Welllll, I was saving the JR921X for something bigger.

I have the 9ch orange in a Habu 32 and a L-39 with no problems. I'm running 2 satellites with it.
Now you jinxed me Vic. (or saved me ) Maybe I'll switch it out.

I usually make up my own hdwr with Dubro kwik links, but I used the stock SAPAC hdwr to save time.

Got the F-20's missle rails made today ,and primed ...maybe get some smoke generator....or missle made tonight .the smoke generators were used for airshow work at paris and england ... i think i remember seeing it fly at el toro with smoke on the wing tips. flew the whole show in a 1/4 mile box and then left the area out the top of the TCA ...pretty cool stuff back then .

Wow, you have a few parts to make yet. Stick with this one (if you can) so we can have the most complete (as possible) F-20 flying for the debut demo in Vegas.
I can make the trust tube (rolled up and complete) and ship it if you want.

it is still not as positive as i would like it to be for a frwd retacting nose gear,with 40 to 50 mph wind against it ..C/N may have to roll it on take off to get the gear up NOT. it is a map nose gear and the air cly on the sapacs is a tad bigger and has a bit more lifting strength.got some nose cones made for the smoke generators,just need to do a bit of body work and paint them. i gotta get this fan installed and running and see what we have .

tail pipe made fan in duct in .....dont like where the esc ended up ,but how much cooling do they really get ? air should come in through the nose gear door opening ,the esc is between the ducts,there might be enough leaks around the ducts to draw some air .
