The komet (Jetpower 2012) some posts above is build from Peter Maissinger.
He lives in czech and owns a flying field. And he builds fine models, Focke Wulf Flitzer, Heinkel Salamander and the Komet.
I like flying komets, they are fantastic flying models.
Here is a short and bad coloured video of the 2nd flight of my komet.
The wingspan is about 52inch.

Hi all, very nice
Pascal, no just a very thorough cleaning of everything (fuse, polyester film on wings) with alcohol to take off any grease, fingeprints, dust etc.
I did not try anything stronger (like acetone) as I suspect it will ruin the finish. And no, no sanding of any type.
Do note one thing: I did not remove the original markings on the wing !! I just painted the stripes/camo around them, and later added a clearcoat on top.
I suspect pulling the original markings of the wing is probably not a great idea ...

thank you for the "How to"
I will do the same for the original marking on the wings...I removed the one on the tail and a mark is still remaining !
No matter, I will paint the fuse with a different scheme

Wow guys thanks for the info I now know what I want from Christmas.
Can you please give us a run down of what equipment your running.
Motor, Lipo, ESC, and servos.
|Dec 05, 2012, 08:38 AM|
100 Amp ESC, (150 Amp burst in 10 sek)
4000 or 5000 Mha 4 cell 40 c battery.
Sometime I use 2x 4000 Mha in paralel for real long flights.
Not much different in flying because of the extra weight.
and 8x8 prop.
Tryed 6 cell and 6,5x6,5 and 7x7, but then it sound like it go berserk.
So 4 cell and 8x8 is my normal set up.

is it fast or very fast with your setup ?
Because I bought this motor for my Komet
...but the problem is that I don't really want to put a big prop on the nose I want to hear it screaming !!!!
Do you have a video of your Komet ?
|Dec 05, 2012, 03:31 PM|
Its pretty fast. :, my motor is going 3x the rpm as yours.
Kv is the rpm Pr volt. 580 yours and 1900.for mine.
on 6 cell
on 4 cell

It's incredible ! I love it !
Do you use the original landing gear ?
And what kind of motor mount do you use ?

Got one for Christmas. Was a little nervous that it would be twitchy but after TO and the initial trim, went back to high rates (+/- 1" on ailerons, 3/4 up/dn elevator) and it was still tame. Had CG at the 6.25" mark and needed a bit of up after TO but seemed good in fight so might increase the reflex another 1/16th.
Used a 5045-500 on 6s and seemed OK but not overly fast. Will try different props next outing and a lighter battery then maybe put in the SK3 1900kv I have sitting around to speed things up a bit.
Looked great inflight although it was solid overcast and 46º so didn't spend much time admiring it.
Anyway, good to be part of the "club"
