    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    I ordered a new front strut from folts, who makes the struts and brake for the shockjet. He said that he hasn't had any orders for awhile for the shockjet....

    I think these are the biggest wheels I have seen on a Shokjet yet:

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    My buddy tried to follow my Shokjet with his FPV plane, which proved more difficult than one would think. His plane is 40 mph WOT. On the second flight I went to full flaps which helped a lot. Actually, he said I was going too slow that time. LOL.
    Here is a screen grab and a link to some video.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    Nice video, Randy. The only on-board video I ever shot from my SJ was the maiden. It was also MY first jet flight. I guess I should upload that video one of these days...

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    Any problems with running a Y-harness on flaps and the ailerons?

    I would like to save a couple channels for brakes and a smoke system!

    I'm using a Spektrum Dx7
    Thanks

    I don't think there's a problem as the manual calls for Y-Harness for flaps, ailerons and rudder/steering.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    I run a Y on the flaps but don't think I would want too on Ailerons. I have done it in the past but with the new larger radio's of today, I don't Y the Ailerons.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    I had a problem with using a Y on the flaps because they were hinged slightly differently.  The gap on one was a little larger than the other and the hinge line was a little higher causing the deflection to be different.  I tried to work it out mechancially but gave up and put them on different channels so that I could adjust the end points.

    JB, I had the very same Problem. I worked on the geometry of my flaps way longer than I should have had too. I did get mine close enough to work well. On the Ail, I always go with Sep channels because I like to use Deferential. My Shok has a tad of roll coupling and about 20% Diff gets rid of it and smooths the turns out nicely. All in all, I have had a ball with the Shok.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    I agree  - separate aileron channels for differential.

    I never did get my flaps equal in all positions (after trying for hours) and eventually had to use separate flight-mode trims to eliminate any roll with full flap deployment - which works fine.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    Hey Gruntled. Yea-the trick is to plug the factory hole and drill a new one about 1/4" farther from the hinge line. Same Prob they are having with the instructions to the new Nano of whice would like to have one of those as well. Ha.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    If I build a "next one", I will do that. For now, the electronic "fix" is good enough. 

    I had the Nano previously. It was a good airplane, but I never felt like I got it dialed in quite right and had a few hard landings with it. I got a bit frustrated and decided to move everything over the Shokjet, which has worked out better for me. Mind you, the problem was not a "nano" problem, but a problem with the way I had my radio set-up.

    The flaps and the envelope on this Shok man, if you just get them close it's ok. I understand about the Nano. Well if ya ever want to give someone a deal in itPM me!!!! Ha.

    RE: TBM Shock Jet

    Hooker:

    I sold off the retracts and the fuel tank, but I have the rest of the Nano left. The fuselage needs a bit of repair  - the nose gear block needs to be reinstalled and the wing center section needs a small bit of repair. Putting that aside, the rest is in great shape and I made a nice set of wing bags for the wings, boom and stab, etc. If you want it, I'll give it all to you for a song, so long as you can get up to Maryland or norther virginia to pick it up.

    Troy built has some photos up of the new Shokjet schemes - real ones, not line drawings. I am guessing this means they are off the boat in the good ol' USA.

    I was just looking at the new pictures and it seems the ailerons or kind of short compaired to the wingspan the flaps are longer than the ailerons.

    That is how they are now as well. The ailerons are all the way outboard, so they do not have to be huge to be effective.
