Default Introducing the Top RC Model Odyssey - New sport jet - build thread

Hello guys,

I have acquired the first Odyssey sport jet to arrive in Israel by Sky Toys.
Top RC model is a very well known company in the scale RC prop planes field, that recently started producing jets.
once i saw this jet at Jetpower 2016 in Germany, i was hooked! it is simply gorgeous and the price was hard to beat!
The quality seems up there with the best of them and so is the finish, everything seems very lightweight!
Jet comes in a variety of colors and i understand there might even be an option for custom schemes.

so, i will make a build thread about this exciting new jet and will keep you guys updated with anything i find while im at it.

The jet's specs:
Length: 2320mm/91in
Wing Span: 2190mm/86in
Turbine: 10~14kg turbine
Radio: Min. 9 ~ 11 Servos required

Description:

1. Full composite construction.
2. All surface prepainted,decals applied and clear coated
3. Scale cockpit included.
4. Detachable main wing, fuselage and tailplane & vertical fin for easy transportation;
5. Removable hatch on fuselage for easy access into the plane and change accessories;
6. Functional flaps for smooth landing.
7. High quality CNC Alu push rod included
8. More than 95% assembled complete in factory.
9. Tail tube and fuel tank included.
10. Electric landing gear with electric brakes.



i am going to be using the following gear on the jet:

- ATJ 140 SV turbine (LOVE this engine!)
- Blue Bird BLS-3507 brushless metal gear high torque servos
- Emcotec DPSI RV Mini 5 power system with redundant lipo batteries
- Cortex Pro gyro

- Futaba 18MZ for control

Some pics as it is "Out of the box". and im attaching a copy of the manufacturer manual.
Thanks to Sky Toys for making this exciting kit available locally.

Looks good and pricewise beats many others.

Do you think using 220SV with reducing rpms would do fine with this one? To save money by using same turbine for several models..

Of course its possible.
Idle thrust will be high, but thats manageable, and otherwise should be fine.

Hi I3dm, I am going to follow this build thread. Can't seemed to open your thumbnails for the phots you uploaded. This jet looks a lot like Sky master Dragon, wing tips are different but even the formers look like they are in the same location. You mention the tail surfaces can be remove for transportation. On the Dragon you have to remove the thrust tube. On this jet are the removal screws external ? And are there main landing gear doors ?

Subscribed. This looks very interesting.
Can you post some images or video or the landing gear once installed and operational. The gear looks too low for this size of aircraft. Also what type and size are the tanks supplied?

Landing gear definitely not too low, i will make a video of them operating soon...

Looking nice - good images. Look forward to seeing more updates. Also let us know how this compares to the T1 Fortune jet.

Glad to hear the pics worked this time! I will keep everyone informed of progress during the build. i am hoping for a quick build (depends on my spare time, which is not a lot).

i can already tell you its completely different from the Fortune / T1, in almost every way, different design, different size, different building technique etc.

Here is a demo video of the electric landing gear as they came out of the box - very cool controller with Red and Green LEDs, manual button for non RC operation, and a stepped operation - impressive !!
