A very fast way to get in the air, from box to flying in approx 2 days. The smoke system has two tanks as well. Hi I would say the build quality is good, it seems to be built nice and light , considering it is sprayed out of the mould! Tanks were down to just half, so i guess 8-10 minutes flight is possible. I won second place in Team. Thank you Colonel Thacker, Greg Arnette, and Jayme Clark! If you wish to order individual items, please call as there will be added shipping charges that will apply.
See you at Top Gun. No need for complex power box system, just hook up a 9x or 12x receiver of your choice. If i find there is none, I will have at least a manual shut off valve installed. Jet Legend Viper Jet Manual can be very useful guide, and jet legend viper jet manual play an important role in your products. If you prefer a brand of turbine over the Spark 80Nor 120N, get the version without the turbine. If you are like me looking for quick build, get the turnkey version.
The bird is all trimmed and I hope to fly it next week myself. I can put in only about 4 hours work on a model per week, after business work. Thanks again and i wish you all the best with this jet. I will also be working on the wing lights and fitting a gyro to the nose wheel steering before the next flight. I may be wrong as I have not stripped my legs yet!! It is a challenge to fly 4 in formation. Idle provides perfect thrust balance giving great landing control.
I look forward to many more flights with this lovely Hawk - thanks again for producing such a great model. I have not filled the rear landing gear yet so I will double check later and confirm. We did two flights succesfuly, each lasting about 5 minutes. I all i need to do is hook up a receiver and assemble the wings and stabilizers. If you like your own thing and want to enjoy the challenge of building and modelling, get the kit version and do your thing. Only took about 4 hours of work to get the turnkey version ready for maiden. The maiden was in Coronel Tracker Event, Very grateful to be able to participate at this magnificent event.
We were among family and family we are. The throws were set as follows: Elevator up anddown 20mm Rudder up anddown 50mmFlap take of 25mm, landing 65mm. I can assure that the assembly and painting is well done. Wing load check was 90kg on each wing. In another hour, the controls were sorted out ready for adjustments. I did not fly the maiden but I can tell my buddy was in control and enjoyed the second flight. I have flash jet with K140F, work 96% done, yet to maiden since 1 month now.
We noticed this only this morning just before the taxi test. Only 4 screws to fix! Plane was built by from House of Power Hobbies using only the best equipment. Hi Ian, Honestly I wasn't sure whether its air pressurized or oil filled while at the field. Build and program for Franco Di Mauro in House of Power Hobbies. Thank you Greg and Jayme Clark for everything.
I needed some weight to balance the viper. Turbine response time to throttle movements is really good. Hi Celso, I bought the turnkey version with smoke system, turbine, retracts, servos all pre-installed. With the header tank full, main tanks empty and 4 lipo batteries 1 Turbine, 1 Rx, and 2 unused , it was about 100g or so nose heavy. Register a Free 1 month Trial Account.
If you are a pro, the performance from this jet will more than excite you. I handled the camera while a friend more experienced that me with turbines handled the maiden for me. Best Military Plane award goes to my T33!! Ihave a falcon 120 with K80F work in progess for 3 months now and still not finished. I prefer my turbines protected. The spark T12 trubine started with no issues.
Thank you very much for your complete explanation about this jet. This jet is a joy giver! It looks and flies like the real one!! Several more great flights during the week. The weight to thrust ratio is good. The first and second flight video is posted full time with no edits. I could not find any manual in my package and the information and pictures in this thread has been very helpful. Finally got the videos ready.
