I'm running a 14x6 APC on mine.. but I bet it would pull a 15x4w like a big dog....

Well, I have a new 14-4W apc, a 15-6 wood zinger, and a 13-6 wood zinger. I'll try the 14-4W see how that one performs.

Hey IowaSilvia! We need a flight report on that bird! I can't wait to hear how your Mojo 60 flies!

Paul, I'm still thinking about that big R on my plane! (not! )

IowaSilvia I am very interested to see what your findings are on the ST 90 with the props. I am looking at buying one sometime soon as they really are fairly cheap and seem to be good running motors. I was also thinking something along the lines of a 14X4 although from experience my Irvine .61 turned a 13X4 almost too well. So I'm wondering if the 15X4 might not be a better option. Please keep us posted.

Razorback and IWOASILVIA your JO's are looking good!

I've been slacking on my two lately. I've got 1/2 of 1 of fuses covered, both wings are covered, one set of ailerons are covered and I'm going thur razor blades like crazy cutting this ultracoat. I should have them covered completely pretty soon. I'm keeping them pretty simple. I did my budides 40 MOJO (see picture) and we both liked it so well we are doing the pair of JO 60's the same way. A little diffirent but not much. I've got all the US markings for them as well, also doing a checkerd nose.

I got the engines on Sat and had to trim the motor mount area for the saito 100's to fit right.

So far I have 13 days into these two MOJO 60's....THEY WILL BE FLYING BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH

That looks great wagas! I can't wait to see how the Mojo 60's turn out!

I covered the bottom of the wing of my Mojo last night and started covering the top. It seems like everytime I get started on it someone either calls, comes over, or something else comes up to interrupt me! [:@] It's suppose to be raining this weekend, so I'll probably spend it covering instead of flying. [&o]

Hey IowaSilvia, how about a report on that ST90? I had one once upon a time that was a pretty good engine and might consider getting another one. I've been eyeballing that new Accel Kat 70 and thought that it might be a good engine for it.

I've got pretty much everything done. Engine intalled yesterday, all servos are in, etc. I just have to lock down the battery and receiver. But I need to see where it will ballance first. I'm still way tail heavy.

I've got the APC 14-4W on the ST 90 right now. I did some "searches" on RCU and seems like the 14-4w or 15-4w is the best for fun fly 3D type flying.

I mounted a Dubro 10oz. tank inside the wing. I hope it isn't too far away from the engine. I really couldn't find a good place on the fuse. for a tank. As the landing gear stuff is sticking out and any further and it is on the engine. We'll see how everything works. Plus I don't know if 10oz is going to be big enough. I'll have to see how long 10oz last. I need at least 10 min. to be happy.

I'll get back once I get the engine running. Don't know when I'll fly this bird. Hopefully soon, but I'm not going in dreary windy weather. I hope to keep it for more than one flight. I'll be gone from the 16th-?? for 5-10 days. My dad and I are going to Memphis. So it might be a while.

That's why I wake up at 4AM to work on stuff. No interuptions either....Hey, i'm with you on the KAT 70...ME likes alot...I got a os 90 or webra 1.20 looking for a home myself.


IWOASILVIA...Cool that the tank is in the wing...I used to do that before i got tired of not seeing how much fuel is left. BUT THEN I thought of using a very small header tank to gauge my fuel...anyway something to think about!!

OK, I didn't want you guys to think that I had quit on my Mojo, so here's a picture of what I've gotten done so far. As I said before, I'm trying to use whatever monokote I have here at home to cover this in since my LHS is 150 miles away! [>:]

Wow Razor that looks great! I like the idea of the extra drips! I have to keep that in mind if I ever have the guts to do something like that again. Good job buddy! [sm=thumbup.gif]

IowaSilvia thanks for the info on the props. I reckon I would also just have to try both. It's going to be impossible to make a good assumtion on which one would work for me because of my height above sea level. Its always a bit of a pain Especially when I have not found a single LHS in South Africa who has those size APCs listed yet. Time to make some more phone calls I suppose.

Am I going to do the stab like that? Good question! I'm kinda playing it by ear, and I haven't gotten that far yet!

It looks like a pro-twister the advertised covering.

Razorback that's one real sharp covering job you are slapping on that MoJo 60. You wont believe how much better the bigger MoJo fly's. The little one raised the bar to start with!

Thanks Ultimateflyer12! I'm sure looking forward to finishing this thing up! It seems that time to work on it has been hard to come by lately, so that's why it's taking so long!

ben beyer, I located the throttle servo inside the wing on my Mojo 40, so I'll most likely do the same on the 60. I used a micro servo with a couple of those mounting brackets from Hitec that lays it on it's side. Then I ran the pushrod through the leading edge sheeting of the wing to the throttle. This seems to work pretty well.

matt flyer, now that you mention it, it does look kinda like the Pro Twister in the advertisement! Maybe that's where the idea came from? If so, it was subliminal!

Looking good Razorback... keep it up, you'll be done before me!

Man I was making some head way on my two 60 size mojo kits then WHAM! I hit a brick wall, Ran out of some covering for some graphics I am doing and then ended working from 7am to past midnight on monday and it took me a day of SLEEP just to catch up from that...THEN a guy brings a 40% over for me to do some work on and repair....AAARGHHH I just wanna finish my MOJO's!!!!!! But hey yesterday was so pretty I took 2 hours off work early and wendt and BORE HOLES in the Sky with my 40 size MOJO (I needed to practice my tail touch to a KUR PLUNK landing... that little airplane sure can take a beating!!! Only dorked 3 times yesterday and no damage, heh heh MAN I LOVE THIS AIRPLANE, I hope it's big brother lives up to it!)

Yeah wagas, it's always something! First it was my son's wedding, then I got sick, then the wife got sick. There's no telling what will happen next! [&o] I do plan on finishing up before Houston next month though! I want to get in a few flights with it before then. I'm thinking about making a trip to the LHS this weekend to pick up what I need to finish it with.

Yeah, I met Winky at Nashville! He was under the canopy right next to me! I was sitting under the canopy with Constrctor and Gary Seelof. Nashville was a blast! Any chance that you might get to go to the Memphis PB? I'd sure like to meet you!
