Isnt that about a 15lb plane? a 30 would be OK but a DLE50 would be much better. I have a 30 on my 12lb it flies great but 15lb thats a lot.

There's a guy down here with the DP 330 with a dle30 on it. I thought the same thing when I first saw it. The 30 pulls it just fine and still punches out of a hover nicely.

I have a DLE 30 on a 9lbs Sig 1/4 scale Cap231ex ARF and it is almost to much power for the plane. It balances great and flies fine as long as you don't give it the wood, and the plane hovers at about 3/8 throttle and punches out like a rocket.

I know it will fly well and probably balance better than a 55. I bet the 55 will need some tail weight.

The DLE-30 actually outperforms a no name 40CC I had on my 12.5lb plane.

But the difference in price is only $50 why not stiffen up the firewall with some bracing and make it ballistic.

(I pin my firewall with steel pins)

A 30 on a 9lb cap now that I bet is a monster!!!!!!!!

Haven't really gotten into the aerobatic planks yet, but have flown other planks for over 20 years. Have a 1/3 scale Piper Cub I am working on this winter. Also have a giant scale Stik to finish. Finishing up a smaller Piper on floats for the lake this next summer. I sure enjoy the planks yet. I love those rotor machines but I also keep the dust off the planks.

My son and I are still having loads of fun with the Trojan T-28 and the Parkzone Champ. My son is loving the Champ and prefers it to my Trojan. However his landings are still a bit hard at times and occasionaly unintended. Like the time he landed in the open trunk of my car.

The Champ has held up very well, until today. My son pulls into a very tight loop about 15 feet up and the wings snap off. The whole plane tumbling to the ground in pieces.

The good thing is the parts are cheap and readily available. The glue is setting now and we should be ready for more tomorrow.

That was a nice lesson learned very very inexpensively. It would be interesting to see how much of the experience stick with him.

Eventually a micro plane has more glue than plane.

That's what I was thinking. He is a "thinker" and we have had a few good conversations about airframe fatigue and wing loading.

Some indoor hover testing of Techone mini Yak54.

It is just too heavy for slow flying at 2.2oz

`Looking for foam wing site

I deleted a site I had for foam wing cutting by mistake. On this site you could pick the type of airfoil you wanted. It told you all you wanted to know about each one. Has anyone been on this site? It had great infomation on airfoils and I want to build a new sloper this winter. I am pi##ed at myself for cleaning my favorites. Don't even know when I did it. Been awhile. Hope Its OK to ask this type of question.

Wow, it's been so long I forgot how to post. this didn't go where I wanted it to. I need help. I'm looking at a birthday next month and It aint going to be pretty. Sh#ts already in the wind. Somebody through me a lifeline.

I,m having a bad day. I can't delete this reply. I'm going to bed.

Here is my old KMP Cessna 337(336) with two twin cylinder Saito 100Ts.
I think this video is 7-8 years old.

okay - i see how it is in your house...the plane sleeps on the bed and the helis sleep on the floor.

let us know your thoughts on the sbach...looks like it could be a lot of fun. i'm nervous about wingspans less than 55" as a lot of them fall out the sky when you slow them down.

It will fall out of the sky for sure. But, not the way you think.

If it goes well, video will be up.

let us know what you're slapping in the S-Bach for power.
Curious to see how well it flies. Love that ship.
