Westerly Svenson III 59in by:CoMIYC69
Airplane
Radio-Control

Here is a real nice cabin style plan for a beginner modeller and RC enthusiast. The design allows for two settings for the dihedral. Both are suitable for beginners. The PDF plans are excellent quality. The Westerly kit is still available on Vintage sites but experct over $300 USD. Most of Svenson's blueprints for all models are free on their site. http://www.svensons.com/airplanes/

An additional light weight servo can operate the throttle but adding ailerons would require wing redesign. You can see on the plan there is no room for ailerons.

These are the models I first started out with in RC. Cheap and really easy to fly like a kite without strings and learn the basics for new pilots or young pilots. However, especially for young pilots this will get old fast so after this is done start on a 4-5 channel system.
(If you think the hobby may not be for you, the minimum 3 channel will work fine. For those in love with this sport think ahead and get a 6 - 10 channel for this plane and it will be all you need for some time.)

The video is a near perfect flight of this model using an O.S.40. Manufacturer spec allows up to .410 ci Search as I might I couldn't find any instructions. Perhaps someone speaking Swedish could search?

Piper Vagabond 74in Airplane Radio-Control 29/08/15 02:56:57am

Piper Vagabond 74in by:granddadr

Piper Vagabond 74in
The Piper "Vagabond" was the first airplane produced after World War II. Essentially, it is a "wide-body" Piper Cub with a slightly shorter wingspan. Instead of the "fore and aft" seating of the J-3 Cub, the Vagabond has the two seats arranged in a "side by side" fashion. Many of the parts are interchangeable between the cub and the vagabond.

It would be an interesting difference at a field where there are a lot of "cubs".
BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout Airplane Radio-Control 28/08/15 06:00:53pm

BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout by:granddadr

BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout
The full size Boeing YL-15 Scout was a small liaison aircraft built at the end of World War II. It was a short take-off and landing (STOL) aircraft powered by a 125 hp Lycoming engine. Only twelve (12) were built and Boeing decided not to marketing it as a civilian general aviation aircraft. The twelve that were produced went to the United States Army and were transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Alaska for various duties.

A true scale version would be a neat airplane that very few other modelers have. It should be a stable and fun airplane and depending upon the scale used, would be suitable for electric, glow or gas power.
