WANTED Tug airframe circa 100cc

Post by Elliot Howells » 03 Sep 2019, 10:40

Hello!

following the loss of my 1:3 Pawnee and the sale of the too big to live with Decathlon, I now find myself without a big tug until my Wilga is finished, which knowing me as well as I do, won't be this year... I need a tug to hang a DLE 111cc off, any out there?

Preferably something with 2 piece wings please and removable tailplane would be nice, but I can live with that.

What ya got?

Cheers, Elliot.

Thanks Barry, but it's a bit too much money for my budget, I'm after something without an engine preferably.

Cracking model though, would love to fly one. Particularly like the twin fins.

Jez, one wing let go, the root rib wasn't really fixed to much else in the wing, the bolts held the root to the fuz, the rest flew down by itself! real shame, I was just getting to love her handling too, only did a gentle loop to try and emulate a bit of tugging stresses...

Never mind eh?
