    RE: FlyBoyshobbies Me162 & Blohm & Voss 141

    I put 2 more flights on mine today. I have to say, this is a really nice flying aircraft, if set-up with info in this thread. No bad habits. It's rather fast too at full throttle. I set my CG right at about 6.5". Does an abrupt pitch up when the gear are dropped, but that is to be expected. Not at all uncontrolable.
    A friend took video, so I will put up a link as soon as it's posted.

    RE: FlyBoyshobbies Me162 & Blohm & Voss 141

    Hope to have mine at Livermore next weekend for their Warbird event.

    Eflight Power 60
    Eflight 80 Amp ESC
    Thunder Power 5 cell 5000MaH 65c battery

    I still need to paint the crosses on the wings and reset the CG. I removed the covering on the wings and used .007 Fliteskin to glass them. I also mounted the servos inside the wing.
    I'll recheck where the balance is now that I've done all the changes and adjust.

    Yes! Maidened!

    Got one for Christmas. Was a little nervous that it would be twitchy but after TO and the initial trim, went back to high rates (+/- 1" on ailerons, 3/4 up/dn elevator) and it was still tame. Had CG at the 6.25" mark and needed a bit of up after TO but seemed good in fight so might increase the reflex another 1/16th.

    Used a 5045-500 on 6s and seemed OK but not overly fast. Will try different props next outing and a lighter battery then maybe put in the SK3 1900kv I have sitting around to speed things up a bit.

    Looked great inflight although it was solid overcast and 46ΒΊ so didn't spend much time admiring it.

    Anyway, good to be part of the "club"

    cheers,
    Mike

    Hey guys I think I lost my mind I just built this bird in one day.

    Im useing my power set up from my Hanger 9 Jackel. E Flight 700 500kv Heli motor with 120ampHV ESC with 3300 12s set up. It pushed my jackel around 170mph.

    I also added a E size rocket in the rear with a little 5amp Brushed esc to ignite the estate rocket motor

    I can't wait to see her fly
