    Very nice, and interesting how you have recessed the electronics inside the board. What's under the hatch?

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon

    How are you supporting the orbit and rx? Looks clean.
    Also, how close is your pump to the rx? I'm working on an install now (not a t38) and the ecu is a long way from the rx but the pump is close to the rx. I'm thinking this needs to be reworked?

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon

    My fuel pump is approx 150mm away from Rx. It's always good practice to keep the two fairly well separated even tho the electronics today offer much better suppression than years ago. Unfortunately electricity/magnetism don't always follow the rules, so why risk it.
    Rx is supported by a sub-tray which is screwed to blocks underneath the main tray.

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon

    Engine Bypass and Engine:
    The supplied by-pass duct in my kit is huge, it could easily house a 180 class engine. To get it to fit in, it needed to be modified which is engineering speak for butchered. A slot needed to be cut at the 6 o'clock position to clear the forward engine former. With the duct sitting in position I applied heat to the upper area of the slot just cut and remolded the sides of the duct to clear the former. PITA really, but as the nain wheel wells are positioned at the intake area, the by-pass duct is necessary.The tail pipe bellmouth is silicon mounted in the rear of the by-pass duct then the very rear of the by-pass is cut down to expose the bellmouth spigot. The tail pipe align's to this and is retained by the straps secured to the bypass duct.
    The engine I chose to use is a Kingtech 140F which fits perfectly and aligns nicely centered to the tail pipe. The ECU, Valves and Ball Valve are mounted to a plate on top of the main tank. It could have gone further forward under the canopy but at this stage I was starting to get a little concerned of nose weight, anyway it looks ok where it is and is practical.

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon

    Just about complete, with engine runs done, radio programmed and minor tidy up work complete. I did also add a better canopy locking method to guard against the single hatch latch failing in flight.
    At the moment no extra ballast is needed and the test flight will happen as is.
    On the ground there is no better words for it than "Sex with Wings" Thats what I think!!

    Hey Phil,
    When do you get time to build so quickly and neatly
    and still mow your grass?
    Can't wait to see it fly.

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon


    ORIGINAL: kevinthoele

    I have been flying my Skymaster T38 for a couple years. They fly and land wonderfully nose high. The elevator stick is now almost full up on touchdown. With RTI motor I have shot the T38 at 198 straight and level flight. It is a real pleasure to fly.

    Good luck with yours!
    Kevin, is the RTI turbine 28lbs thrust? I have my second the F-5e done by a different company. In the first, I installed a Rhino thinking that's what was needed to get blistering speed and vertical performance. But if a 28lbs unit will do the job, I may need to change my plan for this new plane.

    RE: Skymaster T38 Talon

    Yes it is a 28 pound class engine. Plenty of power. The new Kingtech as spoken earlier I think is perfect. That will give 200 top end and still nice landing speed

    Lots of pretty carbon fiber!

    I've always been worried about carbon fiber and radio interference. I prefere the carbon fiber looking stuff that Todd sells.
