MY first post: .010 or .020

Post  BWH on Fri Nov 18, 2016 5:07 pm

I just ordered a Micro Stick from Radical RC and am trying to decide on breaking out a NIB Tee Dee .010, a one run in the box .020 Tee Dee or a well used Pee Wee .020? I know the .010 is worth a lot as is.  I have always loved the 1/2a engines and just completed a .061 AP airplane that does great, now I want smaller.

You are probably going to get a lot of varied opinions here. There are a lot of TD .010's out there so it's not rare, especially a later version like you have. That engine would sell for around $100-150.

How much is your fun worth to you? Ever blown $150 at a restaurant?

It's really up to you the .010 is not rare and the late model one you have is not as pricey as lets say a pristine red tank TD .010 in the jewel case which can bring over 200 dollars. If you want to run a NIB 010 the black tank version i would say is better value wise. The TD .020 will pull that stick pretty quick but don't let the .010 size fool ya lol it cranks out good power for it's size and brings a crowd too since it sounds like a swarm of altra angery gnats hopped up on too many red bulls lol. Again it's all up too you, have fun!! (Bandit)

Update on Micro Stick

Post  BWH on Thu Nov 24, 2016 9:03 pm


Build is coming along.  Right now I am planning on using the .010 Tee Dee.
I am not doing a rudder, just bank and yank.

Question

Post  BWH on Thu Nov 24, 2016 10:24 pm

Is there a way to use the stock tank on the .010 and be able to fly inverted? If not will the engine allow me to do rolls as is?

Here is a similar size square wing plane set the same as a high wing using a TD .010.
Setup with a stock black prop to give you an idea of whats possible using a 14cc tank,
note the duration and acro with the engine running steady. You can look it up on the
net info on it has flown with a TD .020 and TD .049 as well.

The plane looks awesome. I am a big fan of the transparent covering on others planes because my craftsmanship still needs some work. lol.

BHW-Your Micro Stick looks great! I built one back in May with a Cox .010 and flew it at SMALL in June. It flew well on the .010. Here's a few photos:





Have fun,

Built its brother, the Ace R/C Littlest Stick, Pee Wee powered rudder only.



These small field planes make neat little fliers, a blast to fly.
