Default Simprop Piaggio Avanti Canard

Found her last week at a R/C flea market. A very hard plane to find as they stoped making them years ago and were a good chunk of cash if you wanted one. Made in Germany and flys as good as she looks.

Keep em flying

My newest is a Park Zone BNF Mosquito. Haven't had a chance to fly it yet. I've flown my P-51 and my Sukhoi in winds over 12, but I learned very early not to do that when these little guys are new out of the box. They each have their own personality, and each handles wind differently. They're a bit tricky to fly backwards at full throttle.

I've got a number in works that I'd like to be able to say are my newest, but since retiring, I just haven't seemed to have the time for building any more.

That is an awesome looking plane! Servos for both the canards and the elevators or just one of them? Also is it hand launched?

Would love to see a video of this flying if you can make one.

Thanks, One servo for canards. Yes, We hand launch it but I am putting landing gears on it so I don't need anybody to toss it for me. It is a good size plane with a 55 inch wing span. I had a buddy filming the maiden flight but the battery on the camera went dead. So we will do another video soon.

Keep em flying

Question What is she?

My wife's boss had this bird setting in a shed for years. Its an old control line model, I have no clue what it is (Cessna?), it was gas powered and I'm thinking about reconditioning her and convert her to e-power.
Anyone have any Ideas what she is?

With a white fuse, rounded tips, #40 on the side, flat top behind the wing? Definitely Mr. Mulligan.

After noticing the CL bellcrank, Wedge fuel tank, I went to the Vintage Sterling web site, and judging by the the construction, and the spun cowl, what you might have there is a real classic, a Sterling kit C-3 Mr. Mulligan, which was kitted by Sterling from 1949 to 1975. They probably recommended a .19 to .35 for power. Usually they flew better with .29 to .35.

Sterling CL kits were often noted for very heavy balsa, high wing loadings, and very steep glide ratios. Their Ringmaster series is a CL classic. I also believe they were the developer, or one of the earlier users of die cut balsa, although later their kit parts became referred to as Die Crushed parts, as they seemed to go a long time between sharpenings or blade replacements.

You might post those pictures on the Brotherhood of the Ring website, and get some more information. They're mostly about the various ringmasters, but they might also go a bit nuts to see that one

Thumbs up Mister Millagan

How cool is that a Mister Mulligan, Wow! I believe she is worth rework/e conversion effort, your thoughts?

This might help in fixing the Mr. Mulligan up.
Construction might be different, but you can use the templates for correct sizes.

Hey all, I was in my local hobby shop yesterday getting a battery an spotted an old box way on the top shelf and jotted the name down... it's called the "Furion 3D"... (Bipe)

After getting home and researching it on the web... I want one!!! so I’m going back today to pick it up. I spent all night looking at so many different setups for this plane that I’m left really confused. So my question is this...

Anyone HERE have this plane or flown it before and if so, what exact setup did you use (motor, esc, prop & batt)???

Please keep in mind that i know squat about motors and still having a hard time learning it... so if ya tell me something like "get a 100watt motor", i'm just gonna be more confused... so please link it if possible.

P.S. Hopefully any recommendations stay under the $100 budget !!!

Thx in advance...

I just got the PZ Mosquito as well and got a chance to fly it just before this two week streak of wind. It fly's very nicely but nothing like the P-51 or Sukhoi. This plane is VERY stable in the air and though it can do rolls and loops, they are very slow even on high rate. Because it's so stable, it REALLY hates the wind... i wouldn't recommend more than 5mph. Also, triple check everything for you first maiden, i thought i checked everything only to crash because a piece of tape was missing on my right aileron... Also my rudder would get stuck sometimes (this is striaght out the box).

P.S. if anyone knows a way "that works" to make this model brushless, please let me know.

I kinda like that Quick Silver s2, I just happen to have a set of app15e wings laying around, and Im still wondering what to do with them. The carbon fiber rods look real good.

Hi CrimzonRider, thanks for your reply, I have attached a 3 View blue print of the Quicksilver 2S for you in case you decide to do the same with your Apprentice wings.

WoW thanks didnt expect that. Definitely a good FPV platform those wings have a ton of lift, the ol app15e almost wants to fly by itself. Kinda looking towards a nightflyer/FPV. Thanks for the plans.
have a good one

My newest is the Rich model P-38 a very nice ARF that didn't require any mods to put it together. I just had some wrinkles in the covering in some spots to iron down no biggie considering some arfs should be called ARMs "almost ready to modify".

I have 2 480 motors 10x6 counter rotating props, 2 25 amp ESC's with a castle 10 amp bec to power the 7 9 gram servos. I just put the 10x6 on and haven't had a chance to see what the watt meter shows I am hoping for at least a 400 plus watts. I will find that out tomorrow.

A big thanks to some folks that helped me out with setting up the power system.
Looking forward to a nice day to maiden this one and get the adrenalin flowing and the hands shaking.
I am hoping to do this with one of the club members to video the flight for me. From what Grasshopper said this is a nice flying plane.

I just bought a new Night Vapor two weeks ago. I haven't flown it yet. I'm waiting for the weather to get better so I can take it out on those nights when there is no wind.
