Yup, See "Relegated to the rafters."

I need a calm day, today is chilly and windy, some courage and at least 70 circular feet of clear land. Smile

Bob, I got home from work today and was greeted by a nice package from you on my doorstep! All-right... a Sterling Nieuport 28 stunt kit! You know... it has pretty nice wood inside the box, too! Sterling has a bad reputation for that but this one is pretty nice. I have an Enya 19V that should fly it okay... I'm not gonna do crazy stunting with it... I just like to fly 'round and 'round with some ups and downs! I can't wait to start it!!! bounce

Bob with the wing area you have I would think a larger prop will bee in for the duty say 6x4 pitch , want turn up thet fast but will produce more area thrust , if it were me that's were I would go the prop blast will be lager than the 4-5 " props . Just my thinking . Eric s wanting one now but I have too much others to do right now . Very Happy

I'm glad that it arrived ok.

I'm running series 21 McCoy .35's on both of mine.  They run well and start easy and fit nicely under the cowl.  I turned a soft pine 2X4 to fit inside the cowl then used a hole saw to cut the hole, worked well.  





I'm a big Enya fan however and may replace one of the McCoys with a .29 or .35 if I ever fly one again.  I botched the covering on the second N-28 and both will need to be recovered.  I used to do loops with my first N-28 but nothing else and was terrified while doing so.  Smile

Eric,  I guess I will just have to try several different props to find the right combo that will haul this heavy PT-17 around.
