Thanks for the info. I figured since the weather is bad, the cat ate his turbine and the planets aren't yet aligned correctly, that I had some time to ask a newb question or two. I'll poke around a little first next time

They seem to have wasted loads of time on getting the electronics sorted when they should have just used one off the shelf like everyone else and introduced their own down the road when the turbine was out there.

maybe it's because theirs has afterburner and the ones already exist don't support this
:O

the jetcat has already flown in another falcon . flew it well . unfortunatley the falcon handgrenaded in the air after only 155 flights . i would suggest anybody putting a turbine in the falcon to not exceed 154 flights before retiring the airframe

we have falcons with many more flights..
what you need to check are the spars the hinges and that the canopy sits well ...

Surprised at your reaction Pav. I recall a long time ago telling you that this plane needs MAJOR modifications to make it safe.

If your willing to put in the effort(to me its not much) then you will have a fantastic flying jet. Ive seen many fly with a P-60,70 Perfect combo for this model.

Do your research Jester. Look on RCU for what is needed.

Funny post by the way Jester
