Did you do anything special to get the new hole level with the airfoil? Or just eyeball? Also, does anyone know who makes a more scale rotating set of main landing gear for a 92" long F15 like this? Skymaster's is too small.

Wow youíre showing the way. I have to fill in those big DF Chester holes too. I see youíre not going with rotating main retracts?

Ya no rotation needed, the jet is never close enough to see them rotate

Well its fiberglass time, I normally use 1/2 oz cloth for my wood builds, but I wanted to add more strength in these foam parts, so I used 3/4 oz cloth, (Pluse getting 1/2 oz cloth is getting hard to find),

I did my uselly process I got from my buddy Mike Barbee, I mix my Z poxy (I'm being cheap I just ran out of my gallon West Systems epoxy) as required,(used one box of z Poxy for this one project) once mixed I add 1/4 of mixed amount of MEK epoxy thinner, then brush on the parts over glass. Once complete, I take a roll of very cheap toilet paper with no print on it, run it over the parts until there is not pooling or shinny areas on the parts, its amazing how much extra epoxy you can soke off that's not needed.

Default More progress on Byron F15

I lost a lot of build time to other projects, and the flu. But Iím back on the F15. I finally got the hatch cut, latches installed, and the thrust tube is finalized. Next, Iím filling in the cheater holes. I 3D printed a couple molds. As soon as the goop glue is set, Iíll flip the fuse, fill the corners with cavosil, then start glassing.

Great looking hatch there.

I finally got my K180G2 running correctly on Diesel last week, and its been sitting in my cold As grauge sinc .

I'm at the fuse bodywork and adding pannels to the wing fase but my buddy who I paint my stuff at his house is gone for the next month, so I have be busting but on my all wood 112in long F100 jet to change it up

Why are you using that Y pipe ? It is really not needed.
I build a Feibao F-15 1/7 with only one straight pipe.
Here you can see what i have done ...


And here you can see the maiden flight ...

Nice set of pictures. Do your main gears rotate? My Y pipe is from Feibao, it's what they suppy. Did you ditch yours?

Yes my main gears rotate.
The pipe is a straight single pipe made by hammer engines.
In the right nozzle is only a 20cm long dummy to make it look better from behind.

Nice, I like it. Are the rotating gears the ones that came with the Feibao kit?

Default F-15 thrust

Eagledriver, do you not feel any yaw effects with your single pipe installation?

Yes the gear is the original that comes with the kit
but Catherine from Feibao send stronger rotating pins.
There are absolutely no yaw effects. The turbine is
mounted with a angle from 3į to the centerline of the
fuselage.

This was not the first Eagle i`ve build with the single
turbine setup. They all have no bad habbits or yaw effects.
The big scratch build F-15 that was mentioned earlier in
this thread was also mine and had the single engine setup.

You can see the scratch build Eagle here ...

Close, but probably not exact. I think the Fei Bao is a few inches longer. That probably means the scale is slightly different overall, making the wings and stabs different too. Why would you ask that?

Default Byron f15

the reason I as as when I got the measurments off Catherine at fb they were exactly the same length and depth of my Byron wings plus the fins are the same measurement and I mean exactly the same so it's possible all they have done is just stretched the fuz by 3 inches but kept wings and fins ect the same as it's like jet legends f15 is same fuz length as the Byron I'm looking for a set of flying surfaces for the byron

So let me get this straight....you have a Byron fuselage, but lack the wings (and maybe elevators)? My guess is you could score an entire Byron F15, wings and all, for less money than you could get replacement composite wings from Feibao.

Here is my latest effort. Reinforcing the elevators with a heavy rib, and replacing the weak alum tube pivot rod with a solid hardened tool steel rod. The pics are out of order, but you get the idea. Once the groove is filled, then the elevators will get fiberglassed with 3 oz glass. I have some 3 oz carbon fiber on order, but I don't know when I'll get it. Glass should be ok too though.

Cutting the slot in the foam

Drill the holes for the rod

Glue the rib and rod in place

Trace the rib top surface
