    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    I have a 50oz (1.4L) dubro in my P60 Intro and timer on 6mins, took off on Sunday and forgot to re-fill the tank flamed out after 3mins so 50oz is 9mins to dry so a 2.5L tank should easily give 10mins unless you are flying it flat out all the time.

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    What do you guys think about putting a Jet Central Rabbit in the Nano? I am at the point with mine that I need to decide what turbine I want to get. I would de-tune it to around 10-12#'s of course and this is NOT my first turbine. Just looking at the Rabbit since it would be useful in other larger airframes in the future since it can go up to 20# of thrust.


    Per the Jet Central Website:

    Super Bee II
    Diameter: 3.15 inches
    Weight: 2.2 pounds
    Length: 9.1 in

    Rabbit
    Diameter: 3.58 inches
    Weight: 2 pounds ?
    Length: 9.6 inches

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Better off buying the sprint if you want to fit a bigger turbine.

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Yep the sprint would be better for that Rabbit. I would like to have a Nano for my 44 though.

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    I had to grind the mounts on the wren 70, so Im not sure it would fit. the nano can handle the motor just fine. set it up by putting stuff forward as possible. Mine has alot of thrust, and could handle a few more pounds. I was thinking about swapping in a Wren 100 for my wren 70...

    I plan to seal the gaps this week with servo tape, to lower chances of flutter. guys have super sports in them with 17-18 lb already. Im running 15lb. Its actually a blast with the extra thrust.. plenty of wing.

    Nothing like accelerating going straight up after heavy weight takeoff!!!!..

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Thanks Guys. I am going to decide on either the Rabbit or the Bee II in a week or so. I downloaded a full size Dimensional Drawing of the Rabbit and it cut it out and placed it in the fuze. It looks like it would take just a little grinding on the mounts and former at the front to get it to fit. Now I wonder about fuel, I was planing on fitting a 64 Oz juice bottle plus a UAT. I am hoping to get 8 minutes if I detune it to 12-14#'s.

    The Boomerang is supposed to be kept simple and most do this there is no need for a powerbox assuming you are using normal servos

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Guys,

    I've just starting putting a Nano together and opted for the Dubro 50oz tank.

    I'm finding that this is a very tight fit so when I have some straps or cable ties in place the canopy cannot be fitted witout really squashing things down.

    Anyone else with a dubro fitted finding this?

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    I would high recommend the Jet Tech 79 oz tank from Dreamworks... Perfect fit, and no tie downs required. I have managed to hold mine down with industrial grade velcro... fits just perfect! I am running a Wren 75 on mine and I am getting 8 minutes of flight with fuel to spare for a few go arounds...

    Best of luck!!!

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Mike
    I put the 50 oz Dubro in mine and did not find any issues with fit, HOWEVER the canopy does need a little jigging and filing out the holes to get it to fit. Some one also suggested a small amount of vaseline on the fastereners [metal bits on canopy] and can vouch that this made slipping on and off a lot easier. I did have to remove a small amount of former from the front of the canopy where the overflow pipe comes out? but as for the actual tank fit no issues.
    If you check out post 1080 pg 44 it shows DW install and mine is virtually the same [i think he copied me]

    No problem on 6 or 7 I know of. If it's the strap, you can trim the wooden stringers where the straps are. You have anything under the fuel tank between the mounting strips?

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Nothing under the tank.

    Without straps fitted, the edges of the tank just touch the 'stringers' in the canopy, and as you say I can easily trim a bit off the wood. I was just curious if I have tank that was slightly oversize.



    I have thought about fitting that Kevlar one I see listed on your site if its a better fit.

    RE: Boomerang Nano!!!

    Sorry about the above post, i have a 2ltr round tank in my Nano with little adjustment made to the canopy, but just about fits, i am amazed at how they managed to fit the 2.5ltr kevler tank in this model,running a wren 54 mk3 in mine and get about 7 minutes run time.
    will post picture later.
