I just received a new kit from County Line Hobbies the 1/2A Pinto. Its a full on stunt plane with a 34" wing span full flaps & built up fuselage. The kit is very nice and is very complete. I'll use a 049 Tee Dee or maybe something new?? for power. The best part is it is on sale for $20.00 off, so if you are looking for any type Control Line, RC, Free Flight kit be sure to check them out while the sale is on !

Has anyone here built & flown this kit?

I worry when I see a sale like that with massive discounts. Often means the company is going out of business.

The 1/2A pinto is a control line plane kitted by RSM Distribution. Eric Rule is the owner.  The 1/2A Pinto is a bit complex as it's a full bodied stunter designed for a TD .049. It has a constant chord wing with flaps.  Dee Rice designed the Oriental which is monumental in control line in  a .35 size plane. The Pinto is essentially the same plane in 1/2A. https://www.rsmdistribution.com/kit-detail.php?pn=pint&src=kits-half-a.php

Just do a search for County Line Hobbies.

Thanks Ken for a better description of the plane, it's a design by Dee Rice and its also at RSM but not on sale.

Nope. I've had the plans for many years, but still have not gotten around to it. But, I have the tail surfaces cut out, and the ribs as well. Only waiting to find the time. Every time I think about it and pull it out, I get distracted by something else, mainly another build. I will finish it one day!

At 34" span I would have thought that a plane like this would have used an .09-.15 size engine. Something like a Tee Dee .049 would have to work pretty hard to pull off the stunt pattern. It would need to be run in the upper end of its rpm range to have the power, which may make it lean out too much in loops etc.
Maybe not, but 34" seems pretty big in my experience, which is limited.

Dick Mathis aka Fast Richard published a book in the early seventies "How To Fly U- Control" ....i must of read it 100 times!

Use a strong Tee Dee and build it light, an .09 would be pretty heavy.
