In ENGLISH...anybody got one, that I could either buy or borrow??????

Working on a kit I've had shelved for years, and assy is pretty straight forward....but I got a feeling...from an old MHT article by Steve Cambel, that the manual will be most helpful in radio set-up.

Hey Steve...did you ever fix that OS and fly the Schweizer again?

heli13,

I did eventually repair that engine (it is in my grandson's Concept 30 now), but I never put it back in that model. I bought a Leo 37 to try, on the assumption it had more power, and it overheated as well; despite the added cooling shroud and baffle I put in there. I don't see those engines offered any more, for what that is worth.

I believe I said in the article (not sure, and I don't feel like looking it up right now... that this machine was a bit on the heavy side for a 30-class engine. If I recall correctly, it weighed at or over seven pounds. That's really pushing things, especially in the heat and humidity here. It might do okay in a cooler climate.

But I'll reiterate the ease of the machine's CCPM system. It was a true no-brainer, and the manual did indeed do an excellent job of guiding one through the set-up.

It was a fun model to fly. I eventually got rid of it because I had trouble seeing the thing. That dark red canopy turned black in all but brilliant sunlight, and even then when you got it some distance away; at least, it did to my aging eyes. That is why I didn't try a .46 engine, which was Plan C.

You will need some larger-than-normal servo horns; 20mm or better, if I recall correctly.

Good luck.

Thanks Steve, just finished the air baffle and shroud extension last night. Gonna try a TT39H in this one, if it doesn't work correctly, I still got a nearly new OS 46....

Thanks for the tip on 20mm servo arms too.
