Default Exceed F-35

Hi everyone,

Just trying to get a build log or tricks to make sure I don't make any mistakes building the F-35. I know that it is very simple but I thought that I would ask to make sure there are no suprises.

Thanks

If your F-35 is the same as this, then lean back and start reading http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=890957

Mine is finished and I am waiting for my new 2.4 system to arrive before I will maiden it. I have upgraded the motor from 180W to 360W and I need to find a suitable cone to elongate the stock thrust cone, this is to help out when handlaunching which can be a bit scary with this model

Mines been ready for two weeks and I too am waiting for weather.

Theres a guy on youtube that fly's one with the stock aileron/elevator linkage setup but he installed a gyro, says it dampens the erratic
pitch control that's inherent in the model.

Next best thing to do is the elevator servo mod, if you didn't know, that's what the extra push rods are for, you'll need 2 more servos, the pockets are already there under the fuse, just pull out the plugs.

The Elevator servo Mod is the only thing needed. It flys great. Just make sure and check the CG and ADD weight to make up for the extra weight in the tail after installing the 2 rear servos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KRrk7sY4i4

Ditto,

I was told 1 1/2 oz to the forward bulkhead.

Still haven't flown mine due to weather.

1 1/2 ounces Thats exactly what I added to mine up in the front of the receiver compartment. Of course I added weight to the rear of the plane by adding a Jetscreamers motor Besides the servos on the tail. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KRrk7sY4i4

Gents,

fossoman, I saw your video, cool. I noticed that you painted the ends of the wings. I'm wondering what type of paint can I use of the foam. I've got some spray paint that says it works on paper, I'm assuming that it would be good for foam.

I'm just using the two factory servos, does any think there should be a problem with that, the only reason I ask is that most everyone has added the two servos for the elevators.


Thanks for the help.

So would this be a good first EDF for someone? In fact would it be a good plane for a true beginner? I have never had anything like this, but am considering buying this one. Any advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Actually the Red on the wingtips is reflector tape that stuff Light bounces off of in the Dark. Found it in the mailbox Section at Lowes. And yes I would advise doing the servo modification. Its Real tough to fly without doing that. And tough to land too. If you havent flown one of these ducted fan jets I would go Trainer cord with an experienced pilot. Oh and if you do add the servos to the rear dont forget to add 1-1/2 Ounces of weight to the front hatch where the receiver goes or youll crash the plane. its totally unflyable without the weight to balance the Center of gravity. just put the weight on the forward wall inside the hatch by the wheel rod
Happy Flying.

Not a good plane for a beginner at All. Its like flying a Missile. It goes exactly where you point it in a flash. Theres no letting off the sticks and it correcting itself like on some planes. It doesnt level itself. If you cut the throttle it will stall Fast
