Starting Off 2012 Right with a Successful Maiden Flight

January 2, 2012

N-Tech Jets is working to bring out several jets for 2012. One of those jets is the Hawk. We test flew a sample today using electric power. As you may have seen in my previous post about this plane, Larry Wolfe at Jet Hangar Hobbies helped out by building the prototype sample. He installed his E-Turbax Fan with custom Neu Motor controlled by a brand new Ice 2 160HV Castle Creations ESC. Battery is 6500mAh 12S Li-PO. Radio is SD-10G. Retracts are N-Tech Jets retracts and struts and control system designed for the Hawk.

Larry brought it out to PVMAC today, Jan 1, 2012, for it’s first flight. And what a GREAT flight! Take off was perfect, flight performance looked GREAT, and landing was SMOOTH!

The Hawk will be available 2nd Quarter 2012 from Hobby People and N-Tech Jets Dealers. It’s an awesome 68″ wing span, 21 pound, 120mm EDF high performance model. What a GREAT flyhing airplane!

The N-Tech Jets Hawk is a winner. I’m looking forward to a hundred more successful flights!

Thank you to Jet Hanger, Larry Wolfe, and Tim Johnson for all their help!

A perfect way to start off 2012!

The Next N-Tech Jet

November 24, 2011

The Production Sample of the N-Tech Jets Panther flew today with expected good success. What a fantastic airplane!

Next up from N-Tech Jets is the Mig 15. This is a spectacular model with tons of detail. From inspection panel markings to wing fences, this model is simply great looking.

My latest production sample will also be flown with the Jet Hangar E-Turbax and 12S system.

Here’s a pic of one built and flying.

Items Used to Complete our Panther

 

Radio:

We recommend an 8-10 channel radio for convenience although technically the Panther only has 6 functions: Ailerons, Rudder, Elevator, Flaps, Throttle, and Retracts.

 

Qty 7 94851 Metal Gear Servos (or similar)

Qty 1 94722 Standard Servo (or similar)

qty 2 750mm Extensions (for tail servos)

qty 4 500mm Extensions (from wing joint to receiver)

qty 2 300mm Extensions (from Ail servos to wing joint)

qty 1 100mm Extension (from steering servo to receiver)

(If your radio is only 6-8 channel, you’ll need QTY 3 Y-harnesses for the Aileron and Flaps and Steering/rudder servos).

Servo Lead retainers (Heat shrink, molded clips, whatever is your preference

Receiver Battery: We recommend either a 5 cell Ni-MH pack of 1600 or more mAh rating, or a Li-FE 6.6v receiver battery with 1600mAh or more rating.

 

Power System:

-120mm Fan

-12S Motor

(We used the Neu Motor for the E-Turbax fan although other motor/fan systems of this size and rating will work)

-Castle 160HV (The power system does not draw this much current but EDF systems tend to be very demanding of the ESC, thus we use an ESC rated a little higher than necessary)

-12S 5000 to 6500mAh LiPO packs, minimum 40C rating (The airplane is setup for using two separate 6S packs sometimes called Saddle Packs)

-6mm Gold Connectors or similar (Castle 6.5mm connectors for example)

-Mounting Screws for the Fan Unit (different fans may have different requirements, we used #4 x 3/4 Dubro Socket Head Wood Screws for mounting the E-Turbax Fan)

 

Other Items:

-The fuselage can be broken down into two parts, so we installed air-line connectors at the fuselage break, it required 3. Robart, Jet Hangar Hobbies, or other similar air-line connectors will work.

-Glues: We used Wood Glue, Epoxy, and C/A (instant glue)

-Threadlock, (blue or semi-permanent, do NOT use “red” or permanent thread lock)

-Tape: Gaffer’s Tape or bi-directional Packing Tape will work. This is to seal off the air between duct joints and around the motor wires where they exit the exhaust air duct.

-Basic tools (file, wire cutter, pliers, hobby knife, various metric hex-drivers, small drill bits, drill, etc)

-Paint to detail the cockpit (Optional)

-Small amont of fiberglass cloth (3/4 to 1 oz weight)

Several Receivers for RDS8000 and SD-10G

January 11, 2010

Many Airtronics users have wondered if there are other receivers available for the RDS8000 and SD-10G besides the stock receivers?

Here’s a list:

There is an 8, a 7 and a 6 channel available. All 3 are full range and the 6ch is quite small and affordable
Click the links:
8ch
7ch
6ch

There is also an affordable lightweight park flyer receiver. With the case off it is only 4 grams or so making it very nice for indoor planes, small helis, etc.
