The PICO JET is BACK
Local Auction site I was Browsing and what pop's up a Multiplex PicoJet the Combat version. In eplor blue.
Power system Motor is a Scorpion SII- 2212-1850KV ESC (no name) 30 AMP on a 5 x 5 prop or there abouts. 2 x (no name) servo's. Battery be 2S either 1000,1100, 1300,1400,1600 depending on C of G requirements.
Will need to add Motor mount as Speed 400's were glued to the foam way back when.
Her empty weight in Brushed config with NMIH batteries was anywhere between 590g with 1100AAU and 652g 800AR packs. I added everything up whilst helping mate out in his Model shop this AM and only came to 203g !!!!!!!!!!!! so with a few bits and pieces might top 300g !!!!!!!
Just started painting the Canopy and whacked some Red Devil spackle in those Release canyons on the wing and the tail. Will be adding some Dayglo orange about soi I can see it while it's Aviaiting......
Some pic's of the lil dear.....

Have started the painting bit wings canopy and tail. Have added some pic's.
The dayglo orange looks really good and stands out in the sky.
ESC will be as you can see right in the air flow. Have to extend the motor wires but not a lot.
This leaves plenty of room for the Battery and RX.

Pico Jet coming along.
Have been able to get a bit more done.
The colour scheme seems to suit her......

Just work sleep work sleep work sleep.
Not as yet as life has got in the way again although at the reduced weight I suspect it ain't gonna be sluggish at all......
