    Rich,

    What did you use to seal up the wheel wells?

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    Hey Bob

    I made a balsa disk for the bottom and used 1/64" plywood wrapped 1 3/4 turns around the disk.
    I then made balsa doubler's with the same size opening as the hole in the wing, these were glued underneath the skin to create a gluing surface, I then dropped the assy into the hole and hysoled it into place

    Hi Rich,

    That made for a nice a nice neat looking wheel well.

    Thanks for the tip!

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    I used a plastic 'for sale' sign cut to size and formed as a cylinder. Added a few verticals pieces of wood from top/bottom of the skins in order to CA the plastic cylinderto it.
    worked good, and I'm using a Super Eagle so going fast

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    how does this plane fly with 18 pounds of thrust? I have been flying mine for 2 years with a p-120 but want to install my P-70 as I need the other turbine for my Flash. take off distance still good? I am assuming removal of the nose weight might be necessary, mine has the giant lead block in the nose. wonderong if I can leave both tanks as well for really long flight times, 3.5L and still get it in the air.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    I saw one fly with a P-70 (yellow, long nose) at Big Apple Jets in June.

    It looked as fast as my buddies with a P-80 SE in it.

    3.5 L, you must want really long flights.

    My Shokjet with a P-70 carries 93 oz.

    After 7 minutes of mixed flying I land with just a little less that half a tank.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    Hey Kevin, you saw mine fly with a PST J800R, 18 lbs thrust. Performs well for me, suits my style. No issue with takeoff distance. It has the standard 2.5L tank only, flies eight minutes with reserve.

    Also assembling another Reaction ARF with P70 and expect it to fly pretty much the same as my current one.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    I guess I did Bruce, age catching up with me, lol, going to install the P-70 for some relaxing flight time and probably leave the extra tank for longer flights. Meesh, my shockjet is the same way, going to add a bomb type tank on the bottom.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    Just logged flight #97 on mine yesterday. 63 of them with a slightly detuned Jet Central Super Eagle. Tuff bird once you fix the wing leading edge and get the trailing links on it.

    Kevin, my jet weighs in at 30 lbs, 10oz. fully loaded with fuel and smoke juice... all that is pushed around with a P-80 (22 lbs thrust). I can comfortably take off with 75% power too.

    Fuel: 2.5 L
    Smoke: 1 L

    I think your P-70 will have no sweat pushing it to rotation.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    I will finish fitting the P-70 this afternoon, trying to figure out how to remove the lead weight I glued in the nose as it most certainly will not be needed.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    My first Reaction (snub-nose) had the lead weight and I buttered it up with uncle Bob's AeroPoxy and I can see how it would be a b&*#ch to get to, you have a small challenge there I guess.

    Besides trying to drill out the body of the lead from the interior, I wonder if you'd be able to drill a small hole dead-center on the nose and tap it out with a drift pin/ rod and patch the hole later?

    .... Good luck Kev [8D]

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    drilling a hole in the nose is a good idea, could always install a fuel probe or pito tube.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    I don't know Kevin... I wouldn't attack that lead until I knew for sure that it's way too much. If it's just slightly nose heavy, it might not be worth the effort to remove. If you're using lightweight batteries (lipo, A123), you will probably need the lead.

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    hoping to use my  current  2700NiMh cells and lipo ecu pack, will drag the wing out today and check the balance.

    Bruce, do you happen to have a O ring size for the PST valves, I have one that leaked from new and replaced with a Robart valve, but need and extra valve for another project and would like to use it.

    thanks Kevin

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    Sorry Kevin, I just don't have an answer for you. Orings are one of those things I just try to match up at a car parts store or hardware store. They are probably metric, might be tough to find.

    Edgar, really sorry to hear about your Reaction. Must have been in a bad spot, because they do glide well. Reaction X is the same bird with longer beak. Makes it easier to balance. Guys really like the longer look - can't remember selling a short nose version since the X was introduced...

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    well on my way to retrofitting the P-70 to the Reaction, anybody using crow to help with landing, I have a ton of flights on it with the 120 and my only gripe ever with the airframe is that even heavy it would float on by on a slightly high approach. hoping a healthy dose of crow will help settle it in a little quicker.

    also, anybody have a size for the pst retract and brake valve o rings. I need to replace them on one valve.


    thanks Kevin

    RE: Reaction ARF - PST/BTE All-Composite Sport Jet

    Kev,
    I don't know the size... but I did have the same problem you have (Both on a BVM and PST brake unit), to fix it I didn't replace the o-rings. I slathered O-ring lube on the rings and now it's as tight (airtight) as the day it was born.

    Todd has the stuff.
