    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    It is on the bottom KC, just depends if the model is upside down or right side up in the cradle

    Did you put any protection on your stab against the heat in that area?

    Thanks again,

    Stan

    must be an optical illusion then...........................the only protection i put in the tail was where the servo wires exited the stab next to the pipe, i covered them with an asbestos sleeve and aluminum tape to hold them in place, bottom of rudder servo got the balsa cover with some BVM heat shield + ceramic paint.

    KC your picture overwriting is 100% correct. However, If you turn the airplane 180 degrees on the stand the seam is on the bottom, NO? Just joking with you.

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    When I mounted my wren, I had to shim the back of the motor up, which is really down in the rear to get it aligned down the center. I didnt think the mount and pipe were perfectly aligned.

    Turn it over... shim the airplane up until a Level will sit in the tailpipe level. then check your motor casing to see if its level... Mine wasnt.. now it is..

    Also, you may need to move your motor forward to let it draw more air down the tailpipe. Post a pic of your motor in place

    I have a little over 3/4's of an inch between the back of the engine where the nozzle attaches to the start of the pipe. I will try your method of checking the engine level with the pipe.

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    got 5 flights on my T-bird Flash now and love how it flies, 6mm crow with about 60 degrees of flap and it settles right in perfect every time. just picked up another Flash ready to fly with a Titan, I had flown this plane previously and it is what cemented my need for a Flash, now I will have 2.

    I have been flying my Flash with the Rabbit and I thought it was fast enough for my needs (my first higher performance jet) ...now I hate to admit it... I think I want to go to a big block after flying next to an Eagle powered flash, mine looked like it was standing still[X(]

    The rabbit is 18lbs correct? I am a jetcat guy. The p80se is 22lbs. I am planing to do a new ultra flash. How would you think 22lbs will do...pat

    Rabbit is 19 LBS (Next generation of Jet Central Turbine)
    Falcon is 22 Lbs (Original Series of Turbine, now out of Production)
    Super Eagle is 30 Lbs (Original Series of Turbine, now out of Production)
    Cheetah is 31 LBS and considerably smaller than the super Eagle i.e. is the Next Generation Jet Central Turbine

    22Lbs won't make too much difference, going to 30 LBS makes a difference

    Don't get me wrong when I first started flying my Flash I thought 19 lbs was insane, however now I have become used to it so now I think I am ready to go bigger.
    I would not have ever question going bigger until I tried to keep up with a 30 Lb Turbine... I just couldn't do it!

    you'll be happy with the P-80 for a while, a Flash flies great with a lil ole P-70 inside, but you've gotta have 30+ lbs to get full satisfaction out of it. with a Titan inside it will accelerate in the verticals.

    Rich,
    It didn't look like it was standing still... maybe looked like it was going backwards though

    Gotta go 30+ or you could go 36 like I did.. Verticals are out of site.

    I have a Titan in mine. I did have a P-120 in it, but took that out to use in my Hawk I am putting together. To be honest, I can't really tell the difference between the Titan and P-120.

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    My Flash Flying for the year has ended.
    On the 2nd flight I dumb thumbed the landing and need to do some repairs to the nose and the wing. Well I hope Minor.
    See here http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10089529/tm.htm
    Any help on thread above would be awesome!!!!! Please post it there not in here. I know Rich will have some good input for me here he Loves Fibergalss work

    ON the first flight today I had the plane in the air and noticed I had no more then 1/4 throttle while the stick was at full. Brought it in and noticed a Crap load of air going from the MAP uat to the pump, Hand unit also said pump limit reached????? Thats a first. I took the cap off the uat to see what was going on inside and noticed a lot of brownish crap covering almost my entire filter. I am assuming got Algae in my fuel. Emptied all The fuel, cleand out the MAP Uat filter, switched fuel cans and it started right up no air or problems at all. Until the second landing.

    Not a bad year for the flash I got 57 flights on her and I loved every minute of it I can't get enough of this plane!!!!!
    Now I am just upset because I have to go back to flying the Boomer till next spring[:@]

    John

    I have been using Kero. I also like to filter a lot before it hits the plane Maybe I am a little over board butbetter safe then sorry.
    I use the Mr. Filter in case of any water. Then my Funnel has a fine mesh filter in the bottom, Ceramic clunk in the can and 2 filters on the can.
    I looked at my filters on the can and I noticed that the one was real nasty. So I just replaced filters tonight.

    anybody have a stock pipe that they did not use, I know some people have replaced the pipe with Tams lighter version. doing all of the install over in my new flash and the pipe is a little worn, if I had a a few hundred flights I would be tired as well.

    Just got one of these used. It is actually my first jet. Aggressive but I have some help and the deal was good...

    It is the blue angle scheme.

    There have been several comments on the visibility of the rogers. Any comments on the blue angles. This is a concern.
