Looking for a slow flyer

I have a Super Tiger .45 that I want to use with a relatively slow flying plane. I have about a year's experience of flying, but I'm just into speed. I like leisurely flying. Any suggestions?

Hi Don,

My favorite slow-flying fun plane is a World Models Super Frontier Senior. It's BIG, easy to fly, relaxing and fun. I've mounted a small 35mm camera on it at times. It will easily carry any kind of reasonable load you want. I fly it with DuBro Sno-Bird skis in place of the wheels in the winter.

Another favorite is the popular Cub. They can fly slow and easy but are also capable of traditional aerobatics. My 72" Cub also happens to be a World Models ARF. I never was too enthused about Cubs. I got a great deal on the Cub ARF so I bought it. I soon found out why the Cub is so popular. I'll never be without a Cub model.

My next slow-flying plane will be a Bud Nosen 1/4-scale Citabria. It's my winter project.

Good flying, desmobob

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking, but that never stopped me from commenting before.

There is always the Senior Kadet , if you want to go slow. A largish biplane for a .45 would also do the trick, but none come to mind (your problem too, I suppose).

Come to think of it, Lanier/Goldberg is selling a reissue of the Senior Falcon of many years ago. It is an ARF and is priced under $200, IIRC. That should be enough to load down your Tigre so that it is not a speed demon.

How about a big Cub? Lots of ARFS out there and some of them have really large wingspans. That should be relaxed flying.

How bout Slow Poke. It will fly nice and slow when ya want and still has the control surfaces to do barstorming type aerobatics if you feel inclined to band the sticks a little. 129 bucks from Great planes. Easy to assemble arf.

Sig Kadet Senior. Nice slow-flying plane. Sig 4*40. More aerobatic but still a slower flying plane.

I'll be damned. I read that at almost the same rate as properly spelled words.

Amazing, isn't it? I got half way through it before I started to notice the misspelled words. =:-0
