Thumbs up F-86 Sabre "Jolley Roger"

While hanging out browsing the web I took a look at Hobby-Lobby.com and began browsing I cam across this http://www.hobby-lobby.com/f_86_sabr...ueryId=3503056 As most of you know I am in the USAF and what you may not know I am in the mighty 90th Missile Wing The Jolly Rogers. The Jolly Rogers who at the time of the Korean War was the 90th Bomb Wing and flew numerous missions in this plane. Who am I to deny my military heritage and well yes I just had to have it. Looking forward to this 64mm EDF. Should arrive next week hopefully in time for the weekend. Will keep ya all posted

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

I have the panther, and although different characteristics, it is built with the same equipment. They are pretty tough planes, but therre are some things most folks do out of the box on these, most upgrade the esc, or move it in the path of the airflow to cool it. These are great planes and alot of fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed my panther.

Nice plane. It's great you have some history with it. A guy at the field just maidened his Skyblazers version of it. (Looks like the same plane, different scheme?) It flew great right out of the box. I'll bet it'll be a blast.

Thanks Phellas. I am exited to try it out. I hope it fairs better than my Stinger. Which I just finished putting back together for the umpteenth time.

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

Did not feel like typing today. Yet I sit here typing this LOL So I made a video today of the the testing of the Plane. Pretty excited about it so far. However I am concerned about the CG. According to Pg 10 of the manual CG is between 3 inches and 3 1/8 inch from the wing chord after placing battery in with no room to move back she balances but tends to lean toward the tail. Somewhat concerning may add a small fishing weight to make her just a bit nose heavy.

best nose heavy than tail heavy make all maiden plane flights nose heavy, the MFG seems to never have the CG placed right on their products, maybe because they want you to crash and then have to buy another plane

I would welcome the chance. I may wait to fly it until I get a bit better at flying my Stinger 64. Depends on how itchy I become

Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades, as the drunk old men say. Fly the damned thing. I bet its way easier to fly than the Stinger!

Default Fianlly a maiden

Well today finally came. Yep I finally got a chance to maiden the Jolly Roger. It was awesome yep a short flight because while in flight I noticed I needed to make some minor physical adjustments for the trim. She was a rush and a great plane and pucker factor was only an 8 outa 10. The "bombs" designed to be used to protect the servos and assist in a belly land are not that affective upon landing one snapped off and needed to be glued back on. If that is all I have to worry about then life id good with this EDF. Hope to have more video of her ASAP

Very nice Jet I had a F86 with a K&B 61 with a prop, that was a fun plane to fly, Then i had a problem with a pin hole in the fuel line inside the fuel tank, the engine would run then die out and that caused a crash on take off, it got about 10 feet into the air then the engine died and I lost control, i was not going fast enough to recover, oh well, i will get another one soon I have been selling my left over nitro planes on EBay, i sold 2 nitro planes yesterday, just have one more to sell, its a Extra 300L /60 size ARF, it nice, That will be for sale on EBay soon too, Take care and have fun, Chellie

I am beginning to really like this plane. I may even like it better than my Stinger. I flew it again yesterday. No wind and I did not think it would get airborne. The stinger tried but couldnt even without the landing gear, will have to look into that. This plane is a roller coster a real blast. My friend Gary filmed and tossed it for me. He did a sound check and cme back at 48 mph. Not to fast by some standards but for me thats awesome. I honestly must say this plane gets my heart rate up...like busting out of my chest.
Enjoy

I was stationed at Warren in the late 60s in the 90 cams. We worked on the Hueys that went to the sites. I loved the Wyoming open country and sky but the wind was always blowing. How do you handle the Wyoming wind?

Way to go, Fish ! A real winner you have there. Having fun with my 50mm Skyangel series T-45. These little EDF's are a blast!

Am now looking at the F-86, F9F Panther and T-33.

Off topic, but I fell upon a very cool little park in of all places, Bowling Green, KY the other day; www.Aviationheritagepark.com Have a restored F9F-5 Panther, T-33 Shooting star and a F4D Phantom II on display. Low and behold, the President of their association, Arnie " Rooster" Franklin was there. Turns out they are getting an F-111 next year from the USAF boneyard in AZ.. It was his wingman's plane. Arnie was commander of the Libyan Bombing raid ( Eldorado Canyon mission ) ordered by Reagan in April ,1986.

It's always cool to get a close-up look at the full scale planes I yearn to fly in the rc world. And then talk to a fighter jock who made history? Over the top for me.

Saluations,

Hawk

Thanks Hawk
EDFs I think are great. It gives my heart and blood pressure a work out. I think Nigel is on the right track with a launcher but unortunatly I do not understand his plans on how he made it. Hope to build one soon. The stinger needs a heck of a throw to get in the air up her at 6000 feet but the F86 just a good toss and she will climb nice and easy. The F86 also has the entie fuse for the fan to suck air through where as the Stinger has it on enlets on both side of the fuse and up here I think it is a big disadvantage thus far

Flew Jolly Roger again today twice w/out incident. She just books on along. Almost got crazy with her but she moves so fast I got fearful and just enjoyed flying scale. This plane is so exciting to fly. I am eager to get used to her so I can speed her up if anyone has sugestions on how to do it I am listening. Not sure when I will increase her speed but she is sure a blast. I originally thought that the Stinger is a good first EDF well I lied it is definitly the F86 she requires no wind and with the open fuse she can suck in all the air she needs. I may have to look into a Mig.

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

Hey Fish,
Glad to hear you're having a blast with the F-86. Skyangels (Jpower) has one in their Humming Bird series . It's a 50mm DF with a 645mm WS. Such an Iconic fighter !

The Red Arrows T-45 is now repaired, An aileron started to detach at the seam during flight. Mayday ! Got some Welders glue and all is better now. Same thing happened to my RadJet.

If had the money, I'd also get the T-33(T-bird) and the F9F Panther. Father's Day is around the corner. Time to start dropping hints...

Have a basic ground halt this weekend in DFW. Texas Spring winds. Spent some time repairing the squadron. I wonder if you can an AP&P for RC -LOL
Buil the SU-37 and the Air Hogs Titan $10.00 airplane .

Chompin at the bit to get back out there

For some reason I cannot open videos posted here unless they have You Tube links. Must be a setting somewhere.
