    I matched the colours at Jetpower to Oracover, perfect matches.

    You need the colour codes?

    I have them at the office and will post hear if you need them.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    I got the canopy on Friday. it is much heavier plastic and looks like a real high quality. I have not trimmer or done anything with it yet.

    Glad to hear the NoRay canopies have not lost any of their quality since the Falcon 120 first came out.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    by the way the canopy comes crystal clear. I need to go by some Tamiya smoke paint to tint it a bit. That stuff is the easiest way to go I have found. Just do light mist coats. I have tried the rit dye method soaking in hot water and don't really care for it.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    I just started trimming the cockpit tub that comes with the kit. I didnt realize that was such a poor fit as well. I didn't order one from Ray, but I guess I should have. I can make the stock one work though.

    Yes, the stock tub and canopy are not good fits. I actually purchased two Noray V2 canopies before I knew they didn't fit the V3 well. I will purchase the V3 canopy and tub from Ray.

    i agree they are not a good fit but can be made to fit if you use my frame technique. Very solid and robust when completed. The fact that the Norray canopies are less likely to split makes them a whole lot easier to work with when pulling them across the fuz canopy aperture.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    This is how I did it for the V1 not very nice looking however it is all hidden and works well. On my Falcon 120 I had 4 screws holding the canopy down a bit of a pain. It is an aftermarket canopy I got from the good old USA can’t remember who from. However it is very good quality and it fitted.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Wow! Changing out a aileron servo after noticing some slop I was testing things when I found a burned up elevator servo! The other servo was operating the elevator on the last flight when I brought her in just cuz she didn't feel right....


    225 mg must have been binding....my bad I guess....

    Lucky lucky lucky.....

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Are you using a 5 cell nicad or A123 receiver battery? Hitec 225'sdon't like 6+ volts and are notorious for burning out. Use a 4 cell pack or better yet different servos. 225's don't return to center very well either.

    Or split the elevator and they will not fight each other.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    5245s will work I almost went with them but Ive heard of alot of people having issues with them, I am a fan hitec servos btw. I ventured out and went with some Airtronics 94820s havent flown the new tornado yet about 80% built but so far they seem plenty strong and seem to center
    perfectly, unlike my hitecs that seem to struggle with that sometimes

    I had Hitec HS-5245MG on the rudders and elevator with LiFe batteries in my V1 tornado that I sold last week and had well over 70 flights with no issues at all. One thing I must clarify, I programmed the elevator servos so that the don't bind at all through out the entire travel.
