    Another Skymaster Viper

    Yep sorry if you guys are getting bored of them by now, but I am still loving these great models. This is one we are just finishing off as a Turn key for a customer overseas. Part of the service is a test flight, shakedown and set up service.
    All pretty high spec ( as per customers request ) Jet Cat P-160Sx, JR DSX 12, all 8411 and 8711 servos,Lights, Smoke, Airpower valve. Two of the new 1/4 scale pilots etc etc. All going well so far apart from the need to increase the venting to the main tanks.
    This one is so good that I might have to keep it for my own demo model and do another one for the customer??
    Regards Al

    RE: Another Skymaster Viper

    They are the fillers for the smoke and fuel.
    I have just started using them again and hoping that with some regular oiling they should not stick. I hope so as they are a much neater way of filling liquids..
    Ron, Thanks for the compliments on the colour. I kinda guessed you would like it. I am thinking on the next one I might use the same scheme but play around with colours a little.
    Regards Al
    Thanks Hector.

    RE: Another Skymaster Viper

    Cheers Ron,
    Yep we tried to get it a good a blend of neatness and practicality. I have seen a few installs now where if something goes wrong or needs to be accessed it becomes a nightmare to work on.
    I even thought about cramming a P-200 in it for laughs, but decided to leave that to you Arizonian's

    RE: Another Skymaster Viper

    Do it Joe.
    Your USC one is just too nice to fly every weekend. Get a stock scheme beater with a P-160SX. Keep it light and simple and you will love it for an everyday plane that flies superbly. Resist the urge to put a P-200 in it ( You already beat Ron in the Pi$$ing comp with your smoke fluid holding power ) Hell.... let me know and I will get a turn key assembled and test flown as well Ali Spec!

    Ron. I know I will never be anywhere near the same league as you and Joe for bragging rights. I am just the kid that likes playing with nice toys. having said that I still say you should get another two beaters. That way next time I am over you and I can have a little bit of Viper Reno! I just know you must have the connections to get a few 1/5th scale pylons made up Shall I tell Jason to get the kits sent to Wayne now

    Ali,
    I will get that viper, but just to up Ron, I will get the new AMT Titan, I think that has 80lbs of thrust. (JK), you are right, I need something that has no scale items like my USC has, just fuel and fly. I have a Jetcat Titan that I will use. Joe C!!

    RE: Another Skymaster Viper

    Hi Ali,

    I was at California Jets this year and I saw your Viper Jet in action! out of this world, your skills as a pilot!!! simply superb! I was telling my friends here in Northern California if I have to choose between watching a show of the Blue Angels or to see you flying your jets I go for you! I was so impress, that I decided to go for the Skymaster Viper Jet same colors as yours! LOVE IT!!! It was a pleasure to talk you at the event. I am the guy who flies large ΒΌ scale turbine choppers. Next CA jets I would bring the Viper and the chopper too.

    Thank you for the inspiration and looking forward to see you again,

    Gonzalo

    they look like the ones i use on my flash, even have them between the wing tank/main tank/vent, I've had no problems with leaks and it's allot quicker connecting/disconnecting the wing tank with them and once the wing is disconnected just snap the vent/fill together and it's leak free too. also when filling i disconnect the wing tank from the main and fill it first then hook it back up before filling the main, with only air being pushed out of the main into the wing tank it puts less stress on the main tank when filling it.
