I really do love designing models but I am getting a little lazy in old age and it has to be soethingthat really excites me. If I can't imagine flying it in the early stages it must lack something.

On file with Kevin Crozier I have my STampe SR-7 which shouldplease a lot of people. Also my MAK15 MP which is an interesting model and which does fly well but is not too easy to build.

And MIss Sizzle will be ready to send in soon.

But I woke up this morning with an idea. Not sure yet if I will do it but it should please a lot of people. As soon as I am sure I will put it up here.

To give a hint to those who have been building and reading Radio Modeller long ago,it will be a version of one of my "Lesser Known Aircraft from Aeronuttical History"

I wonder how many of you remember any of those!!

that stampe looks brilliant pete!, but are all your models going to be electric only ? I would like to put a 4 stroke on that one.

How about a TUCANO? For glow and electric , 60inch wingspan?

i used my wing jig as i was sure how to takle the wing ribs resting on a piece of balsa at the back and since i have this useful tool, why not use it. I also add a piece of styro foam where the wing rubber bands will make pressure on.

if someone please can tell were exactly the centre of the engine mount according to the instructions it will be very helpfull, post photo’s if you can

Hi Robin

Great minds think alike they say😜. I was thinking to use an OS40fp or 35FP. I also have an irvine 36 or a supertigre 34. Put the Os feels lighter and they are more compact and also very reliable. I once used an OS40fp on my limbo dancer and it flew very well but never used funfly props. I’m hoping to make it below the 4lbs but wishfull thinking 😌.

servos i was planning to use the thrustworthy futaba S3003.

Thank you guys about your feedback

I totally agree with the extension of the fuselage doublers extending an inch or so aft from former 3, I’m planning to use 1/8th lightply. What I also would like to know about more is the wing dihedral brace, on my planes I beleive is listed as item number 13 but I don’t know how wide exactly is.

regarding servo positioning, i was thinking to put the rudder servo out and on top of the fuselage just aft of former 3 and use pushpull cables. The elevator inside and layed on its side and use a traditional pushrod, for the throttle i might use a mini servo.

If anyone of you can post photo’s please do

Hello to all

I started to build a funfly model called DARE-U, i beleive this model was once kitted by Ripmax but before it was a kit from a company named The Ultimate Model Corporation. The model is somewhat different from a traditional funfly machine like a limbo dancer were this is supposed to have the wing permanently attached to the fuselage. The centre section of the wing is supposed to be left open in order to have clearance for the servos inside the fuselage. the fuselage itself is narrow and there very little space inside.

I want to build mine wind a removeable wing using dowels and rubber bands to keep it simple, i know its possible because i remember one at the flying field long time ago.

the problem which i’m facing is that the plans that i have dont mentioned the balsa thickness of the wood and also the centre line of the engine bulkhead, if there’s anyone that have a similar model or the instructions to build this model, please can you post them here? It will be of valuebale information and much appreciated.

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?



23/07/2019 22:08:38

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

Posted by Percy Verance on 02/03/2019 16:46:27:

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.



02/03/2019 13:59:18

Hello to all

first I apologize as i dont want to hack the thread with my question.

but to all the super 60 lovers, which one flies the best the 3 or 4 ch version?

i stubold in this video on youtube and i’m amazed of how well the model flies, but is it the 3 or 4 ch?

kind regards

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


23/02/2019 11:53:20

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.
