Looks great! Good luck on the maiden, I need to maiden mine in the next month or so with a Mercury too--let me know how that works and maybe where you end up. You can PM me if you want

Default T1 Maiden

Well, the maiden was done on N109JM on Saturday. I've been flying 31 years and have maidened 100's of aircraft both as a hobbyist and professional pilot. I can honestly say, I have never been more nervous. Hindsight, there was no reason. The plane flew beautifully. I have it currently balanced at 260mm (center of the wing tube) and I feel it's still a little nose-heavy but very comfortable. I have a few clicks of up elevator (also leads me to nose heavy) but that's all the trim she needed, at least for flight 1. I actually registered N109JM as the tail number for this jet with the FAA which is pretty cool. It's my wife's birthday and her initials.

Setup:
Futaba 32MZ w/ dual 7108 RX
Savox 1270 TG Servos throughout
Powerbox Mercury with iGyro and GPS
KingTech 140G2
Electric Gear
LG15 Gear controller
Weight: 30 lbs. on the nose

I'd like to say thank you to Dirk at Pacific R/C Jets, Archie Stafford for guiding me through the process, and Dick Mundee whose help with the fuel system and plumbing saved me serious headaches.

Scott

hat Mercury gain and speed factor did you end up at? No rush, but I am wondering ......

I didn't get out to the field until late so I only put the maiden on it. I plan to put in as many flights as it takes (maybe 10?) to have the CG set the way I want it, expos, etc. without the gyro. Then, once it flies the way I want it to perfectly, I'll set the gyro. I guess that comes from pattern. I'm not use to flying with a gyro but I'm gonna try.

Full disclosure - Dirk taught me a valuable lesson. I didn't know this at the time. When I first fired up the turbine, I couldn't get above 60K RPM even though I programmed the new radio to the ECU. I called Dirk and explained. He stopped me mid-sentence and said "Are you running the silver filter that comes with the engine?" I said "Yessir". He said "Is the cap facing the turbine or the UAT"? I said "UAT". He said that was backwards and that the cap should always face the turbine or downstream. Turns out that by putting it in backwards, the filter collapsed. My buddy, Dick, had a spare one. We replaced it and it spooled right up. That took about 2 hours to figure out and fix hence the 1 flight. Going to try to go this weekend for more flights.

Default Xicoy Digital Weight & Balance CG Meter Settings for T1

I'm thinking about buying the Xicoy CG Meter. Does anyone have the settings for the T1? I don't have the meter, of course so, maybe this is super simple to get but I thought I'd ask anyway.

The Xicoy CG machine finds the CG by referencing the CG to the position of the main wheels. You'll need to enter the distance between the main wheels and CG point, the distance between the front wheel and main wheels and the distance to the point where you'll add/subtract weight. All this is laid out on the graphic display and that makes it easy to understand.
I set my airplanes on the bench and project the various points to the bench top using a square and straight edges. Then make the entries.

Its best to go thru the procedure yourself , because there may be variations between your model and others.

I used to do this with three digital scales, a tape measure and a pad of paper. The Xicoy is a nice luxury.

Also, if you go with the XiCoy, suggest you get it from Woody at Ultimate Jets. They calibrate all their scales, Oli has published an advanced operations manual and get the Blue Tooth adapter so you can use your cellphone makes it easier if for no other reason than the bigger screen on the phone.

How funny. I didn't know this until you just mentioned Woody. Woody is the president at my club field but I haven't really talked to him and had no idea it was one in the same. Two and two really do make four! Thanks Zeeb.

Ditto, I got mine from Woody several years ago and never looked back. I use it all the time. I love the real time feedback that allows you to move stuff around as you plan the best layout for equipment. Also allows you to see the effects of fuel burn if you put fuel in and out on the scales. Highly recommend the Blue Tooth version as the screen on the iPad or phone is much bigger. Plus the set from UJ came with a cool carry case.

I have the number in the shop iPad for the T-1, but the system is precise only if you do the exact measurements with your jet once ready to do the weight and Balance, I used a long ruler (1m) and laser to find the exact measurements points…probably more then required

Hi guys
I have a T1 jet with air gear. I need to change the brake hub. How do I get the old hub off? It looks like it's pressed on but I want to be sure. Thanks for any help.

I have a new one here to replace the old one and it doesn't have threads anywhere. It looks to me that it has to be pressed on. But I have tried putting some pressure on it to try and get it off and it's not budging. So I want to know how it's suppose to come off so I don't break something.

The one I have is from 2017 and it wasn’t press in for sure…maybe someone with a more recent set will pipe in…if your Facebook, hit Shane Yang he’s the JP dude….he answer fairly quickly..

Definitely the best flying airplane I’ve ever had. Mine had P-120. Then I installed a Jet Central Cheetah. Way too much power. Probably put back the Jetcat and use the cheetah for a bigger airplane later.

So i figured out the wheel shaft unscrews from the strut and that is how you get the brake drum off. Just FYI for those wondering.

Hi guys, I had a "technical break" for a few weeks. I caught a beech pole that marks the / start-end / runway. The only one within a few kilometers. I finished the repair yesterday. I wish you a nice rest of the season, no accidents. ***winter***

Winter,

Just WOW! Please move to the USA in case we need you for amazing repairs. My friend decided to taxi into a pole with his T1 (actually the jet would not turn in the grass causing this). The jet canopy was destroyed along with a big hole in the wing. You obviously would have no issue making it look brand new. Amazing work, sir.

Been reading the manual to begin the process of un learning the JR logic and acclimating myself to the Jeti logic.

I switched to Jeti 3 years ago after running JR for over 20. Love Jeti and can’t really see myself ever going back. I was one of the first in my area to make the switch and now there’s quite a few Jeti flyers.
