Hi, Chuck. A friend told me that the TwinStarr is a good machine. How is your appreciation of it? Are they still been sold? Used ones? What about the horizontal stab? I am from Panama. Do you speak spanish?
is a solid work horse. I modified the instr. pod and I have a lot of gadgets. with a 180hp engine I have all the power I need , the RAF blades sucks. The big ruders are too demanding. This is good but in strong cros wind I have too much area in my tails. The powder paint from the factory sucks Also the way they mount the v tails in hard landings or working on grass are not good. I designed a "flying wire" to hold the tails.
bottom line solid frame, proven aircraft engine and excess of power Is a great machine.
I was wondering if you could tell me how you like your twinstarr, I know you cant buy them any more but I am interested in building one. You comments on how they fly and any bad habits they have would be most welcome.
