Hey stumpy have you started making any plans on your next model? I know I had my first low wing before I could even fly my trainer.
Tell us all a little more about the one you have in the picture. Radio, engine etc. What Tx are you using? Where do you fly? Keep the thread going bro.

Hi Guy's

Flyjunkie just sent me a message to say that I should drop in to this post and introduce myself.

I also am from the UK and pleased to meet you. I spend most of my time on the CAD/CNC section. If you wish you can view three of my current model designs by using these links:

Stumpy423 am I write in thinking that's a Yamamoto? If it is, it's the plane I learned to fly 30 years ago. I too converted mine to ailerons and reduced the dihedral to 5 degrees. I didn't know any were still flying.

Re: from across the pond: brits

Stumpy 423,

They are actually quite nice to fly with no nasty habits and a very good beginners plane, providing they have an experienced pilot standing by.

Mine was fitted with an OS 40MAX which was a little outgunned by it's contemporary HP40 but still a good solid engine. I never crashed it and used to keep it in reserve just in case. It was still a good plane when I sold it on three years later.

At that time I was operating a Futaba 6M 27MHz and if memory serves the control surfaces and throttle were operated by plastic snakes and the ailerons via a single servo in a balsa lined tub cut from the underside centre of the wing and pushing torque rods.

I note that you have a .46 in yours which will be just fine - not ballistic but good enough. Mine would do several vertical rolls before dropping. I am slightly in awe that you managed to get hold of one and you must think yourself very lucky to have a piece of modelling history on your hands. Whatever you do hang on to the plan.

Good luck with it.

Dave

hi mate... thanks for the reasureance... my freind that has been flying for 18 years is going to teach me to fly... the servo in my wing is mounted in the same way as yours ... the only reason that im fitting carbon rods is because when i put the plastic sleaves in for the metal push rods i acserdently put a slight bend in the sleave causing the push rod to be stiff therefore by going to carbon it means that i can go from a 3mm rod to a 2.5 mm rod this prevents the rod from sticking. and that stops the problem i shall keep hold of it for as lond as posibel



im looking for my first low winged plane ... what do we think kit or arf?
