Ed, isn't eurcoupe one of the only two aircraft ruled by the FAA as 'unstallable?'

Dag, great pics of another of your great models (Emmaselle) what is covered with? Did you do a build thread on her someplace? I would love to be able to see more about her. I know that early jets had the same low power output/throttle lag that early recips did and that pilots of those aircraft had to relearn old techniques to deal with them (witness top USAF ace Dick Bong who died in an early jet).

Well, crap........ guess I would need 2 RX's and 2 sets of RX batteries out there.....

I guess I need to be deciding soon if it will be a one TX plane or two.

Thanks, DAG

Not necessarily, if all you have in the wings that will run off the second TX are the Jet pods, or even some nav lights, you can run the receiver bound to the second TX off the internal BEC on one of your Jet Pod ESC's. Assuming you are running an ICE or ICE Light 50/75 you will not have any issues with your Jet Pod flight packs being 4S as the ESCs have an internal switching BEC.

Did I miss them or were bomb doors and bomb release also missing from the new radio list?

These are going to be on TX2 in the fuse.

DAG is playing with the option of each wing panel being 100% self contained and thus only requiring mechanical fastening when assembling the plane, no systems interconnect. This would mean 2-3 receivers in each wing panel and a corresponding power distribution and redundancy design.

Dag - I think he is right.
FWIW I built a twin CAP 232 from 1.5 Stevens Aero kits. It looks like an F-82. I had one receiver in one fuse and extensions running all over. The rudder and elevator servos are in the tail. At SEFF I got the idea (on my own) to buy a second receiver and put it in the other fuse. That night I rewired it at the hotel. The next day early in the morning and though it was windy I maidened it. Works great. To assemble I just have to hook up the ailerons.

I was reading the Emmaselle build thread, this should make you chuckle. Ah just blame it on inflation:
