Together with a friend of my, we ordered 2 Tucanoís TP. I canít wait to see the airframe live. 😃
So far the guys from Kingtech Luxembourg and Juniaer are great regarding communication. 👍

The rudder servo in the back seems to be a nice idea instead the traditional ďpull-pullĒ. I donít know what the natural tendency is of the model regarding CG? (Needs weight in back or front?)

As our airplanes are already in Europe, I guess we have to reinforce the tail our self. Some pictures would be really appreciated.

You will love the planes!

The carbon on the back side gives side or up / down pressure strength But i feel that as a tube, it would still be helpful to add the former. I will try to do it within 2-3 days and post the picture.

We collected our new toys yesterday.
Very nice and beautiful airplanes!



Juniaer Tucano straight out of the box.

When I got one was US$ 1600 and the scale gear was 1200. I have to say that these guys are the nicest people and the detail is great.

thanks mate, I have been in touch with them and very good communication via whatsapp and email. Prices are $2100 USD for theTP kit plus $1100USD for retracts.

What is the quality of the kit? Any issues? What are the retracts like?? Photos look nice but would be good to get feedback on actual use.

Does it come with gear doors for main and nose?

cheers
P

The quality is excellent and the plane has amazing details. I think it for sure is worth it.

Quality of the retracts? How robust?

Gear doors are included but itís up to you how you fit them. I chose to leave the nose door off.

Could someone tell me who is the US distributor for the kit? I only found it listed on the kingtech luxumbourg site.
Also I'm looking at the xicoy x45tp which is firewall mounted. Any thoughts from existing owners how the bulkhead/firewall setup would work?

Ofcourse everything is possible but you have to make your own engine mounting. The TP Tucano is really designed around the Kingtech K45TP with a full carbon engine mounting system.

I am in the middle of building my Tucano.
I have used the original gear struts and wheels. But I opted for Electron retracts and Xicoy electric brakes. Here some pictures of my gear doors set-up.

Looks very good.

I have decided to do mine without the separate wheel doors

I’m hoping to finish it for a maiden flight over the Christmas break.
You may find you need to alter the pipe to the gearbox as it stops the top part of the cowl from going on. I’ve bent a piece of 4mm brass pipe and routed it under the turbine instead of over the top.

Thanks for the tip regarding the copper tube. I am gonna search for a copper or brass tube.
Do you know already which prop you gonna use? Are you gonna build in a smoke system? If not, are you gonna use the fwd or rear tank as fuel tank?

For those that want to build the 50CC version and use Electric motor, please be aware that the motors that are listed in manual fit but no other motor like hacker or the Espirit Elite would not fit. I learned this in the hard way by purchasing an expensive Elite motor and many different shaft extender etc. and none worked as the upper part of the cowl would not fit if installed.

Sorry, I meant brass pipe (changed in previous post now).

I have only used one tank and located it up front as I used to own a JMB PC-21 with a Kingtech 60TP and and the smoke oil running down the sides of a model makes a mess, it’s much cleaner when it’s coming out the back of a jet.

I’ve purchased the Biela 5 blade 20x10, which cutting the spinner for is going to be challenging! I can’t see that there is enough clearance for a 22inch, especially since I plan to fly from grass.

Biella 20 x 14 is the one recommended and works fine for me.
Junier recommends JC 20 x 14 which you can order from Aircraft International. It is wood and much lighter and lets the motor rev up higher with better performance in my opinion but I like them both.
After talking to Dirk at KT about the gearbox lube tube not fitting, we decided to use clear fuel line which works great. With the carbon fiber engine mount, it is easy to route the plastic tubing away from the hot exhaust parts.

Didier,
I also used Electrons. I also using Electron legs.
The mains with trailing ling are ok but I don't like the trailing link nose gear. Does not look right.
Are you using Electron nose gear? If so, does the Juniaer nose strut work on it? You did not post any pictures of your nose gear set up.

I am still in doubt if I am gonna use the ďaft tank positionĒ as this position is a little bit more on CG.

I have not much experience with smoke but can it be that some smoke fluid is ďgreasierĒ then others?

That were my thoughts as well. I am afraid to have prop strikes with a 22Ē as I fly from grass as well.
