Wow that is very nice. I like your shop too, I wish I could keep mine that neat.

Do you have a pattern for your radio tray that you would share?

Thank you, appreciate it. Trust me, the shop gets plenty messy haha. It helps that Iíve got two separate garages. I keep the cars and other stuff in one garage and have the other garage for my shop. I just try and pick up for 5 minutes or so at the end of the night when Iím done playing. I have a couple of work benches and the one behind the camera has plenty of stuff on it!

I donít have a template, probably should have traced the tray when I was done with it. Sorry

Dear rebel drivers..

I consider getting a rebel hot for my VT80 collecting dust at the moment...
Do any of you fly with it ?
As i have seen many of you put K70 and K85 in it so my wild guess is it somehow might even work ?

Planning to use ER30 and grummania chimney for M70.

Jure

I started my Hot build this evening to compliment my Pirotti/Krill Max which I love.

The ER30 do not drop into the existing cut outs so be prepared for some work. I actually have to widen the mounting blocks as it doesn't leave much room for the screws in the wood. The JP must be wider units.

Dave may I advise running some heatsink over the exposed wire as it extends down your strut to the wheel? Years ago I severed a brake wire on a Paritech Natrix at the articulation on the strut and, upon further inspection, nearly also severed it at the retract base. I haven't had an issue since I added heatshrink to extend up the strut past the retract base into the wing.

I also received conflicting hardware from CARF. I have 3mm rod, but M2 clevis ends. I did not receive the rudder hardware shown above. Can anyone confirm the correct size threaded rod for this model? M3 or M2? Im planning an X45 setup like Bob.

Thx!

My Rebel Hot came with 2mm control rods and clevises. My kit had all single horns mounted in. Looking back at the photos it appears some of the earlier kits had double horns.

My kit came with M3 throughout. Though I changed some to 2.5mm thinking of the grams...it almost certainly wasn’t worth it!

If the wire does not flex over to the tyre it does not need heat shrink, I always exercise my legs over full compression to see what the wire does.

I gave out wrong info. My kit came with 3mm rods and clevises. I did use a 2.5mm ball joint for the rudder.
Good luck with your build.

Hey Everyone - Just picked up a new Rebel Hot kit! Read the entire thread and still a bit confused as to whether or not MKS HV747 servos will fit in the horiz stabs without modification....Several posts mentioned 35 x 15 as being the maximum dimensions. The MKS HV747 servos are 35.5 x 15.

Anyone able to confirm that they will fit? Pics?

Thx!!!!!

OK great! Thx for the info and the pics... Out of curiosity, what was your reasoning for going with the HV737 vs the Hv747? Just looking for higher speed servos or did you have them already?

I spoke with Thomas at MKS USA at length and felt these were the best mix of torque and speed.
