I will be following your build as I just picked up their "thunder Bird" and will start very soon!

what engine are you putting in yours? I will use a 30cc by DLE.

Default Update !!

The version 2 hardware has been upgraded to carbon fiber control horns, landing gear, and wing tube. Carbon fiber has also been added to the two bottom stringers of the fuselage for added strength. The carbon control horns have a clear protective film which needs to be removed otherwise glue will not stick I also lightly sanded the areas of the control horns to be glued in place to make sure of a secure bond. Overall the instructions that come on a mini cd-rom are fairly straight forward and have a lot of pictures which some times helps where the translation is lacking. So far I really like this kit the fit and finish are great considering the price.

Your comments are EXACTLY as I would have said...I have the Thunder Bird and it appears to be the same plane as yours, my Sbach and who knows what else...I too liked the price

Jerry, I would like to ask a few questions on your build if I may.

Did you have to add any additional weight to the plane to get the cg as specified by the manufacturer?

What is your planes assembled weight?

Do the elevator halves have the option to be joined together for the use of a single servo?

Thanks,
Rich

Rich, I'm still assembling mine, but I can answer the question regarding the stab.....sorry, you will need two servos as there is a rudder in the way. My Sbach (30cc) did not need any nose or tail weight to balance on the CG.

I asked about joining the elevator halves as I can see in the pictures the cut out in the fuselage that appeared like a joiner could be used to connected the two together... i.e. 3dhs and ef planes.

Thanks, I would appreciate any additional information you can provide on your build.

I have the 30cc Sbach, which odds on uses the same manual since mine covered like 3-4 aircraft in one book (99% sure that the MX2 was included within), and mine showed the install of the supplied wooden joiner for joining the two elevator half's together - that said, I went for two servos after covering up the holes at the rear of the horizontal stab that you spotted on the pics above.
Hope that helps some.

Thanks for the info this far. I hope someone with this plane would chime in as well. Really interested in hearing about the cg on this model... last thing I would ever want is having to add weight to a 3d plane.

Great read. Im ordering the fly model yak54 and putting my dle30 with reed mod and bowman ring. I have read tons of good things on fly model's arfs and seems to be a great buy for the price.

Thanks, Jo
