Ah Yes, My original BLue Movie is still in someone's cupboard and another is in a Canadian home. They just cannot be destroyed. Beats foamies and everything else for long life.

I have the 3 views of Bob Lyjak's Taperwing. As you say, it would have to be i.c. for a .52 FS but as I say, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak!!

The force is strong with you peter😉😁!

So many aircraft...So little time!!

If you could see my list of aircraft that I would like to build but just do not have the energy or patience, For example, the Waco Taperwing has been on my list for about 45 years!!

Oh yes please!!7bae52a5-6ae2-48ca-8601-62cd681c0664.jpeg

but please make it for IC too , .46 four stroke maybe?

How about a Bede BD8 ? Scaled for a nice 40 fourstroke or maybe something a bit bigger and suitable also for electric. Its small, constant chord wing , aerobatic and can easily fit in a small car.



Thread: Chris's Super 60 Build

Well I'll have my 50p on it being a 3ch Super 60 Daniel. I didn't spot any ailerons during one close in low pass it flew.....

Unlike the Junior 60, the S60 didn't have a huge amount of dihedral, but still turns well enough on just rudder inputs.

Do you have any idea how much is the dihedral of the ben buckle super 60? Would be possible to apply the aileron wing with the 3ch version dihedral? Thing is that with an almost flat wing it doesn’t look good to my eye.

02/03/2019 16:26:47

Thank you all for the feedback, one thing that I didn’t made clear is that I’m not exactly a beginner, its just that i have somehow a soft spot for this type of models. They are relaxed and reasonably fun on a calm summer day, and i also have a ben buckle radio queen that i think its a good contender to start build something that its easy going.

Looking again that video that i posted earlier, if its true that its the 3ch version, it doesn’t seem that struggles to do tight turns, and it looks that it has less dihedral too.

Hello to all

Hi Pete

Yes i know Slec has a wide selection of material but problem is since I’m from Malta its really a pain getting stuff here with the postage costs, hence why i have to improvise when building from plans. For example in this case, in order to build the fuselage i was already thinking to use 1/8th poplar ply instead of 3/32 balsa and 1/32 ply. Not because of balsa sheets right now i have plenty but 1/32 ply its a pain to get it. 1/8th lightply on the other hand i can get it easy.

kind regards

Following with great interest peter! I have a question tough, its regarding the rear balsa dowels.

if for some reason one cannot find balsa dowels , could be possible to built the rear part with balsa squares instead?

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.


Thread: Kwik Fli 3 - 50th anniversary build
28/08/2018 20:53:29

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.


27/08/2018 21:37:58

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!
