys. I think these two radios maybe worth a look at in time

as they seem to be popular with the home build drone set and quad racing.

Anyone tried this brand, sounds interesting and looks really smart.

AT 10 II or AT9 S, programming very much like Futaba.
