About one inches......or a little less....

And my way...

So I knew this would happen... I want to put lights in it. Has anyone installed lights in the wings and if so how did you route your wires? Did you drill a hole through the spar? That makes me nervous but looks like that’s the way I would have to go based on this pic.. makes the most sense to go straight back towards the trailing edge and make the hole out by the tip of the wing? Thinking some unilights would be prettty awesome.

Thanks guys.
I installed the lights. Push the drill through the relief in the rib and drill through the spar. It's just a balsa filler. Nothing will happen. ***winter***

Hope it will be enough. ***winter***

Awesome, thanks Winter.

We’ve been flying till the sun goes down recently and the lights are sure awesome in the late evenings. Thinking it’s easier to put them in now than later.

cbk07 07-17-2020 01:22 AM

Thinking about lights in my new one too. Which Unilights are you using in wing?

Not exactly sure just yet, I was looking at the ones that say they are designed to go behind existing glass? I know they get hot, so I was looking for something like that or I was thinking I would put some holes in the front of the lenses and then a slot in the bottom so there’s some airflow through them.

Anyboday else have recommendations? Winter what did you install?

Sounds like the same ones I was looking at https://www.dreamworksrc.com/uniligh...re-light-green

The temperature thing kind of concerned me too. Probably be OK for the durations we are running them.....but don't really know

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

Not at all, it’s a beautiful scheme on the ground, but in flight it’s just a black dot.....at least my mini is...my T-1 is the Honda Scheme.

They are very good at producing 1 of.....I mean many of 1 of... 😬

@cbk07 I'm not usually a fan of all the logos all over airplanes unless they actually sponsor the pilot BUT, I'd buy this one in a heartbeat. That. Is. Gorgeous! @Dansy nicely done, sir. I'm a little jealous.

Dansy 07-22-2020 06:52 AM

All the credit goes to T-One and Dirk to take my ideas and executing it....go Lewis....for his now 7 world championship.....maybe.

I'm definitely the MotoGP guy and have an Aprilia myself but very excited to see what Fabio Quatararo does. He currently rides a Petronas sponsored Yamaha which is what makes me interested in this scheme. I may have to get a second T1 (after my first one gets here) with this scheme....and your blessing. Very, very nice.

cbk07 07-22-2020 07:10 AM

Thanks guys!! This one is a keeper for sure

and yes, Lwmewis looking mighty strong last couple of weeks. Will be hard to beat this year!

Valentino....I used to ride Ducati super bike.... ;) just don’t get any channel on the sat tv to watch it....

Rossi's my boy for sure. THAT would be a cool scheme on a T1! If you come up with it, I promise, I'll fly it.

FYI - Rossi signed a new deal with Tech 1 Yamaha for next year and an option for 2022. NBCSN is carrying it here in the states and in a condensed format but not like BeIN Sports was carrying it. I bought the subscription from MotoGP.com to get full coverage. Sorry to get off topic.
