    RE: New airplane

    That would make a great combo, as my Big Stik 60 rocks with a G20 up front.

    Yeah, I'm with everyone else - y'gotta have a Stick. They're ugly, they're legendary, they're GREAT fliers.

    My fave gab'n'go plane in my fleet is the Funstar 40. It flies in calm and it flies well in lots of wind too. OS 52 four stroker up front is a great match. Also a glow fuel miser!

    RE: New airplane

    Eray, I have to agree with the others, it's hard to beat a Big Stick. They are awesome fun flyers. My take to the field everytime is my 4*40 similar to the Escapade. Mine has clipped wings and 46ax. Sig has some new 4 Star arfs coming back might be worth looking at. Hard to beat a 4 Star too.

    Peace,
    J

    RE: New airplane

    It's not only pretty easy to learn to fly as a second plane, but you can start out with tricycle landing gear, and then easily mod it to make a taildragger for learning tkeoffs and landings, which the majority of planes you'll probably fly in the future use.

    A very good plan, which so happens to be what I did with mine

    RE: New airplane

    A Sig 4*60 with your .75 2 stroke would be my choice. I have a 4*60 ARF (older 71" wingspan model) with a OS .60 FP as my "go to" low wing plane and I love it. The new ARFs with the clipped wing and your .75 would be even better.

    Hey Eray. A while back, I also asked about a Stick, and everyone commented that everyone should own a Stick.. Went and bought the new Hanger 9 Ultra. Haven't finished it yet, but it can be built as a Trike, or Taildragger. Also with or without flaps. Only 40 size, but for me, that's OK. Nice looking plane though. There wasn't a wrinkle in the Ultra, right from the factory. One other nice thing is the plastic clevises, have a steel pin in them. I always change the plastic for metal, but didn't on this one. Mine is getting a Saito FA82.

    Hi Kevin
    Unless you already have your FA 82 you might want to consider an OS FS 81 .. I have both motors and I much prefer the OS . It has a system that recycles its exhaust oil so that it dosen't blow as much goo all over the place .. Your plane stays way cleaner.. It is a really nice running easy to tune powerfull motor .. I really like it .. I like it so much that I bought two of them..I have one on a 1/5 scale cub on floats . It has lots of power for that .

    It may seem a little odd but my current grab-and-go in fueled models is a Maxford Mentor-G gasoline with a Zenoah G-26M engine. Two wing bolts, fuel her up with the chainsaw mix and off I go. Can hand-prop if I don't feel like bringing the Dynatron. It's a big, easy flying model and a lot of fun. I have added smoke - mechanical with a Mikuni diaphragm pump - and a set of floats for off-water operations. She'll have skis by winter. Big, dopey and a blast to fly. With an 18 x 6 prop she has torque to do any maneuver a sport plane is expected to do. No torque rolls, but any Aresti maneuver.
