| Wonder if any of you builders have had experience with the Dynaflite
| Butterfly , I flew Sport RC from 1984 -1994 and then left RC , still have
| radio gear for 6m and 72 , was thinking of getting back into the hobby and
| would like something slow and also maybe Electric , a guy used to fly a
| Butterfly at my club years ago , I think he tried to fly it too fast and the
| wings would buzz at a certain speed , just wondering how much problem the
| Electric mod. would be and any other comments would be appreciated .
I have one. It's a pretty decent plane. Mine has a 0.20 engine in
I'm hard pressed to think of how you could fly it fast enough to make
it buzz :)
It has a very low wing loading (for a powered plane) and so it would
be pretty easy to convert to electric.
I've gotten into gliders much more than when I first got the
Butterfly, so if I were to go back and fly it more, I'd probably add
some spoilers somehow (for a glow plane, it's hard to bring down) and
remove the landing gear just to make it stay up longer.
