BVM eAggressor 2


Sorry Jack

I couldnt stand it any longer. Too many people having fun with BVM airframes...ok so mine is a little older and a little cheaper than most. I picked up my aggressor 2 just before E-Jets. It needed some paint (nose, stabs, exhaust cone) minor body work, and some assembly. Its getting closer...just need to finish painting the exhaust cone, swap out some old servos, and add the intake adapter / new intakes ?? and power system...as yet to be determined.

Anyone else out there with electric aggressors besides Chris True? Lets see some pics of you planes and power installation.

Full gear doors! I like it.
Nice 5612 here holding loose papers in place on my desk. It would probably never fit though....

Carl, Of course it will fit. My buddy Wade has one with a 5612, he flew it at E-jets this year. I'll try to point him this way.

Kev he used 3 4 cell packs. The 4 cell packs a small enough to fit beside the tail pipe and the other 4 cell went in between the intakes. It hauled the mail for sure. Cant wait to see your build bro!

I only have pics of it in the crate. never took pics when i pulled it out. There wasn't too much to do. i only have about 18 hours into it now.

The airframe was in some form of crash but wasn't too bad. the nose has been repaired although you would never know it. the guy that fixed it did a fantastic job. it must have been flipped on a crash...the top of the fin had some damage as did the horizontal stabs (some leading edge damage and some holes in the top surface. the main fuse body is in perfect shape. i filled in the charge jack and switch holes on the nose also...no switches for me.

the leading edge of the wing has been redone and a new wing tip was added...not by me although i did have to refill it, finish sand, and then paint the tips and leading edge. There were some very small hairline cracks coming from the gear openings that needed filled and painted....just a brush job there.

here are a few pics but its a bit hard to see.....

Kevin,
The aggressor has the 3 4 cell 6500 thunderpower packs they fit in like saddle cells the third pack goes in between the inlets. I built a box aprox. 1.25" tall for it to sit on. The new 7600 packs are to thick to fit. i can get you pics but it will be this weekend. If you have questions you can call me at 229-291-5589.
