Central Kansas and Kansas City

Sarg, I feel you. I grew up in Hays and we flew off a pasture with cows and patties to avoid (way back in around 1980). I was just out there for Easter but did not bring any planes. Too windy anyway....

Princess Plane specs

Gramps,

You have me there as I can't see the motor with the cowl on. If memory is correct, it is a HK NTM motor somewhere near a 3842 with about 1000kv and pulls north of 550w (maybe 600w at WOT)....

Thanks for the info, Chellie. I have used the Testor's paint but they are messy when doing a large project. Water based paint can be used in my shop where I can control things. As I expect to air...

Cub Pilot,

I've been away for some time due to work, other interests, and just plain tired. I've not stopped building or flying but just not at a very fast pace. As to your comment, yes I am very...

An elevator snap is when a plane will try to do a snap roll with only elevator input. Some planes, especially many warbirds, seem to have this problem. If the throw on the elevator is too great, and...

Glad to see you found a kit so quickly. As I did the electric version, I can't say if the glow version will have the parts for landing gear or not. That will be the easy part to convert if necessary....

Grasshopper, the plane does not look too bad for 30 or so years of wear. The refinished one looks a bit plain compared to the original but more scale. Let's hope the young one grows up and has the...

I would have to agree with Mike and get this kit if you want a PT-19. Even if you have to convert a glow version to electric, I don't think it would be too much work. The only real concern would be...

I've not seen the glow version of this kit so can not comment on that. I think the glow version does come with the necessary parts to have the landing gear. If not, it is not that hard to add.

As...

I have the small Pica PT-19 marketed as the electric. It does not have any landing gear provisions and the cowl is designed for an electric motor. It flies fine but I found that using a 80-100 watt...

Vickers Wellington

I don't know if this would qualify but does converting a plan for a glow engine to electric do? I took one of Frank Baker's plans from the AMA archives (1981 I think) and built it for electric.
