Ran across one of these on E-Bay but got out-bid.  It is really a classic!  Anyone have the plans and decal sheet they could scan for me?  I'd love to build one just for display.

When I was a kid I don't remember seeing many Enterprise .049-sized kits in the hobby-shops.  Lots and lots of Scientific and also Sterling.  But not many Enterprise, so had never seen one of these before.


252510586937 Item number for one on Ebay right now.

I think it sounds like you have a problem withthe ESC

for a reference, here is a simple trouble shooting guide that may help

everyone plug their ears while I scold John for being un-helpful (and yes, he knows the difference between a Moon-liner and a Moon-liner.)

As puzzling as it seems, I have overheard qualified commercial pilots answer this one incorrectly and it seems that we are alone with counter operating controls in the aeronautical world.

(Now that's sure to attract a rebuttal!)

I'll rebut that statement about being alone with counter operating controls.
My RC Sailplanes all have camber added when elevator is applied. They call it snapflap sometimes. It helps the same way, by giving the wing more lift when you are also increasing the angle of attack (where you need more camber, coincidentally). No propellers to pull the plane here, so they need to be efficient.
I'm one of the "crazies" that also has reverse snapflap programmed into my sailplanes, so that down elevator also applies up wing trailing edge.
Even though the wing profiles (airfoils) are not zero camber (symmetrical) like on a C/L stunt plane, the variable camber give by the flaps and ailerons working in harmony to the elevator, is extremely effective.

This works very well, as the tail moment on the sailplanes is very long (although the tail volume is very small, relative to our C/L stunt planes).

Why don't you buy the one on Ebay? Check this one out:

Went into Castle Link and tried to reset ESC to factory specs, and saved data, with no change. Still don't get any beeps when I plug in the battery.

Was the stunt flier in the first video a member of a World Competition team? If so, what score did he receive in the competition? This looks like a practice flight. No judges visible. It would be useful to know extent to which errors apparent in recording, highlighted by tracking, are typical of competitive patterns.

I agree that SLC under silkspan is a waste of time and weight. SLC OVER the fiber with NO DOPE on the fiber yields a strong, light surface. Scrubbing the SLC with steel wool or a scotch pad will give a surface that is ready for primer.

See the thread on this. The people who have tried it love it.

exactly, the problem with the duo sylkspan/slc is weight
slc over sylkspan seems to me useless, as slc alone is stronger than sylkspan and enough to proveide wing strenght. then you can paint over slc, but i still rather paint over ultracote, almost same weight and you already have the base color PLUS makes compound curvers perfectly
my ast plane was first covered with the sylkspan/slc, turned out heavy, i stripped all and ultracoted the red on the wings, yellow is paint

I have a folding saw horse and I screw adaptor plates to it. The pipe legs of the saw harsw are about 1" dis so I kept four extruded bricks from the houe I buit as dead weights if the rig moved. The bricks have three holes about 1.5" dia.

So far, I've run engines up to an LA 46 on this rig and it doesn't creep away.

Phil, since you are testing to ensure that the engines are ok, I suggest you think of something similar.

If you need a pic—tomorrow.
