Default Rebel Hot by Comp Arf

Looking into one of the Rebel Hot's produced by Composite ARF.
If you have recently received one of the revised models and can post your impressions that would be appreciated.
Thx,
Bob

Ordered the Rebel Hot. It just so happened the first order of this jet had just arrived in the west coast port. I had the model inside of two weeks.
The model is well made with a complete hardware set.
I purchased the arf plus version. This includes a premounted 60oz tank and retracts and pipe.
The paint is nicely done in the mould. The Rebel graphic on the fuse is cut vinyl.

I will post more photos when I start assembly. The retract system is made by JP the gear feature is 65 mm main wheels so grass operation will not be an issue. Four of my five jet models have the JP landing gear and they have been flawless in operation.
Power will be the new X 45.

Nice!
Look forward to seeing pics from the build.
Looks to be a perfect fill and fly type model (the type I like )

If I flew off of grass I would consider an M70, I am lucky to have a really nice runway to fly from.

Nice one Bob, I'm waiting for a 2mt here, do you run the JP brake controller in any of your sets?

The JP controller works fine. I have installed the Xicoy unit and use the pulsing setup.

Bob, you beat me by one day. Picked up mine this afternoon after work at the post office. Looks to be built with the same construction detail as other Comp ARF jets that I have, Looking forward to watching pictures from your build. Mine will be a late fall early winter build. Do have a question, did you get any build paper work with yours? You know control surface throws and CG. None in my box, I’ve reached out to Andy and he is looking into build information.

I asked Andy any he recommended MKS HV747 Titanium Gear High Torque Servo w/Aluminum Case (High Voltage). I have yet to do any research since I did not know the exact size the airframe would accept . More to come.

Here in the uk the Macgregor 2810hv will be worth using, the MKS is very similar in spec, not hand any experience of them so can't compare in terms of performance.

The servo frame will accomodate a 36mm long servo that is 20 mm from the bottom of the case to the flange

Hello can you take pictures of the steering servo mount please?

Thank you
