The Burrito builds light, I think it would be a great choice to learn to hover at 7000 ASL with a TT Pro 46!

Look up PaulSwany, he can hook you up!

When I flew that high (mostly I flew Gliders) the guys all had trouble getting enough power. If I were thinking good hover with that motor at that altitude I'd be thinking under 4 pounds.

Burrito would do it if you were really careful, plan ahead and think about weight at every turn. Arfs are a different story. The only one I have seen come out way light was that "Bad Boy" (search RCU)

Building the Burrito is easier than some ARFs. But it will take some care to keep it light for your needs. talk with your guy there to see if he's good with it.

you guys still think i should go for a burrito
is there a good chance it will hover..at 7000'ASL
with my 46..
if i put a AAA NIMH battery in there?

i really wish it would work lol cause it would be the cheapest cause i can sue my engine and some digital servos i got with my 7C.
what do u guys think..

The battery is a good start. Keep the covering light, use light servos, light tires, anything you can do to lighten it. I don't know what the lightest was but I know some were right at 4#

I really don't know what else would come in any lighter w/o advanced building techniques (Or paying Bizzaro Bill to build you a Sledge)

Give it a try. I'm confident it will hover, though it may not rocket out of it.

I hear ya man. I started at about 19, and everyone told me hobbies were for older guys and I should be saving my money for other things. I honestly don't think I would have made it through college if I hadn't have gotten into this hobby. It gave me a break from everything that I could clear my mind and have a good time. But this thread isn't about that so all I will tell you is this keep at it, and don't let the naysayers keep you down. Get you a burrito kit, build it light and then fly the heck out of it. It's prolly the best profile out there right now for beginners. It's also a great profile for experts as well.

Another thing to remember if you never act like a kid, they will eventually stop treating you like one. May take a while, but eventually you'll win the old farts over until you start hovering over the runway! That always gets em fired up! :D

Good luck dude!

He's just a ***!!

He'll send it ASAP don't sweat it.

You'll need thin CA glue. You'll need flex CA for final assembly. Just use epoxy on the motor mount, save weight by using CA everywhere else. You need all harware, i.e. hinges, tank, wheels, pushrods, control horns, etc. At least 2 rolls of covering.

don't sweat it and don't worry about the details until they come up. Paul's dirrections are very clear, and he's always just an emeil away for questions. He'll usually answer you within hours. Plus there are dozens of us that can answer questions.

I can build these planes in a week of evenings (and I spend too much time on covering), and one guy did it in one day. But you should plan on a couple of weeks to get it done. Probably several trips to the LHS and a few questions. But you can do it.

A lot of guys build on sheetrock. I use a foam sheet on a very flat table.

have fun

Flex CA=CA glue that flexes. It's thick and has a more giving finished hardness. It replaces epoxy in the final assembly steps.

THe tank.....well, I'm not the one to ask. I size my tanks for 1/2 hour flights! Most guys don't go that big. My Burrito has 14oz GP tank right now.
