I got one and spun her up using a vapor brick also reversing the prop so the thrust is outward from the motor. I did noticed it got hot after about 4min. Is that normal? Is there enough thrust to actually make the jet fly with that little prop? I hope so.I think you're on a good idea and love it. I was also thinking of using some 1mm foam to make the fuse whole,think that would add too much weight? Maybe putting a next size up motor with a 2" prop would help that out.
Why did you reverse the prop? It is spinning the correct way as it is stock.

Of course it flies! Do you really think they'd sell a product and recommend a prop that doesn't work?

The mCPX motor does NOT need to be cut out of the boom, unless you have no need for it. PRESS it out of the boom. The wires will need to be cut to get the motor out but there is no need to break the boom unless you're trashing it.

Do these snap together, and then you need to glue them?

They are tabbed. Horizontal fuse and wing are one piece. Top fuse is one, bottom fuse is one. Glue up edges and line up tabs, press in, align it for 90*, then let it dry.

Make sure your building surface is flat as can be, and besides having something to keep it square while drying, make sure it's heavy enough to keep the foam flat and the fuselage pieces flush without gaps.

Bert,

Have you tried these with ailerons? I believe there is enough room to install 1.5g linear servo #SPMA2000 or the like? Perhaps too much wing loading?

I was thinking about that the other day. A small linear on the fuse with some clever bell crank linkages could achieve this. Something like the GP F-86 has. Overall weight may be the problem.

My MD-11 is toast. I may rebuild it and get it flying so I can test some ailerons.

Thanks, Thanks and not yet. I have shown it to a few people here to mull over some ideas. After the SST we are going to make a push on the retract project.

I used some medium CA. I started to use Beacon Foam-Tac but it's too gooey for that thin depron.
