Maiden flight

Try to fly with the first engine setup which I've got from an old Modster GeeBee (1400mm) :

Jumbo-Acro-Magnum Erstflug 05.05.2014 (0 min 56 sec)


I try only one flight this day because the engine thrust was too low. All the flight more than 90 % throttle! And I lose the cockpit after 40 seconds of flight. So I search for it a while.

Tuning and find the right colors...

Because the first engine was not powerful enough. (Not enough power for having real fun with the plane.) I bought a new NTM propdrive 50-50 and a redbrick 100 BEC speed controller. A 16x10 prop and some covering film.

TIP: Before glueing the film with an hot iron (grade 1) I prime the EPP with a mix of 1 part UHU-POR (contact adhesive) and up to three parts benzine. Let it dry and than iron the covering film on this places. To prevent distortion please use this primer mix every time on both sides of the EPP! Otherwise you get some nice waves!

The J.A.M is second time ready for maiden now.

Hope you enjoy my short discription.
