Re: Peak model MXS-R 30-35cc build

Hi, Popsy. I am curious about the wing tube on your Peakmodel plane. A few years ago, two of us at our club bought 30cc Peakmodel planes. One day, the wing tube on one of them broke in flight during very mild maneuvering. The tube snapped at the wing root. Upon close inspection, it turned out that the wing tube was not made of carbon fiber. It was made of some kind of dark resin, with a single thread running through it. It snapped like a piece of chalk would.
I hope Peakmodel stopped using these wing tubes on their newer planes, but it is worth checking before you go flying.
On a carbon fibre wing tube, you should see the build up of layers if you look closely at the ends of the tube. On the Peakmodel tube I have, the ends look solid.
The surface of the tube will also look different. I have included a picture of my Peakmodel wing tube (on the left), a Pilot RC CF wing tube (middle) and an aftermarket CF tube (right) for comparison. The picture is not great, but my Peakmodel ‘resin’ tube is more of a black semi-gloss colour, as opposed to the typical CF charcoal colour, like the one in the middle.

LPII, thanks for the info... But the one i've got is on the charcoal color side.. looks to me to be carbon fiber. I have another Peak plane here ( Corvus ) and no problem so far with the wing tube. But we never know !!! I will check after a few flights.

Good. If they are now using proper CF tubes, you should be all right. Enjoy your new plane.

Re: Peak model MXS-R 30-35cc build

The death of the MXS-R ..... Couple of causes....

1- the first fortitude fuel tank V1... brand new, has leaked.
2- The first fortitude smoke tank V1.. brand new has leaked...

Went out and bought two new ones. V2 version of fortitude tanks..

3- The V@ tanks were ok, no leaks ... Ok so far...

4- The cheap smoke RCexl pump, leaked from the nipples as well as its seams !!! result.... all of the ply and balsa had absorbed all of the smoke, oil...

On its maiden, started the engine, she pulled up and HO BOY..... I've managed to get her back to aligne on the runway... but she just falled... gosh... lolllllllllll I will be buiding the second one without the smoke pump lolllllllllllll RCEXL pump... I will not recommend lolllllllllllll
