So maybe just some simple strengthening will make it last a bit longer? I certainly wouldn't be doing hard flying with it.

Hey Ghost,

With the HV setup, I'm using a Syssa ignition battery eliminator circuit, which also doubles as a kill. It handles the higher voltage fine.

A bit annoying that the Rxcel (or whatever you're using) isn't compatible!

Those servo arms look great. I'm a big fan of using arms with the secondary pinch bolt.

Tim

Tim,

Ta, I will have to look into other types of HV stuff myself, had no problem with the voltage regs but going to larger aircraft will require a different setup. The servo arms are from Hobby City and are a great arm, CNC, made in different lengths, only thing is the longer ones are drilled and taped ot for 2mm bolts, just drill the out and use larger bolts and nylock nuts.

Cheers

Hi All,
Fixed the fuel tank, 350ml juice bottle and some made up fittings and a leftover Festo fitting from my jet days, It is about 20ml larger than the orignal tank and now there is no stopper to worry about leaking. Now I just have to wait a bit longer for my back to mend so I can bend over to assemble and start the model.

Cheers

That's a neat setup! I like the stubby holder there too! I never thought of using one of them!!

Not a stubby holder, piece of old wet suite(7mm {arm}) so maybe it could be a stubby holder.

Cheers

Sorry to see that, the Sbach is a nice airframe, I have the yak-55 30cc, electric, I only have about 4 flights on it but so far it's pretty good.

Know how you feel, my first one hit a lighting pole at the oval we fly at, not a lot of damage untill it hit the ground and then I had a bag if tooth picks. Did not look that bad untill I got it home and every thing was broken.

Newbie here,
I have been reading on this thread for a while now. I bought a mx2 then I went to start mounting my engine and was scared to death. I then gave this to a friend that has built a lot of gassers. Boy am I relieved. I bought some smaller standoffs but after reading of some of the weakened firewall problems we decided to just cut back the firewall to fit. Looks great now. This is my First big plane. Mostly foamies, Helis, and .80 fs balsas. I am super excited. I hope to maiden in the next week or two. I was going to go Electric, however I figured since I was spending so much already on this plane might as well have some smoke!! Here are a few pics. I will probably be changing some things out later to better batteries (running nimhs now), And maybe even some better servos later. I will try to get some video of the maiden. I also bought a Gary Ward Aerobatics Decal package from Callie Graphics to make this look even more like the real MX2.
