Now easytiger has t-33!!!!!

THREAD HEADER NAME CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Black Horse option fell through due to too high shipping cost from Europe.
As of yesterday morning, Sept 18, Easytiger Models notified me of their new offering and it is on its way to me today sept 19!!!!
Follow along for the unboxing and detail pics once i get it.


I managed to find a place that listed these in stock and able to ship to the US. Found it at Hobbyfly.com and also at Hobbyfly.de which are the same shops but the .de is in Germany and the other in Denmark I believe.
Once I get it here I will post for all to see and eval this offering from Black Horse Models. I was able to see first hand the BD-5 and L-39 at the E-Jets meet this past weekend in Columbus OH. The L-39 is very nice and Carl Rich has posted in the E-Jets thread some pics and Bob B. posted a video.

My plan is to finish out the Sky Jet as a CT-33 by getting decals to match the actual AETI Canadian scheme. Callie graphics or make my own, still working on that.
Power choice will be a 90mm Wemo Evo on 8s using a Het 650. Still need to pick the motor and may get it from Gary at Efflux.

More to come once it arrives

Got Callie to make the graphics for the AETE CT-133. Looking forward to getting this and going to use 10s with a YEP 120a esc.

I know and as of yet the only ones I know of are the ones from the Black Horse website. I plan to take plenty as I unbox and assemble.
My order still in pending status with vendor and payment in pending also. Will update once I get shipping notice.
If its like the L39 that carl had at EJets, it should be very good. Need to pick retracts and a good 10s fan. JetFan 90 or a WM EVO on HET motor.

FYI
Hobbyfly.com has dropped the ball on getting the plane to the US. After requesting additional shipping funds and my prompt reply, they have allowed the pending charge to be released from my charge card. It took them a week to even send an email requesting the shipping funds and indicating the plane would be shipped NEXT DAY and as of today the order is still pending with no idea on what the hold up may be.
IF THEY follow up and supply shipping info I will post here but will look else where for some place that can supply better shipping and follow through.

Sam:

What did the plane cost? I went to the site you posted above and could not make any sense of the cost info. Is it in Chinese "currency"? If in Yuan, it looks like about $570

Carl Rich had purchased his BD-5 and the L-39 from this place, turbines-rc.com but as of this evening here is their reply on trying to get the Sky Jet.

Dear Sam,

We currently don’t have solution for shipment. Cost is far too high at the moment due to the box size.

I will let you know when it will be sorted.

Thank you.

New T33 EDF offering from Easytiger

Since mostly everyone that runs a shop or is associated with EDF and Turbines is at Jet Power this week, i have been slow on getting replies to shipping request on the BH Sky Jet.
Now to add to the pot, Easytiger Models has offered up something that i believe may be more practical and easier to get. It was just added to the site this week becauase i was there earlier this week and it was not listed.
Hows this for a nice fiberglass, builtup wing rendition of the T-33!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK did quick seach and found postings from Feb of 13' so not all that new but it is the first i have seen or heard of it. Little bigger than the BH and better scale fuse outline also!!!

Curtis (Easytiger Models) is emailing me and i just sent PP so it will be shipped out tomorrow!! $351 total.
Much much better than trying to get the BH from Europe.
Stay tuned for updates once i receive it.

Callie did the additional graphics to match the CT133 AETE scheme that the Sky Jet copied so i will be applying this scheme to the ETM T-33 and using RCLander retracts that fit thier T-33.

He said that the plane was prototyped last year and several made for testing and evaluation. Only until recently did production ramp up to offer on the market but they are sticking to a limited run.

Question? When buying a scale kit, does anyone ever check actual production model for L and WS , and see how it matches??

Lockheed T-33
Length: 37 ft 9 in (11.49 m)
Wingspan: 38 ft 10.5 in (11.86 m)

L / WS ratio is 1,029--,

RC-L is 1.076
ET is 1.156
BH is 1.057

Just shows you how close or not they came to scale --only based on L and WS.

Actually i compared each ws and length and converted to a scale of the original. Scale to me is still determined primarily by wing span that i know of. I worked my Wowplanes A10 this way to correct those two dimensions. When i did this with the BH Sky Jet, the length fell way short by nearly 9" to the wingspan ratio.
The scale of the ETM falls to a WS scale of 1/8.65 and a length scale of 1/8.21 being closer in relative ratio than the BH Sky Jet.
The RCLander scale has the same difference as the ETM being ws 1/7.9 and lngth of 1/7.5, a basic 4/10's difference. No Scale Masters subject but a more "closely proportionally correct model"!!
