Been flying thirty years plus, all ic. Would love to try a war bird, but have been put off by lots of things. IE, scale finishing, reretracts,washout, elliptical wings,canopies, correct colours, so called heavy wing loading leading to fast landings. Perhaps it's not possible, but a low wing loading, easy build model that looks like a warbird, built to fly with enjoyment when flying as a sports model. Cheers. ps I/c if poss.

Well I believe that sometime there may be a MIles Magister coming. Mine but via a different scource.

There are quite a few Between the wars Warbirds that might fit your list.

I plan to build your Werewolf Peter, it looks like a warbird fly boy 3.

With all this spare shop time I decided to make a balsa and ply dummy motor for my Cub.

Sorry to read that La Grotte is off limits Chris. Maybe you could find a small corner in your house to carry on with some parts of the build. I do all my building in a 5' 6" x 6' 6" [1.9 x 2.0]metre closet. My wife quilts in a larger room and I build airplanes, that's what will keep us sane over the upcoming months.

I live in the middle of Canada. I have tried the Flugboot off snow, but not water.

When I tested my fan I got 559 grams thrust at 33.85 Amps for 351 Watts of power. The basic FMS 50mm fan from Banggood.

Thanks Tim - I bought an E-Flite "Power 15" motor for mine, which is 35mm dia so I will see how inventive I can be and make it fit. I found an "Ken" doll at a boot sale, but he weighs 195 grams before surgery so I don't think i will be using him. My nephew has a 3D printer and doesn't mind making me parts.


I see you are inserting your battery from inside the cabin. I'm thinking of doing the same, but until I join and cover my wing which is still in 3 main pieces, and mount my motor I'm not sure where my C of G will end up.

Hi Barry - I cut out my motor mount box with my Dremal scroll saw.

I will post up a link to download the STL files for the parts I use, so far it’s the end rib and flap hinge.

Tim - were you still planning on adding more 3D files. I wouldn't mind making a set of your motor parts and also your pilot for my Li'l Cub.

Your finished model is looking very nice by the way.

The top and bottom pieces fit into the plate that mounts to the firewall and I am adding triangular pieces behind the motor mounting plate.

I am making a plywood mount for mine.

I've just cut out the parts and still have a lot of clean-up to do.

I bought some replacement wheels for the E-flite Timber. E-flite: EFL5258

They are made of a nice firm foam, 4 1/4 dia and 1 1/2 wide with a 0.13 hole that can be drilled larger. I haven't installed them yet so no picture in my album.

I have the same problem with my 2nd generation DX6 with the rechargable pack. It seemed to last longer with the regular AA's.

Would a nylon insert locknut work?

Using the take a snapshot button works nicely also. Use the "Take a snapshot" button in the "Edit" dropdown tab, drag a box around the part you want, then "Control P" or the print tab and print.
