Nice. Which color scheme?
Amazing machine.Incredible craftmanship.
Thanks for sharing Alex.
Congrats Pablo, looks great, good to see you at JP.
Questions about this plane:
1. Elevators \ rudder removable for transport?
2. Fuselage length?
3. Color schemes?
Maiden was great. Plane flies amazingly well.
The Electron gear was not a success however. They did not handle the weight of the strut and wheel (Intairco 115mm with e-brake) and did...
I think we all heard you the first time.
I used a 90 deg. arm drilling tool from Dremel, managed to get it inside and drill the hole.
Took some effort but it is worth the while.
I drilled a small hole through the spar and routed the wires and airline through it.
Just finished my Avanti XXL...its been a lot of work.
I did some mods:
Conversion to electric retracts - from Electron
Conversion to BF300 turbine... needed some reenforcements, as...
Been flying this plane for more than 20 flights now. It belongs to a dear friend. The shockwave is the best sport jet I ever flew. You dont have to think twice before pulling a high G maneuver or...
I did a conversion for electric in mine, just finishing it right now.
I used Electron ER-50 reveresed version, Intairco wheels and e-brakes. Needed lots of changes in the fuselage and wings,...
I just got a JR28X radio and 2 X RG712BX receivers.
I will be using Powerbox SRS, 2 receivers with the 28X, on the Avanti XXL jet.
Q: How do I bind 2 receivers, and connect them...
I cutted them open, as well as some more opening underneath the turbine. I am using a BF300 and will need all the intake air I can get.....
It fits perfectly with the fences, it is designed for that.
All the measurements were taken with the fences installed.
I have been working with Zbig from REVOC to make a good wingbag and tail bags set from them.
I measured and ordered bags set for the XXL, with the original Sebart color scheme.
This is not a mistake. Its a pure scale issue. The real plane has it also - one side has wicks on the bottom and the other is on the top. It is because the stab is perfect simetrical...
Olivier - Thank you.
I will use some of your ideas.
I receuved an email from Skymaster with a notice warning not to fly the Avanti yet and wait for a rudder re enforcement update. I guess this is...
congrats on on the maidens!
I noticed that you have cutted the bifurcated air inlets in the fuse. Why? Is it to save weight ? Also noticed that you opened the retract holes,...
Thanks scott. And please thank pablo in my name for his support during the build
I will report after the maiden.
Cockpit installed, plane balanced perfectly - did not add a single gramm of lead! Very pleased.
Air and electronics checked again, all works great and ready for maiden.
Canopy and cockpit instalation done. I think the paint and decals upgraded the interior a lot.
Canopy and pilot tub instalation.
Trimmed and glued the canopy using zap-goo.
As for the pilot tub - I decided to upgrade a little with some yellow paint... looks better now IMO.
Tonight I will...
Turbine installed - Behotec 220...
Bypass fits perfectly, great quality carbon parts.
Done. tomorrow will test run the turbine.
Few last things:
Canopy and pilot instalation
some more work:
Final instalation of the equipment...
All trays are in place, all electronics tested and works great.
I do have some issues with the evojet failsafe unit, will see...
Final check on the wing connection - robart quick air connects and Powerbox 2 servo lead connector sockets.
