Awesome! That's exactly what I need! what is that plastic molding stuff you are using? Thats exactly what i need to get that scale wingtip. Where did you get the Led 's and controller and can they come in red and green aswell?

Thats a plastic sheet I bought over here, some people use it in vacum form machine, I don't know the name in english it has 0,5mm thickness, and you can mold it with a heatgun, the leds and lens you can find at ebay, they are rated for 3,5v so I just conected 2 of then to my life battery, I will get a eletronic switch and put it in the gear channel, so when gear is down the light are going to be on.
I think If you want a full set of nav lights you are going to need a controler, but just the landing lights can be very simple to do.

Hi all,

sorry for being lazy but as the thread is quite long I thought I just ask.

Could someone tell me the length of the main trailing legs and the front leg.
I also would like to know what volume the supplied tank has.
And finally what is the weight (dry) of the plane? I plan to fit a VT80, which should be Ok for flying from grass, agree?

Thanks for your help. Appreciated as usual

Ulli

Hi, I know this thread is old but is anyone still flying one of these? I just picked up a kit with all the latest mods, and had a few questions. Specifically fitting the cockpit.

I have one that used to belong to a friend. I've been flying it lately - I have around 12-15 flights on it.

Ask away...

Thanks Bob,
I just got the FBjets cockpit, it's a one piece tub. Now I am not sure how everyone is mounting it. Do people glue it to the canopy? Do the just lay the tub in, resting on the fuselage opening flanges and locks down on top of it? Also there a bulk head just forward of the beginning of the canopy. The tub seems to be able to fit on top of the bulkhead cutout yet it seems like the better position is under the top of the bulkhead cutout. I've attached a photo of the bulkhead just forward of the canopy. Here's a pict (not my jet) you can see the top of the bulkhead


And it seems that the front bottom cross brace of the canopy needs to be cut way. I think the canopy will be strong enough without it but was just curious if there were any other ideas or mods on this.

My cockpit mounts to the canopy so that it fits on as one piece. This makes it easier to deal with when servicing the jet. I can't recall right now if it fits over the front bulkhead or if the bottom rear cross brace is there or not.

I'll take a few pictures of the cockpit next week after I get back from Kentucky Jets...

I was wondering what type of paint they used?
I had an interesting thing happen. I was wiping down my wing, white gloss area, using a yellow terry cloth towel one of the standard issue. It was soaked in alcohol and some of the yellow dye came off on the paint. Small spot but I've tried everything short of sanding it and buffing it. Also one small area looks like the alcohol actually lifted the paint a bit, sort of wrinkled it. Very odd.

I'm not sure what type of paint used. But I may test it. I've been using a pre-soaked wet wipe type to clean up and it doesnt seem to have any effect on the paint.

i'm itching to get the leg gear going already so i can test the pressure hold in the jet.
