Time is going fast and Iam looking forward to the summer evening to fly my RES-Eagle some more.

I will start here a thread about my new glider and will post all the pics I have.

Hope you like it and start your build to be ready for the summer.

Looking good but not sure if the Lipo will need to go that far forward.

Not sure if you know, the cg on the plan is the old position, its better to set the cg at 90mm.

Hi Jason,

All looking great and a very clean build my compliments.smiley

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your post and great that you selected the RedEagle for some relax flying.

The 10mm washout is for making the model turn better, but its not a big difference, because RedEagle's without the washout will also turn just fine. You don't have to build the washout in the wing you can also make the washout during the covering of the wing.

For clevises on the RedEagle or for models in general, check here **LINK** they all work just fine. For me I use a 90 degrees bend on one end and on the other end a metal clevis with a solder when the controls are neutral. After the maiden hold the rudder and elevator in the flight position, heath the clevis again to soften the solder and set the trim on the transmitter neutral. The model will be in trim for life.

Don't forget to post some pics of your build I can never get enough of build pics of the RedEagle.

And when you have questions just ask.

Hi Dave,

Iam using sheet hinges and its because, when you hit the ground with the rudder, it can move and won't break.

Its no problem gluing the rudder in place it will be okay in flight.

Dave, thanks for posting the pics the RedEagle looks great in the air.

yes Ton

The RedEagle is looking great and love the colours.

On the drawing the CG is 80mm but best location is 90mm from the leading edge.

Don't know if you have that already, but thought I should mentioned it to make sure you have the best CG setting.

Enjoy the maiden and stay away from thermals because your into some long flights.

Thread: Pics from your free RCME plan build
01/05/2017 21:13:15

Think we are still missing a lot of nice pics of models which are build from RCM&E free plans.

Why not post them here I would love to see as many as possible and its good for the motivation of the designers.

Check out this pic from Saturday at our club field and spot the RCM&E free plan models.

Hi Barry,

Good news that your almost ready to have a go with the Raider.

Yes it can be very handy to have as many spare as you can, I have a big bottle of glue and some foam to fill the holes where the foam has been taken out by a prop. You can never have enough foam or glue.

The Raider of your mate looks great has it been flown already, it looks to beautiful.

Had great fun today had lots of wind but was great fun doing vertical landings with the Raider.


17/03/2017 21:48:28

Yes that's what I do, when looking at the pics the plastic tube is set a little round, because of the tension on the wire.

Its not the best option but it work for me, but a spring would even be better.

But than again its only for cutting some Raiders its not for a production of a lot.

Cheers Ton

17/03/2017 21:21:50

baz, Looking good please keep in mind you need a tensioner, because when heating the wire it will expand a little and will lose its tension.

The wire Iam using is 0.5mm not that it is the best thickness, its because its the only wire I have so I use it and to good result.

I get my foam from house construction companies its used for isolation of houses.

Looking forward to more pics.

Yes I know and it is a great looking plane, but what I did refer to was "Zaunkonig was a model from Simprop"

Model Zaunkonig

and Iam sure the name for the model then was coming from the bird Zaunkonig

Bird Zaunkonig
