hey Joe,

I'm using a mega 2t on a 3s2p 4300 Tanic lipo pack..

it goes in under the canopy and as far back toward the intake ducts as I can get it (almost rides between them )..

it rides on it's side with velcro on the bottom of the fuse ,and some straps

my cg is around 82-85 mm as opposed to the recommended 90 mm. I can live with it as I 'd rather not add dead weight .

nice flyer !

good luck ~

Hey Guys,
Just working on my Sniper and getting near the end. Can hardly wait to fly her. I thought I would pass on this building tip I found while trying to make the wing servos look a little more elegant.

I am using Hitec HS-56 in each wing panel for the ailerons. As you know they stick out below the surface level of the wing. Just before tossing out a used Old Spice anti-persperant container, I noticed the nice shape of the cap.

I cut the cap roughly in half and then sanded it down to the right height just so it covered over the servos. Pictures attached pretty much show the result. I think it looks cool, streamlined and didn't cost a cent.

Cheers,

Randy Smith, Calgary, AB

BTW, I'm using Mega 16/15/2, TP3S2P 4200, Phoenix-45, 480 mini fan.[img][/img]

You will love the plane. Here *s a nice video of mine.
Best regards Rico

Nice idea with the wings I used very cheap servo covers for sailplanes.

Here are a couple links to micro turbines ... take a look and see what is there and note many are still in development. Also, you may wish to check in the Turbine forum as this EDF forum is less likely to have much in the way of response.

Toki Micro Turbine still in development...no website

http://www.jethangar.com/ These guys have a 7lb thrust Wren 44 mini turbine that may work

that sniper on 4s with 3600-3800kv, ( check out mega motors edf16 or 16/25/1.5r ) will really make it move out better then 3s

heres a pic of my phoenix. its a sporty like the sniper but way slicker and much faster

Do you have the instructions for this plane?

I came by 2 of them at a swap show and there are no instructions.
Thanks,

Chuck
