Hi Roger, That would be great looking forward to the photos.

Hi Roger, That's great news never expected to hear that a Corby is close to ready to its maiden.

Would love to see some pics of the Corby I sure its a lovely model to see in its 74% scale.

For the control movements not sure what to say because most of the time I use to much control movement on my models, that's what other pilots say when they fly my models.

I think that for elevator and aileron it will be just fine with 10mm max both ways and for rudder is could be a little bit more.

Hope this help you a little.

Oooo no sorry to see the damage, looks like the grain is not running as it should be.

Always very difficult to see that the balsa is of poor quality.

But than again that's what makes you a great craftsman , fix it and go on with the job yes

The servo location and hatch looks great.

Keep up the good work the Corby is worth the effort.


Thread: E-Glider new design called RedEagle
05/09/2016 19:39:45

Makes me happy to see that the RedEagle's are still flying.

My prototype model is also still flying, don't know how many hours it has flown but it still is going strong.

I still take is with me to the field nearly every weekend, or for flying in the evening on Teusday and Thursday.

But there is a new Eagle that is called the Res-Eagle, is go's up with a bungee or with a tow by a RedEagle.

So for me its double funsmiley

Hi Peter,

How is it going with the Starlet, are there any more pics, its looking great.

Looks to me your talking about the size and wingspan of the model.

and that the Corby is to small with a wingspan of 1325mm.

It would not be difficult to enlarge the model to 70 inch which would be about 1750mm.

Think the biggest problem will be the canopy.

Thanks for starting the build looking forward to many pics.

Good to see the build has started and its looking great.

And great to know you like the balsa stuff.

Looking forward to more pics.

Here is the pic of the batt , but Iam not sure if it will stay in, because I want to make a towrelease system in the nose.

For that I need to switch to a flat batt.



10/07/2016 02:10:54

Iam using an nicad reciever battery when Iam correct a 700ma, I can take a pic if you like.

5mm will make the tail section more heavy, so the model will need more lead in the nose to set the CG right.

Thread: Bristol M1 conversion to leccy?
04/07/2016 21:33:27


Its my homemade spinner made from fiberglass over a balsa and foam mold.

No the nose is not shorten, for better scale it should be much shorter but then you will need a big motor to have the CG in the right place..

Hi Bob,

Great model the Busa Bristol M1C, iam flying it for many years already.

First with Nicad and a brushed motor and now with a geared brushless motor, batt is a Lipo 4S 4000ma and its just a great model to fly.

Not 100% sure but I think the prop is a 16x8 with more than enough power to do WW1 aerobatics.

Did a lot of modification to the model to get the weight down and made the wing in two panels.

Here are some pics the rest is in my album **LINK**

Hi Jordan,

Sorry don't know whats in the shortkit, but it should be all the cnc cut parts.

Best is to send rbckits an email and keep in mind that they will be open comming week and after that close for a holiday.

Here is a pic from a German forum the pic shows the complete kit, hope this helps you to have an idea of whats in the shortkit

Here is the link to the German forum
