I also did an L bracket I bent from a piece of stainless I had laying around for the mains. Did one solid door on the nose. I wanted a split door on the nose but the steering servo hangs out some so it would have to be a huge front strut door and just went the easy route and did one solid door that is closed with a servo and sequenced in the DX18.


Well I cant load pics because RCU is messing up :( I will try agian later

Nice, did you have to go get it or was it dropped at your home?

HI, the postal system tried to deliver, but I was not home, so I had to pick it up.

Are you guys getting email notice and tracking numbers? I know some have said they are and some say it just shows up!

A few pics with the gear doors. Simple L brackets made from scrap stainless steel for mains. Some aluminum l channel would work also. The plane comes with the strut collars. For the nose one big door with a servo to operate it.

Also for those that are new to turbines building this plane please feel free to ask us questions. Also special care needs to be taken on this plane for the servo wires. The way the elevator servos and rudder servos get installed if you dont use special care the wires can hit the exhaust pipe.

Another tip..... When I got to Kentucky to do my first flight after a long trip some of the wing clapping screws where gone. The vibrations from the long drive caused them to fall out. This is a problem on this plane because the screws are bigger them the holes you use to tighten them. So if they fall out you will need to enlarge the holes to reinstall. I asked the factory to apply some lock tight to the new kits but not sure if they did. On some of my other planes with clamp screws lock tight fixed the issue. Another way to to simply tighten them back after removing the wing or installing dowels in the clamps and then tighten them. All they need it just a little tension so during transport they dont fall out. Do not over tighten them.

On mine I made sure the connections did not have a bunch of loose wire and are secured well. When I get time I plan on going back and making all the servo connections hard point. I already ordered the parts to convert the airports to the BVM ones that you just slide the wing on and your done.

Can you post info on the connectors, hard points you will be using, and the air ones too.
thanks

I would like to know if anyone can give me the wing size? I need the root width and the total length of the wing for make wing bags? Kelly

Digital Pilot 08-14-2016 02:26 PM

Root width is 23" and length is 36" from anti rotation pins to wing tip.
L/E to T/E tip is 12"

To anyone interested,

I have the BY, Black / Yellow scheme here in the California warehouse if you are interested. Local pickup would be great as the shipping to CA was already paid and additional shipping to you would apply. I would guess $100.00 via Greyhound to just about anywhere in the US.

Regards,

Dirk

Does this jet require the use of a Gyro and if yes what does it help. Is it like the bobcat where there is oscillation when coming in for a landing. Just curious if it is absolutely necessary.

Patrick

TonyBuilder 08-14-2016 04:15 PM

My understanding is the gyro is just an accessory but not reqiered.

Please re-install the four countersunk flat head screws on each sides of the retracts with some blue locktite. They are very loose.

Also, you may want to lower the humps that the trunnion glides over to lock the gears up, you really want to make sure that they come down. We had a couple of hung gear landings at KY Jets.

This is not good. Gear like this should be properly tested before it is released. Once again poor product control and testing

Hello Patrick

A gyro is not required for this aircraft. It has no bad tendency's. I would still recommend one because all aircraft benefit from them but its not necessary.

Also I see you live in Sarasota. I am not far from you in Tampa. I fly at Ocala. When you get your bird complete I would be more then happy to help you out however I can. You could even come up to my field for the maiden.

Call me on my cell (727)421-5742

Just got notification from DHL that I will recieve my package this week :cool:

Barry, did you guys do this and can you confirm that this was the issue and it fixed the problemb? Or are you guessing this is why the gear is hanging up? Pics!

Thanks

Had a great weekend with the T1. This weekend I got the buddy cord hooked up and let some people fly it and I also decided to let my son fly it. My son is 14 years old and has never flown a jet. First few flights he was shaky but by then end of the day he could fly it solo with no cord and got his turbine waiver :) Very proud father.

So this proved that this plane will work as a first time jet. I dont recommend installing the main gear doors if you fly off grass. With the trailing link gear they get pretty close to the grass if its not cut good.

Yes Tony we did this on both the prototypes. This gear is not made by T1 I dont think. It looks like the same gear that's inside many other ARFs from China. For me I dont really want the gear to have a solid up lock just a down lock and be able to always come down. If you look at Barrys pic the hump that the pin moves through needs to be dremelled smooth to get rid of the point. Dont do anything to the gear down side.

Yours gets here this week Tony?

Im sold on it now, I was gonna get a replacement Ultra Flash, but this one just looks too good, plus I really like the plug in wings instead of a 1 piece wing.
