I have two, One I bought several years ago. It was damamged and had been converted to gloww using a os15. I fixed it up a got it to fly, and its a fun aircraft to fly,
The second is built but no internals,
I want to keep it electric on the second (brushless) So I am looking for CG information, any recommendation on motors etc. I will take just about any info I can get. Nither of the aircraft I have, came with any kind of instructions. Also could use a new canopy or suggestions on how to make one

Thanks for the reply

Interesting you mention that you have one converted to glow power. Are you sure it is not a Patricia...? Kyosho made a model identical to the Valencia apart from it was powered by an OS (a 0.10 I think) and obviously had different decals. These are quite rare and I am looking for a NIB one at the moment. It could have been repaired with Valencia parts and decals so you think it's a conversion...

I am afraid I don't have CofG info and such - more technical that I have ever got with my Valencias - I would measure it up for you but mind are all in storage some 50 miles away from my home.

Would love to see some pics of the glow powered Valencia/Patricia.

Regards the canopy, I'm not sure how you could make one without some sort of thermoforming machine. You could make up a more angular one by cutting and sticking some thin plastic...???

Cheers and happy flying...!

I have a Valencia too. I scanned the owners manual. Here is the link to download the PDF. I hope that helps. Mine is stock other than a speed control so that I can throttle up and down as opposed to all on or all off. That was a good $60 investment.

hey, would you still have the kyosho valencia directions as a pdf? I have a new one in the box, but no directions or manual. I'm considering building it as I have always loved the lines of that plane. Any ideas on a modern way to power it?

thanks

Merc, there's a member offer to email the manual in PDF form in this newer Valencia thread: http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40337

Default Valencia CG

I realize this is an older thread but I picked up an unbuild Valencia the other day complete with the instruction manual. Manual says CG is 50-60 mm from leading edge. Hope this helps.

Default Used to have a Patricia..

Hi everyone,

First time poster, just joined.. Yup.. I had Kyosho Patricia and it had an OS .10 engine in it. Very easy to fly, very stable. Like a dumb @$$ I got rid of it, not knowing how rare it was. I'd really like to find one, or at least the Valencia. Can anyone recommend a similar airplane / m/g. I'm getting back into R/C (I was never very good at it in the first place) but would like a recommendation of something slow and stable to re-learn properly with.

Thanx!

Randy

There's a thread in the "Hi-Performance & Sailplanes" section with discussion and photos of Valencias that some of us have brought back to life and are flying, you might be interested in taking a look.

As for the Patricia, after almost 5 years of looking, I have managed to score two of these aircraft new-in-box. They are possibly the rarest of all the old Kyoshos as I have pretty much seen all other models on eBay or in classifieds at some point over the years, but never a Patricia. Keep looking, there must be more than 2 out there...!!!

Those are all dead links by now.

I have one but will need to scan it for you. Not sure how long it will take me to do this.
