Pinto

Post  RK Flyer on Sat Jan 27, 2018 4:02 pm

My Pinto is still in the box on the shelf! I looked over the kit but .......

Do you have any Tips? I always have trouble with the wing's. I thought about buying a jig but they are a few $$$. At my old age I don't know if I really need one lol!

Sorry, I can’t impart any tips as I have never built one. What specifically are you having trouble with?

If it’s just keeping the wing straight, go buy an arrow shaft or pick up a piece of carbon fiber. Drill a couple holes in the ribs or if they are already drilled just ise the existing holes. Cheap and easy!

I’m not sure if you know this, but there is a fuel tank specifically made for the Pinto. I picked one up today at a swap meet. $5plus actual ship and it’s yours. They are not too common so I thought I would ask to see if you needed it.

Ok Ron, thats awesome. I have most of my 'kit' cut out and has been for a while. But, seeing as you found teh specific fuel tank, would it be possible to take a couple of pictures for me to see how it looks? I attempted to build one but I had an inability to follow teh plans/blueprints listed on the plans. So if that is possible, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Smith tanks are good tanks. I believe Steve Smith was making those tanks. Steve is a competitor in F2C team racing. Certainly a good find. If no one takes that offer Ron, I would hold onto that tank as it may be very beneficial as it's well built and the plumbing is done correctly. I have some 1/2A racer kits offered by him which are very nicely done.

My flying buddy Philly Skip built a Pinto for our annual 1/2A day. Skip used a Foremost mount and redesigned the front end to accommodate the mount. He now currently has a TD on it and it really flies well. I'm a huge fan of the Oriental and this small version is a real beauty.

I’ve yet to see one fly, currently I have no desire to build one. If it does fly well I could be easily swayed.

Ron

Looks like it has potential

Great, thank you. So, it does appear that the tank you have is different than the one shown on the plans. But at least this helps immensly now that I have seen one, I think I can now fabricate what I need.

I have a copy of the Pinto by Dick Mathis. It is the original plan set I believe. It is a copy from Flying Models Magazine December 1972 (stamp of FMM and signed Dec 1972).

Thank you. I have a good set of the plans pictured. The picture is just something I grabbed online from somewhere and just used it to show the set of plans I do have. I actually have teh good set of plans and a copy of teh original article too somewhere. Again, thanks for your time and help. I just have to get the hobby room cleaned up and find my parts that are ready (ribs, tips, tail, formers) Just got back into playing with guns lately so most of the RC stuff has been on hold.
