I should be on your per-order list for a ARF SV-11

When you can, I bet a lot of us would appreciate an update on the various finish schemes of the newer versions of the ARF

The kits are on the container on the ship  steaming here now, They did not ship on time, but  they have left China, about a week or so , and  are  on the way here  now, I do not like the delays, but had no control over that, so i am sorry  for  your  long  wait
I will post when they arrive,

Are these coming to you or Brodaks? Thinking about 2 ARC's. Have the control line crimp issues been worked out or do they need taken care of first? And how much are they.
Thanks

They come into Brodaks first but nobody knows the price until they get here and from the hype they're the best ones yet. Mid Nov is my guess depending on boat speed.

Hi Rick
The  SV11
SV-11 ARC…. 189.99
SV-11 ARF…. 199.99
 As I said earlier  they were delayed again but have been shipped, and I look for them in a few weeks to be in the States
I will have  ARFs in both places, here and at Brodaks  that will ship from there first
The prototypes  I got, and checked/trouble shoot ,  are the est ARFs I have seen  and  the controls are much better and are  HD controls, so I think people will be pleased,  I will try to post pictures  as soon as  these  come in

Regards
Randy

I am sure Randy will answer....but my understanding one or more evaluation versions early this year were sent to Brodak--- and I think Dennis A did a brief review on the e powered version... sounds like most concerns from previous version were addressed
Sounded like better glues, better covering, much improve controls

Most of that is my take away reading between the lines....sorry I can not find the review

BUT it was positive enough for me to add the $200 to my budget to get an ARF SV-11

only $10 more than the ARC....worst case remove and recover if it sux

Hi Allan  yes  covering , build quality, controls, all  are  better, I have  2 prototypes here and they are much improved over the old company, But they are not custom built  stunter, they are  higher quality  ARFs  and  ARCs

This  new ARFs  are  made with wings in 2 halves  so they can be shipped  easier,  BUT  I will need  to get them in  before  we can get a  price and size,  so I will  tell you as soon  as they get here

Hi Allan-
It is the .46. If i need more grunt, the .55 will bolt on in place of it. I don't think there is much weight difference, and the mounting patterns are the same.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi all. Do you use the AX with stock timing or tuned for stunt?

I haven't run the AX in a plane yet. But based on Randy Cuberly's experience/advice, I think it will be great, at least running in a 2-2-2 with a lower pitch prop like a 12x4 or 13x4.
If it is a mess, then I can always sell it to an RC guy, they are fairly popular.
If it works out, I'll sell the brand new RC carb and muffler, and buy another one.
Might try the smaller AX.35 as well, although I am not sure why the AX.46 is $149, and the AX.35 is $169 (?!).
Must be the new math at OS.

Kind Regards as well,
Target

I am too dense to know how to read Rand'y response

I sport fly and do not care if I can complete a full pattern
Other than a run away or flame out I am not really very concerned with upright vs inverted speeds ...but I have adjusted tank height to get rid of gross changes

I have a Randy Smith  Magnum .52 for the new ARF SV-11

Box is wrapped under the Tree and I saw the box label had a Brodak Tank number recommended

I have had bad luck with Brodak tanks and prefer the GRW tanks I get from RSM

I also have a few Hays long thin 4oz on hand

I realize most who would answer ....especially for what this Stunt Plane is used for, will suggest 5~6 up to 7 oz tanks

But for the Magnum .52 SV-11 what are opinions on various tanks, that will fit? ... Muffler pressure, uniflo, standard, ATF... ease of install and adjusting

To date I have 7 flyable airplanes and each was set up based on forum suggestions and 100% worked first time without any/much  grief

I know Randy is not a fan of muffler pressure but so far with the OS engines it works fine for me

Thoughts...opinions

Get a  6 oz  tank, unilflow,  the  GRW tank is OK, if you like those, then go with it.  I would still recommend  NOT using Pressure,  anything that goes wrong  Pressure normally makes it worse, plus it makes the motor run DUMB , and  delays the  motor cycling.
You should have no problem with the run length of the 6 ounce tank

In a legacy w/magnum 52 I use a 6oz. clunk tank with no pressure in her I can get a full pattern plus 10 laps or so on 5 oz.
