Just looked up on YouTube the flying area at the show...about the size of a basketball court. Very impressive. Would love to see vids of that Saber flying. I guess Jalin reduce the weight of these 30mm down massively, else, it'll take a lot of speed to keep them airborne.

Do you have a link where to get thoses kit for 40$ only ?

Thanks

Man, I wish I had bank to bring in a container of the upcoming 30mm/40mm kits. But I'm sure between BH, Venom and Toysonics, most of the US would already be covered.

LTR,
The airframe from BH & TS come with everything except ESC, servos, lipo, TX & RX. BH website will say that you need brushless motor but that is included.

Only place I have heard of that airframe doesn't come with much is HobbyKing.

I have the T-33 and it flys great! The only down side is that I have already stripped the gears on one servo on landing. I now have the Bae Hawk now (T-45). To prevent sevo gear stripping I have installed the aileron servos with the output arm protruding through the top surface of the wing.

Ah, first report of T-33 stripping aileron servo. Is this with or w/o wing tanks? I'm planning to do my T-45 and T-33 with control arm/horn above wing. Won't look as good but will be functional.

I have the tip tanks installed. I have now put skids in front of each servo. I have moved the aileron push rod to the innermost hole on the servo arm and aileron control horn.

huntingfield,
Do you have ailerons set up as spoileron i.e. have them deflect up on landing?

If I were to go after better looks (after all, these are scale planes) then I would move the control rods to the inner most and trim the excess servo arm and control arm. Second is to do spoilerons to not only help slow down the touchdown speed (less slide) but also to have the servo arm and control arm both deflecting back to further minimize snagging and stripping.

Thats a great idea. I am going to set my spoilerons and try it out.

Thanks Mark!! It was nice seeing you again! It is always a hoot to fly with all you guys! Take care of that arm!

Regards,

Rudders on F-18

I couldn't resist...........

Next up: rudder and FLAPS on the L-39 (should go nicely with the retracts).

Would a servo-operated sliding canopy be considered "going too far"?
