Good models for .09's

Post  VUgearhead on Wed Jan 11, 2017 2:04 pm

While I know you can probably slap any of the Cox .09's on just about any plane designed for an .049 and adjust for CG balance, I'm just wondering which planes you all out there have built an flown that were designed for .09's in mind (or 1.5cc for you metric persons).

I've got a growing collection of .09's, both TD's and medallions I'd like to get mounted.

TIA for your suggestions.

Well there has to be as least one "Stick" in every hangar I think. These are just great fun to fly. Smile

This design come from a fun-pylon racing class in the 80-ties (with max .10 engines);

PDQ Circus Prince for 0.099 power.

Post  706jim on Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:52 pm

Many years ago (1963) I built a PDQ Circus Prince that specified Class A engine power. I built mine and hung my Fox Rocket 0.099 on it for power. Didn't even have enough poop to fly with a hand launch. Upgrading the power to a Fox 15 made all the difference.
Whether a Cox 0.09 would have done better, I'll never know, but the Rocket 0.099 wasn't much of a powerhouse from what I remember.

Did it matter what type of plane? Radio control or control line?

The Cosmic Wind RC I built recently..see my avatar photo. Or the Toucan RC of Westwings that I fly with TD051 but an 09 would fly it even more happily.

I like your Cosmic wind Balogh, and your Avatar.

Anything that is marked .09-15 on the box will fly well with a Cox .09. For R/C I would steer towards Throttled medallions. Very smooth engines.

Good question. Seeing that you have a few .09 engines.. why not build at least one C/L model? I'd consider a Jr. Ringmaster, built as lightweight as possible. Not sure if a Medallion is powerful enough to "stunt" with, but they're less fussy when compared to a Tee Dee.. when it comes to running a hard-tank.

RC airplanes get expensive.. especially when you're considering building a few of them. I guess that depends on the materials that you have currently on hand to build a .09 size model.. as well as how much time you have available to build. If you have wood.. and like to build, you can save a lot of dough.. Doh! I'm sure that you know these things Dan.. I just mention them as food for thought. Smile

I like RC planes because they fly higher than 3 seconds from smacking into the ground RC Plane

09 Planes

Post  RK Flyer on Fri Jan 13, 2017 1:33 pm

The 09 engine is not as popular as it once was BUT its a favorite of mine. I would love to see the Hal de Bolt "All American" in a new kit form. Its a great control line flyer and will do all the stunts if you are a good pilot! In fact there are a lot of the old planes that could be brought back with the new Lazer & CNC type kits!

I would love to see this model scaled down to .09/.15 size and available as a fuelie design C/L  flyer.  Presently the pickings are rather slim for a smoothie like this.

Or SIG's "Shoestring". But yes RC or CL?

Selecthobbies.com sells a bunch of goodies that will go with 09 for CL and RC including Selextra 500 that I built and named Canary. You may find also my flight video on that here and on YouTube.

Had to go look. That Blue Angels "Wonder" made my day, but it's RC. Seems they undercut SIG's prices by pennies. Booked it.
