Hi,

I bought one of these models at Wings & Wheels last weekend. An impulse purchase! No engine and no plans.

I would really appreciate information on C of G position and suggested control throws from anyone who has built and/or flies one of these Harvards.

This thread shows wonderful build photos way above my standard. I hope the one I have bought was as carefully built!

Regards Mike

Denis,

Will search other photos on thread showing any of the plan for any control throw info.

I do fly a smaller Flair Harvard so can probably estimate reasonable throws from that model.

Thanks for info, Geoff.

Sorting out the servos and engine fitting now, but great to have the information I will need a bit later.

Great photos again. She looks far too good to risk flying her!

Regards Mike

Rotary?!! In a Harvard! Maybe a radial.

Phil.
