Hi Giuseppe,

That's looking terrific . love the charge panel, where did you get it ?

I've got the same engine in a 1/3 scale Turbulent which I'm very happy with. Worth checking one thing though. I had a very small leak where the carb sits in the crankcase so had to seal it.

Hi John nice to here from you again thanks for the tip on the engine I will keep a eye on the carb, if you using yours on a 1/3 scale turbulent then on mine with a anticipated weight of 5kg should fly on half throttle!

The switch is AGM Heavy duty dual switch from eBay there are many type of it including one with a filler cap all anodised aluminium and very good quality in my opinion specially for £15 posted

All the best Giuseppe

The Zlin aviation as added another bobber to there collection of aircraft and is called the Savage Agilis and in my view is just beautiful and wrapping you legs around a 100bhp rotax engine is just awesome to me it resembles the Air Bike a ultralight aircraft from America with a savage bobber look it should be straight forward to build and is going to be my next project using the same wings and tails and engine of my savage trainer

"Hitec hs 75bb speed 4.8/6v 0.45/0.34sec @180 degree"

HS75 cannot be used for anything but retracts (unless you enjoy a two position elevator!) as it goes from end to end with no in between stops.

The 77 is a more normal sort of servo.

Have drawn an A0 plan for a 1/4 scale Bobber using power point if anyone wants it. Cant guarantee its accuracy though as nothing really to reference it against other than the pictures on the Zlin site.

Metal construction underway using 7mm stainless steel .

As beautiful as this bird is, why on God's green earth is it so difficult to find one!? Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would love plans or links. Thank you in advance.

I had to draw my own by tracing over suitable pictures. Purchased a lot of tube at a significant cost and made a start on cutting to form one side of the fuselage, but in my normal way, then lost interest in the build!
