PSS Group build
« on: October 08, 2018, 08:45:03 AM »
Alright, so after our last meeting, looks like there is demand for a PSS group project.
I have listed a few, mainly some that I am currently working on, or already at different design stages, but the project is open to ideas and the stuff you like!

The PSSA Hurricane is a proven design, and readily available ( https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/pss-hawker-hurricane-53/ )
The P51D will happen regardless as I have another project.
A-10.. Well, you so it flying
F86 - Started a simple design last year, but look at this month RCM&E, and you have a plan for one of them if I am correct.
Gloster Meteor... No comment Andrew!  >:D

Take in consideration the various building skills, time and material s needed for some of the projects.

Anyway, you asked for it, so here it is :) Shoot!

Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Hi Fred,

    I am happy to go with the flow on this one. Always been a fan of the Learjet though.

Keep up the good work

A slightly bigger P51 would be fun. Maybe 1200 to replace my old foamie one Ralph? Otherwise I agree, the Learjet could be fun. Options, options.....!

Hi Fred,
I would be happy to build anything in the list but would really fancy a learjet about 1200mm wing span a P47 would also be nice. I was thinking of scaling up the free plan in RCM&E to 200% could you suggest an air-foil to use?

Thanks Fred. Great suggestions. The F86 is my favorite jet of all time, so it was a simple choice for me. Never have done a chrome finish so that would be fun. The plans in RCME this month are a bit small but could be scaled up? The hurricane is a good option as you say since the plans/ wood pack etc are readily available. A fouga magister would have been nice too, but I know you’ve already been there done that! Loved the silver swallows........

Looking forward to the poll results

Conor.

Of course I had to click on Meteor, just for you Fred  >:D
But in reality a P47 or Learjet would be great!

There is always one!  ::)

Soooo, looks like so far, only 10 votes, with one marginal winner... so far! :)

Looks like a good winter build :) talking about that, saw this earlier, made me giggle :)

Alright so, looks like the people has spoken and have a winner. Tiny margin and unexpected one (for me anyway!)

Should I leave the poll run longer?
Some wants to change their mind?
