Check with Greg Alderman at JAG RC. He should know their status.

Harlock RC website is back up, Black Friday specials of 10% off jets, so they are clearly in business, which is great news. They are also responding to emails again, albeit slowly.

I bought some JP gear and they work. Have a set of ER for sale.

Is Harlock out of Business ? The web site has been down for a long time.

No they are just concentrating on other projects. You could order one and they would make them on demand, took about 8 weeks, but I'm not even sure they are doing that any more.

The manual was a good starting point for the throws. The CG - not so much.

Oh....geeze it's been so long, if I were setting one up right now without a manual I'd probably max out the throws and set about 25% expo, and have a low rate of about 70 percent of full throw. Those live hinges on that thing don't have enough room to give you scary throw even if you max them out.

The CG mentioned above is spot on, that 90mm crap in the manual, i ran out of elevator trying to flare the first flight and got "doing carrier landing" cracks from the peanut gallery.

HI Andrew the article was very help full , I decided to install my K45 g4 in it so by looking at the pics you posted in the article help me with the placement of the turbine was also wondering the pipe that you install in the plane looks like 3 inch pipe for water heater exhaust that you can get at Home Depot is that what you installed or was that a custom pipe ? I have an Sebart Avanti turbine pipe that was thinking of installing instead but is a single wall don't feel to comfortable with it would rather use a double wall pipe , would like to know more about the pipe you install in your viper , thanks for the info .

The pipe is what they sold for the turbine conversion, they had a pipe, tank, and a wood tray to mount the tank.

For a pipe I would talk to Joe TamezÖ..J.E.T. On FB Iím sure he can do something really light, the original pipe is just a single wall pipe with no Bell
