I was wondering if a sig ultimate funfly is a good plane to learn hovering on ( :oops: ). My only experiences are a normal trainer, and a 4star 40.

I've had two. It hovers well, but not a good harrier plane, and not at all good at knife edge.

There are far too many chioces now to start off with the Ultimate. And for the cost of an Ulitimate and building/covering, there are ARFs that fly better.

PaulSwany sells the burrito's? With shipping costs it is cheaper then a ultimate I think. Thanks for the replies.

I have an ultimate in the covering stages that I got off ebay for $60 shipped. I'm Gatorkote-ing it, it shall be SUPER FRESH! women will want to be with me, and men will want to be me.

oh and i'm hoping it will be a good tumbler.

Cut the elevator clearance to give 60 degrees of throw each way, and max out the rudder throw. Put the CG 1/4 to 3/8 inch AFT of the recommended spot.

That's how I had my last one.

It tumbled like a MUTHA!

Let's see a pic when it's done.

I just finished surface prep and im going to start covering soonish. I'm not going to work too quickly on it, i spent too much time building and working and not enough time flying, so i'll be at the field whenever i can.

on the other hand, i just pirated its motor to get my ef edge back in the air, so i need to buy a new one and an rx to get all three of my hoes in the air. mvvs is going on the katana, os46 on a pipe on the ef edge, any recs for a strong engine? a pipe wont fit unless i have a tight bend on the header, OR a rear exhaust. so i need a can muffler. irvine 53? webra 50? or get a new mvvs and set it up for rear exhaust? or an AX? i really dont anticipate this plane being that light, im going to have 6 standard servos (one per aileron + tail surfaces) , one mini, and a 5 cell battery in it, and i didnt do anything different from the kit to save weight, except use light wheels.

I had a real nice one till I midaired it with constrictor :eek: lightened stock fuse, flew good till deadstick. broke it in half. built full fuse- and put 1' positive incidence in top wing. flew great then, and would almost glide! got a burrito now, almost too relaxing! was tailtouching it in the pond sunday, and just horsing it in and out... nothing else would do that, except maybe the mini on a good day...
