Yes, would work well.

I used 1261ís on elevator and flaps, 1260ís everywhere else. They have been solid.

Hi!

I just bought a replacement Joker, I had lost mine several months ago in a ground roll incident. Mine flew so good I just needed to get a new one, and since I have all the equipment (except the thrust pipe) from the previous one, it made all the sense in the world to just get a replacement. Yet I truly did not like the Carf pipe, when I bought the replacement fuse, the pipe was not available, so I will just go ahead and install a conventional pipe, can any of you guys share the dimension from the rear former of the engine mount to the rear fuselage oulet?

Thanks

the bell size its 139 mm on my Joker / the exit pipe 90 mm
im sure like you previous Joker you need to ad some piece of plywood around the pipe at the end. for support .

Thanks for this, but I may have not explained myself correctly, I need the distance from the rear engine mount former all the way to the end of the fuselage at the rear outlet, this so I can get the proper pipe length

Guys, my replacement Joker has arrived, Iím in the assembly process.
My previous Joker I got secondhad, so I did not assemble it, Iím the process of installing the stab servos, would like to know if anyone has used an alternate method to install the servos that will not warp the upper stab skin, any suggestions?

If you gently relieve the block to not be forced by the servo case, it won’t buckle the thin skin.

See post #812 above. I used MKS 747R servos which have horizontal mounting tabs.

Thought about that, I’m using the regular 747’s , MKS used to sell the flat “wing mount” upper cases separately which can be used to modify the regular 747’s, but not anymore, so cannot go that route unless I buy new servos
