Default Jett Radial mounts

Jett 90L powered GP Big Stick 60....

The 3 hole Jett radial mount worked out GREAT!!!

The black disc is a chunk of Delrin that I machined to accept the stock blind nut hole locations on the ARF. The Jett mount bolts up to the Delrin disc and also allows me to run the Fults nose gear.

I bought a roll of the Graupner control surface tape as well....

I hope I don't break it....................

Nice !!!

Make sure the firewall is on there well, and ensure that the fuel tank is padded all around. Should be a heck of a good flying machine

The Engine is mounted horz.

The hatch is 1/8th balsa and just glued on the ARF. I cut the hatch out/off and will replace it with ply after I beef up the firewall. There is also a thin bulkhead that supports the "proprietary" fuel tank. You're stuck using the GP tank unless you remove it.
I bought a Hayes 16oz slimline. Per your instructions I'll be able to pad the tank all over with 1/2" foam rubber. I hope I don't have any fuel tank issues.

What's you best guess "run time" for a Jett 90L on 16 oz's?...... wot

Sorry for the delay responding......

the 90L at full song burns just under 2oz per minute. Figure you have 7-8 min, but throttling back part of the flight really can extend that
