  • PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF

    The PA-20 Pacer was Piper’s answer to the four-seat family airplanes offered by Cessna and Stinson who were capitalizing on the post-war general aviation boom. Eager veterans used their G.I. bill to earn pilot certificates and needed a “family car of the air” for travel that the venerable J-3 Cub used in training simply could not accommodate. The E-flite® PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF airplane replicates the full-scale Pacer for RC pilots who want an iconic scale experience great for hopping out of small fields. Not only does its outline and color scheme closely honor the original, you also get high-end interior appointments, scale looking landing gear, plus optional flaps for greater control at a wider range of speeds. Even more satisfying is the short amount of time you’ll need for this classy lady to be flight-ready.

    From the authenticity of its traditional construction to the richness of its UltraCote® finish and high-gloss fiberglass cowling, the E-flite PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF delivers a scale model with outstanding flight characteristics so that you can look like a class-act both in the air and on the ground. The recommended E-flite power system was designed around popular and economical 3S Li-Po batteries to provide great performance for scale maneuvers as well as picture perfect touch-n-gos.

    Appearance

    I bought this model from a L.H.S. simply because I like high-wing, classic airplanes. The deep red Ultracote with black trim is  beautiful, and the size (51 inch w.s.) is perfect for a not-too-big, but still impressive airplane.

    While assembling the model, I found out a few things that are not covered in the instructions, so if you're considering this airplane, take note of these pointers. 

    1) When assembling the wings, note that there are metal inserts in the wings that the 4 one-inch long allen screws thread into for the strut attachment points. DO NOT try to screw wood screws into these holes, or you'll goober the threads.
    2) DO NOT heat-shrink the Ultrcote on the wings until AFTER you've adjusted the wing strut adjusting ends. Each wing strut has threaded ends that are used to level or flatten the wings after they are attached to the fuselage. Do this by making the bottom of the wing root (where it meets the fuselage) level by propping up the tail of the plane. Then, check the "levelness" of the wing toward the wing tip. If it's not the same as the wing root, screw the tips of the struts in or out to make the wing flat. A warped wing will result in a poor flying, or possibly un-flyable airplane. After you're sure the wings are adjusted correctly, get out the covering iron and take care of those wrinkles.
    3) When installing the windshield, don't bother with glue. I always use clear packing tape, cut to size, to install windshields. There's nothing worse than glue blobs on the windshield. And, with tape, you can remove it if you ever need to.
    4) When installing the landing gear, use the included locking collars on the ends of the axles, and toss those silly wood half-circle thingies in the trash.
    5) USE LOCK TITE WHEN YOU BOLT THE MOTOR TO THE FIREWALL!

    Happy flying!
