    F-117

    Jay,
    I built Parker's F-117 a few years ago. It flies well and always attracts a lot of attention at the field. I thought that it was a bit small so I blew up the plans to a 48" wing span, and...

    Mylar

    I've used mylar to make replacement Byron thrust tubes with excellent results. It's much stronger than lexan. You should be able to get drafting mylar anyplace that sells drafting supplies. Also...

    Jet 90

    Ragz,
    A friend did that to his. The Jett 90 really made it come alive.
  5. Eureka Byro blaster Enforcer finally finished

    SP,
    I did the changes you mentioned to make the pod lighter.

    Jerry,
    Polyply is basicly a thin sheet of fiberglass. It's available in thicknesses from .005 - .020". BVM uses it for various...
  6. Eureka Byro blaster Enforcer finally finished

    Jerry,
    Here's a couple of mods. I'm doing to mine that you might want to consider:
    - I lowered the back of the fuse 2" to provide better clearance for the engine and pipe.
    - I made two W1's and...
  7. Eureka Byro blaster Enforcer finally finished

    SP,
    Looks good. I'm in the middle of building mine. I'd be interested in hearing how the Weston pipe works out for you. I have a TGA pipe but am considering selling it and getting a Weston.

    Try Pipe Pressure

    The easiest thing for you to do is disconnect the pressure line from the fan and connect it to the pipe. Some like it but I have never been satisfied with fan pressure. The bottom line is that it's...

    Size Matters (just ask my wife)

    You didn't say what kind of pressure you were using, but you shouldn't be using anything less than LARGE fuel tubing. If you are are using fan (or pitot) pressure you will need EXTRA LARGE tubing...

    Striping

    I went to Home Depot and bought a quart of Fiberglass Paint Stripper. I don't recall the brand name but it was the only one for fiberglass that they carried. It worked fine. I had to apply it...

    Help with my O. S. .91

    Obviously something is causing it to go lean after the engine warms up or uses a certain amount of fuel.

    I assume you used a different fuel system on the bench based on your comment. Double...

    What's the problem?

    Why don't you describe the problem you are having in detail? Perhaps someone on this forum can then advise you how to fix it.

    Weston Pipe

    I'm building a Byroblaster Enforcer. Although I already have a TGA pipe for it I am considering getting a Weston pipe for less weight and less modification to the fuse.

    I'd appreciate hearing...

    Engine/Fan Matching

    I'll try to explain the comments in my prior post a little better. For optimum performance a fan needs to be matched to an engine much in the same manner that we pick the right diameter and pitch...

    BVM Engines

    BVM use to sell a fiberglass adaptor that would attach to Dynamax or Ramtec sized inlet ducting and neck down to accomodate a Viojett fan. I'm not sure if it's still available.

    Also I noticed...

    Flyimg Pilgrims

    Tom,
    There are about a dozen of us in the Flying Pilgrims that fly jets. Our field has a 400' paved runway, and is just west of Canton.

    The Michigan Jets meet is once a year. We've been...
  18. 3/16" Struts

    Joe,
    Take your Rhom retracts, put them in a drill press, and drill out the hole in the rotating block to 3/16". I've done this sucessfully with Spring Airs. If you look at a set of 5/32" and 3/16"...
  19. TG Struts

    Joe,
    The TG struts will work fine with Rhom Airs. The main struts are made to fit over a 3/16" wire and the nose strut came with adaptors for either 3/16" or 5/32" wire. So as long as your Rhom...
  20. Fans & Struts

    Joe,
    Which fan will give better top speed depends on the plane. The Dynamax was designed when 60 to 77 sized engines were all that was available for DF. On the other hand the Ramtec was designed to...
  21. PPG Paints

    DF,
    I used PPG Delstar acrylic enamel. I picked out the brightest white and the brightest red I could find. The red is Porshe Guards Red and the white is Toyota Super White IV. The paint store...
  22. Good Choice

    The TG F-15 is an excellent chioce for a first, second, or third jet. I just finished my F-15 Pro, and will have to wait until spring to fly it.
    You can make it look very scale. I put functional...

    Set Screws

    Craig,
    Also put a flat on the shaft at the retract block. Those set screws can't take a lot of torque and don't hold it well. Another thing that helps is to throw away the set screw and replace it...
