Stock fuel fittings work great. I'm running a kingtech 260 and have had no issues.

Enjoy, Its an awesome jet!!!
Hi guys, I'm building my T3 and the holes at the wing clamps are not 3mm, nor 4mm. The holes for 3mm are big and for 4mm are small. I'm thinking to make them 4mm but maybe it's an imperial size screw? Does anybody know? Please help!

Thanks in advance,
Makis.

I didn't write it correctly, the screws at the wing clamps are ok. I'm talking about the hole on the metal tab in front of the wing (photo attached). Anybody know about the screw thread? Maybe is 4-40?
Thanks in advance,
Makis

Yes they're metric, since nobody responded then, I found the solution from my own. The T3 is an awesome jet, really flies on rails!!

I have a T1-Mini and I'm thinking of either getting a T1 or T3, I know there are some big differences between these jets can someone tell me the main flight characteristic differences with these compared to a Mini T1 and which one would you buy?

Thank You!!

I have both the mini T-1 and the T-1, the T-1 fly in a similar fashion just feel much bigger, both are on Gyro.

As far as the T1 would you say its more forgiving in slowing down for a landing then the Mini i guess what also im saying is it less prone to tip stalls?

Thx for your help!!

I have been flying both since 2018, I don’t find either to be tip stall prone, I do use crow (up ailerons) in the landing mode in all the jets, I can do slow pass with either….I don’t really know how else to answer this, not sure if my slow pass with the t-1 are slower then the Mini….to me all jets are slightly different and demand sometime slightly different techniques.
