Just gone back over this thread started a couple of years ago.Still not built one and not impressed by the new version . Whatever happened to the Webra 40 with the Quiet tuned piped .I'd give anything to fly one again (like I said two years ago ).There might be a few models on sale soon in the classified columns ( Scarborough area) to finance getting back to what I used to really enjoy flying in the 70's

Know what you mean Myron, had a OS 40 FSR with an ED quiet pipe on mine...ahhhh, those were the days. Still have the plan, should loft up some built up wings eh?

It would have to be in the middle of the bucket though.

West engines are/were made by Webra and they are superb! A West 36 would be great in the Bullet.

There's an idea Brian!

I see Weston UK are still advertising Webras on their website

so perhaps Webra manufacture has re-started?

The Bullet was probably the first low winger I loved when I first started flying in the 70's. My instructor had one with that was finished in black and red Epoxycote paint with an HP40 and tuned pipe, with Skyleader Clubman Super gear. It looked great and flew pretty well.

Currently building an electric Crescent Bullet from the Cloud Models kit. My building skills are a bit rusty, so it's taking me a while, but I am really enjoying the build. I just made the carved balsa nose cone. and the fuselage is nearing completion.

Welcome to the forum Keith B. Lets see some photos of your progress with the Bullet.

This is a pretty old thread and many of the names who posted here have left the forum so won't be replying. But there may be other people with recent experience of an electric version of this classic.

Might as well add to it. I built a Crescent Bullet last year and flown it. Its the PB Models one. Give him a call and get one build. Fancy Paul's other retro models as well.

Hi Keith,
The bullet flies superbly on electric & is enjoyable to build. Just be aware that the
wing fixing bolt T-nut holes need moving back from the aileron torque rod position.
This issue may have been sorted by now but check first.
Also try & keep the tail light .

Nice job.
From your photo the wing bolt location still runs straight through the aileron torque rod position.
The manufacturer should have sorted that out by now.

Are those aileron servo boxes in the wing, if so the torque rod won’t be an issue?

Yes I ditched the torque rods and went flat wing servos.
