Is there anyone out there with,,,,

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
As mentioned in another post, I am the lucky individual who purchased that lovely L-19 Birddog at the London Swap Meet. I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has the same plane. It's a 1/4 scale. Apparently through one of my club members, there is one in Wellland. I need to know what servos you are running in this beast of a plane. All the servos in my plane are either not made anymore or I just don't trust them. I have convinced the wife to let me buy all new servos ( she thinks the plane is pretty) for this monstrosity. Any input on the torque you would use would be greatly appreciated. I have decided to use Hitec servos. Thanx in advance

Welland club

The Welland club is known as the Rose City Model Flyers. Look them up on the MAAC web site. Then get in touch with the contact person to see who has an L 19.

Since you don't need real high precision and perfect centering try the 945 super torques, the arte real powerful and reasonably priced.
There is no such thing as too low

A 1/4 scale bird dog cant be that large a model as giants go.........whats the wing span?
I dont think you need anything as exotic as a Hitec 945 for a model like this ,and a 645 or 605 if you can get them will do fine.Following is a comparison.

945 coreless dual BB 122 torque @ 4.8V $74US

645 standard dual Bb 107 torque @ 4.8V $40 US

605 standard dual BB 76 torque @ 4.8V $30US

As examples Im currently flying a 30# 88" Bipe,and a 25# 1/3 Sig Spacewalker with a span of 103" on nothing larger than Hitec 605s

These are current prices at for comparison and would be higher in Canada but the comparison should be valid.
All above IMO.......

I had James' plane in my shop for a while. It is not a giant as giants go but is still a fair size. WS is 108", length about 73", WA about 1600 SQ". We estimated the all up weight will be about 22lbs. (weight without motor, rec, pack was about 16 lbs). Thanks guys for the advice. I'm guessing that the Spacewalker is a good comparison in terms of size and weight. A larger Cub or something would be comparable as well in both size and performance. What else are you guys using in your big Cubs etc.?

If you don't have time to do it right this time, how are you going to have time to do it again?

A bird dog is just a cub in different clothes. 605's all around would be fine.
Use a 6V battery pack.
