    My Question to you and whoever is on your TV parts, is it 3D printed stuff or does anyone have a molded plastic or metal option.
    I'm using a 3DP set from here.

    You can order a printed set as well.

    It's a neat design but it definitely restricts flow a fair bit as the shape doesn't match the taper of the stock exhaust shape. I'm familiar with Evans solution (I believe others have followed his lead) and suspect it has a much lower disruption of the exhaust, I'm just not that good of a modeller lol.

      The air flow restriction is the first thing that came to mind on the 3DP parts. Thanks for confirming that. I will search Evans post to see what he has done. I saw once upon a time but I've slept since then....

        It still flies great and TV is an amazing addition to an already amazing plane, but yeah, it kinda defeats the purpose of running a nice warm setup like that if you're going to be robbing thrust at the tail end.

        • Hi guys. I have a question about my afterburner. The plug that goes to the balance plug on the battery which right now I’m using two 4s batteries so no problem. But I just got a 6s and a 2s. Which battery do I plug it on the 6s or the 2s?

          • This is a big bird. I'm assuming either everybody's got a truck, trailer, or you guys are assembling at the field! I'm pretty sure this fuse won't fit in my truck, even with the pass-through to the back seat (2012 IS250). I'm trying to work out the logistics for this one. I'm wondering if I'm going to need to take my wife's car every time I want to fly this one.

ID:	319506 You need a bigger truck. It's fits in the back of my Corvette assembled and with the nose glued on... Fits really easy in my airplane hauler.

                • I fit the F-22, mig 21, JAS 39, and the EF F-16 all in my pick up. Just to be transparent I do have to take one wing off the raptor .

                    • The new 80mm F-17 or the 70? I wonder how many of us have or have ordered the new 80mm...

                        Nah I like the looks of the new 80mm but my little 70mm has all the bugs worked out and is like ole faithful. Nice Vett by the way.

                        • Special enough! The color looks like it goes well with your Yamaha. And you can cruise around with a Raptor and I'm guessing the Mig as well. I think you're doing retirement right Evan!

                          • Thank you

                            the mig is significantly bigger. It won’t fit back there.

                            • We have utes, well, we used to when we had a manufacturing industry. Similar LS series engine to that 'vette with space for an AL37 in the back. I believe these were sold in sedan form as a G8 in the US. Makes light work of a raptor, just go easy on the clutch...

                              • Why transport it with the wheels down? If you still have the molded foam carton, the fuselage part could tied down to bed and the plane rested on top of it.

                                  Oh it's just this particular photo - I dont transport with the wheels down. Usually there's a few jets stacked on top of one another with padding in between.
