My new T-1 finally arrived Monday. The pictures do not do it justice, the paint job is absolutely beautiful! Well worth the wait. Thank you to Dansy for coming up with the Petronas scheme....hopefully you are not angry 😡 with me for “borrowing” it. As usual, Dirk was amazing to work with even with all of the extra delays and stress of Covid. Thank you Dirk!!
This one will have JR gear throughout, Electrons and Kingtech 140. Can’t wait to get it in the air

Dude, that scheme is AMAZING!!!! If I were you, I would order another T1 right now, then hang the current T1 in the Air & Space Museum!! That bird is to pretty to fly, you'll get bugs all over it, then have to clean it, then put it away, blah blah blah. For all those that are waiting for the T1 to be delivered, me and other folks here can attest to build/paint job of these birds. I know it's frustrating to say the least to wait, but the wait is worth it!!

My T1 showed up today. Almost 5 months on the dot. It came out beautiful. The paint looks perfect after just a quick look over. I will get building it soon but my packs wont be here for 4 to 6 weeks. It will be ready for flight shortly there after.
I want to sell my tanks and pipe. If anyone is interested.

Nice! Congrats!

What condition is your pipe in? Mine got the hell beat out of it and doesn’t look very good.

What pipe are high putting in?

The pipe is in perfect condition. The tank might be sold locally. A friend wants me to bring it over tonight so he can look at it.

causeitflies 07-23-2020 11:01 AM

By the way, can anyone tell me the tank capacities?

Digital Pilot 07-23-2020 11:53 AM

Kevlar fuel/smoke tank (125oz / 35oz)

Thanks, I couldn't find it on the site. I have the original 100oz which is a little small for my K160. I did add a 50oz smoke tank but only fill it a little over half so the combo tank would be perfect.

Thanks, Tom. I hope it makes work easier for others.
Mark, your T1 looks good. ***winter***

MarkF 07-23-2020 02:53 PM

Let me see if my friend wants my tank or not and then I will let you guy's know what I have for sale. I thought $150. for both was a good price but not sure what a pipe by itself is worth. I need to by a cortex pro and this is going to help the cause.

MarkF 07-24-2020 12:09 PM

On the electronics tray, where do you guys get those seals that the wires come through? I like the wire being underneath the tray and popping up right in front of the gyro or receiver. Some are round and some are elongated.

cbk07 07-24-2020 01:30 PM

They’re just rubber grommets. Can be purchased in pretty much any size/thickness. They take the shape to the hole...so a round grommet can be placed in an oval hole

They look nice, but have been told in jets are not necessary as there is no vibration to speak of

MarkF 07-24-2020 03:58 PM

Thanks, didn't realize they were just grommets. They clean up the install some so they look better to me. Yea not worried about vibration.

I used grommets....but also sometimes make 3D part to do this ;)

winter1 07-25-2020 12:37 PM

Grommets I only use it for petrol 3D acro . The picture shows a pre-drilled board for electronics + fuel system ... ***winter***https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...260dfc9e13.jpg

Wow Winter1, your kill'n it with your install!!! Your work bench is WAY to tidy!!!! I can only imagine how neat and tidy your install will be. Your work bench layout reminds me of the Anal Retentive Chef from SNL, way to funny!!!

bodywerks 07-25-2020 07:56 PM

I'm embarrassed to show my work bench! I always start out somewhat organized and try to put tolls back where I got them, etc. But as the build nears completion I get all excited and the bench becomes a disaster area! And this time, the jet I am currently finishing was started at around the same time tat I finished another jet and didn't bother 'resetting' my work bench, lol!

I can use some of your guys help with my Electron gear with GS 200 controller. What are your brake and gyro settings? I need a place to start so I can test.
Thanks for your help.
