Either way I'm dreaming right now...other projects wait and the biggest one...baby Page #2 is going to be here in September.

I'm becoming a no-building kit hoarder. I gotta get the Stinson done...it's clogging up the pipeline.


I found a motor on hobbyking for lonestar to use on the evo cap prototype I sold him. He told me that it pulled pretty good and it wasn't very expensive. I'll see how it performs at hobro this weekend but it could be a good low cost option.

I know the bro's don't like it, but my OS .75 with header and pipe with an APC 14X4W is pulling a 6.5lb Primo 60 just fine. It was be a perfect power plant for one of these. It would rock at 5-5.5 lbs!

Motor $75
Header $30

Just finished up the covering on the fuse. Through a borrowed scheme from the edge and a random color selection I think I've created one of the prettiest profiles I've ever built. DAMN I love these colors. You really have to see it in person to appreciate it.

Nice bikeman! Its hard to tell from the photo I posted but the blue is actually transparent violet so in the light it will be a little different color.

I'm not a fan of green generally, but that looks really sharp. Good choice and simple yet attractive scheme.

I threw it up on the scale at random: 26oz covered. I'm still short aileron and rudder hinges so I think I'll come out right at the same weight as yours.

Cool! So the weight saving stuff I did worked to keep the weight of the more complex EVO down to the same as a nicely built mad yak kit.

My estimate for all gear for a plane this size is around 2lbs so I'm going to guess a bit over four and a half pounts all up with battery.

I'm still waiting for the epoxy on the pushrods to dry but I threw it all on a scale for the first time. With the big battery, drumroll........ 4lbs 7oz. With the small battery, 4lbs 4.

Holy crap... I've created a monster. The scary thing is that there's more weight to lose. I didn't build this in mega super weight savings mode. I just tossed it together. With careful balsa selection on the sticks and wire landing gear this is easily a 4lb flat plane. Maybe under if you got creative with the servo selection. You've all seen the videos of the yellow one at 5lbs and change. This should be incredible!

Holy crap. That is nice. With a 3300 4S battery landing gear and four servos I'm at 4 lbs 4 oz. still need pushrods, esc and RX. I must have a really heavy motor and servos.... :rockon:
