This is my Renegade bipe plan No 1512 from RCME should be available from Sarik. However I recommend instead the Acrobits No159. Reason is I flew my Renegade and on the same day a friend let me have a go with his Acrobits - I felt Acrobits was just that little bit better. But the Renegade was a trusty plane for many years. When brand new I exhibited it at Alexandra Palace Model Engineer Show ( the proper RCME / Nexus show ) didnt win any medals of course but it was nice to see see the crowds looking at my model.

Both the Renegade and the Acrobits I flew went well on an ordinary 40 two stroke,  mine had an Enya 40SS plain bearing.

image.jpgI know I have shown it before, but the Pat French Team Special is still mine. At the time the DB Bi-Stormer was very popular, a great model, but I felt that this flew better.team special 79 in 1982 (2).jpg

Percy, I think my DB Gypsy (Cirrus) Moth is at least sport scale so not really eligible as non-scale bipe.

It does fly really well though as I think we'll agree. yes

My favourite is The AEROMASTER, Originally a kit by AAMCO in the '60s. I have built five or six of them, have one at the moment plus a Great Planes "Super Aeromaster" - kit just in case.

I also have a Giant Aeromaster which I bought second hand and have yet to fly. I need to find a suitable 40 - 50cc engine first.

Martin you are correct it's RC1510. Just this one more photo which is the one on the Sarik website. The advantage of this biplane is that it uses wood for the cabane struts rather than wire - nicer if you are a woodworker.

Wots Wot is hard to beat, but I'll throw another couple in, Flair Puppeteer (never owned one but have flown others) and a bit left field the Towrag, not too many V tailed biplane towplanes (and it flies really well too)

I'd go with Flair legionnaire or Precedent Bi Fly, would rather have a Pitts though.
