    I would like to introduce my Tuono

    Hi Guys,

    after some more days of raining out side i can announce that my Pirotti models Tuono is almost ready to rumble
    A few more things to do and she is ready to take to the skys.

    A few facts to this model and whats inside:

    ItΒ΄s a Pirotti Models Tuono which i purchased last Jetpower fair, i ordered the model ready painted in this stage.
    Landing gear was custome made for me by IQ-hammer engines here in Germany, these are now available through them at their Shop!
    The Tuono will be powered by a Frank Turbines Golden Raptor putting out close to 20kg of thrust; fuel tank capacity around 7 liters
    The Tuono is also set up with a simple smoker which uses the turbine cumbustion pressure to put a 1,5 liter Dubro tank under pressure; controlled by a smart switch also from Frank Turbines.
    This time i have used the Spektrum A-6030 Servos which really look and perform smoothly.
    I use a Powerbox Baselog and two 3800mAh Life batteries, plus one 2000mAh Life batterie for the light system.
    Radio system is the new Graupner MC-32 Hott 2,4 Ghz.

    Thats basicly it, if got any question feel free to ask

    Very nice, thanks for posting the pics. Found interesting the way the pipe is attached to the turbine.

    Nice scheme, just needs transparency tinting and someone in the office, looks like it will be fun to fly.

    RE: I would like to introduce my Tuono

    Hi Guys,

    many thanks for your answers!

    @ Enrique: This is how we use to attach the pipe to the Turbine, always centered and always the right distance. Just two spings on tension to hold the pipe.

    @ Rob: I know she looks empty. I got the basic cockpit available from Pirotti. But to be honest, itΒ΄s a piece of crap in my eyes.
    First it will be flown like that, but i sure plan to redesign the cockpit and put a nice pilot in the office ;-)

    Cheers

    Thomas

    Classic theme. She looks awsome!
    The bitter taste of poor quality lingers long after the sweet taste of low price is forgotten.
