Default Jtec"s 1/3 scale Talorcraft short kit

WARNING: Dr.Evil is at it again!!!

Ok so I was at JTEC last week on my way to the IMAC judging school. Al gives me a box of wood with the simple task of making it look like a Talorcraft and have it ready to fly at Nall !! So OK I will just put it first in line with my 28% hiperbipe and the rework i need on my 26% pitts and I can't forget my 35% PANZL arf. I think i need to quit my job i just dont have time to work .

So to recap make pic 1 look like pic 2 by first of May . (What could go wrong )

Default copy cat

This is the same plane that Ritchie Rich has done but JTEC made some changes.

Change 1, Hole in fire wall for canisters

Change 2, Carbon fiber spars should be faster to build.

Change 3, Dont know yet but I'm sure its here some where

This mite become a short kit so i will take lots of pics and do up instructions as well .

Default Talorcraft wing

The wing went together in less than 10 min. The way it works is very simple just stack all the ribs like you see in the pics install the carbon spars spread out the ribs slide in the sheer webs.


I think i can have the wings ready to cover by sunday will see.

That wing looks strong. That is a very smart way of doing it.

Some more pics of what it should look like when done. I think it would also be cool in 50% or 60% to give Hemple's cubs and 50% decathlons a run for there money.

The plans are available from Rick Barch here on FG. We will be offering a short kit but you will need to purchase the plans from Rick!!

What DR.E is showing on the wing is a redesign by myself and son Kevin. This is our personal mod and not done to the original plans. The wing design is the same construction that we use on the 26% pitts kit.

Default Made in America

MADE IN AMERICA ?


Got to thinking last night, ( that in its self is scary )

I have herd people complain about wasting there time and money on ARFs but never the time they spend on building, You cant buy that pride you have to earn it.

So buy a set of plans some wood or a kit and lets do what made this the best country on the planet !!!! and BUILD SOMETHING

A.R.F's Don't count



So thats Dr Evil's prescription.

So if a short kit is ordered we would be getting the parts for the plans built version and not the the build being shown on this thread? Just to make sure I am reading this right.
That wing build looks good and light, should be interesting to see what it weighs when done.

I have been wanting to build one up like this for years just waiting to get the other things done.
