Default BVM F-86 80"

hi amigos

afther more than 2 years of sending my sabre to the end of the line, i manged to finish it

i was a litle nervous but no problems, just a few clicks on down elevator and flew good

i used futaba 14 mz radio, spektrum 6000 mah lipo on rec. and duralite 5400 on turbine

the turbine is a jet central eagle, i used full thrust on take of then i reduced power to a little les than half stik on

my radio, painted wit automotive paint and used futaba helicopter servos on elevs ruder flaps and ailerons

Hi Paul (and Greg ),

Your F 86 looks terrific.

Nice to see that there are still guys around building these kits.. BVs 80" Sabre is a big effort to get into the air. I would think 2 years to be pretty reasonable.

A big effort, but you end up with a beautiful and well engineered model that you truly own. For me, these are much more satisfying projects then a pre painted ARF.


Roger

yes Roger you are rigth

to me is more satisfying a good kit even if you have to work a lot more

i think is like a diferent hobbie, builder and flyer is better to me

but i dont disagree with arf`s there are some good ones, i have some very nice bvm and skymaster arf jets


thank you, im glad for your comments

Hi paul, The color scheme that i have chosen to do is to honor my canadian heritage and nationality. It will be all painted in the Golden Hawks color scheme.
