Gregg,
2006 Kv. Looks like fun, eh?

Herb,
Only ~200W per lb.?! Are you going to hand launch it or just let it fly out of your hand?

Herb, I have the same plane and am about to start work on it. But I bought Jepe's 2.5 turn brushless motor. And I plan to use 16 zapped CP 1700's to test fly and my Kontroniks 3-SL-70-6-18 esc. I wont get 200 watts per pound but I will have a pretty healthy power to weight ratio. What are you going to do for decals to finish the Tbird scheme, Herb. I have been looking for them to fit my plane. And guys I will bungee launch my plane. Herb did you get the one piece rotor for the fan. It looks like you got the composite wings. But my fan sits back farther due to the new intake to allow more cells up front and still be able to CG the plane correctly. Jepe also told me that the new intake is more scale and effecient? Yours looks very sharp. What type of paint did you use?
Thanks Joe

S'not a problem.

I'm jealous. I'm only getting ~190W/lb. on my Su-27 at take-off!

gear

Are you guys sure there is no room for a set of 1/2a retracs in the jepe 16?? I have to see one up close some day. I have the jepe A-4 coming and that will have gear, different animal though.

Herb, your Jet looks awesome. Can you please tell me where you got the Thunderbirds decals from? I have been looking for a set and so have had no luck I would appreciate it if you could help me out. Also can you tell me what paint you used?
Thanks Joe


Vin, I am pretty sure that there is no room for a set of Mini Spring airs or I would have installed them. The fan and liner are in the way. Its pretty tight in there. Sorry.
Joe
