I'm building a Red HPAT and plan on putting a Wren 44 but might drop in my T100 on 10s if Wren can't get me a turbine soon. Evidently there isn't a Wren 44 Kero start available until late January.

So are you suppose to cut the hinges or just work them in. My BVM Electra is sort of hinged like the Viper....I don't know what to do

Don't cut them!!!! There live hinges... All you have to do is use a NOT to sharp knife and heat it up so you can just cut through the paint and then just work them in a bit and your good to go If not you can chip up the paint

Ricky,

Use a Dremel diamond cutting wheel to sand the hinge line by hand until you can work it free. Here is a link to the cutting wheel.

Send me an email at e.edgar@att.net and I'll send you a picture. I can't figure out how to post a picture from my iPad.

JT Viperjet Video

Here is my setup.

Jetfan 90 impellor in a Tamjets 90 Shroud
Neu 1515 3d
CC 110 HV esc
10s Nanotech 5000mah 45-90 lipos
1100 Life Rx pack
Futaba Fasst 14 ch Rx
HS-5085 on Ailerons and Elevator
Tower TS-115 on Rudder
HS-125 on Flaps
HS-85 MG on Nosegear steering.
EFlite 60-120 Retracts with Tamjets Struts, no brakes.
11 lbs 4 oz. AUW with batteries.

Flies very smooth. Still dialing in landing flaps, relex, etc. for landings.

Looks really good in the air...and standing still.
