Turbine build thread Top RC model Super Galeb G4


Starting my top rc models super galeb G4. 93" long turbine jet. Here I will go into detail of each step for those interested. Info here.
http://www.taildraggerrc.com/toprcmo...cheme-turbine/
Caimen/gator rc are the exclusive USA importer and Taildragger rc also offers the jet kits.
So far I can say wow for the price these are way up to quality. All the glue of all composites used in these is hysol not cheap epoxy or hot glue.
I was going to do the aspire or odyssey sport jet but no one has done the super galeb yet and thought why not?
The super galeb is a former Yugoslavian and now Serbian trainer/ground attack jet. It really resembles a bae hawk or t45.
History of the super galeb and details here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soko_G-4_Super_Galeb

What really impressed me was the level of detail even including a scale pre finished cockpit kit. Many jet flyers know with the other brands the is usually a 300.00 extra item.

Very nice. I plan an odyssey or aspire in my future.
I haven't weighed yet but the model feels light. Top rc specs say 25 lbs. I am installing a k120 in mine however I think a 100n would be just fine

Taildragger,
That is NOT aeropoxy on the joints...Give one a little scratch with a sharp object.. It scrapes off..... EVERY former in those planes needs to be reglued... Beware!!!!!

I only had one loose former due to shipping I'm sure.Glue inside seems to be of good quality to me.
Got the wings mostly done today. More pics for later

I've been interested in these when I first heard about them, but they are not on your site, not on Gator site, so they seem extremely hard to get in the states. FYI, your link does not show anything about this plane as is typical. It's just a little irritating and frustrating to read about other people showing off theirs and they are unavailable.
