As Matt stated the original had a full flying stab. All of the kits went out with a stab/elevator system. And yes the leading edge is set 1/8 lower than the molded filet.

So that picture shows a real bad warp on the canopy hatch. I am guessing both the front and back edges are lying on the table. You might try to heat the entire hatch with a heat gun and get it to...

I doubt this will matter...

The 220 RXi beats the 200RX hands down in output as well as installed weight. It is a bit over 1 pound lighter, more thrust. My 220 RXi was a cool 57 pounds of thrust on the stand when I tested it....

The larger wing on the Viper was with the A/B model blocks 5, 10, 15, and 20's. It was 21.5 inches longer than all C/D block 25, 30/32's, CG/DG block 40/42's, CJ/DJ block 50/52's. That wing was 31.0...

Yes Vin, at 125K the P120-SX would hit 30 - 31 pounds. I am sorry, I was thinking the traditional 123K.

Paul,

The thrust figures listed by Vinny are for the latest versions of the P120's, mainly the SX version. If your engine is indeed 14 years old and has a serial number of under 1400 I would guess...

Free manual for TamJet/BVM F/A-18 Super Hornet kit

In going through a couple of drawers I found this manual. It is of no use to me and maybe someone out there could use it. Guessing shipping would be around $5.00

Let me know.

1/5 Skymaster F-16 nose wheel steering

Ok guys, what is the secret? Does not work worth a crap. How do you bleed the system? I am sure that is what the problem is.

Someone out there has had to have had this same problem.

I believe it has a lot to do with the wing and cube loading of the aircraft. The Mibo lives thru this without any real issue. The Skymaster is smaller and very heavy for it's size in this airframe...
