|Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Sabre & MiG15 RCM&E 2018 Special|
I’m planning to cover mine in the red/silver as per Tony’s, can someone recommend the best silver covering, I’ve heard good things about Hobbyking film but the silver doesn’t look shiny enough.
Also, nobody has the Sullivan fine cables in stock that I can see (apart from JS Hobbies but I can’t see a ‘buy’ button!!!). Any good alternative cables recommended ?
Doh!! Pesky film 🤣 thanks for that Ian / Tony.
Cheers Stuart / Ian, It didn't appear to have a film on it but I'll get it out later and have a look, if not then I'll either look for the Johnson's Kleer or go with a painted canopy!! I like the idea of a detailed cockpit but just want to get her ready to fly!
Thanks Steven, looking good, have it flown yet and what fan are you using, I’ve got an FMS on order and another on pre-order, if the MIG goes well then the Sabre will follow!!!
Hi All, well my kit has arrived, still waiting for the fan. Maybe a daft question but I haven’t built a wooden model for 15 years! Is it purely bonded together with thick cyano (and kicker)?.
Also the canopy is cloudy, will it be possible to polish the cloudiness out? If so what polish is best for this?
Cheers Tony, the boy racer in me would opt for the more powerful fan, however I was weighing that against being sensible and just fitting an ‘adequate’ power unit thus having a lighter model due to the smaller capacity battery. FMS here we come!!
Do we think the FMS unit is overkill? What sort of flight times would you expect from a 1500 3S with the FMS fan? Hobbyking are nil stock of the Dr Madthrust and AEO unit, BangGood have both FMS and AEO available..... Decisions decisions.... Any advice appreciated as this would be my first EDF model..
C'mon people, this is getting painful just waiting for someone to fly one of the terrific looking models!!!! The sun is shining so lets fly
Has anyone got an update on flying these with any of the different fans? I'm looking to build one (or both? as a first EDF model) but all of the fans are out of stock, so I'm waiting for reviews plus restocking of the fans..
