Building the Sebart Advanti Mini:

The Horizontal Stabs are connected to the fuse with a carbon rod running through the fuse. The rod is secured with a screw at the ends of the carbon rod through the bottom of the stabs.

Like everyone else building the model has already reported the rod is slightly too short so you end up not being able to use both screws. I screwed one end into the right stab as per normal instruction but then epoxied the left side of the rod into the stab. This way the rod is always attached to the left side. Just be careful not to get epoxy onto the fuse
side when gluing.

also opened up the center hole bulkhead under the rudder to let you thread your servo leads more easily from the rudder and stabs so they can be threaded into the little FG servo lead tube that leads to the front of the fuse. I used long lengths of telephone wire to help fish the leads through the tube worked a treat.

Re: Ottawa valley jets 2015

Looking like its going to be a green XMAS this year in Ottawa - Getting some work done

Still managed to upgrade Main landing gear struts for the Advanti Mini with new ones ordered from Hobby King - Ordered a Powerbox voltage regulator and will use 2 x 2S-1800 lipos for the models power - also have a Powerbox Gyro.

I now have the Turbine Exhaust Alum pipe installed and the P-20 nicely centered and mounted on the mounts

Need to further order a P-20 sized UAT and a fuel tank

Re: Ottawa valley jets 2015

I absolutely love mine on my 44. So much better with the turbine than fan. It is probably is the most perfect club field jet I've owned. Makes me not want to travel to the airport to fly my bigger ones. No assembly at the field and it tracks on rails. The landing gear struts do need to be upgraded from stock with the extra takeoff weight. My pins never bent with EDF, but bent first flight on the turbine. But it lands lighter with than the EDF.

Re: Ottawa valley jets 2015

Hi Jeremy

Thanks for the info on the Mini - I hope you will join us in Ottawa on July 2nd for the fun

I will soon be retired from Fed Gov and will be re-locating in your neck-of-the-woods in the next year or two. Really looking forward to that

Cheers

Re: Ottawa valley jets 2015

Good info Ken

Can you get a group rate at a hotel that accepts trailers?
