I've also been back to work on my F-86 and i think it is ready to start putting some primer on it to get it ready for it's final finish. The last few pictures are my color scheme of choice.

Greg,

Are the speed brakes detailed in the plans/instructions? Nice work!

Shaun ,
This is the 80" wing span version and the speed brakes are an option that you buy and build into the plane.

Greg,

Yeah, I got the 80" part from your thread title...[8D]

Do you have any pics of the drawings or closeups of the setup you could post? I'm thinking about adding these to the little one.

More like 84" isnt it? I saw you extended the wings to match the full size you want to model... not many people notice the difference. Great job.

Hey Jack,

Sorry it is actually 86" now that you are going to get so critical about it. I did extend them by 3 inches on each tip.

I'm not critical... I actually praising your job hahahah

Wow, I did not know it was 6 inches more for the extended wing version. I wonder if you can feel that on the landings. (I'm pretty sure is negligible on normal flight)

Can't wait to see the end result. You set the bar really high with your F100, let's see what you can do with the Sabre

Have you flown one? it flies really nice

PS: big difference between 4" and 6"... haha

Jack, i have not flown one before i hope it flies as good as the hun. I've been trying to get on the sticks of your dad's and he just won't give up the box. I'm also working on another F-100 right now to so i don't know when i'll get this one done. Hoping for next year. Just alittle teaser for you here's my new Hun in progress.

Greg, here is my 80" F-86.....sweetest scale bird in my hangar......a dream to fly....CG is on the front blade spar where Jack D. recommends.....It has the Fowler Flaps and Speed Brake and is basically chop and glide from 100 yards out. I have a gyro on the rudder, but don't really need it.

I have included a video of it last month on a very windy(20+ kts) x-wind day as you can see and hear, but still just lands like a P-Cat........160SE Kero for power but never over 1/2 throttle. except for T/O.

Our field is usually very smooth, but the drought made the weed bumps stick out......still lifts off and lands rather smoothly. All that overbanking was due to the wind turbulence over our sun-fly.....it is stable as a rock on calmer days.....

This one was built by Kirk Jensen.....excellent build and paint....Now has about 30 flights on it.

I had trouble with one of the wing tanks, so none on for this flight, but like on my Hun, they really dress it up.

I have one in the basement waiting for the time to build it from start to finish. Best kit I have ever bought bar none. I have owned lots of BVM products but none have compared to is kit. I am sure that the f-100 is just as nice but just can't get hot about the dust buster inlet. I got the fowler flaps, speed brakes, opening canopy options as add ons from my family as presents. Hope to get on it next winter as I have other commitments this one.

Greg,

Those shots are great. They help a ton, thanks!

No problem Shaun hope that will help you.

Tom,

That's a great video it looks like it flies great. Mine will only have a P-120sx but it should be plenty of power for it.


Nice job of flying!!!!!!!!!

120 is perfect. We have flown the F100 with 120's a lot, and the sabre needs less power

If you ask my dad, he will tell you he feels the sabre is easier. I haven't flown it enough to decide, I know the F100 too well.

Hey jack that's all that is in my first f-100 also is a 120sx so i know the F-86 will fly great on it also.

RE: BVM F-86 80
 
120SX is perfectly adequate....I flew mine with one for the first few flights, but wanted the SX for my Super Bandit.....had a spare Titan SE, so that's how it got in mine......I have watched Bob Hoover airshow routines as well as other full scale Sabre vids, and to simulate scale flight takes no more than 1/2 throttle on the Titan and only a couple of clicks more on the 120......Fuel consumption comes out about the same.....8 minutes with 2-3 go arounds in reserve......

I like the feel of the Rhino in my F-100 especilly if I have to go around down and dirty with the slats and speed brake hanging out, but like the Sabre, my Phantom flies perfectly well on a 120.......

So i have put the F-100 off to the side for right now. I spent the day putting up a make shift spray booth in my basement and i just went down and shot the first coat of primer on the fuse.

Thanks Shaz,

It's just the beginning of a long tedious job of painting and then stuffing.
