T-one models F22A Raptor scale build!!!
 
Well itís finaly time to get building on my all time favorite plane! T1 really did this one right! This one I got is unpainted so I can add my own scheme and details for scale compitition.

The production models will will be the same as this other then the panel lines will be fixed and not so pronounced. I will fix that myself on this one. As far as the build goes I want to keep it as stock as possible but Iím sure Iíll add my own spin on certain parts just to be more scale.

Going to power it with a kingtech 260.

I really like how the bomb doors are done. The hinging and doors
line up perfect. Same with the gear doors. The gear is amazing looking. Will post more pics of the in a few days.

The thrust vectoring nozzles are cnc machined 6061 aluminum with stainless on the inside. They move very smooth and are very impressive.

Barry flew his around with all the doors open for a while at Hemet and it didn't seem to change the flight characteristics at all......

Looks like the Kracken has been released!! Let the fun begin!!! Hiep Custom Pipes has shipped your pipe today that should be a drop in fit. The quality of Hiep pipes is what this F-22 needs for optimum performance with a KingTech K-260 blowing down its throat. The T-One Models quality is absolutely second to none as you will see as Kris posts his pictures.

Will fallow your build, this one will be superb hope you will use the same paint you did on the yellow one that you have before.

Dangit where is the popcorn eating emoji when you need it! Would love to see some up close internal pics

Following this one. Maybe some day when I grow up and stop playing with toy airplanes.

Is there a twin turbine version?
not really keen on the raised panels , what do you think?

egldriver 01-31-2019 11:52 PM

wow. hope to see it at KYJ?

If you read my first post you will see that the panel lines will be fixed on the production planes. This one is preproduction although internally its the same the panel lines are thinker on mine and for me that's ok because I will fix it all before painting.

Aircraft is available in twin or single configuration. I would say twin K120s up too twin K160s. For single I would say K210 if built light up to a K320. I will have more input on the recommended single engine size after flying it. I really don't see any need to have anything bigger then a K260 even with the vectoring. During testing they flew this airframe on a single K160 with just a straight pipe but that was a bare airframe.

Are you going to fly this at Top Gun this year?

For sure brother! Will be using probably the same paint. I picked out an Alaska scheme and tailormade is already working on the markings. . Looking at the leading edge flaps they installed a bell crank system so that it has a linkage on the inboard side and outboard side that is controlled by a single servo in each wing. I hooked one up last night and held the linkage to test it out and its rock solid so should work nice. I have learned from other planes that the leading edge flaps get a lot of stress so you need a huge mechanical advantage on them for the servo so I will show how I get that done soon when servos arrive.

This plane has the formation lights and nav lights installed already so that a big plus. Lighting kit looks very nice with its own controller. The F22 does not have many lights only the nav/ strobes on the wingtips and formation light and landing lights. I do plan on adding lights to the cockpit myself but that will wait until after Florida Jets. Also want to add a moving pilot with a robot controller but it also might have to wait until after the first event.

Will be working with Sean McHale with Strictly Scale to get some super scale missiles to install in the weapons bay. I really like how T-1 added detail already in the weapons bay. Should make it allot easier to finish that part off. The bottom doors are very cool how they open. On the full scale the doors have a second hinge so when on the ground they don't hit when open. Well T-1 copied this perfectly and its the same way. Very cool looking.

Another thing on this bird is its all hidden linkages! No servos hanging out on this bird. So far most of the orders have all been plug and plays and that really is a good value for all the servos that get installed in this bird. I am waiting on a new air valve that we will be selling soon that can control up I think 7 functions. This I hope will help save channels.

The vertical stabs only have one small screw to keep them on and they have a direct drive servo linkage. That means the tail comes off very easy for transport. Only have to remove the formation light wire because the servo is installed in the fuselage.


A big challenge so far that I can see is going to be channels.... With slats flaps ailerons dual rudders flying stabs she is going to eat channels up. I only have 18 so I will find a way to make it all work.

This is my old yellow F22. The paint will look similar to this. Metallic camo paint is always fun to work with :(

After I get the pipe I will try and see what burner lights I can install.

This picture shows the serial number Raptor I am doing. T-1 was able to put a slight gold tint on the canopy already that looks great.

This plane can also be equipped with drop tanks. The tanks look pretty good and I plan on flying with them at times just to be different.

I recall this is the thread where the fascination started, it's been a while.

You can find all the technical data and ordering info at www.pacificrcjets.com . Like Kris had mentioned, this F-22 is a pre production model. The production models will have the panel lines reduced to .5 mm from the surface.

Is it done yet?

Cant wait to see it in person... 6.5 weeks or so. Redbull time! lol

He is extremely efficient on building isnt he LOL

Oh he will have it done in time...

sysiek 02-01-2019 11:35 AM

Maybe you could make the afterburners rectangle to match the scale looks with blue red and yellow ledís

David Jackson 02-01-2019 12:36 PM

Chris,
What servos do you plan to use on the control surfaces and the vectoring nozzles?

ravill 02-01-2019 12:58 PM

I have a B300F that needs a home....

This would be a great place for it!!!

gunradd 02-01-2019 02:29 PM

David will go with mostly savox I think 1256s . I have some hv 8911s around I might use for the vectoring only because I have them here now and need to have the vectoring done before I install the rear half fuselage.

gunradd 02-01-2019 02:33 PM

Got the nose steering servo installed and installed the nose gear tonight. She is on her feet now. I also attached the nose section and filled in the gap so you canít see it. https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...df5118bf3.jpeg
