December 2011 Update

The B-2 Stealth Bomber is still without electric retracts all wired up...think I'll just bungee launch it and see if it flies!

The Shark jet is flying great and now has 4S setup with HK Red Brick 50 opto ESC with HK 5 amp UBEC. The video below is with 3S setup and it ran fine with that but now it takes off in 10 feet vs. 35 feet. It has HobbyPartz 4800kv for 4S.

I have P-38 kit that is still in the box...lots of wiring to tackle.

FMS P-47 Tarheel Hal, FMS P-51 Blue Nose, Maxjet F-117a Nighthawk, Art-Tech Spitfire, Dynam A-10, FMS Flying Shark, and ParkZone T28 all still flying formation.

Nice!

I got the Shark kit, was wondering how you wired this thing up? Did you have to make wires for the ESC? I'm wondering how this will go together. Love the teeth on yours.

It was a head-scratcher to wire this thing up since instructions aren't much help. I just got some wire from the local hobby shop (could have gotten it from the hardware store cheaper) and soldered connectors on 'em to lengthen the motor wires into the main cabin. You can see from the picture below how I ran them up into the fuselage behind the motor. I put the ESC just in back of the elevator servo and the RX on one side next to the battery.

Also putting wires from ailerons into main fuselage: I just made my own holes into the wing root pretty much in line to where the wire lies in the channel and ran them in. I found a little hole that was already there later
I used 6" servo wire extenders to go through the fuselage and had to scratch out a place in the servo wire channel for it to fit.

aha....interesting. I'll give that a try then. Was going to repaint this too, so that minwax is a great idea too. Thanks! Video is great too, looks like it flies very well. I'm going to go with a 4S set up from Dons.
