    Square Nozzle, interesting feedback, thanks for the input. I don't recall ever hearing of a gyro being praised as a means of salvaging bounced landings, but I'm glad it helps in that respect too. ...

    Johnny9390, I was hoping somebody would reply to your question "Has anyone put a gyro in their reaction?" I, for one, would be very interested in hearing about how a gyro might help out in flight. ...

    Chic (redtail), your X-54 Reaction is definitely a cool-looking machine! Very creative mods and I like the X-54 theme. I do have a concern about your custom inlets - they look small to me. They...

    Congrats on your first flight, Johnny 9390! I'm surprised you were able to remove so much nose weight. I have no doubt the plane flies well with an aft CG at normal flying speeds. But that same...

    Jim, that's a terrific tutorial, but I think you're reaching a very limited audience. I think you should start a new thread so it can be shared with the entire jet community.

    Johnny, I don't know the answer to any of your questions, but it seems like they are all related to your PST turbine. Did you get a manual with it? Tell me which PST you have - I may be able to...

    The stainless steel sheet should be positioned directly above your turbine, mostly to protect from residual heat rising off the turbine after shutdown. Epoxy it to the bare balsa.

    I don't know. Looks like a nice, neat hole to me. Wouldn't expect it to cause any problems in flight. Little draggy, maybe, but you weren't planning on having the fastest jet out there, right?

    Ah, thank you Joe. It's nice to know it's "out there" if needed down the road. Maybe somebody else will chime in before then, but there's no rush. Take care with the move and try not to stress...

    Matt,

    Ah, I get it now. It's not the servos that impinged on the tank compartment, it was the push-pull cables. You re-located the servos so the push-pull cables would be out of the way, and you...

    I like it! Always been a sucker for big, bold color patterns with high contrast. Should be great for visibility and orientation. Plus it's Golden State Warriors colors - gotta be a winner!
