    What CG are you guys using? It appears the 12 3/4 is nose heavy is this the case?

    12 3/4 works fine, it depends on your flying style if you need to adjust it.

    Thank You, I will use that for starters. Also, Thanks to the guys who posted pics of their motor mount ideas. I used the one supplied, had to modify it a little but my engine fits like a glove.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Can anyone tell me or recommend a can of orange paint that matches the tornados orange color? Mine came with a mis-matched red canopy and I need to paint it orange to match the plane.

    The paint can be obtained at any PPG paint dealer- look for automotive paint suppliers.

    I Did not solder my linkages. I used 4-40 all-threaded rod, and JB Welded a Sullivan clevis on one end, measured the rod and threaded the other end as normal with another Sullivan clevis. Secure and simple.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    Thanks greg that is definitly a way to do it.

    Guys just a quick update, The New V3 Torndo's will be here in Feb. Just a few key changes that we made to the new Tornado's

    1. Composite Booms carbonfiber reinforced
    2. Composite Stabilizer
    3. The fuse has several Carbon Fiber reinforcements. Nose, Motor Mount etc...
    4. Landing Gear is 1 1/2 inches shorter
    5. All Servo's are internal Ail,Rudder, Flaps
    6. Wings are built with Ply wood and carbonfiber ( no more balsa, only for sheeting )
    7. new cockpit tub for easier installation
    8. Airplane is now built for Rabbit 100 or P100


    With the Rabbit 100, thanks to my buddy from the Florida Highway Patrol got radared at 200 MPH ish maybe a little more but I will not admit to it. LOL
    I will have detailed pictures of all the mods and the new sport jet scheme in about 1 week. Pre-Orders will be taken in 2 weeks. The best change of all is the price

    Pre-Order Price of $449.00

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    That is correct that does not include landing gear. It comes with all hardware needed, fuel tank and motor mount. We will be selling a landing gear package made by spring air and Dreamworks will be making a set of custom Pro-link gear if you choose to go that route.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    I ran into a problem. The nose landing gear strut and retract mount are both female ends. How do you connect the two together. Am I missing something? The two wing struts had a male end.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    There should be a pin provided with the struts, and you secure it with the set screw.

    Hey Henry,

    I pickup a Tornado V1 second hand and it had your original servo package already installed and the plane has flown. But after trimming out, the plane still wouldn't hold a straight line. After landing, I looked at the elevator servos, it appears that the output shaft/gear wiggles a bit, normally its the linkages that causes this but they are solid. Did you guys notice this problem with your servos? I will be changing them out, mine seems a bit loose. Thanks

    Does yours have any slop in the output shaft? My elevators and rudders moves 1/8-1/4" from the slop, the aileron & flaps seems to be ok. I don't know if this happens over time or maybe just a bad couple of servos.

    RE: The new Tornado sport jet

    I know most will think it obvious, but are you judging the slop with power on or off, with the power on the slop on most servo's does decrease.
