The 1521 1.5y has been flying in my DS75 Tazor for some time on 10s and is excellent.

End of the day people want to see what more power will do, so we will find out?

Dont know what outlet size Daniel used on his tests, I just know the one I used.
Our first nozzel has a 90mm exhaust, and can be easily tweeked down or up a little. We'll see how she turns out!

Fuselage Continues...

The Charger is progressing nicely. You can now see the balsa that was crossed grain has been bent into the intake.

Lots of fuselage pitcures!!!

It's starting to look like a jet!

The fuselage is really coming along nicely! I looked it over very closely and could not find a flaw anywhere. It's straight, true, strong, and very cool looking! This is not uncommon for one of Phil's airplanes, but what is uncommon is how light he's managed to make it! I'm just so proud!

Here you can see Phil's incredible balsa workmanship. The nose is perfectly semetrical, and the curves are very pleasing to the eye. Notice the concave area around the exhaust cone. The nose gear well is now clearly visible. It will have a single door, hinged on one sides, and simply actuated by the nose gear actuator.

All that's left is some final framing of the ailerons and flaps, then we can start the finish work. Slime Green has proven to be hard to get, and the code is even hard to find, so we've switched to '05 and newer Kawasaki Green.

Couple new phots

Prgoress on the Charger has slowed, but for a very good reason. Dad has been busy working! Ya, actual paid work as an electrical contractor. I very pleased that he has found work in this economy. His spirits are up, he's got a little extra cash, and it's good for his health. He's still working on the jet on the weekends. Here's a couple photos of the progress. I'm headed out to his house today, there I'll get a few more new photos.

Power system and a little golf!

The framing is and complete, and the Charger is being finished as you read this. Sanding, doping, filling, doping, silkspanning, doping, sanding, doping, filling, doping, sanding, doping. Did I mention doping and sanding?

Here are a few photos of the power system. The motor is huge! So big that I will have to locate the CC-110HV in the fuselage, due to a lack of space in the motor cone.

And finally a little golf with the wife and friends. This photo was taken last weekend before the first snow of the season hit earlier this week. Fore!

Pushrod Question

What size of pushrods are most of you using on 100mm to 120mm jets? Is 2-56 good enough, or should I go with 4-40?

Sorry for the lack of progress reports. Not a lot of visual progress to show. The entire aircraft it covered in Silk Span and is about two coats of primer away from being painted. Will post pics in a couple weeks of the ready to fly Charger.
