Hi Don,

I'm sure there are many quality builders in your area we can set you up with to build you a T-1. Most of the hard work is done on the T-1, like all the control surfaces are hinged and double control horns are installed at the factory. To me that is the most time consuming task for assembling a jet. Let me know if you want us to put the word out.

Nice clean install!! Much better then my rush job lol.

On the fuel tank I would highly recommend securing it with something. I used a big zip tie around it. When full of fuel and doing some high G maneuvers I would not trust the Velcro.

gunradd 08-23-2016 07:22 AM

Also guys remember to tighten the wing clamp bolts before transportation or you will find they all fall out on the ride to the field.

Digital Pilot 08-23-2016 07:36 AM

Thank you.
I have a couple Velcro straps I will use around the tank and board.

Digital Pilot 08-23-2016 07:41 AM

I plan to Hysol nuts to the top side wing bolts so they can't work there way out. Iv had to do this in jets in the past and works well. If you ever need to remove them you still can.

OK, going to pull the trigger on one of these very soon. Already started gathering materials for the build. Can someone post the dimensions of the equipment mounting board please. I can lay it out on my computer with all the items, I plan on laser cutting mine to make it look nice and clean.

Ok so here is the un boxing.

the box is very sturdy.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178085 http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178086

My wing tub was loos in the box, but it did not do any damage :rolleyes:

First thing I noticed was the wheel wells are diferent.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178088 http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178089 http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178090

So it looks like they changed the bottom of the wing at the wheel wells. This eliminates the option of doing inner gear doors :( but this will be good for the sports guy that just wants to put the gear in and go. It does come with doors for the struts and the noes wheel, but not as nice... For me as I like doing gear doors. Now I can just forget them and move on :rolleyes:

tony that is allot better then the prototypes. The well is so big on mine I had to trim it some to get the airlines into the fuselage on the bvm quick connections. Wish I had those wells :)

Really impressed with the finish, only one area got damaged during shipping but it's the black so should be east to fix.

The hinges look good and tight, I really like the overall engineered design of this jet.

The wing is beautiful :p

I got lucky, in my scrap pile I have an old CF wing tube from an Aeroworks Super cub that is exactly the same size, it is about 3/4 shorter so not sure that will mater.

I love the noes cone :cool:

Nicely engineered!

The canopy is a bit ode as it just slides forward to unlock, might throw a few magnets in.
Equipment tray!

Turbine hatch is well done.

The equipment tray is 12 1/4 inches long by 6 1/2 at the front and 7 inches at the rear

Tony, the back of the canopy already has powerful magents built inside.

Noes gear
 
5 Attachment(s)
I got the noes gear ready to install.

I went with dule push rods to spread the load from a single pivot point,
robart bolted clevis and 2/56 X 4/40 ball links on titanium rods with alternating threads for fine tuning.

I pinned the servo plate with a 2/56 button head screw.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178147

Linkage.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178151

Next I will prep the main gear.

Got a text from DHL saying my box had arrived!!!! Was all excited then realized it was just the gear! Lol spoke with Dirk and he told me mine should be here anyway. Question for you guys that received it. Unfortunately was told that EMS does not provide tracking number but rather they bring over to US and have USPS handle the delivery but looks like the box is too big to fit in a USPS truck. Did you guys receive a notice from USPS and have to pick up box yourself at their location??

Mine showed up yesterday at my place of work, no notice. it was recieved by our shipping dept. Box is not that big, should fit on most trucks. It was very well boxed as others have shown, Mine had a fist size hole in the side of the box, but luckily it was at a void in the box where no parts were!!:)
