Has any one flown one of these yet? I have one and I was wondering if a D11-P would push this bird alright
Actually I've seen this done (albeit with a solid epoxy plug rather than a balsa plug epoxied in) and it didn't work. The ejection charge DID blow out the front, and the blew that particular glider to pieces!Originally posted by JStarStar
Is it considered an unacceptable "user modification" to simply epoxy a balsa disc over the end of a normal D12-3 to in effect, create a plugged engine?
The obvious question: "wouldn't the ejection charge blow out the sealed tube?"
Here is a link to the instructions!Originally posted by airwolfe1
I recently purchased (i.e. got hosed) this kit on eBay. Was advertised as new, but I received no instructions with it and the right elevon was cracked. Seller won't respond...surprise, surprise.
My question to the forum...Does anyone have a set of insructions they would scan for me? and If I epoxy the styrofoam elevon how critical will the weight imbalance be to the flight characteristics?
Hey Missileman, have you ever flown yours on an E9-P? Those sound like they would work pretty well.Originally posted by missileman
I have a Hobby Labs SR71.
The elevons on the free flight one are moved to launch position by the thrust of the motor. The motor MUST stay in for recovery.
There is not enough throw in the elevons to overcome a nose heavy descent.
D11-p, Commonwealth has them in stock.
There was an SR71 launched today at our launch.
It flew on a D11-p, went about 75 to 100 ft. imediatly nosed over and went into a fantastic circular glide. very impressive.
I would like to try mine on a RMS load
