Default GWS-15 the build is on...Kontronik pusher

I am in the midst of building this "ARF" jet. I just cannot bring myself to use an EDF power system, so she will be a pusher. Below is a picture from another thread that is in the same construction stage as mine, with the exception of a jet pilot I have installed.

Thanks for the kind words Nice to hear from another that isn't interested in EDF. I have don't mind them at the field. I like to see different setups and power systems.

I am a bit concerned about your motor choice for your nice new Funtana if you are shooting for 80oz of thrust. Looks like you will need a pretty big prop. The listing for the plane shows a reccomended 52 gram motor using a 9x6 prop. Will you have enough clearance to run an 11 or 12 incher? Are the specs accurate for the Funtana at the web site, something doesn't seem to add up looking at the wing span, fuse length and flying weight?

Hi The weight info on the web page may be a typo, not sure yet, anyway, I am going to be using some big wheels, so i can fly off the grass, Hopefully, and once i get the plane together, I will see how much clearance I have, then I can chose a prop that will work, I may not be able to use the prop that will give me 80oz of thrust, but it will be the biggest the plane will be able to use, the motor, lipo, prop adapters are still in the mail, so it will be a little while before I am able to put it all together, I have not even opened the box yet just waiting to get everything in, then I will assemble it, and see how it goes, I am also waiting on a eflite motor mount for a Dons 2700kv Wicked motor, thats going in a pusher jet, that should be fun too, with a 4.7x4.2 apc prop, may see 80 to 100 mph from that jet, Maybe, it does about 60mph now, with a little towerpro 2409-12, and a 7x6 prop, Take care, Chellie

Hi Richard Thats a nice looking plane, i used to build from kits too, but that takes to much time, and I would rather fly than build I built a Ultimate 40 to 60 size Bi Plane from a kit, and bought a brand new Computer radio for it, the computer radio failed, and down went the biplane, was I mad, all that time building, only to have a radio failure, from a new Airtronics Radio, no more Airtronics radios for me, only JR now, and no more kit building I spent a month building that plane, Take care, Chellie

I just ordered a flat foam biplane. I'm building it for an attempt at indoor flight. I hope it comes in around 8ozs. AUW and will have about 90w of power.

here is the motor that I ordered
http://cgi.ebay.com/3548-10-Outrunne...QQcmdZViewItem
I jst finished my parkzone fw-190 brushles conversion, I went with a hxt 35-36c motor, and a 10 X 6 prop, hextronic 36 pro esc, this is my first brushless motor and well I am not sure how to attatch the prop to it, I also think I might have the motor mounted a bit low on he plane but, I did a quick test and everything is working and good air flow out the back side over the wings. I am going to take some pictures tomorrow or late tonight and post them for you all to look at. I ordered all the parts off of unitedhobbies.com and the prop seems to be a lot heavyer then the stock prop, could this mean that its for gas? how do you tell the difference?

Did you see the size of that chicken!!

If you mean the newest plane I've purchased, then that would be the GWS Corsair. Always wanted one. Found a good deal on one NIB.

If you mean newest as in ready to fly then that would be the Graupner Elektro Kadett I bought from H-L last year.

Hi you can attach the prop in 2 different ways, one is with the adapter that came with the motor, it attaches to the can, and you can use a collet adapter that will allow you to attach the prop to the other side of the motor, with a 4mm collet adapter, here are some pics, take care, Chellie







the X mount fits behind the prop adapter in the bottom pic

Hi Twmaster Check the corsair wing for warpage, I had a GWS corsair, and the wing was warped, could not figure out why, the plane kept pulling to the right, finally checked real close, and the wing was warped, it was twisted down on the right side, that sure drove me crazy, I found it by laying squares and levels on the wing, its real hard to see a warped W wing, Take care, Chellie

Nice looking F-15. How is the foam on it??? Are they still using that Ice Box type of foam?? I think my Little Screamers Super Park Jet motor on there would scream on 4S!!! Do you have a AWU weight on it? I'll bet it will be lighter without 2 fans and motors in there. What are the flight controls? Tailerons? Elevons? or Elevator/Ailerons?

Is ther a build thread on those GWS F-15's??

Hi What do you think of the Just Go Fly 500T brushless motor in your F15 With a 7x5 or 7x6 prop , or a 500TH with a 5.5x2.5 prop, in a wing it will do 127mph you can change the can and make a 500T or 500TH motor

My latest plane is an 03 Wright E3D my brother-in-law gave me. I need to get a battery pack for it and find a place to fly it. It's much bigger and faster than what I'm used to flying, so I'm taking things real slow and looking for an instructer to try it first.

Thats a real nice plane, it has a thick wing, so it will be easy to fly, Its best to have an experienced pilot to check it out first and trim it, Take care, Chellie
