RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet
Got mine today.
Seems they changed the glue. Looks like hot glue joints.
Paint needs to be sanded and cleared due to flashing here and there.
Fuse can't accommodate a DUBRO 50 oz. I got one 24oz. in, could easily fit another 24 oz or maybe two 32oz + UAT.
Retracts pockets are set up for Robart 550 or 530 size gear. Definitely requires Hysol and reinforcement here.
I don't like the nose retract plate and set up, because it limits what you can do as far as gear and doors without a major overhaul.
Also, they created a receptical for the air tank that prevents you from using about 10 inches of nose area for
weight, batteries, etc.
I also noticed that the white fuse seems a bit heavier than the black one. I'll weight things tomorrow.
The servo setup in the booms are simular to the BC50, but the 2 elevator servos now sits high on the boom near the bottom of the stab.
I thought the tail plane thickness would easily accomodate a retro fitted 8611, but I believe its a tad bit narrow.
I've built a number of balsa kits over the years and this ARF is not that bad, just needs a little TLC in the right areas and
you've got a rock solid jet. For 250, I think I got what I expected. This will make the perfect pactice and small field plane.
I'm planning on putting a turbine in one and electric the other, haven't made up my mind which.
The white one will get striped down and painted in a TBird or Blue Angel scheme.
