The History of The F 86 Sabre Documentary

This model aircraft was flown in November 2018 jet meeting in Tokoroa New Zealand, filmed by XJet a regular YouTube broadcaster.

This is it's maiden flight and the first landing was made without flaps due to some unwanted roll-coupling that resulted from flap deployment. The pilot was also unfamiliar with the brake positioning on the transmitter so failed to stop before the end of the sealed runway. No damage was done, however you can see a bit of grass stuck to the wing when he taxis back.

So good close - ups in this video.

Sorry Andy I've just emailed you, because I was poking around in the 'Albums' section and saw your drop tank.

Hi Peter, 'Speed Brake' - I'm still thinking on that one Pete, I'll get back to you when I've sorted it.

Drop Tank, or rather two tanks, whats the weight and length Andy?, don't worry about the cost.

I'm drawing up some drop tanks for the wing, trying to get the scale correct, here's a few pictures.

Hi DaveO, this camouflage pattern in the right environment would help the concealment of this model, the delay in recognising it, I'd say best not to fly it in the jungle. yes.

1976 the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force was making camo pattern evaluations..

I've just sent Steve an email requesting a canopy.

25/11/2019 15:21:36

Al, Reface sounds good, I have to get some.

Hi Phil, you could use Holts Cataloy 'Knifing Putty' available from Halfords. It's ready mixed so you won't introduce air whilst mixing a two pack type filler. It's that fine it fills surface scratches and gives a extra smooth finish especially prior to painting or for your application Phil. Great canopy mould by the way.
