Default Park Zone Stinson SR-10 Reliant

I have been flying mostly built up scale models for years. Have been obsessed with Stinson Reliants since I was a kid building the Comet SR-7. I am building a detailed SR-7 version of Pat Tritle's 58" w/s SR-10 but it's taking too long. I ran out and bought the PZ Foam SR-10 PNP version ( comes with everything installed except receiver, battery pack and flap servo) you supply receiver, battery and transmitter. The BNF version has everything installed except flaps. You supply a compatible DSM2 2.4ghz transmitter and flap servo if desired.

If you like golden age round engined tail draggers you will be very happy with this one. Very easy to trim out and fly makes you look better than you are. Does easy loops and rolls, stall turns, touch and goes and graceful takeoffs and landings as if on rails. Has quality E-Flite 480 outrunner motor. Haven't hooked up flaps yet, fun to play with but not needed. The videos on You Tube show how nicely they fly.

This will be my new relaxation flyer.

I dont like to build Kits any more, because it takes to long, and I would rather be flying too Glad you found a nice ARF Plane, Thats the way to go now days, building a kit is more expensive than buying a ARF, I cant make a plane for what i can Buy a ARF for on Sale Take care and Have fun, Chellie

I'am with Chellie on this....It seems I just don't have the time anymore to want to build...I want to throw my battery and receiver in and go takeoff!! There are so many nice and well built ARF's out there, its just to easy to fly what you have wanted to fly for so long. I have one project, a WACO Troop Glider CG-4C stick and tissue that has been sitting there for ever, only reason I bought it was my Uncle landed in one during WW2, its for his wall...well maybe I might get one flight in her

Some of the scale-ish foamy ARF's fly much better than balsa and ply ARF's or kit/scratch-built models. The cost of building supplies and accessories, if you can find them, at LHS is ridiculous. Still, I don't get the same thrill out of the maiden flight of something that can be screwed, glued and taped together in the time it takes to charge the battery pack.

I agree with you there to a point, but these Airfield 800mm and even the larger Airfield warbirds will give you a pretty good rush. The Mustang and the Corsair I have really haul butt!!!
