Thanks for the prompt replies.

Inkys ornithopter was simple to edit for RF6 and flies well.

The RoBird-V2 on the other hand is beyond my ability. The model looks great but it flies down and glides up. I can edit it to glide level but have no idea how to get it to fly level under power. Could anyone who understands the physics of this have a go at editing it for RF6?

I'm looking forward to those models when KE gets RF 6 finished. The Carbon-Z Scimitar is a little different than those models though. The motor pivots with the rudders to vector the thrust and comes with landing gears, retracts as an option. Should be an interesting project for someone. No one could accuse those boys over at Horizon of sitting on their hands. I haven't seen a clear shot of the inner workings of that motor pivot yet but one of the guys at the field just got one so I'll be seeing one in person soon. He's a pretty good pilot so it will be interesting to see what new tricks he invents with this plane. I'd be willing to wager a little chicken with Jeff on this being the next release for Phoenix.

Carbon-Z Scimitar

I am really watching the swap pages for someone to release a Carbon-Z Scimitar. I'd be happy if the first try didn't have the thrust vectoring as I hear it is complicated. I was there the day that our local hobby shop owner flew his. Pretty impressive and fast.

Wonder if Phoenix will release a version? We do know they are working on a major release - no idea yet when they will publish it.

Anybody working on the Carbon-Z Scimitar?

I'm not. I have no idea what it is.

I'm sure if a modeler picked up your request, they would let you know.

You can set the retracts up on pods.

Heh. I guess I could've scrolled up 2 posts to see where he requested it a few days ago. He put a small pic there. Maybe he's going to request it until someone agrees to do it?

I wouldn't kill you to be generous. That is, unless you are only making planes for two people.

I make what interests me, flex. I'm pretty sure I've taken requests from more than two people.

Truth is that I was really commenting on post #79 that td9Cowboy made about Phoenix and the Horizon guys.

Sorry Jeff - I wasn' trying to be pushy ... Just curious. I guess what you are telling me is that one request is sufficient - if someone is interested in building the model they will post that interest - if not - they won't. Please excuse the enthusiasm - I am so totally new to this - and am only beginning to grasp the level of complexity and skill needed to build a RF model.

Jim

No problem. If you post a request in the Request thread in any of the subforums, the people who model will notice it. Right now there are about 4 active modelers. None of us have to model for RF, but I think it's safe to say we love doing it. When I'm short on idea, I will go to the Request thread, typically the latest version (now RF6). I'll scour it for something that interests me. If there's no pictures, I won't bite. I need reference material. 3-views and model specs, preferrably. I'm no artist. I'm a tracer. I can't make a model off a thumbnail shot like the one flex posted.

Here is a collection of photos of this ugly beast. I love ugly aircraft.

This seems like the perfect plane for you Jeff.

I have that plane on my hard drive somewhere. I don't remember who made it and it does have some flaws. (Front landing gear).
