Revo 24 for a beginner?

Recommended Posts

Any opinions whether a Revo 24 would be ok for a beginner weighing 70kg and using a Pap top 80 1400 with reserve? Total all up weight would be about 115kg, so in theory the 26 would be better but I can't get one in my price range. Any other wing suggestions welcome. Being an ex PPLA, I quite like the idea of a reflex.

Thanks

The Revo 24 is not rated unlike the 26 which has an EN 'C' Rating.

Because of this, and my insurance I will not teach with the 24.

Also, 70kg is a little heavy for a 24. I am 72kg and fly the 26 when on a Revo and its fast enough for me thanks.

You will find take offs and landings hard if you opt to buy a 24.

My advice, It's the 26 if you looking at the Revo :-)

Thanks for the info. How about the other end of the scale - an Apco Thrust HP medium (100 - 165kg) with me at 115Kg all in. So at the lower end of the weight range. I don't care about speed at the moment as long as it is safe.

If this wing is flow as a PG wing only the weight is obviously much less, so it must be safe with me+motor+reserve etc???

Thanks, Steve

LOL your not picking well

The Thrust (HP) is not recommended by APCO for new pilots.

The Thrust (non HP) though is a great wing for a new pilot.

SW :D
