We have a couple of jet guys here in Knoxville, but we don't really have a runway capable of handling jets. Our home runway is 345 feet long with lake and trees all around. We occasionally fly off a...

I had to grind away part of the lip on the fuselage to get the tailpipe in, too. It fit (it's the stock Skymaster pipe), but there is some interference between the bolt that holds the vertical...

Got it. Thanks!

Question: would you mind letting me know how high the bottom of the nose sits off the ground with your nose gear deployed? Skymaster has changed the nose gear for this jet at least...

Where's your CG? Mine's at the middle of the recommended range. Maybe I need to move it back some.

Now I wonder if I need a second wing spar. :-)

What do you do about the rotation problem? It's the single biggest weakness of this jet IMHO.

Somebody flew a *huge* F-5 at Super Jet South a few...

I have a P100-RX that behaves the same way at times, especially in humid air. I just sent it back to JetCat USA, where John and the boys rotated the injector needles 180 degrees. John told me that...

I've ordered two sets of wing bags from Jackie and have been very pleased with the results. Based on this and everything else I've heard, I don't think you have to worry about losing your money.

It cost me $125 to ship the PowerBox to Germany (5-day delivery).

Yes, I must have tried putting it in the wrong way. I figured they probably tested the PowerBox before they sent it back. It doesn't make sense that the display doesn't work. There aren't any pins in...

RE: post pictures of your jet!

Couldn't resist posting a pic of my new ride. Took me two years to build it and Dustin Buescher (pictured) maidened it for me in December. I haven't been able to get out and fly it again (4 hour...

RE: Trust, but verify, Chinese Manufactured ARF's.
