H-9 Phoenix 7 build note! mis-print!!
 
Finishing up on mine and note a mis-print on step 10: it call's for a 7/32" drill bit, IT SHOULD BE 3/32" bit. I'm sure everybody would catch this but thought I'd pass it along. Pete:):)

I picked mine up last night after work along with a Evo 60NX. I'll be installing Eflite's retracts (I'll get them up on Saturday) and the header and pipe are on order. [:o]
The build (assembly) starts today and shooting for next weekend for the maiden.

Does anyone have experience with this Evolution 60NX? Just curious. Seems to be a new engine with not a lot of info on RCU.

I cant wait to start hearing flight reports. I'm REALLY happy that you guys seem pleased with the quality of the model.

RE: H-9 Phoenix 7 build note! mis-print!!
 
Pete - how did you get the spinner so close to the nose ring? Mine is about 1/8" from the nose ring, 1/16" too far out. I followed the instructions and mounted the engine so the face of the thrust washer is 4-7/16" from the firewall. Is there a better way to install the engine so the spinner gap can be minimized?

Good luck with the maiden! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

OOp's, forgot to post that one, the measurements are off by3/32. I ca-ed my engine to the mounts and aligned it that way,then drill it when it right. I do that with all my engine install works pretty good, sorry bout that in all the frenzy I just plum forgot to post it. another option is buy a dubro spinner it has the offset and will take up about 1/16" towards the nose of the plane.

rv7driver 09-16-2010 06:05 PM

RE: H-9 Phoenix 7 build note! mis-print!!
 
Ron, to answer your questions, The weight came out to 7lbs. 4ozs. with the 60NX its a little tail heavy, I'm using a 5cell nami's 6.0v 1400Mah weight is 4.5ozs. so I move it foward as far as I could and it came out right on (neutral). I did not get to fly today due to other things going on so, I'm taking it to Alabaster AL tomorrow for the SPA contest I will give the P-7 its first flight there before the contest Saturday. no pressure right!
Everybody thats seen this plane really likes it's my house has been like Grand Central Station!! Lol. Pete :D

That's what I thought. I'm going to leave it as is for now and I'll end up getting another set of mounts (when they're available) and re-do them. I'm not crazy about plastic spinners turning at high RPMs, so I'll be getting an aluminum spinner down the road. Good luck this weekend, let us know how it goes!
