Is it asking a bit much for a dc dart to pull a sharkface about?

It would pull it around but I don't think it would be much fun.

I'll try again with this post. A Cox .049 or even Testors/McCoy .049 for even better control a PAW .55 BR R/.c as seen on this list http://www.eifflaender.com/price.htm#SBB Uncle Google will give loads more. I had loads of fun with these bot F/F and R/c You do the same but I hope you are an experienced flyer.

That posting went O.K. Wonder why the others didn't?

Agreed! And you would need to keep it very light! A Cox .049 is perfect for a Sharkie.

A PAW 80 (now 049, I believe) and with the RC gear that we have now, you can even have a throttle.

I know of a couple like this, and the owners are very pleased.

Originally I dud have a 09 medallion in it. full bore two channel. But that was when I was flying pattern ships in the 80's and it was almost more than I could handle then so definately not now after a twenty year rest. I have got a 049 somewhere, I will have to dig it out, thought the Dart wouldnt be uo to it but thought I would ask. Thanks

Are you going to add an elevator and/or alter the engine downthrust Eddy?

Have just found in my drawer an almost new 09 tee dee I think. Black and gold. Havnt figured out how to post photos yet? And also a 049. So I think 049 first to see how it goes. Elevator and rudder only. I dudnt alter downthrust with the medalion.

It would be a *very* brave man who put a TeeDee09 on a Sharkie! I've still got my TeeDee09 from my control-line days, and even with a muffler on, its an animal of an engine!

Admittedly all mine flew on rubber drive escapements, but I found a standard "Babe Bee"quite "adequate", thank you! disgust

Eddy: If you want something for the TeeDee 09, have a look at the Bazz Bomb - similar in concept the the Sharkie, but bigger!

After 16 weeks of more or less solid work, I took out my Sharkface fitted with cox 049 for its first flight in twenty five years, on a very Gusty Dartmoor. First flight was fairly nerve wrecking and a bit of a brute of a landing, cartwheeled but no damage. Second fkight had my reflexes sorted a bit more and old Sharky didnt let me down. More fun than anything else I have in the loft. Fantastic glide and handling when engine cut, landed twenty feet away. Well chuffed. Now where is that teedee 09?

Peter Christy.
The Bazz Bomb has always interested me and as soon as my new container workshop is completed, I will get one on the go.
