No fences on the T-45 completely different wing.

Wow, I wonder why the different wings? Upgrades maybe? Which is the later version?

It's a navy plane thing. The F35 has a different wing for the carrier version than the other two versions. I bet it's bigger than the wing on the regular BAE plane.

The Navy version uses leading edge slats without the fences...Since we can't simulate the wing on the real T-45, we put the fences on our model T-45 for more low speed stability as per the Hawk...Take a look at these pics in the link...

Kevin,
Please look at my post 1737. I chose a tapered block 11/16 at back and 3/4 at the fornt.
I will also use pull-pull not the steering arm. Have to cut away to much.

I went with your templates Kevin, I was simply curious at the different configs. Some with VG's and some with fences.

I'm using larger wheels than the stock RC Landers...Mine stick out of the bottom of the plane a small amount...Since I'm not using gear doors it didn't matter to me that the tires are a little exposed...Tilting the mounting block will get the wheels up inside of the plane but the strut will have a forward angle (rake) when in the down position..How about shimming the gear up in the fuselage a little more to get the wheels tucked away...This will effectively make the nose strut shorter but you could always mount the strut a little further down the retract pin...For an absolutely trouble free nose gear assembly that won't need modifications---RC Lander needs to re-design the nose gear for 100-105 degree retraction...

Thx Kevin,
I went with a slight forward rake (about 10 degrees)and pull-pull . If its a problem I will just have to change it later.

Thanks for the template Kevin. Sorry if I missed it but what material did you use to make the fences?

I have ordered the HK Hawk and hopefully will have it by March

I did the live chat with HK CS and they said at least 3 or 4 more weeks

Wassup Ed! I ordered the HK Hawk the end of November. They said I probably won't have it till mid February. Nice, huh?

Good idea! I was thinking about using some poly ply - BVM sells different thicknesses. Could easily cut it to size, prime and paint it then CA it to the wing surface

CN,
Did you use the reflex all the time or just with flaps? What happened to yours?
