New Telemaster in Progress

Postby mBagley » Sun Mar 11, 2012 8:54 pm

I have already started on building the Telemaster kit I won at the 2010 Banquet. This is the 80" version.

At the WRAM show I bought a OS 95 FourStroke. Yes it is a bit more motor than I wanted, but hey it will fit right in with all my other overpowered planes. I also picked up 6 Hi-Tech servos for it.

I have the Wings setup for Flaps and Ailerons.

I will post more update and some pics as building proceeds.

The 80" Telemaster is just about ready to Cover.

Will have Flaps and use OS 95 FS. ( yes that is a lot of power for it)

Well I am a bit tardy in posting the update for completing the Telemaster. So I have a couple of shots of the plane covered and ready for flight. In fact, at the time of these pictures, the plane has 30+ flights on it.

Some of the particulars are :
motor is OS FSV 95 Four Stroke with 14 oz. tank
covered in Monkote
uses 7 hitech servos with transmitter mixing of Ailerons and flaps.

The plane is a bit heavy due to the solid type construction of the fuse and most of the wing. Fortunaly it still has lots of lift with that big wing. The new OS 95 is a very nice motor. Clearly more than enough power for this application, but hey, it is still fun to go vertical with a Telemaster. Great Idle and power pickup after idling. Also a dream during break-in. I have the transmitter flight timer set for 12 mins and still have 2 mins to spare.

Love to make multiple slow approaches with the flaps . I have not done any mixing programing on the flaps and the throttle or elevator, just have them on a 2 position switch for off-low-full settings. Full Flaps will make some nice slow approaches.

Plane will fly fairly fast at full throttle and is capable of inverted flight with all that power. Overall it is a nice relaxing plane to fly.
