1/2a rc planes

Post  Cox 049. on Thu May 17, 2012 5:19 pm

Hey all, I've been wanting to build or get a 1/2a rc plane for a while. I have been looking at the Black Hawk models pippin, the sig rascal and the norvel tutor, which one of these is the easiest to build? do you guys know of any other good ones? I'm looking for one that is easy to build and relatively cheap. Thanks.

Okay, does it come precovered? i have seen reviews where it does and then other places where it isn't, what website can I get the pre covered one off of? it says the ideal power is the norvel .060 can i use my .049 too? Thanks.

Are you looking for a kit or an ARF and is this your first R/C plane? Do you already fly R/C?

Knowing the answers will help the folks on the forum better answer your questions and provide suggestions for models.

That is a very nice model, do you have to cut the wood yourself? if so how do you do that?

Yes, you have to cut! but, it´s very easy, just glue the plans tempates to the wood, with stick glue, (just a litle), and cut with a X-acto, you can cut all the material in 1 hr.

Let us know where you are big guy?
Over here we've got cracking kits that click together like jigsaws with a bit of cyano

I'm not very good with wood at all but managed to put together this baby's little bro in 2 evenings.
Another plus is it bounces really well too.
Very Happy

I live in Alberta, I would get a kit but I don't think I would do a good covering job. I really like the one colibriguitars made.

Colibriguitars, could you show me some more pics of your plane? maybe one or two of the plans also please so I can get a general idea of the building process. Thanks.

Covering with Ultracote or Monokote is easier than it looks. I did it the first time without practice on my Li'l Jumpin Bean and it came out almost perfect. And I'm a fair klutz. Watch a couple of Youtube tutorials.

If you paint it instead of coveing it you will add alot of unneeded weight to the airplane.

Okay, my final decision is between colibriguitars plane and the sig rascal. Colibri's plane looks easier to build and I already have an engine for it, but the rascal is very nice also, where could I buy a norvel .060 for that?

Yes and I doubt this plane will weigh much more then 10-13oz RTF and with a norvel 061 that will pretty much 3D!
