    RE: Nitro models pusher Bobcat?

    Hi Xairflyer,

    Not flown it yet but I’ve set spoilerons as GSK recommends. These will through increased drag reduce speed as well as reducing lift. I’ve used spoilerons on previous planes...

    RE: Jetlegend T-45 Hawk

    Hi Guys,

    Please note that the current production fuse is somewhat lighter than the one I reviewed in RCJI.
    Perhaps someone with a new kit could weigh the fuse?

    Hi Jase,

    Yes, I’m flying my T45 with the tailpipe/turbine set as in the pictures. I have approx 100 flights on her now. The pipe incidence effect (if any) is not a problem or even noticeable....

    RE: Jetlegend T-45 Hawk

    Hi Nicola,

    We need someone who's actually tried a T45 off grass to comment.

    If the grass is short, the ground dry and hard I would imagine 18.4 lbf would get the T-45 airborne.

    I have...

    Hi wing13

    I'd recommend you balance level at 120 mm back from the LE at wing centre.

    RE: Plumbing Two tanks in my Hawk

    Hi Dennis,

    My 2p's worth:

    Plumb tanks in series using plain metal clunks. Use a proper BVM UAT not a central pickup header (everybody’s mileage varies!).

    Include a BVM or Festo...

    Hi Flying Arrow

    The separation distance that I have now between the receivers and the rest of the install must surely be OTT.

    Yes it is. My Futaba Rx was fixed at a similar distance from ECU without any range or interference issues.
