Alfa Model F-86 Sabre


Hey guys,

I just purchased this plane from a local hobby shop, it was used, came with a hacker es-4900kv, e-flite servos, hacker x-20 speed controller, reciever all pre-installed, little damage to the nose from a bad landing apparently, nothing i can't fix. Unfortunately it did not come with a manual.

Does anyone know where the C.G point is on this plane? Any advice/hints with this plane would be appreciated.


Thanks

Luis

Two moulded-in pips on the underside of the airframe mark the CofG point

Do you guys know of any place that sells Replacement pieces for this model?

I would like to change the Front Plastic Duct, It is a little banged up, and i think it would be lighter and easier to just buy a new one, then trying to fix it up.

Thanks,

Luis

You might have more resources over in the "foamy EDF" forum. Here's a link to one thread that talks about an aftermarket nose/duct reinforcement for the Alfa F-86: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=575608
Good Luck,
