Swiss Spark

Here is my story. I sold my green Spark to a buddy coming visit me on sunday.
I start working on my new Swiss Spark on monday night. After 4 nights. It done.
This one I go all out with gear doors and full cockpit.
It little heavier than my green one. It weight 11.7 lbs with 11s 5000mAh.
The UP-2 valve, extra airline, air cylinger, doors, and full cockpit weight a pound heavier.
But for the nice look. I can live with that.
Hope with less drag make up the speed been a pound heavier.

I love the new trailing struts, I gotta get me a set of those!
The gear doors really clean it up don't they? Where'd you get the extra pieces to cover the nose gear opening?

Thanks Harry,
All the parts for struts just send out to anodize (natural color) this afternoon. Tomorrow pick up. Monday when I'm back in the office and start the assemble. Mid next week should be ready to ship.

The extra pieces come with the kit. I laminate with G-10 to made is stiffer for gear door.

LOOKS GREAT! Your latest ride has the fit and finish of an "all winter long building" sorta project! Not common in a 4 day build. Nice. Are you using air valves for the gear doors or sequenced servos?

Hey Tam, good job on the new Spark. The landing gear doors add a nice touch. I like the "Tamjet Made - USA" (Tamglish for "Made in the USA") on the front strut. If you have time, get some video of the landing gear/doors working. Have fun flying it, won't be long before someone buys it.

Calssic Tamlish!

I flew just west of Apollo feild yesterday (LA Jets) at about 5:45pm and was watching it slip behind the plane... I thought I could just barely hear the upcoming echoes of all the So Cal boys doing Tamlish immitations and whooping it up at his tent for this weekend No, I don't have a mental condition. But I do wish I could have gone to LA Jets! Y'all have fun out there!

I was hoping to meet you Eddie. See the rest of you there today and tomorrow

Tam, you would be better off (weight wise) using micro servos and a controller, this is what I am doing with my Spark. Total weight is less than 2oz for 3 servos and controller. No air tank or cylinders required.
