I will be in the sky's today too...if weather holds. Going to do some onboard video of the tail feathers and the wings to see how they perform under stress.

Default Another T-One hits the build bench!

While at Best In The West out in California in early October, I picked up a new T-One jet that I had ordered back in August. It managed to survive being in the back of my pickup for some 5,000 km. Definitely well packaged.


Yesterday I finally had a chance to unbox it and have a good look at what I got. And I got a beauty. The build quality on this jet is outstanding. And the hardware package appears to have good quality stuff as well.


Since my flying season is pretty much over, I'll be taking my time and building this one carefully. I'll post progress occasionally.

Got flight #6 in before the sky's opened up with rain. just a short flight as I'm still trouble shooting my gear. We also tested crow and landed with no headwind. Camera is mounted to the top of the canopy!

A quick fix for the noes cone bolt.

The thread is 10-32

being the threads on the cone bolt is turned from aluminum it is soft and undersized. Not sure what is sandwich in the CF cone frame but a 10-32 bolt fits fine. So I took a piece of 1/8" aluminum and drilled it slightly smaller then you would for 10-32 tap. Then I taped it just enough to get the threads started, I want to keep it tight.

I glued the aluminum in with Hysol and once this dries I will see how the cone bolt fits, if it's to tight I will tap it untill it fits. This should do it.

Thnx Dirk!

Tony when you get more comfortable with this plane she does great knife edges and very long slow rolls. I was also doing very slow and low figure 8s with the flaps down using mostly rudder last week and everyone could not believe how slow she flies. Nice video BTW. I need to find some one to shoot video next time I fly.

This is my first jet with a strut mounted steering servo. I'm in love with that! So easy to set up.

And yes, I've applied LocTite to all the bolts on the retracts, as well as slightly trimming the trunion locks.

JB, I would suggest testing the gear to make sure it's airtight before you install it, better to know its good before you get it all plumbed!

I have yet to have a fun go for it flight as I have been dealing with setting her up and working out my bugs, I'm looking forward to taking her out next weekend and cutting her loos.

I did remove all tge led I had in the noes, probably still a tad noes heavy as every flight had more then half a tank full when I landed.

Mr McHale, that looks great!

What UAT is that and where did you get the carbon plate for the tray?

Thanks!
The UAT is from Jet Model Products

And the fake CF is from Dreamworks. I laminated it to some 1/8 ply for the trays.

I started to work on my upgrade and modification of the wing to fuselage air connectors. I'm using the BVM quic plug. Being the wing is closed and access is very limited I have come up with a plan and engineered a way to install the manifold. The fuselage side is fairly strait forward. The space between the two ply manifolds when connected is 5/16" so there is some spacing needed to get it right.

The manifold in the fuselage side will get glued in once aligned. The manifold in the wing will be held in with screws so it can be removed for service and replacement. I will be doing the install tomorrow morning.
