Great Another pylon Racer! what not to love about them?!

do you think it would be possible to turn this Cassut for I.C power Peter? it's not a common sight to see one at the field.

looking forward to see your finished.

Is your AcroWot artf or kit Chris? I used a laser 80 on mine, i was planning to use a laser 75 at first but i figured out that it has the same dimensions as the 80, so i sad why not. Mine is the Kit version and the engine fitted quite all right, a tight squeeze but no mods at all. If yours is the Artf I believe you might have more room with an 80.

Hi simon

Yes, that explains a lot of things, thanks!. Do you still own the model? do you think a good modern 46 engine would be enough for this kind of model or a 55 or 60 is a must?

Thank you again for your kind reply.

Hi Simon

did you used a normal plastic engine mount for the kwik fly or you mounted the engine to the firewall from the back plate? the space in the engine compartment is very small if i recall.

Kind regards

Ahh....So much mystery sometimes in names of these formula racers, never heard of vomet Comet, i tried a quick search on the net and couldn't find nothing, not even a cassut with a shark's mouth.

but i would fancy one of these cassut 3's , they look so slick, I imagine on with a slightly stretched fuselage and maybe a little narrower with somewhat and old school construction with a carved turtle deck instead of sheeting and perfectly adequate for I.C or E something similar like these new Electric formula One class


Getting excited now! ..whatever it would be bring it on peter!

looking forward

24/08/2018 20:45:45 might get lucky Erfolg. as far as i know Peter has a soft spot for pylon racers, what's there not to love after all, ralativley easy to build not bulky to store and maintain and loads of fun. i prefer them most when they are in the .40 to 46 size engine size. I came across this video on youtube on a restored pylon racer




It also has my lucky number on it ;-P, so who knows, maybe i start the temptation on peter. :-P

Reading the above is enough to give me the itch to start building one, is this already released as a free plan or we have to wait?

Are there any plans for the future to make a Res-eagle with an electric motor?

That wing is big and wide, i bet once it catches a thermal it stays there for ever!

05/01/2018 16:10:06

Wow that’s a big wing😮, sure you dont need spoilers to land that thing? I hope it will end as a pull out plan, its the perfect model for those lazy hot summer days chasing a thermal, i bet it will float forever.

lovely model with a very original and pleasant shape, I hope one day it will come as a free plan. and maybe as an more easy to build it your self model, those formers and fuselage sides would be a pain to cut without a laser cutterdisgustwink something like the old stilletto maybe?..

Anyway...well done! and keep it up.

Fake 3003 might have a black output shaft too, one of our club member had 4 of them, there internal pcb board was literally rubbish, my 4 yrs old could solder even better.

Why not using some glass cloth inside and on the undercarriage ply along maybe with some doublers on the fuselage side, it should be plenty strong.

I suggest a Hawker Tomtit Biplanewink

A 57 inch wingspan

for electric and possible IC aswell


Thread: Destiny, My new design.

Very interesting a good looking model, I would love to see a Vacuum formed cowl for destiny, it's not that that I'm not able to make it but is sure will make it faster to build and even better for a mass build.

Well done peter, great Looking model as always.

Whats for Next? ..always looking forward to that

Any way here's mine fitted with the Laser 80, the ARTF model i believe has a much wider cowl so a laser 70 should fit very nice. since i dont use pressure feed from the exhaust i was thinking to use a flexible exhaust, fabricate a nice P-Clip from a piece of brass and attach it to the undercarriage ply plate so to direct the exhaust better under the aircraft. laser's and acro-wot such good British them!

regards Daniel

I dont remind mine as being overpowered or with unlimited vertical performance, but if with the 70 you wont need any front ballast, then go for it.
