Hey Guys,

I will probably be ordering a Brodak Super Clown Kit and was curious if anyone had any experience with this plane. How well does it survive a crash? How does it fly? Ideal power plants? I have looked around and it seems many people ditch the flaps. I will probably use them. Intended power will be either a Enya 35 or a Fox 35. Have not decided. It may be a week before I get the kit ordered.


Here is the kit

Rolla, just keep in mind that no framed up model is going to sustain crash damage well. The Super Clown is very similar to the Ringmaster almost identical aside from the flaps. The Ringmaster has about 30 more square inches of wing area. I have the Super Clown ARF. It flies quite well and I power it with a OS Max-s .30. A neat sport plane. One problem I encountered was the flaps wanted to vibrate immensely. I ended up removing them and replacing them with harder and heavier stock. The vibes would start when the plane really got going and would wind up in the wind. Once the vibrations started the plane would slow it's speed in half. I might have been able to tape the hinge line but I opted to replace. Your engine choices would work for this size plane. Even a modern .25 would fly this well. The Fox .35 is quite light compared to the Enya which may or may not be a consideration. Ken

Hey Mr. Coo,

The engine weight will most likely alter my decision depending on how it wants to balance. How far back to the doublers on the nose go? I know that breaks usually happen right where these end. As per what happened to Mr. Cribbs.

Edit: Found a good video of one flying.
