My pipe is fine, the outer skine is pretty thin so it wrinkles. The inside is good, one ding at the end but I can work that out with some pliers.

If anyone has my black gear door covers I have your red ones :rolleyes:

I will make my own as these are not even close to fitting.

I have the same one inch gap between the gear covers, it leaves very little to attach the lower cover to. But at least mine are the right color. :cool:

Are you mixing any elevator with your flaps?

The T1 needs a little down elevator mix with full flaps. Crow is also nice for landings.

For knife edge I mixed a touch of down elevator in with rudder throw also. I dont think I put any aileron mix in for rudder.

Nice Barry! Glad to see the other prototype get in the air!

Same with mine. They need to make the retract cover longer so it meets the strut cover in this configuration.

I wish they would have left it like the prototype was, that would have been much better then this!

T-1 Breaking News!!

Due to the overwhelming demand for the T-1, the factory has informed me that any NEW orders going forward, may have delivery times up to 10-12 weeks. The factory originally allocated us 12 planes the first month and we exceeded that # by 40 units. The last thing we want them to do, is rush orders out trying to keep up and have them lose the High Level of Quality they have been giving us from the first T-1. I have been in touch with most of you that have placed orders and everything is still going forward as planned. If you have an order placed and feel you don't want to wait, please contact me and I will cancel your order and issue a full refund.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Dirk

Well I will have to disagree with you on this. I would gladly fight to get all my lines past the wheel well then to not have any option of doing full gear doors. Although 90% of the buying public will not do gear doors and this suits them just fine as you mentioned it's easyer. Otherwise the quality is top notch...I just wish they did not change this!

Progress

Got some progress on the T-one.
Right wing is done short of the gear doors, still seeing what I want to do. The current setup is not usful so one thought is to cut out the wheel well, frame my own and do a two pice full door setup (main strut and inner door).
Kind of like this .

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178411 http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/atta...mentid=2178412

I would make them out of CF or aluminum.

I got the noes gear installed and started to look at the door. My door has a slight twist to it but nothing I can't straiten out once I skin it with 1/64 ply. I am making two or three hinges out of piano hing I have. Might do two air cylinders being the door is so long.

Today is moving day so not much of a building day :(

Steering done. No binding, had a metal arm I bought for the steering servo for futaba which is what savox uses, went to try it and it didn't fit. So sticking with plastic arm for now. Should not be a problem. Wings next.

It does looks like they ment to make the gear cover longer and should have meet the strut door based on the cut out as the strut door is not as wide as the gear cover. But this still leaves the strut cover short as fare as fastening it. I guess you could just make new gear covers!

Nice work DP, why the cut on the door at the front?

Question for the turbine and tube placement.

How far back should the tube sit from the end of the taile section?

And what is the distance between the turbine and the front of the tube (space between)?

Thanks.

Hey Tony, Turbine pipes are very sharp on the edges, so it is common for them to stop just inside the tailcone, about 1/4-1/2 inch or so,
as far as spacing, KT states 20-30mm I myself would probably go with 3/4 -7/8 inch for that 120,, from the end of the turbine exhaust cone to the beginning of the pipe, NOT THE BELLMOUTH of the pipe, but the pipe itself,, I put a quick Reference on Digitals Pic (Hope you don't mind) to help understand, the cone needs to be in side the bellmouth.
Keep on chugging at the jet bubba, It looks fantastic.

Yes, I will probably make new covers this winter { have two colors to match and paint} In the meantime, the strut collars do need to be close and that leaves alot of door unsupported. I may use some alum. "L" stock to attach to the door {trimmed down} then to the collars.

What are the control throw settings that people flying are happy with?

Thanks,
