Scale JTEC 1/3 Scale Taylorcraft

  1. There is almost no comparison to the flying characteristics of the Decathlon and the T-craft. The T-craft is the most gentle and predictable airplane you will ever fly. The Decathlon is very twitchy on the ground, not so with the T-craft. Of all the airplanes I have built and flown the T-craft is my absolute favorite. It always get lots of attention when I fly it and the smoke system makes for a very nice show. The DA100 is the perfect engine, more power than you need but it balances the airplane perfectly with no additional weight needed.

    The T-craft floats like nothing else I own. For example, last year I lost a prop in mid flight. I was able to make a full circuit around the field and land smoothly dead stick.

  2. Spent some time recently refurbishing the Taylorcraft. Purchased a new cowl and added more scale-like vents. Also repaired and repainted the wheel pants.

    I love wheel pants, a plane looks naked without them unless it is a Cub. The do need rework every so often however. That's what winter is for? Nice louvers on the cowl.
