These all belong to customers and I have no idea. I can ask, but doubt they weighed them

Two friends of mine have the CARF Viperjet. Both have a weight of about 17 KG.

Best regards,
Karsten

Default New to the Viper

Hello, I am new to turbine jets and just acquired a Harlock Viper 250 which I understand is the same as the Zeal and Carf Viper. That being said, are there and hints or tips you guys can share. I also have a few questions:
1. Has anyone used an alternate method to mount the satibilizers. With drilling through the stabilizers in the support rod, wont the carbon rod crack?
2. How is the rudder mounted to the fuse itself? The same as the stabs? It seems like the front of the rudder would be loos and unsupported.
3. The fuel tank only has one nipple. How is the tank vented?
4. What size uat and smoke tank smoke tank is recommented?
5. What else is needed for smoke to work?
6. Do you guys hard mounting your servos or use the rubber grommets?
7. My kit only comes with a tank and single nipple fuel cap. Can someone recommend a klunk kit for the fuel tank?
8. How is the tail cone attached?
9. What supports the rear tail cone?
10. The is a bell mouth and a half carbon bypass. Which is the preferred method.
11. How big is the fuel tank?
thanks in advance.

Are you guys permanently mounting the fuse halves? Or are the 4 screws enough? Once everything installed the front half seems fairly heavy.
thanks,
Tone
