    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Anyone know if digitech are still going in the netherlands, im trying to order the trailing links but having difficulty getting hold of them. Anyone got any suggestions on an alternative.

    Basically im using spring air 101HD retracts so the mounts are 9.5mm for the mains and 4.78 on the nose.

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Jetbono, it all depends how you fly, if you fly flat out your endurance will reduce a lot. I fly in a spirited fashion but not flat out all the time like some people. My home made engine runs at a conservative speed also so not as thirsty as some. Endurance is something you work out after flying for a while and getting used to the model. To be honest 8 to 9 mins is adaquet time for me, especially in the winter when you cant feel your fingers and your nose is running.

    I agree , I took that into consideration when I said around 10min .. I certainly didnt expect 10min flying at full beans , just like you I also like scale flying which is much more glamourous and and real to me ..

    Have you tried ordering off their web site? Sandor is still posting so I assume he is still around.

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Hey guy's

    I'm still here, but haven't finished putting my falcon togerther just yet[&o]

    My order came in recently from tower so i have the bit's and pieces i needed to complete the servo installations, I have bought a set of new, unused retracts/wheels/breaks and that was just posted out of the US so it should be here soon, so all i need apart from extracting the digit, is to get the final fuel tank configuration and installation done, and order an R/X. so i hope to be posting some more pic's soon

    Thanks

    dave

    Finishing up more work. Got 1 wing wheel well done and the whole bottom wing puddy'd. Just a touch of light sanding and it will be ready for glass. Sanded down one of the booms and filled the low spots.

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    I am going to buy one of these. Just a quick question before I do. I see that there are listings for Falcon 120 planes and Super Falcon 120. It appears that they have the same specs and are the same plane. Is there any difference between the 2 or are they the same? Thanks guys.

    I think they are the same. I know mine is technically a Super Falcon 120 but I just call it a Falcon 120

    Madfreestyler Take your jet engine and strap it to the rear of the fuse where the IC engine was supposed to fit, and then fly it, simple as that. Dont really understand the comment about head scratching?
    There are 120 something pages of mods and info on this forum or did I miss something!

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Thanks guys, didnt mean anything by it, just meant that there are a fair few mods if you read through all these pages, maybe it came across the wrong way. I guess im the only person in the world that scratches my head when building ...............

    p.s JB i would go through this thread start to end and not just strap the turbine on and fly it, 120 odd pages of discussion on this airframe is definitely worth the read, theres a fair few things that need doing (my opinion) most people in here seem to concur...... Does take a while to go through everything hence my comment about video, still i guess it was a stupid suggestion and no one would have watched it [&o] The company i purchased mine from also supplied a jet conversion manual that was quite useful, plus i called them when i ordered it and they advised on a few things that they would recommend doing for turbine use.

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Hey madfreestyler, if you have a jet conversion manual, why not post it up on this forum for everyone to have a browse. I havnt seen any conversion literature.
    Ref my comment on strapping an engine on and flying, yes this is what i did, flew it with the foam wheels and the wire legs supplied in the kit with a coke bottle fuel tank. I needed to fly, with as light as possible airframe and simple, so i could make adjustments easily. My engine was home made, dialed down low thrust @ 12 pounds, and we didnt know if the engine would flame out in flight and i had never flown a jet. I flew several times just like this, then modded my plane to how it is now. If you want to get airbourne quickly it will do the job as it is, but dont over stress it, fly scale like, sweeping manouvers and its fine. Checking wing ribs for missed glue joints etc is standard stuff for any RTF plane you buy.

    RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet

    Hey T, too late for me, most of its done. Had an email of Digitech yesterday so just need to order my trailing links and im nearly there. Not sure if i can post the manual as i guess copyright is owned by the producer. Can summerise all the mods though i guess that wont hurt, most of it covered in here anyways.

    Biggest job left to do is the canopy, im not an old school builder so doesnt come as second nature, just need to get on with it. Hopefully ready to fly in the next couple of weeks. Have also been experimenting with landing lights, think i have found just the job but need the u/c to work out how im going to mount them. Look really good from the air on a test rig. Ill try and get some video on the next flight.

    Hey JB

    Ive got a PST600r, only done about an hour from new, hopefully will be just the job. They are supposed to pump out around 14 1/2 lbs, Got the xicoy full autostart as well to make life easier. Had simjets in the past which have always been good as well.

    Still PST, they have recently moved to a new facility. They have a support forum on RCU in the turbine clinic or their homepage is here http://www.pstjets.com/, not sure who their rep is in the UK, maybe IAD.
