Default Vector Flight ARF's Discussion Here

I am hearing that these ARF's are pretty good from the people who own them. Lets discuss how they fly and how they are built here. So anyone who owns one please chime in..........

Thanks,

WOOD

I have the Sukhoi and a friend has the 66"Extra and both of them fly like there on rails, Very pitch sensative and fly great. It's been the only plane Ive been flying for the past month and I'v finally started getting brave with it and really hammering it and started learning flat spins. I have not had the known problem of the Sukhoi tip stalling yet but it's bound to happen sooner or later. I've never had so much fun flying before. I love this plane.

The Sukhoi will tip stall if you use too much elevator.

Here's some good advice from John at Vector Flight for the 66" Extra 300 Plane. It has to do with epoxying the belly pan to the underside of the wing instead of mounting it the the fuselage with plastic bolts and brass fittings:


"Thank you for your message. Hope things are very well!

It is a good idea to glue the belly pan to the wing
underside. This should be done with the wing
attached to the fuselage so that the belly pan can
be installed in the correct position relative to the
wing and the fuselage. Carefully score the area of
the wing surface along the joint seam, so that the
glossy finish is removed, and then use a thin layer
of 10 minute epoxy to attach the belly pan to the
wing, making sure any excess epoxy is cleaned
promptly. Drill out two holes in the belly pan
directly above the location of the wing attaching
screws, so that the screws can be accessed from
outside the belly pan.( This step should be done
before epoxying the belly pan). Additional strength
of the joint can be obtained by covering the seams
with an iron on or self adhesive tape. Finally make
sure that the front of the belly pan is tucked in so
that rushing air cannot get under and blow it off
the airplane. Once this is done, you should not
require any additional screws to secure the belly
pan, and wing removal and installation will be a one
step process.

Good luck!!

Best regards,

John

I have nothing but praise for Vector Flight. The customer sevice has been spectacular and the planes are
very strong. Mine had an argument with a tree after a dead stick and the only danage was a dink in the LE
of the right wing panel.
Fueled it up and flew twice more the same day.
Really moves out with a TT .91fs with a 14 x 6 MAS K series prop.
I love em
