I think the ''Iceland'' scheme is one of the best color schemes I have seen yet....if I ever have to replace my T-Birds Flash ( knock on wood...) I would get that scheme for sure!
Dave

This is where it was born from...

Dave
For some reason I like the idea of it being known as the "Iceland" scheme, lol
As a proud owner of the Ultra Flash in question and a patriot:

I second the motion that here after it will be refered to as the "Iceland" scheme.

Brgds,

Guys,
I'm planing a trip to US and I'm considering to purchase an Ultra Flash.
Can somebody tell me the box size? I need this information to confirm the airlines can transport it as checked baggage. Usually they have a limit of a maximum of 100 inches (length, width, high).
Regards.

Olá Ricardinho,
I did remember to see you in other discussion. I live close to Sao paulo. I will be in Florida for the Florida Jets 2012 and would like to take this opportunity to by another jet, an upgrade from my boomerang sprint but I'm afraid the jets in the 12-16kg class will be big enought to be not accepted by the airlines.

Regards,

Mucio

Be a brilliant combo. I was flying my P-120SX version again today and its fabulous, little bit more power would be fine, without the silly power from a P-160.
Gray day, but few photos from RCJi's new trainee photographer, first time with camera...

Give it a break Dave, 160 power is only 'silly' in silly hands.

Jetpower,

I'm putting a 140RX in one. Just finished the motor/bypass installation and it was a drop in fit. At the rate I build and the weather up here in darkest Scotland it will be the spring before it flies.

After a false start a while back due to a faulty fuel solenoid, followed by heavy work commitments, I finally got to maiden my UF this weekend. Here's some video of it....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKLYdFpO6G4

All good... only minor trim adjustments needed. The UF performed beautifully!

Just an iPhone video, and it overexposed a large chunk of it, but you get the idea. This plane is.seriously.FAST!

Do you think this gear will fit well in the UF?

http://www.behotec.de/xtcommerce/pro...for-Flash.html

I think this legs will resist better the landing impacts and they will mantain straight easily, better than the AT legs.

Thanks

Yes, easier than the Classic Flash as the UF leg channel is wider

Does anyone experience tension between wing and fuselage?
Seems the white inlet duct is the cause of trouble. No adjustment can be made except removing it and that is not an option!

Question for the UF masters..

What is the difference between the Behotec C36 and C36/2 retract units??? I have a new UF on the way and already purchased the PRO LINK main strits drilled for the 6mm pins. I want to make sure I order the correct set..

I would also like to order the CARF nose Strut, 6mm main pins, 6mm nose gear pin and the collar and the Intarico main wheels and brakes.. Anyone have this pkg ?? Ill buy now..

Thanks

Doug

The C36 is air up/spring down. 36/2 air up/down. Better for UF as the wheels can stay in the wing and fuse in storage and transport.
36/2 is what You want...also the 36 has a much longer cylinder.
TP.
