Big Plane Plan


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Does anyone know of a link where i could find a large trainer type plane to download? I'm looking for something like a Kadet Serior or the Tree Hopper plane.
I want it to be gasoline powered or at the least .60 size powered. I need it to be able to carry about 3 or 4 pounds of video equipment cargo. ie: camcorder etc.
Any recommendations out there?
Myles

For what it's worth, I have a set of plans for the Kadet Senior. they were given to me with the wreckage of a kit built Kadet Senior, and they have been "Used". (i.e. they are a bit rough, but that's what I am using to rebuild the wreckage.)

plane

What about an 8ft Beaver or a giant telemaster with an electric setup? (very few vibrations)

Hey Myles
I have a couple sets of plans for this type of plane and i'm sure Leon has a couple more. I was thinking of putting one together this winter for a candy drop plane. I,m sure i could frame up a second for you while i,m at it. Probaly have a weedy engine to power it also. I should have this stuff sorted out after the move this summer in the next couple weeks.

Big plane

Hey Brian, cool stuff!
i'll give you a shout over the next couple days. If the weather is good, will you be at the Picton airport Saturday or Sunday?

how about building a SPAD? check out the SPAD section and www.spadtothebone.com......or design one to suit your needs/size, and it is very cheap!

Myles,

I have a thread going on here under the giant scale forum. Its titled "giant scale trainer construction". Have a look at that. Ill admit, though, its not the easiest to build airplane. Its pretty complicated and has taken a lot of figuring out to build. Its still in the construction phases as I dont have much time these days between school and work to be able to build.

I have a buddy that has the .60 size telemaster. It is a fairly easy to build airplane and flies great too. I would not reccomend, however, using it for 3-4lbs of video gear. Its not going to take the weight very well. It will probably get off the ground, but you are going to have your hands full with the sticks. Most likely youll have to keep that throttle up around full all the time too, drop it down and youll stall.

Planes

I was looking at the box for T-Rex from Mosquitobite planes at Leading Edge hobbies the other day. Looks like a good candidate except that the fuse is fairly thin. Uses a .60 size glow I believe.
So far the Treehopper is looking to be the best candidate. If i could find a plan somewhere i might actually try scratch building one this winter as I'll have lot's of time to do so.
Would like floats for it too maybe.
Myles
