Default Thrust Vector on 2 Dog RC Yak 52 EPP !

Recently, I came across the new Hyperion Enigma. A new 3D ship that has Thrust Vectoring. Check out my post with video: http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60992


Well the Thrust Vector device is hidden by the cowl, but I went to bed dreaming about it... I woke up this morning, and after 15 minutes with off the shelf parts, this is what I came up with...


The worlds first 2 Dog RC EPP Yak 54 with THRUST VECTORING!

Super cheap, I used landing gear nose blocks. Off the shelf less than $5.00 for a pair of packs. Simple attachment at the motor base, add a servo, mix it with rudder and PRESTO!

Yes - I know this is an old thread, but I was about to order a thrust vectoring Enigma 3D and was looking for a review when I 'landed here!' And you have inspired me to bodge-up a thrust vectoring system for my E-flite Sukhoi SU-26 instead . . . after all, I already have the model, and I know that it flies really well! I just need to finish re-covering my old MoJo, do a quick tidy-up, and then I can delve into my stock of spare parts as I'm sure I have enough to do the job. Thanks Nitro Blast for the great idea, Tony
