are you building a Shrike 10 ?
I just started building mine .
I ordered in a OS 32 SX ,Macs Header and tune pipe,
Hitec HS-475HB Deluxe Karbonite Gear Servos.
I was going to use Micro servos ,but I will make up the
weight somewhere else.
I thinking of Dark Blue Monokoke on the top,white underneath with
red stripes of some dimensions.
I havn't decided to go with Jett bubbles tank or a Hayes Clunk tank.
Heres a pic of my beginnings .

I just started building mine .
i just started buiding mine too, same stage as you, changing the spars for carbon tube 1/4 " . ( heard they were weak)
also thinking of reducing the thickness of each rib by 1/8" each side giving maybe a thinner airfoil
not sure though how it would affect handling

i am waiting now for an engine mount , to continue.

Nice lookin' airplanes E-D

How big an engine do ya think one of these would be able to handle?

Do you think a modified rear exh. MVVS .49 w/ un-muffled pipe would be over-overkill?

Would I even be able to balance it I wonder...(no, I mean Shrike...haha)

Here's my Shrike 40. Bought it from Jeremy a while back. Sorry, but the pics aren't too good since the paint is iridescent and doesn't show up well. She'll be getting a Jett 60L FIRE and full length quiet pipe this winter.

Heres one , when this Shrike is in the air from a distance .
It looks like the plane has swept wings . The lighting bolts
give it that appreance. Also the plane has neon pink on
the bottom.

Default RE: Show your shrike pics

Izzy,
Here are a few pics of my shrike . It's the 10 sized version with a Magnum XL-15 and tuned pipe. I wanted to achieve a jet look to it so I moved the canopy forward and shortened the hatch. this also meant rotating the engine to run the pipe under the fuse and I made up a f/g belly to house the pipe and be strong enough to belly land on. Also modified a williams bros pilot to continue with the 'jet' look. All finished weight is 2lbs 8 ozs. Well, this experiment didn't yeild quite the results I had hoped for. With the added frontal area the shrike did not want to fly. I cleanly cut the belly pan off and left the set up as is, and it's a great flyer now. We fly off grass so landing on the pipe has not been a problem. It's a fun plane to fly at all speeds. Best of luck with yours!!

Here is mine
I modified it a little bit.
- Put 1X 1/4" carbon to replace wing spare
- Install firewall 1/2" back for CG (OS.32 with MAC tune pipe)
- Laminate the thin rudders with 1/32" balsa and glue it with an inclinaison, better looking I think.
- Wing ailerons are shorter by 1.5"

Try many prop from 7 to 9 inch. The best acceleration and speed ratio was obtain with an APC 8X7 running not far from 17 500
