Hey secretsquirrel you still flying the spacewalker ? I am layed off from my construction job for the winter and my real job I only have maybe ten total days of work between now and march
That means lots of RC building time for me. I am really thinking I want the 1/3 scale spacewalker. 104 inch wing span and lots of dollars but it will be a fun winters project http://sigmfg.com/cgi-bin/dpsmart.exe/M ... html?E+Sig
Are you still liking the way yours flies ? Any problems with it ?
I haven't flown it in a couple of months, but it will be in the rotation next time I go out. I crunched up the cowl so cosmetically, it needs some work, but it is still functional. It is a lot of fun to fly. Very relaxing as it is not difficult. There is enough dihedral in the wing to make it quite stable, though you can still get it inverted without much trouble. My only real complaint about the one I have (1/4 scale, Great Planes) is that it has a one piece wing. Luckily it fits in my wife's Durango. All the other issues are due to it being an ARF and me not putting it together.
Things like using a dowel as the pushrod for the elevator. I am thinking that I may pull all the hardware in it and re-vamp it. New servos, pull-pull on the tail, etc.
Several people at my field have said they have had either the 1/4 or 1/3 scale version and everyone has had positive comments. Wish I had that much free time. Though these days, that kind of free time tends to come with an accompanying drop in income. That I do not want.
Look forward to seeing how it progresses.
