Thanks to both of you. Sometimes, when we try to be objective about our flying, we may tend to be harder on ourselves than we should be (you already know exactly what Iím talking about).

I can honestly say that the Rebel pro went exactly where I pointed it and the KT 235 gave me the power to add the throttle in later and not have to speed along the horizontal. This is a graceful steed that presents well in the air. All you Rebel owners should be proud of what we have!

Sorry for my delay. I'll be posting pictures soon, I bought my unilights kit directly from their website.. its the Pro version for the Rebel Pro. I'll be using 7.4v, you can use 11,1v but you need to solder a resistor in each lamp, it comes with it in case if you need it.

My smoke pump isn't always used so not concerned about the power draw, but I do separate gear power from radio power.
A couple more grams for batteries doesn't make a difference in weight.

Default Servo arm recommendations

Hi Guys,
I have learned a lot from all of you here.
My Rebel Pro is in the way, so I am trying to learn as much as I can by reading and re-reading this thread.

Can you please share the servo arms (size and brand) you used to maximize resolution.
I am asuming there might be one servo arm length used for flaps and a different length for everything else.

Replys will be appreciated.

Jorgee.... Since you mentioned that you will read and reread the pages.....Look on the previous page, and you will see your answer right there.

Marcelo, I never used the Xicoy balance machine. I used a ply plate that is shown in a previous page here. For F3S competition, I ended up right in the center of the wing tube (with the UAT full and a little fuel in the tank). Granted, many of the Rebel pilots use the back end of the tube (or even further back) for flying, but for my style, I prefer a more nose heavy airplane.

Highly recommend you measure your plane yourself. The Xicoy is very exact and a few mm off can make a difference. It's not hard. Put a piece of tape under the fuse and get the measurements requested. Use a laser light or straight edge to make the marks on the tape. You only have to do this once. Each plane can be just a little bit different and you could wind up not getting what you expect.

Default Wing and stab tubes

Hi Rebel owners,
I was lucky to grab a bargain (a crashed Rebel Pro with left wing missing: destroyed at crash) for the price of thrust pipe (the pipe is included). The airframe seems to be in a very good shape and I plan to build left (or both) wings by myself and use Frank FT180 turbine as a power house.
Please, could somebody give me specs (wall thickness) of wing and stab tube? Plus the information what kind of tube is used (straight rowing or fabric texture on outside)?
Thanks much,
Richard

Out practicing yesterday with a bunch of pilots turning up at GA Jets. Dan Baker and I put some time in on both the Scale and Silver sequences for 2024. For anyone interested in seeing them (sequences) they can be found HERE.

It was a great day with light winds and bright sunlight.
