Hi gossie

Now that is a sharp good looking nostalgia machine, give us a flight report at some point.

Funny! I still own the original Kit from this plane. It was produced in the 80's (or even earlier?) in Belgium by Svenson.

Two weeks ago we here in Australia had a three day fly in near Coffs Harbour NSW.  About 40 of us flew and stayed in a small place called Sawtell that's by the ocean near the flying field.  It is a fly for fun type thing for CL, FF and vintage type RC.

It was suggested those that had BLUE PANTS should bring them, and six of them turned up.   All were flown and none were crashed.

If you build it John, put some right rudder and right thrust on the engine as well as plenty of weight in the right hand tip.

CG needs to be more forward than shown on the plan.     

When I built mine I put the rudder in but no out thrust and it felt like it was coming in all the time.    I put the out thrust into it and now it stays out there, but to me still feels nervous.
I gave the guy who has the yellow one pictured a fly and he suggested it was nervous/twitchy and needed the CG to be close to the LE.    When I get the chance I'll pull the motor and get some lead into it.

I have drawn these plans  Wink
There is also one version, traced (?) from the Aeromodeller plan, in the plans gallery here.
http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_plans/details.php?image_id=4270&mode=search

Is it possible for you to post a full size pdf file here or in the plans gallery?
(another place would be Outerzone. Steve now also takes CAD files, so people can more easily design modifications for different sizes and engines)

Thanks for that Gossie. I have a couple of 2.5ccc diesels that would suit it I hope.
Carlucho22's plans are very nice - thanks again for sending them.
Did you fly yours on 50 ft lines Gossie? Its been a while since I have done it.

52 ft. lines is what I use.    I flew lots and lots of CL when I was a teenager in the '50s, but now I get dizzy fairly quickly.   Probably not enough practice?Huh??
  Even on the 52s it seems very fast and I find it a bit hard to keep up with it.

Of course it was fast Gossie, an Ollie (any type) has much more grunt than the ED Racer, and with the C  of G too far back, interesting to say the least, 55' lines would have been better, we can have another go next month.

Would you believe David, I got it this very afternoon, gave the well oiled up CS Tiger a flick or two over, and it feels terrific, got out three sets of lines as well a bit more prep. for our week at the magnificent Sawtell and the Old Pharts meet.
Will bring all the handles with lines and use the longest........I think they might be old Vintage Class B lines 50+ ft?Huh??    We will check all as I don't want a line break.    Se ya soon. Smiley

Hi Gossie, I've got .012 lines in both 55' and 58' - you're welcome to use them at Coffs if you need to.

We need to get some sort of 2-up or 3-up Blue Pants thing happening this year...

Sounds good to me Steve.   Thanks for the offer, as the old bloke needs to slow things down a bit.   Mine are about 50'.

2-3 up sounds SENSATIONAL.  I think I might just watch as would hate to take someone out.   Afraid the days in the 1950s flying the A Racers three up on I think it was 42' lines with real Oliver Tigers dragging them around.

What about two up doing a few tandem stunts. When was the last time anyone did two up stunting like the old days in the old US mags?

I'm pretty sure there is a PDF file in the HPA Plans Gallery. If not, at least Outerzone has one (from Aeromodeller).

Just to resurrect this thread for a moment . . . .

Thinking of building one for a CS Tiger that's being run in at the moment. The tanks is a bit of a one off (Usually I like to fit a 'bought' tank coz I hate soldering them up) What are folks using in theirs? I've been through the Brodak lists and can't see one to suit  Tongue

I notice the fin has an aerofoil rather than being flat and offset - is this what people have used? Surely no offset as well as the shaped section

Haven't seen the current Aerotwiddler Bill, but Den regularly pitches up at the local CL events so I'll ask him the question (He doesn't have anything suitable listed)

I have right rudder and right thrust on mine to keep it out there.
