I used the FMS 11 blade unit in my Sabre Jet as the 8 blade AEO unit wasn't available. It's very smooth, but I will probably need an 1800 3S battery.  I bought it at BangGood

Preshaping the fairing blocks works well for me also. I needed to do that on my Grumpy Tigercub model.

Yes some very good people there, also many not so good. Andy Knunz is a Spektrum engineer who is one of the helpful ones

Great looking build, I like the underneath cheater hole.and very tidy wiring job. I'm just installing my servos now and am shortening the wire leads to keep it neat inside my Sabre Jet. I'll be very interested in your flying report.

I would think they would both be ±

elevator ±8

aileron ±4

Maybe Tony will clear this up for us.

It's pretty much in the middle of the drawing.

Very interesting project - how did you make the snake pathways through the fuse?

23/12/2018 17:33:58

Do you intend to add a propulltion system as well as making the control surfaces controllable?  Similar to your LIDIXL?

Yes - I enjoyed watching the Detectorists as both Diana Rigg and her daughter were in it.

I’ve finished the main fuselage except for cutting out the hatch. I’ve also finished the tail feathers. I had to make one of the elevators over again after one of the slits for the hinges broke through. I have a hard time putting hinges into 1/8th. I’ve also shaped the main wing and am fitting hinges to it now.

I followed the plans for everything and the only minor discrepancy I found so far was the 2 holes in Former 8 aren’t required when inserting the control cables. I’m very happy with the plans and will make the MIG also.fuselage.jpg

I've also been following them for a while now, a lot of fun.

Yes - I've been looking into that also.  Just dont want to weaken the wing joint too much.

The TN Sabre is next on my building list. There has been a lot of discussion about getting sufficient air in to the fan,

I'm going to use Naca ducts on mine, what are the tell tale signs on the ground that the edf is not getting sufficient air and is being choked ?

I picked up an "Aeroplane Illistrated" book on the F-86 and found apicture of a F-86C with NACA ducts.

It may make mounting the elevator servos a bit more fiddley.

To highlight an area in Acrobat use the "Take anapshot" function from the "Edit" dropdown.
