Hey Ted
these are actually fairly similar, parts will be a close to fit.
however to find parts of AD is probably just as difficult,
great flyer though, get er done

AD has a different way of measuring Ted, instead of tailpipe , it does end of fin for length.
some would say it's to cover up similarities as both the BVM and AD originated in Europe..

BVM Rafale was born Jet Tech, from Franz Walti, most likely you can get parts from them.

Hey Ted,
Give Tam a call at Tam jets and see if he might have a pipe you can buy.

Our Rafale MK II is actually 1/6.8 scale but we advertise it as 1/7 to make it simpler.

http://www.ultimate-jets.net/collect...fale-1-7-scale

There is nothing on the market that comes closer to scale than this one except our 1/5 Rafale...

I have a friend who had one. Not sure he ever had the Bi pipe, but may have cockpit etc. I'll point him to this thread. When I flew it we had two JetCat 160's :-)) and separate pipes.

Ted I used the cockpit from ultimate jets ( referenced above ) fills the cockpit nicely.

Additionally, despite being discontinued you can still attain parts from BV. I'm sure it will take less time to have them fabricate discontinued a/c parts than you can expect ordering similar replacements from the ARF vendors from across either pond.

Tam pipe best pipe anyway, give him a call.
