    Next time, try to use an external tank for start up and a timer for your flight toprevent flame out from running out of fuel.
    Glad to see that your damages were minimal. Nevertheles, check fuse and internal parts for hidden cracks to be on the safe side.

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Hi Carl,

    I struggled quite a bit with mine initially, eventually squirted some 'O' lube in the system and now I retain enough air to cycle the gear 3-4 weeks after the last pump.

    Depends how bad the leak actually is.

    You could also look at one of the new JetTronic valves - they switch off the air 15 seconds after cycling, which is a nice safety net

    I also use a gear failsafe in all my air up/down models - worth it.

    The UK dealer - zedjet.com - should be able to help too.

    Good luck,

    Dave

    Cheers Dave,

    I have tried putting lube in the system, but the leak is bad enough to stop the u/c from cycling.

    If i put side pressure on the the leak does stop and the undercarriage functions ok.

    Hi Dave,

    That explains it. Sometimes the air space between 2 ears is bigger than expected.

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Does anyone have a picture of how they did the hinges on their flight controls? This is the first build I've done where the ailerons and rudder fit inside a shelf area. I have another set of ailerons and rudder coming as I was not happy with the hinge job I did on my first set. It appears that some material needs to be removed from the leading edge of the flight control so that the hingepin can sit further in the control surface and allow the control to move without binding on the shelf it sits in. I don't want to mess up another set.

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Hi Mark,

    Orlando here!

    You shouldnt need any removal of material on the control surface. Sometimes all it takes is taking the paint under the cuff section that is exposed on the T/E portion of the wing where the control surface goes. Try sanding some paint and working it little by little to get a little more movement.

    You can always shoot me an email and I can help you out.
    marineA4@gmail.com

    Name sounds familiar and I think I might have helped you out with the sale of your F-16 if not mistaken. Correct me if i'm wrong
    I can give you more info if you'd like. My F-16 has been my favorite all time airframe at the moment.

    Regards,

    Orlando

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Orlando,

    Thanks. You are correct. You helped me late last year with some questions regarding aileron servo placement. I will try the sanding idea and see how that works.

    I have another question about the nose gear. Mine will turn 45-50 degrees to the right and stay there. But to the left, it will only go about 20 degrees and that is with constant pressure to get it there. It appears there is a shimmy damper but it is in a fixed position. Is there any way to adjust this or even it out? Or is this normal?

    Without a picture of your existing hinge job, my speculation is that there were no existing hinge slots in the control surfaces and you merely drilled the leading edges and flushed the hinge pin to the leading edge. Is this correct or were your hinges installed like the ones shown in this photo?

    You are correct in your speculation. Your picture is what I was thinking is the correct way. I saw a different model F-16 that had the hinges done as shown in your picture and that's what made me think there was a better way.

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Mark,

    With your previous description of your problem, I sort of thought that may have been the problem. The hinge pin needs to be in the center of the radius and even then, it is not uncommon for one to have to trim the skins back that create the pocket for the leading edge of the control surface. Sometimes this has to be done to allow enough throw even when the hinges are correct.
