Default H9 100cc Decathlon 99% done

Hi Guys

Just thought I would share with you my H9 Super Decathlon 99% done

Still waiting for a carbon spinner to arrive so fitted an Irvine what in the meantime , also lights to fit...

Engine is DEL11 with 27.5 x 10 Biela carbon
Servos are Hitec HV series all 29 kg on 7.4V throttle is 12kg 5685 HV
Secraft arms on all servos
Emcotec Mag switch
2 x 3200 Lipos for Power
JR922 Failsafe system rx.

Little disappointed in the windows, not the best quality...Little scratched and not that clear, Have also strengthened the undercarriage internally with carbon weave.. al in all not bad the engine has had a couple of tanks now and is sweet. Ready for some decent weather here in the UK to test fly.

Good looking plane. The cowl swallows that 111 right up!

Good Luck with the maiden.

Hi Thanks, the DLE111 fits perfectly in the cowl and the linkage from the throttle servo to carb is simple to put together.

It helps when things drop straight in...

Thanks
Take care

I would close off that bottom intake in th cowl. It will cause heating issues with your motor. I have the Hempel and had this problem. Closed it off and all is good now.
Very nice looking!

Hi Thanks for the info, what problems did it cause? I have louvred the cowl to let the cold air in and hot air out, not had overheating issues before and rather not start now.

Thanks
Craig

It causes too much pressure in the lower part of the cowl not allowing air exchange thru the top part of the cowl. Air will be stagnant and heat up.

Agreed.
On the full scale bird that hole is for carb air - not engine cooling....

It would be nice if Horizon would have some side windows made up out of better material and send them out to the owners. That's an expensive ARF and it ought to look really, really nice. (But if you hadn't have mentioned the side windows, I wouldn't have really paid too much attention, ha, ha) Listen to McEachern, he's the man!

Hi Guys thanks again for the info..

Yes it is cut for cans, I have done this myself and have a set ready to pop in if needed, I want to run it on its stock units first to see how it goes.

If it doesnt work out I will fit the cans.

As always thanks for the feedback, I hope to fly this weekend weather permitting, at the moment here in the UK its wet and windy.... fingers crossed Saturday/Sunday work out ok I will post something on the maiden so watch this space.

Take care
Craig

I did put a video on you tube of the engines very tentative first run, only 30 seconds or so but it worked well, link below.


ThanksCraig

Hi Guys

Here are a few pics before the build really took shape, you can see the tunnels I have done for the cans and also the wing bags from Revoc, these have to be the best ever

Also have attached to the firewall more blocks to attach the cowl to, I did not feel 4 was enough.

All embroided exactly to match the aircrafts scheme and will fit around elevators and rudder whilst they are on the plane.

Also had 2 engine choices DEL11 or EVO116 went for the DLE as it meant no modification to the firewall because of the undercarb set up, the EVO has a rear carb and it would have meant serious modding to get it to fit.

Thanks

Craig
