    This is my first jet build so enjoy.
    Any suggestion greatly helps, but please no bashing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ft3aOHBRGCE
    "Tip"
    Find a large zip-tie and cut the one end off and shrink wrap it to the inside edge of the steering cables. When the cables go slack, the zip-tie will spread the cables and keep the nose gear from getting tangled.

    I did and I have 21 flights on my plane. the last two flights I had to move the 2 x 2200 LiFe batteries around 10 cm forward because I couldn't put them back in their original location in the field (and I had no time to try hard ) and man I am glad I did that, it flies much better now. So my advise is to level all gears (the nose being on the scale) and place everything inside for the scale to read slightly over 1.5 lbs.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    If you are going to reinforce these areas I would recommend using chopped glass fibre rather than micro ballons, much stronger for a over 15lb turbine.

    Agreed, micro ballons are just filler and don't add strength. Glass fiber on the other hand does add strength.

    A better way is to cut a wooden block to just fit into the space below the t-nut and drill a hole in it for the bolt to go through, epoxy it in place and sand it even with the bottom of the boom. That's how I did mine. Besides adding more strength that will also prevent damage if you over tighten the boom bolts. A friend lost his Falcon 120 right after tightening the bolts. The post mortem revealed that he had cracked the small piece of plywood that the t-nut is mounted on.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    That was a standard thing to do on the Falcon 120, I even had to do it on the smaller Bobcat, I'm surprised this was still the same setup as it was always a weak point, I added extra pieces of wood on mine as well.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    This is not a weak point or a flaw. We reinforced this area enough. The reason I put this addendum out is because after 280 flights on my factory demo. That we take to all the shows and everybody flies a beats up with snap rolls and high G turns at full throttle came loose on the inspection I did after this weekends fun. All I suggest is making sure it is glued properly that's all. Please all wanting to re-engineer an airplane that they don't have I ask you to please keep your comments to your self. We have sold over 450 kits this year and brought over 200 new jet pilots to our club of turbine pilots around the world. So for the sake of those who don't have much building experience let's keep this simple. The next models will be taken care of in a totally new way so let's keep this simple for the new guys thanks.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Henry you are just unbelievable at times, all any of us have said is what we had already done to fix the problem, check out the Falcon 120 and nitro planes bobcat threads, there are lots of posts and pictures with exactly the same potential problem, because the ply plate that holds the captive nut, locates into the booms the exact same way, then obviously the fix is the same.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Actually it is different but I am not here to discuss how. All your ideas are great and will do the job. The addendum only requires you to add extra glue and thats all but if you want to go above and beyond thats is upto the builder.

    ...............I did start to fit the tank that’s comes with the tornado however after a hour f-ing about in side the fuselage to get a good fit lost interest so water bottle will be fitted.
    it's really quiet simple, you stick the fuel tank in it's location..........insert the wing tubes and it's there, can't get much easier then that.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Sir you can do as your wish with your model, but like I have mentioned in the addendum, YOU HAVE TO GLUE the STAB. It's not optional if you choose not to do that then it's your responsibility if you loose your plane. We will not help in anyway. The airplane structurally is made to be built the way the instructions say. We have tested it thoroughly and I suggest you built it the way we say.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    This past weekend I witness a maiden of a first batch Tornado. What a great plane for the money, it was powered by a JC Bee and it has more than enough power. I want one for christmas, but now with the Hurricane coming, I don't know what to do.
