RCM Trainer 60

This is a fantastic "Trainer". I enjoyed flying mine. Here is a great place for Beginners and Novices to start. You can change the Center of Gravity on this plane as you learn to go from Trainer to almost Pattern. Airfoil has the same shape both top and bottom. This makes it easier for the novice to learn to fly inverted. The actual landing gear is Aluminum and comes prebent in kit, you will need to get that done at a shop.

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the RCM Trainer 60 or any other PDF plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.

RCM Trainer 60, excellent versatile trainer BernardW on 18/07/2017 14:57
These days most people buy their trainers as ARF kits but a few, like me, like the idea of building. The build log link for this model is to my log on RCGroups, by a beginner for beginners. I'm now soloing this model as I've reached intermediate level and it's a favourite. It's an excellent trainer design, very versatile. With forward CG it's stable and easy to fly like any trainer, as your skills improve shift CG aft and it has surprising aerobatic ability. I used a Saito FA-56, I thought it might be underpowered but not at all, it's a great match. Will handle larger engines and take you through to advanced training and beyond, many keep flying this model as a favourite even when they've moved on to other types. It's faster than most trainers but still easy to fly, airspeed doesn't make it difficult. Recommended if you wish to build your own high wing model.
