Ronnie,

Thank you for the info, I was hoping to fly it this Friday, but I got a small issues with the jet I had not counted on. Nothing major, just another 3 hours worth of work. I got a Bee for power, what do you have on yours? what kind of tanks and fly times are you getting? Mine has the Bandit Main tanks and the UAT, does anyone know how much fuesl the old style Bandit main tanks hold?

I had a simjet 1200 in mine.
It had custom tanks that held around 58 oz. and flew for about 6 minutes.

I sold it to David and he flew it much more, but lost it a few weeks ago in a dead stick.

Default RE: Maverick Info

can someone help me with some info.

i am building a mavericka nd about to mount the spring air retracts in the wheel well.

however, unless I am mising some parts or something all together. What do the "J" mounts look like ? I can't seem to see them on the
plans and cannot find an actual part or know what it looks like. i know the spars or i think I know, the spar goes into the j mount channel ?

Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Rob
