If needed work the Jointer on your flat work table so that both
elevator half's are straight. Mark one side of the joiner to keep in
on the correct side. If joiner needs tweaked and it is installed
backwards elevator half's will not be in alignment. Install the
elevator joiner before stab is glued in to position.
A note on servos: This airframe is made to take standard size
servos. With exception of the elevator servo. But it is pre notched
so a standard servo can be used. We used HS 225 servos for this kit
and made the minor mods needed to assure a secure servo mount.
At this point we are 41.2 ounces. No electronics are installed.
Note: We resisted our temptation to mount our motor with
stand off's or a
type outrunner mount, even after we dropped our motor box and
took a chunk out of it. We wanted to test the stock items, so far so
good. But as you look at our photos pleas keep in mind our motor box
is intentionally made to be temporary. The Included motor box should
probably be mounted with the supplied angle balsa, at the firewall
and maybe at the outrunner mounting firewall as well. It would not
be a bad idea to glue the supplied box to the firewall. We did not
do this on our test bird as we most likely will try this model as a
glow version as well.
One other mod we did. Since the model is made for Electric or Glow
the canopy's installed using screws. We installed a
canopy latch in ours (found
Finished weight with stock components and a 9.5 ounce outrunner is
62.3 ounces (plus the battery). We will also try a lighter set up
that will put us right around 59 ounces (plus battery). At right
around 5 pounds a 1000 Watt system should make for a great
We had a ton more pictures but we seem to have lost our 2nd SD card
for the camera (yes we took that many). We will post more photos as
well as flight impressions, and flight video as time allows.
So first few flights we great it is a great flying bird. Last few
flights also were great but in a stiff wind (about 20) this baby
becomes slick and getting it down smooth is a not quite a chore but
not as un eventful as in calm wind (see video). Other then that this
one is a winner and allot of fun. This
video is a ride along looking back and down. It is also the same
flight as the video below. I should also mention she is pretty
tough. The loosely installed motor box is quite strong. I let one of
the guy at the field fly this bird and it had a not so good landing.
The result was the tops of the prop got knocked off, everything else
was 100% in good shape, even the loosely installed motor box.
