  • Oh fair enough. If the seem line isn't the centre line or thrust line then cool. Just the way everyone was describing it as up.

      • Every jet I own has a touch of UP elevator to some degree. And welcome to the Legacy Club Pat!

          I think "everyone" was just me. :Straight-Face: I used "up elevator" to better describe which direction from the plane's mid-line to set the leading point of each elevator since the word "down" was used without further definition. It was purely for clarification purposes in a very specific circumstance. Sorry to inject any confusion.

          I just looked at some side pictures of the real plane and I can't even see an actual seam or panel line where the elevator is. I think the model just happens to have a seam there due to the way the mold was designed and it's that seam that is used as a reference.

              • Anyone heard any rumours as to how long after the model is released the ordinance will come? And for those impatient ones among us if we just get the F16 ordinance set is there actually much difference?

                • Also anyone got any ideas on after burner lighting yet? Not something I've done before but really keen and interested to do on this model. Presume they have to be mixed with throttle channel so they only come on at high throttle inputs?

                    RC Geek's Centerburner is fan-freakin'-tastic. Have it in my 90mm F-22 and it's SWEET. Have mine wired into the UBEC and is programmable to whatever throttle points you wish. Mine activates around half throttle.

                      I already have an RC Geek center burner ready to go for my gray one. They just 'Y' into the throttle and are set utilizing a small control board. I power it with a 2S 380mAh battery. No idea on ordnance yet. F-16 pylons are not the same as on the F-18 but might work in a pinch. I have 3D printed what I am putting on mine (AIM-9's and 330 gal. external tanks) and modified some F-16 pylons to more closely emulate those used on the 18. They will be fine for now. I also have some of the AGM-88 Harms from the F-16 I could use as well. Mix and match!

                        You aren't alone! I love them both, but I do slightly prefer the Super. Unfortunately, the old Freewing 90mm Super Hornet was pretty wonky-looking.

                                Just like the Raptor, yes?

                                  According to the manual it has an 8A UBEC.

                                    I can't say. I haven't looked too closely at the Raptor.

                                      If I’m not mistaken it’ll be this 130A esc/8A Bec

                                        Cool I'll power the centre burner from that save having another battery and more weight on board

Due to the new FAA rules released and our field being in controlled airspace (Delta), it is not on their approved "fixed site" list for RC aircraft operation. The situation is currently being worked on in hope of gaining approval from the FAA to be added to their list of approved flying sites within controlled airspace. Although I'm optimistic, there is always a chance that the request will be denied. The field just had a jet rally over the weekend and two FAA reps. were at the field observing, answering questions, etc. They appeared very nice, but the decision isn't directly theirs. If the field does get approved, they can further limit flight operations such as lower altitude ceiling, etc.
                                          T-Cat, I saw on FB that Apollo is now in fact shut down by the FAA. Any more information on your end? I can hardly believe it.
