Rudeboy,
Yeah, a fuel stopper will be needed, along with a throttle linkage, and a zip tie or two to hold the rear of the tuned pipe to its bracket. It will also be necessary to put a couple more bolts in to hold that Jett 50 FIRE in place - Ha!
I also have to install the JR 8411's, and gapseal the underside of the elevons - so I have a little bit more work to do. (Also have to finish my catapult!)
I got that tank from a friend who didn't want to use it in an ARF. Its a Chinese tank, its 200ml or about 6.75 oz and has the letters "JDL" and "200ml" moulded into it. That's all I know about it, other than it is a perfect fit for the Whiplash, and gets me another .75oz of capacity. I'm going to make a bladder tank with it, using a baby bottle liner.
Anybody know more about this tank? I'd like to know where to get some more.
~John

This is a Wiseguy, a Simitar that Bill Evens designed, the fastest I have a picture of.
It is using a Rossi .40, I have 10 projects ahead of my next screamer, but I'll be back.

Need for speed started way back with a Rossi .40 in a sky tiger Jr. ... what a rush!!

Couldn't help putting one more picture in. This is the way it should fly!!
This is a clipped wing version and really is not in the speed range as the delta wings, so that will be the next entry

I think it was Goose in TOP GUN that said it best. When asked "hows it hanging?" The reply was: " one in front of the other for speed"

In love with my kit-Patriot that I really enjoyed to construct
and for sure to fly !!! It has about 5 flights with a stock
Rossi 53 (going to increase exh.timing about 10 degrees and switch to a full pipe and laborate with props) A JETT '50
would have been more suitable, as the Rossi gave me a
weight-penalty of about 5 ounces (3 ounces from tail-lead),
but the Jett costs twice the Rossi here.
Enlarged the firewall by 1/4" allowing a 12 oz sullivan tank
as well as Eurokit pneumatic retracts.

Speed Freaks membership, and Revvers #28 is yours
in the Brotherhood....Rev on....

I bought a Patriot off Razor, and its one of the best planes in my collection. I love the color scheme and designs you did on yours. I just got a 46fx and looking for a tuned pipe to put on mine. So if anyonme has a cheap pipe let me know so I too can go fast LOL thanks Tim

Brothers !

So far the retracts workes fine , from grass also! They are protected by the Eurokit legs that have spring-suspension.
The nosewheel however will soon be fully steerable by pull-pull, it doesn't taxi well by rudder alone.
Wheels are 2.25", largest possible, making landings on grass "hangar ship tailhook like"
Take offs asks for a little more power......

Yes I made a new firewall measuring 1/4" weider and 1/4" higher than the one in kit.

Wonder how the Patriot-Jett .90 seen in Jetts hall of fame got the CG right ? lots of lead in tail ?

And, thank's for your liking of the color sheme

Henrik

I can't deny it. I'm an addict. I've flown small fast electrics for the last few years. But fell off the wagon for a summer romance with Fun Flys. That got boring quick. So This summer I went back. Currently in my fleet I have a Laser Arrow, Brushless ProJeti and I have a Diamond Dust on the way. The ProJeti is , per sq inch. the fastest while I wait on the DD. I have not measured mine, but the same set up has been clocked at just over 100 MPH in a dive.

Of course, like all RC Addcts I always plan my Q 2 planes in advance. So after the DD, I'm looking for a good prop-jet kit. I like to build. And I find building slows down the buy rate. :stupid:

What number am I? #30....welcome to the Speed Freaks

It all started with a sweet stick with a Super Tigre 61. It has been all speed since.

Now I am working on a 1/2 shrike w/a conquest 15, and a Sig Wonder.

The Wonder is almost completed and is my 2nd Wonder. The first was powered by a Heli O.S. 28 with pipe and was fast, but like a true speed nut I wanna go faster. I have a 2.2 HP Pico .45 w/pipe without a home, so it will be wedged into the Wonder. Call me nuts, crazy, insane, or even just stupid, but I refuse to slow down.

Paul....#32 is yours, welcome to the Brotherhood...

Hi again all,
I have just gotten a fast plane that is a one of a kind. It is a Simitar type flying wing. ( Based loosely on a Bill Evens design) We have been having a fun fly for two days now and are winding it down with the last day tomorrow.

I couldn't help myself, and needed to share this with everybody.
This is a custom plane that is built around a Rossi 91 two stroke and tuned pipe. It sports trike retracts and on-board tuning. It is very fast but has not been clocked. It is easily over a hundred miles an hour and is a bear to slow down and get back on the ground.
With it's small frontal signature it will really build up speed, and will scream past at a blistering pace.

being a speed brother I would like to see all the new arrivals,
Revver #27 MR Flyer57

That is an entirely awesome picture!! Get thee a spinner to go with that backplate!!

Great looking plane, I just love it. Looks like something out of an old comic book, futuristic and very cool!!

Please post some more pics, that is just too neat to keep under wraps.

Yes Yes,
A spinner is required, but the @#%@% thing broke when the front landing gear collapsed.
I don't have a picture of it before then, well at least one that looks very good.

I have just a pic or two for ya.

Only one more, as not to spam
Any questions will be answered!!
We just had our third annual Simitar fly-in here in Elko NV and it flew there again.
As you can see in the pic the frontal area is quite small for such a large plane.

What prop are you running on the Rossi??
