    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    Thanks for asking.

    It started with my nose gear steering becoming interrmittent. It was staying in a straight alignment so we thought we would give it a try. The plane picked up speed and the rudder was effective early but I needed very little correction. Plane broke ground nice and smooth and off she went. I made some passes to trim it out and test the flap to eleavator mixes for landing. Plane flew really good and I am happy. My landing setup was good and I brought it to just short of touch down to let it bleed off the extra speed. After touch down I ended up lifting off slightly and the nose wheel hit and it pulled out my mounting screws. Nothing too bad. I was weary of putting in blind nuts.
    Well, today I swapped out the servo for steering and fixed the gear mount, so I should be good for tomorrow to try again. Overall, I am happy with my first jet flight and want to thank my jet flying buddy Nick for coming up from Pittsburgh to lend me some guidance.

    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    With a few minor trivialities .......sounds like you had a good flight, bugs are bugs.....they all get worked out in the end,
    You bringing/flying the jet next weekend ?
    I heard the 55%'r is gone to a new home, I've started to fit mine out, spend an hour or two of a nite time, it's small stuff that takes the time,
    Told Dave that we'll probably be up there next thursday nite ready for friday session, stay friday nite, fly saturday & come home late saturday,
    Looking forward to seeing you and the gang next weekend.

    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    i have a P-160SX in mine as of now and it flys great, but could use a bit more power for my style of flying (i like fast aerobatics)

    the way i see it the 180RX is a bit more powerful than 160SX (about 160-170N Vs. 175N) but the P-200SX (with an added 600g weight penalty) is 230N and it seems the Tuono with its 7L fuel payload can take the extra weight, and if i wanted to keep the AUW the same i could just fuel it 600g of fuel less per every flight.

    I reckon the P-200SX will fly happily on 6L instead of 7L full tanks. especially since there wont be a lot of full throttle usage.

    Here it is on P-160SX power:

    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    Some nice flying there. Two thumbs up !!!!!

    I have watched several of your videos and the Tuono on the 160 looks good. I can't believe you want a 200, but that is what is cool about this hobby. Everyone has a different flying styles and what they look for out of a model. I like the way my Tuono flies, but wish and look forward to the 180 JC whenever it ges here. Just want that bit more.

    You will have to post a video if you put that 200 in the plane.

    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    Hello Tuono flyers!

    Worke has kept me off doing the maiden on my JPS Tuono

    Last night i did the last checks and everything is working fine.

    I just want to ask you guys where is your center of gravity?
    Mauro suggest in his manual 15mm in front of the main spar; I have set mine to about 10-11 mm in front of the main spar (landing gear out, hopper full and main tanks filled just a little).

    Do you think thats OK?

    Cheers

    Thomas

    I think you should be fine.
    I found the stock CG (10mm in front of spar i think) a bit nose heavy for my style of flying and went back from there a bit and she flys amazing !

    RE: Pirotti Tuono

    Hi Lihor;
    Hi Joe;

    many thanks for comfirming back to me!

    Just another question:

    How does the model behave when setting the flaps in landing position; do i need an elevator mix to it?

    Or in general, do you use any mixes at all? Which?

    Have you tried crow for landing?

    Cheers
