Teeriffic + Nubcake = Fun

Hey

This is my first posting in the airplane world... so be gentle :-)

I am a freak when it comes to R/C Helis. I have a Trex 600, Blade CP Pro, 2 Blade CX's, 2 Walkera junk piles, and a partridge in a pear tree.

But i have yet to get into planes. Lately i have flown a trainer .40 plane, just for grins, and i have to say its some good old fashioned fun. No worries of heli crashes... just lofty flying.

So, to tell you the truth, i hate club fields. Everyone is in a click, and don't welcome new comers........ very often.

So... i want a micro to fly in my back yard, etc...

I found these Teeriffic Jets (EDF) today... and i'm pretty excited. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me where to buy a few of the items needed.

I have a CC 10, will this work in the micro mig-29?
Where to buy the JMP Servo Only reciever? BSD doesn't have it... they have a combo but the RX has an ESC i think.
Will the JMP Servo only receiver work with say... an Futaba 9chp?
Where to buy the Mighty Midget 10/3/26s? BSD doesn't have that one either.
Will the MB12/2/16TJ hopup motor they speak of, work in the micro mig?


I know thats alot of questions... and i am still researching as i post... but i would appreciate anyones help on this.

Seneka:

Regarding the TJ's:

1) IMHO, the CC 10 is heavy for the little jet, I think a lightened CC 10 could work, remove heat shrink, replace wires with thinner wires etc. The YGE 4, or a lightened CC TB 9 works great, bsdmicrorc.com has em both.

2) I think a Micro invent Minor RX would work if you don't find a JMP servo combo. bsdmicrorc.com has it too!

3) The initial TJ's used the 10/3/26S motor, but the new 13/2/16TJ has been optimized for the little jets. The 13/2/16TJ is perfect for the little jets.

Ah... Thanks Uttam.

I will lighten up my CC10 then.. it can loose a lot of weight with wires alone.. They are pretty massive. If it still comes out heavy, ill take your advice and grab a YGE 4 or TB9


The Micro invent minor may be a way to go... but i finally found a JMP RX only. Says it was designed for the p10, so since that will be what i use :-)

Thanks for the info on the motors, I will just buy the silver kit directly... the 13/2/16tj comes included. :-)

Looking closer to a done deal... only real issue now is convincing the wife to let me add another project to the pile. haha.

Are these TJ micros a pusher prop or are they EDF? Anyone forsee problems using a Plantraco 4 channel servo RX (about 1.1 grams with connectors)? Thinking of the BA 2.5 gram servos.

I wouldn't mind lightening the RX and soldering directly since I can't/won't buy the $400 mini JST crimp tool.

And if these are a prop plane, think it might work with a GWS 30mm EDF unit and brushless motor?

Thanks.

I'm a big heli person also.. I started off in this hobby right here in the micro forum.. I built a couple of Martin's planes with his help along with some other good people around here.. Then I found that helicopters were just way more fun for me. Now I've got a T-Rex 600 Nitro, T-Rex 450, etc.

Well.. I gotta say.. Once you start to think planes are cool, you never stop thinking it =] I've always had myself a plane in one form or another. Right now I've got a 40" 3D foamie "Airfoilz Edge 540" and I love it. I'm dying for someone like Mike Glass to make a tiny indoor brushless foamie 'cuz his Matrix 3D foamie is incredible.

Come on Mike. Make it happen ;]

BTW the Teerific micro planes swing a 3030 prop, so I guess they are a pusher plane.
