It flys great, maiden should be no issue. I have the isat set to 20 percent for flight and 25 percent at full flaps.

Your living room looks like a set from a 1960's movie. Very cool!

If anyone has a Rebel Hot that they're thinking about parting with, drop me a PM. I'm close to pulling the trigger on one and wanted to check if anyone wanted to let theirs go. I'm in GA so hopefully someone located in the southeast.

I was thinking about it.

For about .5 second then I came to my senses!

(Joking)

Good luck, they seem to be like Core radios where most people that buy them keep them and very few used ones come up for sale.

Default Maiden complete

Successful maiden of my hot today.... my cg was rear of the recommended cg and is still nose heavy, so I will move batteries around a little to fine tune it.

Other than that I have to say I am delighted with how it flies and it is surprisingly slow on landing.... the only issue I did have today was self inflicted... I killed my retract controller by plugging the battery in to it reversed!! Lesson learned and the plugs jp provide are being switched out so I can't do it again.

Thanks for the support Mr Wilshere.... 🙏 Motors and Rotors sorted me out with yet another great model and equipment.

Just picked mine up at an Old Dominion depot yesterday. Looks like it survived its long journey from Thailand to here in perfect shape.

Mine has single control horns on all the control surfaces, so I guess that got changed somewhere. Looks like they beefed up the area in front of the vertical fin, not much chance of it splitting there now, plus instead of a plywood key there on the canopy it looks like a piece or carbon now so that it fits in the slot better.

Not sure what the manufacture date is on it. If someone can tell me where to find that info I will look for it.

The date is on the round QC stickers. Single control horns are normal.
Andy has moved everything back to match my balance point, he was carrying quite a bit of up elevator. It’s very difficult to give an accurate position without removing all the fuel from the main tank. It moves quite a bit since all the fuel is in front of the balance point. But it’s also an airframe that isn’t greatly affected by the shift.

Hello guys. I was finally able to maiden, with success at the recommended CG, yet I came across a new issue, not sure someone else may have experienced it. I´m running a JetsMunt M70 on mine with the Booma RC AR SF16 great little Box and Gyro, have them on two other models, Yet issue becomes present at exactly 100k RPM with Gyro ON. I get servo glitching, specially when on approach and final Real scary....Manufacturer sustains I have a Phenomena of Frequency Reverberation on my Fuse, I have dampen with grommets to no changes. ANyone in the group experiencing this ?

Yes, I had similar experience with the X45 at a certain RPM. Resolved by adding noise isolation around the gyro unit in the form of a foam box.

Thank you for your feedback Bob.
May I ask what material did you use, Eva Foam? made an enclosure? besides cushion mounting double tape and grommets in the fixing screws?

My stickers do not have a year on them (see photo). The year looks like an "N".

I have a question about the fuel tank. The tank came with a 100mm long brass tube. I was told that it was to go between the stopper and the clunk so that it is not all fuel tubing between the two. Since I can find no instructions at all as to how that should look, can someone who bought the version with the fuel tank already installed take a picture of their clunk line please? If I put the brass tube in the middle of the clunk line the clunk can't fall to the opposite end of the tank because the brass tube will stop it. So, without a photo of someones already set up, where should it go in relation between the stopper and the clunk, and should it be shortened any from it's 100mm length?

Also, the tail pipe will not fit through the back of the fuselage, the opening is too small. Should I just sand the opening enough to allow the pipe to fit through? Is the fuselage opening supposed to be snug against the outer wall of the pipe or doesn't it matter?

Thanks.

I had to sand the back of the fuselage to get the pipe thru too. Its probably best if the pipe does not touch the fuselage.

The arrangement of the clunk line typically include a section of brass tubing to prevent the line folding over and the clunk getting stuck in the front of the tank.

The tank tubes are supplied one length, you cut them up for the various jobs. If your tank bung is assembled in the factory that one is for the hopper tank or just a spare or something to make an overflow tube out of. Any tank without a baffle should not have a straight brass tube in it, just Tygon. It will not fold over in flight.

I wrap 120grit sand paper around a tin and sand the return lip to an even clearance.
