Funny thread [img][/img]

First a Kangaroo afterwords a Rookie and now I am building a new Hotspot also.
These delta planes are very cool.

Flying well, fast, easy to transport and a great look, and a fair price [img][/img]

Here is a picture of one of my headaches [img][/img]
I have used a lot of hours to find a good solution for the airbrake..

Here is what I did.

Fantastic plane....until my cola bottle tank leaked fuel into my RX, and it went into failsafe [:@]

I bought a new second hand one, but nearly unassembled that I need to finish up soon

Hello

A few facts about the Hotspot that some of you might be interested in.

Original designer was Andi Meier. He works at Jetcat Germany.
First kitted by Peter Liebetrau and then by Graupner. It was during its Graupner years that it became very popular.
It is still available today from airtech-jetteam in Germany.
It predates the Kangaroo by a couple of years and is still available today.
Strangely, it was never reviewed by the jet magazines, given its popularity.
Andi Meier told me once at Jetpower that the fuselage also makes for a good RC boat [&:]

Well, these planes aren´t Hotspots at all, but guess that may be relevant to this thread: The Hotcat is my slow-flying HS.. lands easy as a Boomerang, but still is a quick jet, easy on the eyes too. The other one, the SuperHotspot is a bit faster.

They also run well as r/c cars without the wings, even if they had a tendency to rollover in tight turns.

Hi Carlos, do you have a mold for the tub underneath the airbrake? Also what kind of tanks do you use? I have a 2.5L coke bottle or a fiberglass Rookie tank, both might fit if I enlarge the hole in the main spar a bit. I see lots of people using a rectangular tank in front of the main spar, doesn't this affect the CG too much?

Regards, Bart.

Any hd arm will do, just work out the geometry with a good servo. I had an air cylinder for mine.

Hi Rufter:

No, I not have the mold of box´s airbrake, but I think that you can built your own box, it is easy.

I show you more photos...

Hi again:

In my 2dn Hotspot I used 2 tanks + UAT. But I like more 2L coca-cola bottle or 2,25L Pepsi.

Carlos.

Hi All,

Here´s a photo of mine speed brake setup.
I install the SB on the belly of the airplane, for a few reason,
1-) I found easier to built it this way with a 2 simple robart HD hinge and a servo to open it ( on a bandit style assembly)
2-) The top of the airplane looks very clean
3-) I found, IMHO, that it works better then the top one, once the airplane on landing is always on a high angle of attack (delta configuration) and the top speed brake became less effective, again IMHO!
4-) The hole in the belly helps a lot the construction
5-) Also with the top SB the fuel tank arrangement is kinda o critical, since the SB take the space of the bottle.
6-) I notice on my other Hot Spots that a little nose down tendency appear once the SB was applied in landing preps.

Here´s a pic of it

A few more pics with a "low pass" of ZERO inches of ground clearance at full throttle, and by the way this airplane had a P160 SE and was clocked many time with radar gun, and or GPS inside and i don't recall to see a number higher the 470 Km/h.
I don´t know what magic our friend iiiivolution made to make 555km/h, but I´m curious to know LOL
