I got this white Box

I probably will not be able to start on anything on till Monday, but If I get started, I will keep you guys posted. It's all Brent's fault, this one might be on sale right after the first couple of flights, I like his paint job better and might get a second one in all primer or Grey, whatever they come in, OR I just might sand this one down.

Everyone has their own way of building, and the first thing I will tell you is I DO NOT like the way the rudder servo is installed. This would be great if the Vertical stab was removable, BUT since it's not, I don't like the servo arrangement. You can always cut an access hatch for the servo, but I think it should be done when you build the plane. Just like the others, the control horns are glued in, this is great but they have also drilled out the holes for the control horns too big. @Robert, I would vote for them to drill the holes a lot smaller even if the builder has to make them bigger to suit his/her building and control arms.

YES, this one still has the original stab and that was the deal I made, I just wanted to get one in my hands, even if it meant having the original horizontal stab. HET / EJF is not shipping any planes until the modifications are finalized.

Your Sniper doesn't have the same colors as mine, did you get it on the black market. I swear, yours looks Pink, but I am mostly color blind. Well, my wife says it"s Grey, but it sure looks like a funny type of Grey. let's call it Transvestite Grey matching the lady that I saw in the supermarket in Lake Havasu..

Hey Ralph, there is absolutely nothing on this plane that fits right or is designed right, but it"s cheap.

Lets keep this thread up and beat the dead horse.

Well, mine is just about finished. It took more work than planned. Lots of little things like blind nuts coming loose on the wing bolts, shortening the thrust tube, the elevator servo gets in the way.

By the way, I put the Turnigy 120A dlux inside the thrust tube and ran it up, the setup blows crazy strong and sounds perfect.

HET 700-68-1500

I guess Tam isn't in a hurry to get his in the air. "CHICKEN" pluck pluck pluck

Ralph, if yours is Grey, I like it, if it's Pink, you better fly it when nobody is around. LOL

OK, so now I started mine, You have to finish cutting the formers out of the flat sheet, and before you start to try to glue anything CLEAN the fuselage and parts. if you look at the pictures of the inside of my fuselage, it is very dirty, I mark where the formers will go and sand with 80grit sandpaper and clean. Either use epoxy or in my case, Tack glue parts in place with CA and then apply your favorite glue, Do not try to pull the fuselage/body to match the formers, I am using aeropoxy to fill in the rest.

More parts

I first test fit the HET Fan, to see what AL was talking about. You should Tack the parts in plane and test fit, I found out that the mounts are made perfectly for the 9305V2 Fan, but if your intakes are place either too high or too low, it will be at an angle. For my JETFAN 90, it was fine, since my tabs for the fan are made so that I glue them in where I want to. What you want to do is fit the Fan on the intake first and then make sure your thrust tube will be straight.

The wemo housing should also drop straight in too, both het and wemo housings. Jetfan and my housings are good for composites as you can install the housing into the duct, tape it in place then fix the brackets to the exact spot you want.

What are you guys doing about the rounded intake divider? Are you extending it to merge at center? Seems all the HET's have this flaw also...

I ended up installing the HET fan exactly as was mentioned, slid the fan in the duct, taped it centered, made up the rails, glued the rails to the front former, screwed the fan to the rails, then sanded and cut the rear former to provide the support for the rails, removed the fan, and glued everything with Hysol.

Making up the thrust tube was the next problem, the rear former has to sanded down quite a bit in order for the thrust tube to be attached to the fan.

I am sure you will see this in Ralph's pictures.

Vacation?

What are the dates of your vacation?

Your customers need to know when you will be gone cause nothing will get done at the shop, and nothing will be shipped.
