burke, the acromaster is a more advanced platform in my opinion, it's a larger plane for certain and the flight characteristics are differnt i have heard (more characteristic of a balsa plane), i came super close to getting one of these planes...dragon who recently just got back on this thread i think, how are things btw? he has one and had nothing but good things to say about it if i can recall...

here is a link to a 150+ page thread on it :-)

Typhoon 2 SFG's on a Typhoon!


I'm looking for more consistant knife edge from my Typhoon 3D so I picked up some Typhoon 2 3D Side Force Generators.

The installation took about an hour as I had to figure out where to drill the holes in the wing. Looks like they go on the second rib from the outside edge. It took some time to line up the upper and lower bracket because I drilled prefect size holes and didn't leave any room for slop.

I let you know a flight report tomorrow.

It is lighter than the one you linked, and I am pretty happy with the Himax motors I have used. I still don't think it is needed, but I bet that would push the Ty like mad. Note the Acro is a bit heavier, so this will without a doubt pull a Ty.

Knife edge now requires very little rudder input. More predictable now. I need to play some more when there is less wind.

Where do you buy the SFG's? I didn't think you could buy them separate. so I was selling mine in the for sale section.

LOL, and I thought they were optional. I didn't realize they came stock with the TY2.

It's towards the bottom. I just printed this out and took it to my Local Hobby Store and they had it for me the next day.

The install was a little tricky, would have been a snap with ty2 wings because they already have the holes in the wing and the ty doesn't. didn't take that long though. Keep your ty spend the $10 on the part if that's the only reason your're selling.

Hey guys...got tired of the saggy covering and toy looks of the original scheme on the Typhoon and mine was starting to wear a bit after about 50 or 60 flights to date.

Here are some pics on my re-maiden after the refurbish. Hope yall like. Flys better too with the tight covering.

Anthony, looks good. I monokoted mine a while back as well. a good tight covering seems to make the plane much faster, even if mine ended up 3 ounces heavier.
