The Ryan STA is an icon of the golden age of aviation, quickly replacing the attractive but under-powered Ryan ST (Sports Trainer), the STA (Sport Trainer Aerobatic) won the 1937 International Aerobatic Championship, leading to immediate interest from the US military, if you are lucky, you can still see one of these fantastic looking aircraft doing the air show circuits.
On the other hand, you could own and fly your own! We loved the Ryan STA Plug n Fly so much when testing that it became a firm favorite with all the team. Made from tough EPO, we have really put this model through its paces and it is still going strong! Scale detail is impressive for a foam model, the huge wheel pants, rigging wire, panel lines and wing struts give an impression of a much larger model, both in the air and on the ground.
There is plenty of power from the pre-fitted motor for classic aerobatics like stall turns & barrel rolls, yet the generous STA wing area makes for a superbly balanced model that is just as happy flying at scale speed. Likewise, the pre-fitted servo/control surface combination is perfect, the result is one of the smoothest EPO models you are ever likely to fly.
Sorry, but i nearly fell asleep watching this video. It was far too long, 7 minutes and consisted mainly of the plane flying in a circle. The use of a wide angle lens was not helpful, as the plane receded to a speck at the widest point of the circle. An ROG take off and a view of the landing would be useful. Please try again with a shorter video, showing a proper take off and landing.
Just so as everyone knows, i found it useful to clip the very ends of each strut wire off, and re-bend into another hook, there-by shortening each rod by just a few mm. Now they are less likely to come off during flight, but are not soo short as to cause stress from being too tight. Hopefully this is helpful.
ola fiz uma compra com cartã*o de credito e deu tudo certo
so que nã*o to entendendo muito bem

Abbreviated Translation = "How long is the shipping time?"
In my experience it has varied from about 2 to 4 weeks, unless it is very close to christmas time, in which it might take a bit longer.
It also depends on which shipping option you choose. I have always chosen the cheapest option, and still received my items in 2-4 weeks, I live in Western Canada.
It may also depend on your location, as you are speaking Portuguese, you may be living in a Country with longer shipping times *-)
Due to recent changes in Air Transport safety, we cannot ship orders from Hong Kong containing a box length of more than 1 meter with Lithium batteries of more than 1,000mAh Look what it says when i try to order this plane and battery pack!!!!! Please kindly order your batteries and large planes separately. Orders from our regional warehouses (DE,US,AU,UK) are not affected by this restriction. What do i do???????
Manual says CG 4 cm from leading edge but no way you can get that even you put bigger battery, I won't fly till I find out to put CG right ( I might need to add more weight on the nose )
Any suggestion pilots????
Hay you Guys! Our friends in the USA are having a problem and would like some help. PLEASE. John there ask???????????????????????????????????
Is the Topfire 30A ESC programable?
When I plug in the lipo it plays the tones & then the motor starts turning at a low RPM.
What's the CG? I have same plane, different colors (from Nitro). The manual does not mention CG, but I've read that it's 40mm behind LE of wing. Even with battery ALL the way forward, I can't get that. I can't even get 50mm. I'll try larger battery but fuse compartment is very tight for space and battery area almost inaccessible. (You have to use a stick to shove battery forward.) Locking battery in place will be hard.
Bench test power 16 amps at 12v. Very "cute," I hope it flies OK.
For planes with like this with tough battery compartments, sometimes instead of velcro, i just take an old push rod, and cut it to the width of the fuselage where the battery sits. You can stick it through the foam right behind the battery so that it blocks the battery from sliding into the tail section. As long as you use the same whole each time, instead of punching new holes in the foam each time! With this method i've never had a battery inch it's way back into the tail section, causing unexpected hard to control tail=heavy conditions!
Reality check. A pretty plane for the price and EPO.....The molded blue windscreen and absence of pilot is remarkable on a plane that apears to be super detailed (rigging etc)in other areas. I will want to know how the motor is mounted and accesed before counting the rivets. got my fingers burnt before, all that glitters....
the cowl is held by magnets im thinking or there are screws and we cant see them ,the windscreen is easyly cut off if you want to do so and replaced by a pice of plastic if you elect to do also,i dont think it be hard just need right colour paint (water base),i dont see a problem (sanding A BIT and THAN PAINT) it may be worth the time ,its a very niceplane, as for the rivites there are 43,746 holding this plane togather as it was built on the real one.
The full size one had a painted windscreen because they forgot to mask it up before spraying ( see Watsonian video). Also pilot has droped his sandwiches and can't be seen as he is bent over picking them up. Windscreen and pilot not important as this is actualy remote controled model.
Just received mine. Put it together in one evening while watching TV. Springs & wires were interesting to put on but went OK. Have removed the dinky little seat which is nowhere near scale & will replace with appropriate pilot bust.The cowl is a press fit, just remove the prop & backplate and slide off.
Or they had plans of the actual plane and a plan of where the real rivets go? Every company is bound to do the same plane at some point and have similar things. Look at the Mustang? probably the most over produced RC plane ever
I will use this example, Everyones fingerprints are different. The size and type of the rivets, exhaust holes, battery hatch, fuel ***p and strut ***ps are identical. I will buy one, to make a side by side comparison. If they are different, I will make a public apology.
its a 3128 not 3182 but its not big differance i would go lager also , i like good power on electric planes . ths is a great loking plane, place the GEE BEE Y AND THIS TOGETHER AND ITS A BEUTIFUL SIGHT.
its my first time trying out a plane, easy enough for a complete beginner, but I have not flown it yet. the setup was pretty fast

Very beautiful model aircraft and upgraded scaile items but flying really bad and not relaxed, you have to fly it fast and not in the wind, a little wind blowing it out of control

Good airplane for intermediate skilled flyers. A little heavy, but adding the flaps is easy and provides really good low speed characteristics. I leave them down most of the time. Performs well during all basic aerobatics Plenty of power with the stock motor. This is a tough little bird, mine having survived a midair with a much heavier aircraft with only minor damage. Ground handling is good but can be tippy in a crosswind. I removed the heavy nose weight and relocated the esc under the cowl, just behind the firewall, and moved the battery all the way forward for balance. Nice plane!
