Cool Need help....

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I need help to choose my next plane, there's my experience, about five seasons of flight, I had already flight an Aerostar 40 for my training, a Tiger II 40, a FourStar 60, a T34 Mentor with rough experience, I finally sold it, an a Pulse Xetra 40, Finally I build a Big Piper Arrow, but it's too much advance for my skill, so, I sell it last weekend.

Now I'm looking for something with I can have fun without stress, what do you think about a super decathlon with a 26 gas engine or a Supersportser 120 with a 26 gas engine.

I like more kit before an ARF.

So I'll wait for your suggest!

Re: Need help....

Go for the Decathelon on Gas babby.

Get out of those expensive to operate slimers and go gass. Only $4.00 a gallon and lst 4 times longer then glo.

I think thee was a Dynaflite Decthelon for sale here on RCC, check the For Sale threads.

Hey, hey, there Babby, I've got one of those Dynaflite Super Decathlons and wouldn't sell it to an enemy. Seriously, it was not a great kit - poor parts fit, missing pieces, heavy wood, low grade ABS parts with lousy fit, questionable design - just a whole bunch of things about it that are making it take me so long to get it done - over 5 years now.

But go for gas for sure and don't look back.

I'd suggest that if he gets his thoughts sorted out in some orderly fashion, he'll find lots of choices that fit.

For instance, what's the budget, will it be gas () or glow (), how big will it be and what are the flying characteristics supposed to be? There could easily be more criteria. Float plane? Land plane? Scale?

Then it might be an idea to break it down between ARF and kit planes. Tons of possibilities.

Until a few things get prioritized, you're just running off in all directions at once. And once you decide, concentrate on that. Otherwise, if you catch "the disease", you'll be off all over again, wind up with scads of partially built planes and get very little done in achieving your goal.
