    Exactly how did they achieve the thrust improvement?

    Why is there no official announcement or mention of this on Jet Central's websites?

    Mike,

    That would work, however with 4 tanks your system restriction may start to become an issue. The fuel pump will have to work harder, might restrict your fuel flow such that you can't...

    David,

    Read post #10. Go with the simple solution. SLOW DOWN YOUR FUEL FILL RATE and your problem will go away. Try a simple experiment where you cut your fill rate in half and see!

    AKB,

    You're looking at the wrong page in the manual. The recommended CG range for the Skymaster 1/7.5 version is 290-300 mm. The 230-250 mm. range you quoted is for the Xtreme 1/9.5 version. ...

    Take it from an old fuel systems engineer. Most of the static, by far, is generated during fuel fill. That's why full sized aircraft and large trucks are grounded during fuel fill. David is on the...

    For each jug in question, pour a small amount into a glass jar and set it out in the sun. If oil has been added you should see an oily residue left in the jar after the kero evaporates.

    Looking good, Bob. You've also given me a few ideas on using my DJI Phantom to film some jet flights.

    Where did you end up with your CG? I moved mine back to 255 mm. but haven't had a chance to...

    Ed,

    We can disagree about whether or not it's a good idea, but you can't disagree with physics. Carbon fiber does in fact interfere with radio waves. That's why some radio manufacturers offer...

    That's a big mistake since carbon interferes with radio reception. You can get the same look by using stick on vinyl with a simulated CF pattern, which is what a lot of guys do.

    If you buy good batteries, maintain them, and replace them every 3 years or when capacity drops below 70%, then the odds of one failing in flight is better than 1 in 100,000. I have 5 jets. Three...

    That must be a recent addition. Several of their dealers don't show the Big L-39 on their websites. The one that they have been selling for the last 6 or 7 years is the smaller 1/6.5 one. So there...

    Cool. Do you have a list of recommended hotels. I don't think there's much in Perry or Warsaw.

    Is this taking the place of the Pine Hill Jet Rally or is that also going to happen this year?

    Jets Munt introduced a brushless starter motor about a year ago on their Merlin 140X. The electronics are all done by Gaspar, and he usually introduces new technology on his Merlins.

    Luke,

    I'm definitely interested if the price is right. My advise is to offer them unpainted. You'll need to pay yourself for the labor and materials, and some will want to redo it anyway.

    My vote would be for the F-16. The Gripen, F-15, and F-16 all have narrow gear which make ground handling tricky. If you give it too much steering input it will tip and scrape a wing, or worse. Of...
