I’ve just been looking Building and flying the LST 1/2A Trainer on rcuniverse (in particular D Bronk’s build).
It looks like a fabulous aircraft.
I’m relatively new to R/C modelling but keen to start – in particular with a 1/2A plane. Based on my lack of experience I’m not sure whether I should buy a kit or build the LST from the plans that I have downloaded. I feel that building the LST from plans will be a steep learning curve but far more beneficial. To help me make a decision I’d be grateful for a bit of advice.
The Jr Falcon (http://www.earlyrcmodels.com/id15.html) looks like a great kit. But do you reckon this plane (assuming one added ailerons etc) is as good as the LST?
And would it be easy to add ailerons?
You recommend a .074 engine for the LST – is the plan/design scalable as I would like to use my existing Cox .049 (with an R/C throttle)?
I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best
