Bit of a dry fit fest this afternoon ... looks about right doesnt it? How does one cut a thrust tube neatly?

Scott,
Good effort and thanks for the photos , how about a large dremel cut off wheel to trim your thrust pipes ?

Euan il buy your g500!! I got 2 p20s sitting here 😜 lol that's a nice plane 2 p20s will look mint in that!! The Lear jet I believe is to small for the p20s what do you think about an a380 or 747 with 4 p20s????? Ther was a chap selling one in the estates a while back that was a 747!! Without any electrics ideal for 4x p20s any how sure why don't you move up to Bham?? We both can fly them together and have a few 🍻😃, what do you plan to put in the Lear then?? 90 mm we mo tec fans and 2x het 2w25 or 2w23 on 6s will be a good electric set up!

Rajj,
The Cessna is not for sale , your lear will have two low cost 4s 70 mm from HK in it along with some electric retracts.I have already fitted the retracts and added a battery hatch /a 747
Raj your vortex flies very well and a nice runway to use , move to BRUM ?? no way too near my parents in Leicester still i miss flying at Hucknall and years ago at Goosedale,
cheers Euan,
ps Scott next fly in at Scottish airshow in April,

Wow great modeling siddus74!

Nitroplanes, HK this is a great thread!


this kind of project has "Rob Janiger" written all over it.......P-20s, a bunch of Brits to copy, chance to buy Hobby King stuff, use a coke bottle fuel tank.

I cant wait!

certs mean jack!! so many great pilots out there that fly great!, such as raj. its only a piece of paper at the end of the day. im not any amasing pilot, just an average pilot(with an A if it means anything!lol) and just go out to enjoy flying! raj and myself would sail through a B cert.

I got both the B's for a very specific reason, the first was for the confidence and self belief it gave me to move on to larger more costly models and the second was because it can open up many oppertunities such as attending other meetings and fly in's. I would be nieve to suggest that all the best pilots have a B cert, but now I can if I want fly one of my nice scalers on the Nationals flight line and that is something I have always aspired to do atleast once ...

Ive met many other pilots up and down the country due to having the B cert, joinging others for there open days - for me they have been most valuable networking etc etc

Just my opinion of course ...

Raj 'is' a very confident Pilot ...

Scott.

personally i have witnessed some poor unsafe flying from b cert holders but i still feel if you want to or intend to fly a turbine model in the UK at a public show or at a club you should have one,

Your project will be starting soon then, the pipes were from motors and rotor mate.
