Well, time to start this thread.......I bought this kit from Pete George who bought it from Wil Byers who bought it from.....let's just say this kit has been passed around more then the "entertainment" at a bachelor party..... I am the forth owner...I think.
The kit is from Herr Mueller and consists of a Rosenthal fuse...Mueller wings and tail and a retract from somebody....can't find any name on it.
It is full 1/3rd scale so has a Satan's wing span of 6.66 meters and should come in around 35 lbs. ready to fly.
I plan to go with mostly Airtronics Digital Servo's in it....I fly JR but do not like the "Buzz" that comes with using their servo's..... this is what I plan to use.
Tip Aileron - A-94820MG @ 90oz
Main Aileron - A-94820MG @ 90oz
Rudder - A-94851MG @ 192oz
Elevator - A-94851MG @ 192oz
Spoilers - HS-645MG @ 133oz
Tow - HS-5755MG @ 347oz
Retract - HS-5755MG @ 347oz
For the Receiver I plan to go with a JR922X Powersafe unit.
Hooked to that will be 2 of these: LiFe Po4 6.6v 3800mah batteries.
The retract will be hooked to a separate LiFe pack of it's own with a separate switch.
I plan to cover the wings in Vinyl Sign material...white on the top and blue bottoms....yes, not scale but I like to be able to SEE my airplanes in the air!
The fuse will then be painted to match the wing white.
First up is to order all the servo's and other airborne "stuff".....there goes a grand!
