Let me know how the turnigy 28 26 1650kv works and what prop you use, I would like to know how it compares. Is your budy using the Motrolfly or dualsky for his?

I believe he was using an E-Flite 450, then he switched to the Turnigy motor that I posted earlier. I bought two of those Turnigy motors when I placed my order...one for him and one for me. He says it works great, and he's using the recommended prop 7x5. I'll be using the same prop with a 35A ESC and 3s 1500-2200mah Lipos. Judging by the way his F-22 handles and flies, I'm gonna have more than a ball with this setup.

I found another color that I thought would be good for this color scheme...it's a golden brown. Now I'm just trying to figure out how to put it on there. I'm not sure if I want to do the spots like I did with the thicket green or some kind of camo runs, around the spots. Whatever I decide to do, it will get done tonight and I'll post some pics.

Mike,
The one time I saw someone do a wicked cool tiger stripe pattern He used the masking method. Basically he drew the pattern on the frame with a soft charcoal type pencil then he used masking tape to block the background color areas. Then two coats with the airbrush. An hour later the tape came off and he was done.

I don't know if he had a special kind of tape or just mad skills but he could make curves and angles as he was applying the tape.

You are correct. The original motor was an E-Flite 450. I'v had 8 flights with the turnigy and it definitely pulls harder and faster. I guess I need to update my build thread.

Later Mike.
John

Thanks John! I was actually thinking about that, but wasn't too sure how the base coat would react when I pulled the tape off. The last time I tried that method, it pulled the paint up with it. I think I'm a little too far into the paint job I currently have. Any more would probably just add the weight. It would take alot to redo everything. Thanks though friend. I should have tried anyway though...damn!

I added the golden brown into the paint scheme, and she looks a little better...not so plain. I think I'm about done with it guys. Here's a few pics:

Default Done!!

Well she's finally done! All built, painted, electronics installed and CG confirmed. All that's left to do is the maiden, which I hope to do this weekend...I'll get a video of it as well. Here's a few pics of the finished product:

Well guys, here's a video of the maiden flight. She was a bit nose heavy but nothing that can't be fixed. I was using a Turnigy motor that was within the same specs of the recommended motor...but she seemed quite warm after only 2 minutes of flight. I'll have to see what I can do.

I forgot to lengthen the song according to the video, so after 1:53 minutes of video, it's over.

Default Sweet!!

Great job, Mike!

You really nailed the maiden!
Your paint scheme is fantastic and she looks really good in the air.
Once you get to know your Mig a little bit better, you'll be able to land on a dime.

My favorite is the high-alpha slow flybys!

again, Mike: SUPER JOB!!

Thanks John. The motor was really quite warm only after 2 minutes of flight, at about 3/4 throttle...do you have that problem with your Turnigy as well?

Loved the video and backround music, wish I could of heard the motor though. Looked like you just stalled on landing, this plane you have to come in nose down and then flair at the last few seconds of flight. You will also notice you have little controle in a glide with the motor off unless you are nose down with some speed, just a heads up.

Hey Ken. Yeah, I should have set her down with a little power. She does glide pretty well though...better in the wind. She does have a tendency to have a fair "drop" rate the slower she goes, but I've seen Max2112 hang his bird up high like it was hanging on a wire. I'll be playing around with her some more today. She was actually quite nose heavy when I was flying her, but nothing uncontrollable...I think that's why she plopped down on landing like that.

Angler-Hi,
Nose heavy, looking back in this thread you were going to use a 1500 to 2200 mah pack. this plane was designed for a 1300. 1500 would prabably be O.K., but where is your CG

Well i readjusted the clevis to the closest hole to the base of the control horn, and replaced the old servo arms with longer ones for a quicker response and more throw. I just got back from putting her like that, but the winds picked up considerably (25mph). I have a video I took, but most of it is me struggling to get her down safely. I need to retrim her manually, as she wanted to keep banking to the left. She DID fly, however, with alot more personality. I love this bird, but be weary of a mean crosswind. Video coming shortly.

Here's the video...I finally got her down with zero damage. She was out of trim and the crosswinds were bad. One minute they would be coming from one direction, then another.

Thumbs up Great video!

Video looks *****in' Mike!

Once you get her down pat in windy conditions, it gives your skills & confidence a big boost when it's calm out.

I never thought of putting longer arms on. I'm glad you got the control you were looking for.

How about the hot motor? Were you able to compare the temps with what you had last time?

Later man!

The motor gets warm but nothing to really about. She flies like a champ with no problems. I just think the hot motor was due to flying her in the heat of the day...mid day.

No doubt. For the last couple of weeks, midday heat around here is about 103!

Yeah, and that's the reason I don't get to fly the Intruder as often as I'd like.
