    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    The F-18 that I have is the new honeycomb light. The total weight dry is at around
    34lb + fuel. I will install a K-180, witch puts out the same thrust (40lb). One more question. When you
    lower the flaps for landing, do you have elavator mix to compensate for pitch changes? Flaps down, will the nose
    pitch up or down? Thanks again, Alanjets.

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    I only use my flaps when there is no wind i have to put some down in or it just keeps floating on and on if there is a wind try it without flaps first then mix some in to your liking it will pitch up its best to put a little more down elevator in so when landing u are putting a little elevator up in instead of pushing down in to get it down on the ground .It will fly nice on that engine mine is alot heaver and still floats real nice flying plane

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    Alanjets, is this for the 1/6th or 1/7th scale F-18? I just did the maiden on the 1/6th at 230mm as the factory said and it was tail heavy for sure! Got it back fine but it was a pretty touchy all the way through the flight.

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    HAHA, your right! I have two 160Vx EvoJets in this bird! Just checking to make sure. The factory said 230mm on this 1/6 and by the way it flew tail heavy, I am thinking it is closer to 210-200mm.

    Thanks

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    FB, all is well my friend. Had a great time at KY. Maidened this big bird, finally. Saw the F-14's fly a bunch...man, they have worked out the bugs on those for sure! Rock solid now! I'd give "B1 Bob" a ring on the F-14, he seems to have his in the "sweet spot" and so does James Chen's brother. There was a guy there with his in EDF (no clue why to have an F-14 in EDF) that had his flying great too. I'd run your issues by those guys and see what they say.

    best of luck to you on your projects!

    I'm building another Hawk for a friend...love that bird!

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    I have been emailing GJC about this aircraft, and he reccomended I start with Viper or Velox. I've been flying R/C for 37+ years, almost everything from 1/2A to 50% giants along with helicopters. Is this plane that difficult to fly? What are it's bad flying habits? Is 200+ feet of grass runway enough to takeoff and land? If I get it, it will be powered by KingTech 170-180.

    I stoped flying jets for 4 years and i only did 3d planes and large petrol like carf 2.6 planes then i got this f18 it is so easy to fly It realy is easy people was telling me to get something else to get back into it aswell what a load of crap, yep in the turns u have to use alittle power my merlin 160 powers it great nice big loops if u want to go straight up to the stars put a 200 in it but u will have plenty power. people think u have to be special to fly,jets special needs more like sometimes the only problem i had there was no wind the one day and i used the flaps and it wouldnt come down but i have put more down in now and no problems

    I know I'll need to buy servos and the turbine, what other electronics will I need? I want to buy all the stuff I will need to finish the plane all at once, so it will be just a matter of installing the turbine and radio gear. Thanks in advance.

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    Hello! F-18 drivers. I flew my f-18f 1/7 scale honeycomb version, this past Sunday. I am powering the jet with the new k-180 and running the engine with diesel. The jet flew well. Stable platform, no bad tendencies and plenty of power for scale flying. The only thing I had a problem with was with the flaps and mixing of the elevator. On the first flight after selecting the flaps down for landing the jet pitched down onto a 45 degree dive. I decided to retract the flaps and performed a no
    flap landing. The other two flight I flew the jet without flaps for t/o and landings. I will mix some up elevator for the next flight and see how that goes. Anyone here using up mix on the elevtor when the flaps are deployed? Thanks in advance!

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    I have mixed in elevons with the ailerons I would not be comfortable with elevons only for roll control and the deflection needed because of the flutter possibilities. My setup now is ailerons only for roll.

    RE: Flyeagle F18F

    I am flying the 1/8 f18f fb and it doesn't need anything but the aileron to control bank. I only need less than 1/2 inch up or down to hav good scale flying control.

    I know you will need more on the larger airframe but I am sure the responses will be same. It is easy to over controll this bird with to much deflection.
