    Skymasters DG-600T

    Is there anyone who has built the Skymasters DG-600T?
    Does anyone have some experience (flight characteristics) with the glider,and I am interested of the CG position and how others have solved the servo installations in the wing.

    RE: Skymasters DG-600T

    Okay!
    I understand!
    Nobody is interested in a "small" jet glider!
    But!
    I'm almost ready for the maiden with my glider.
    I did a lot of changes on "my" model, since there was no manual in the kit!
    Of course, there will be a film on my DG-600T maiden!

    Here is some build pictures!

    RE: Skymasters DG-600T

    Lasse,
    Hello iam always intrested in a turbine glider after watching Ali flying one a few years ago, i have a baudis Salto on its way for a p60.I looked at the Skymaster model but thought it overpriced compared to Baudis, HF Modellell etc, these are all well known and respected model glider makers and fly very well.I have stuck several turbines on gliders as they suit my style of flying and more important my flying site plus we have too many F16s F15s Boomers locally.
    Please keep us informed on your DG,
    cheers Euan.

    In fact!
    I don't know, I got some pictures from John (SM), so I tried to do something that looked like the pictures!

    RE: Skymasters DG-600T

    Lasse, I made a Rosenthal DG600 years ago. Flew really nice. This one looks great and would estimate the CG to be right on front edge of the joiner. Which is a pretty standard location.

    Thanks!
    I understand that!
    Just thought I'd ask someone Skymaster (Turbine DG-600) owner for the precise CG location for the best performence, because i think it will be so much unnecessary lead weights in the nose.

    Regards

    Sorry,

    I use HS-5245 MG to the flaps and HS-125 MG to the aileron.

    RE: Skymasters DG-600T

    Lasse, typical scale sailplane has a fair chunk of lead or ball bearings mixed in epoxy right up there in the nose. Only on weak days are sailplane guys concerned about any additional ballast : )
    May want to try rcgroups scale sailplane forum to find a SM DG600 owner.
    Anyways, good luck

    RE: Skymasters DG-600T

    I maidened my DG-600 last month
    The first flight was really great, the glider is really easie to fly.
    In the current situation, I have flown 40 times. Other, I love this concept with glider and the P-20SX

    The concept with P-20SX is great, and the glider is really simple to handle.[8D]

    A small tip!
    I've turned the "landing gear", it become much easier to start the model from the ground.
    See pictures.
