    Hi,
    no problem with Multiplex and trays like this one. The antennas are secured to the side of the fuselage. The strips have a length of 360mm, i bought it here: www.f3alorenz.de.

    Hi Paul, I am hoping to fly it this weekend but the weather is not looking good. I setup the flight modes and control surfaces lastnight so just waiting on a set of 400mm Spot On straps for the flight packs. Have you been flying yours lately?

    What difference is there between the 90 degrees and 95 degree stab fences in performance?

    Honestly, I couldn't tell much difference flying. I thought the 95 looked odd, so I went with the 90 degrees.

    Thanks Arch, yes I went with 90 degrees also. I wonder if the 95 degrees “Toe Inn’’ effect has an overall effect on the Yaw satiability.

    If it did, I couldn't tell the difference. Not saying it didn't, but I put quite a few flights on it with them and honestly could tell no difference than with the 90 degree setup.

    Ok thanks Arch. Did you try flying your episode with four stab fences? I had a look at my canopy lugs also and the nuts are missing off them, just threaded into the hard timber block. Secured them with some tin and gap filling CA.

    I'm currently flying mine with 2 on each side. I love how it feels now. Glad you found the nut issue.

    My plane has now 16 flights. With the flight characteristics I'm very happy. However, there is a little problem with the noice of the model. In knife-edges and snaps, but even in tighter curves I can hear a vibration / humming.


    I tested so far:

    -Other Propeller
    -Fixed canopy with tape
    -Filled-fuselage with foam

    Everything brought no improvement....


    Does anyone have similar experiences and knows what's wrong?

    When I ran a q80 with a stick type rear mount my I heard a noise like that. I always wondered if my rear mount was flexing. Not with an Episode, but a different plane several years ago. I know the fuse flexed if I pulled the prop back and forth. I notice this noise on a few airframes here and there with outrunners. I think they could benefit from a soft mount.

    I have about 50 flights now on my Episode and I am amazed at how well it flys.

    My Nuance will/would do the same at certain RPM ranges, using the same carbon fiber mount rear mount. I glued a cabon fiber tube accross it (lenght wise) to stiffen it up and the noise stopped. Mine would flex and even push in a bit on down lines and rub on the nose.

    My Nuance (Pletty outrunner) does as you describe. A few months ago I chopped out the old firewall and replaced it with stiffer material: not much difference.
    Then I thought it was a canopy vibration issues, so I re-did the latch.
    Just today I found that a bulkhead had partially come unglued from the fuse. Fixed and waiting for test flight.
    If that doesn't work, I'm prepared to live with it.

    Hi Alex,

    Interesting you say that. Im flying the new Hangar 9 Inversa 33 on Electric power with 10s setup. It also has a vibration on knife egde and snaps.
    Turns out it was just the wheels vibrating on the axles. The wheel pants act like an amplifier and the noise is quite loud.

    Maybe that is another area you should try next.

    Great, thanks for the answers!

    The motor mount is not the problem, i think. I have the engine on very hard rubber discs. But I also tested it on fixed discs made of aluminium. Made no difference...
    I flew even without rear mount, also no difference.

    I will try the mentioned things.

    Hey guys sales of the Episode have really taken off.
    I have a new shipment due in about 6 weeks from BJ Craft.
    We will be getting the RS and Tony versions as well as more ARC in this next shipment.
    We will have a very limited amount due. I'll open it up for sales when the planes are on the ship.
    Here are some pics of the Tony and RS versions.
    Thanks, MikeClick image for larger version.

    I also had some problems With that on my Spark, have almost the same Mount as you rubber in front and a "stick" in the back, I tried several material in the bakc when I found that it was the rear Mount that was the problem..carbon stick...aluminium the sound didnt disapperd but it changed...so I made a stel piece that I glued on to a carbon tube (carbone was a 6mm thick ) and the steel tube was glued on that..I made the steel tube With great care and I used a micrometer to messure it and made it 8,02mm that made the nasty snaproll and KE sound og away.
    I think My problem was that the rear bearing did not had a correct fit to that support

    I think the rear mount is not my problem. I made a few flight without the rear mount. No improvement...

    I'm sure it can be several things but my thing was the rear support I could also see that the bearing had been working its way on the first 2 sticks I had...but the last one was ok...maybe its Your fuse that are flexing and make noice what about try to make some formers off depron and glue inn ...if they dont make any diffrence its just to remove them again
