Really designed for electric and stick plastic covering, no sandpaper used at factroy Review by uncgeorge
Rating
the model is really designed for electric. The model is small so getting a OS max .46AX in the cowl was a task. The engine did not line up with the cowl nor did the paint strips on the fuse and cowl. I had to remove the nose gear mount and cut it off flush with the firewall since the pitts style muffler would not fit. The one access door finally fell off and had to be glued back in place with E-6000 glue. They only access to be able to plug in the flaps and ailerons to a Y harness if by taking off the windsheld that is held in place by magnets.
I wish they used Mono-Cote or Oracover on the model instead of the printed sticky plastic covering. It can not be repair with anything but clear packing tape.
I wish they had used sandpaper on the spars so they did not stick up and show and the balsa fibers sticking up.
The wheel they give you are way to small for a grass field. I haven't flow in yet but plan on it soon, it really is quite short coupled. I will have more review on the flight soon. (Posted on 5/30/14)
tripacer Review by bradl4648

the plane is nice but the covering used is not good you can not shrink it. It is some sort of sticky backing on it and is really wrinkly. found out don't use alcohol on it it melts. be very careful when installing stab to fuse it peeled some of the covering off. Its to bad to builds this plane and not use good covering for it! and the front wheel should have been a fork not an L shape and no front wheel pant. they didnt use bolts in the wing for the wing struts just wood screws. other than that a nice scale model that looks good!!!

My wife purchased this model for me for this years Christmas present. WOW! What a great surprise. We owned the real PA-22 and having this model will be like bringing back old times. I'm in the process of painting it the same color scheme as our original and then will assemble it. So far it looks like a very well made kit and I'll provide an update when it's finished.

Great little plane! Review by Dan F

The tri pacer was easy to assemble and included all the hardware needed to get the plane in the air. I did use dubro axial shafts on the mains rather than the bolts that were in the kit (personal preference). I used a magnum 52 4-stroke which seems to be plenty of power. I was looking for something a little different than a cub for a float plane and this really fit the bill. The covering was done well and no wrinkles! It isn't a covering I am familiar with but hey if it stays tight that is great. I like the magnetic hatch on the front, made radio install easy. Great little plane. (Posted on 10/13/13)
