Default nitroplanes super falcon biuld given up

i cant believe that no one on this whole planet is not biulding a nitroplanes super falcon 120, i had to wait almost a year to get one, cause , as you know nitroplanes is always out of stock, on all their planes, im biulding the glow version, yes the GLOWVERSION , thought i would get help on jet thread, no way!!! was directed here, and still cant get any help, yeah im pissed, and disgusted, seems everyone is putting a turbine on them, thats cool, but my wallet says no way, i;ve given up on trying to get help here, just gonna go with my gut feeling, biuld it, if it flys, cool, if it dont, oh well, will seek out others who wanna help, or ill just put it back in box, and store it away, so i dont have to look at it, and be reminded of the lack of help, very disgusted, maybe in 20 yrs turbines will cost what a good 2 stroke is, what am i saying 20 yrs from now ill be dead, oh well maybe in the next lifetime

Default RE: nitroplanes super falcon biuld given up

First the Jet forum has plenty of usefull information on building mods, various retracts, a replacement canopy of higher quality, flight set up information.
No matter how you power it.. glow fuel, ducted fan, E-power, EDF, turbine. There is stuff there for you.
I know two jet pilots that fly them, yes with turbines, and have seen wing failure in flight.

Why not here in the speed freak forum? the plane is not as fast as you would think.

I had the nitroplanes bobcat 50 and it was a POS!

1) poor build quality
2) junk for hardware
3) trim covering peeled off since the very first flight
4) required nose weight to balance

also the 50 was rather heavy and lots of drag too,
I had an OS.50SX then a JETT.50 it really needed a .75

Problems with a pusher of any size is:
LIMITED SELECTION OF PUSHER PROPS
EXAUST EXITS UPWIND with stock muffler or standard tuned pipe.
Fuel tank setup...

For your 120...
how big of a 2-stroke are you planning to use?
have you checked on prop selection?
can you buy a counter rotating crank to use tractor props?
do you plan on retracts?
