My suggestion would be 1" invasion stripes under one wing surprised me how they stand out

Nice work Tom, have you put a contrast colour on the underside, I only ask as I find it relatively easy to loose orientation without, mine is the 48" version and pretty quick on a 4s setup

Hi Beb hows things? all well I trust, just to add my tucano is still flying though its now 4s powered and a much more scale jet trainer like flight envelope, lord knows how its survived my landings but it has wink in fact the only damage its suffered so far was a broken elevator joiner while negotiating my narrow shed door blush

Hi Geoff nice work and I like the cockpit arrangement it should improve access to the interior somewhat, mine flew again at the weekend and is still a great model, I have uprated the power to 4s which required a smaller prop but nothing else, she is a bit faster but more importantly accelerates better with better vertical climb.

Hi Tom since building mine, which originally flew on a 3300 3s I've converted to a 2650 4s and a smaller prop now pulling 600w and the flight envelope is much improved

As in the past I'm happy to build more than one and a mid/low wing aerobat would be nice alongside the skywriter

And only 47 voters !

If 47 build then it'll be a pretty active thread still, and if they all get to the July Greenacres dates it'll be a very busy weekend too


Oh I'd like to point out to whoever mentioned the complex stringers on the sky writer, the DB Barnstormer from 2014 didn't put to many of and yes mines still flying yes

oops sorry wrong thread move it over please mods

good to see a few are still out there, I have to say mine still draws much interest every time she's out at the club and never a mishap with here too though on calm days I do find she tends to come in quite hot, I put it down to the thin wing section producing near zero drag, I'm betting the design slopes quite well Chris.

Thread: Ebay sellers...

Does anyone know the ebay seller darbrorcmodels ? I received an order from them today along with this letter, I was aware that some ebay rc accessory prices were going up some but on checking his shop sticker price and his Eshop prices against what I paid I was horrified to see that I paid nearly double for 4 propellers,blush the reasons for this he details in the letter and given I frequently purchase from different sellers and have never had a communication such as this I wondered if any one else had, yes I've deleted the discount code yes

I think I'd want more than £9 to take it off his hands and into the bin laugh


Much more Geoff I've just consigned two much bigger and arguably in better condition to the local recycle facility, perhaps I should've fleabayed them cheeky

That all sounds like the seller has cause for raising a complaint with ebay against the buyer, good luck with that
