View Full Version : Has anyone modeled the Hughes H-1 Racer?

I just ordered the three view from John Ponds service. I wanted to scratch build a "standoff scale" - actually, the way I build, probably "stand wayyy off scale" park flyer. 1/9 scale would be a 42.33 inch wingspan. Looks doable.

Jim Young has modeled one at 1/12 scale(32"w.s.) He also offers a short kit.Here's a link,http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=429655&highlight=hughes+

thanks, enut!! I glommed all over that info, got all the build threads, pics etc. Will be a big help. Emailed the author for how to purchase his short kit. Will not build that kit since it is a 1/12 scale and 31 inch wingspan is shorter than I want, but will use the plans, ect. I want to build 1/9 scale, 44 in wingspan, 36 inch fuse.:)

What plans did you use? What power system?

I drew my own plans from 3d,s at 1.700meter span powered by OS 120 fs
weighs 5.5 kg fitted with retracts and flaps only had 4 flights so far flighs very good and slows up for landing

Umm, I guess if you don't want to build much and have a big enough wallet, there's the 40" ARF from Maxford USA. Even can get optional retracts.

Here's the Maxford one. There was a main gear retract not locking down so the maiden was scratched last Sat.

There's a video of it taxiing for take off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuZmambF-w8

That Maxford H-1 is a nice looking plane. I'm looking forward to an eventual fisrt flight report. Good luck!

Looking fwd to a report, too! That one has been on my 'just maybe' list for a while, but so have many others. At least this one is more affordable than most, and with retracts!

Hope the damage wasn't bad.

It's owned by Rudy the manager of Air Land hobbies. Don't really know when he'll try the 2nd maiden. But I'll try to find out and film it.
