As above the slat comment was not aerodynamically based they just look awesome on the 86.

I'm glad mine didn't come in at the weight they said it would. Mine actually came in at 33.5 kg wet and after flying it at this weight it actually flies and penetrates thru the air better than it would if it was lighter.
The landings are more predictable also.

I received my F86 a week ago. it will be taking me a while before I start working on it but it looks great. do any of you have some pictures of the inside after the install that could share just for reference.

Thanks

Awesome plane. My kit arrived a couple of months ago and I should be able to start working on it soon. Can't wait.

congratulations Mike, Hope to see you in September. Will you be renting out space under those wings in case of rain? I think my 1/5 86 might fit

Hi all

I started mine. The first problem was that the marking for the flap servo hatch was off so I cut through and it was right over the former. Finally with a lot of hassle I took it off. Did you face the same issue ?

Hi Greg

Could you please let me know how you glued the horns in the airlons and the flaps. There is not any filled spots so i wonder how you secured them in. I would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you.

So you mean that the place where you open your hole on the flap is hollow underneath?

Yes. Which one are the horns and how are they installed? The Airlon ones are clear how to do but I don't have any idea how the flap ones go.

thank you.

Sad that no one replied.From the date of your messages it looks that you asking two months now.
I dont own the Tomahawk F-86 but here are some tips.

Generally in a hollow surface , i use scrap foam , or pieces of sponge to stuff and create a smaller space but bigger than the hole.
I try to sand gently the bottom i see thru the hole and if possible the walls around and under the hole.
I fill it with hysol and place the horn.

The best thing is to upload for us some photos of the flap it self .
-Photo of your hardwear you have.
-Top view photo (underwing) of the flap in the wing in open and in closed position.
-Top view photo (uperwing) of the flap in the wing in open and in closed position.
-Not close up photos so we can get an idea.

Even better idea to contact Tomahawk .Im sure they will forward you some building photos contact@tomahawk.gmbh

Hi, thank you. I know the process but this is a little different. I asked Tomahawk as well and hopefully they will reply.

Hi Greg

thank you. Vernon contacted me and we are all okay. I will post some picture for future people as it is tricky.

Thanks again.

Hi Guys, a friend called me today to say that a couple of these have crashed because of the elevator failure. I don't know if it is the truth or not and he didn't know where or when. Have any of you heard anything? He was indicating that the cure is balancing the stab which does not make sense.

I think he has some wires crossed there. As you know, the Saber doesn't have a full-flying stab, or for that matter, elevator balance tabs, so I don't know how you would even "balance" it, let alone what problems that could cause (or cure).

I know that Mike lost his because of an apparent elevator failure, but the last time I talked to him, I believe he thought that it was electronics related, not any type of structural or aerodynamic issue.

Hi Bob

the Tomahawk F86 has flying stabs and same set-up as Skygate Hawk used to have. Two servos to a rod to stab. It has dummy elevators but they are glued on with fake hinges and are not operational.

Thanks, Behzad

You're right, of course - I didn't look closely at Mike Pascoe's video above. I wonder why they did that? Interesting...

As I said, I believe that Mike (f106jax) attributes his crash to electronics failure, but you might check with him (assuming he doesn't see your post and respond on this thread).

Hi Bob, It would be great if i could get in touch with Mike as i am almost done with the wings and next would be the fuse.

Hi Desert Fox 1, would it be possible to get in touch with Mike to see what he thinks happened?

thank you both.
