Legacy Aviation Muscle Bipe

The Legacy Aviation Muscle Bipe (MB) is arriving and now is the time to start a full thread and go over the assembly and flying of the MB. The plane was announced at the Toledo 2019 show, was first flown at Joe Nall 2019 and since has had little coverage till now. I was the lucky guy to have the only flying version for many months, write the assembly manual and play with it for months till now. So now is your time to get one and enjoy a biplane with aerobatic capabilities, smooth slow flight and no bad habits. The plane is constructed of ply, balsa, carbon and covered with oracover has fiberglass cowling and wheel pants that are painted, the hardware is included. You will need some things and I will have that list in a subsequent post, mine has standard equipment that is available to any of you.

  • Motor - Torque 4016-500 MKII
  • ESC - Castle Creations Talon 90
  • Servos - wing MKS HV69, rudder/elev Hitec 7245MG
  • Prop - Xoar 16X7
  • Aura 8 AFCS
  • (4) 6" Extreme Flight 28AWG servo extensions
  • (4) 18" Extreme Flight 28AWG servo extensions

Flying the MB I use a 6S 3300-4000mah lipo. Generally, I get about 6-7 minutes with a 3700mah lipo. Using the Talon 90 you will not need a separate battery to power your receiver. I used an 8CH receiver, but a 7CH would work. OK let's begin the assembly.

Initial flight Joe Nall 2019 (5 min 3 sec)

Muscle Bipe Cowling insert (8 min 35 sec)

Muscle Bipe, tail assembly (10 min 16 sec)

Tailwheel assembly, Muscle Bipe (5 min 57 sec)
