Hi Ken : Good idea I think to strip everything out and start from scratch and do upgrades over the winter. I went with the Pro link electric retracts and electric brakes
and pretty happy with that. I also think that the Spring Air system would be borderline at best.
The underside of the H stab got foil tape and seems to fair well. Every once in a while I do a feel check for temp just after shutdown and when the turbine is doing the auto cool down.

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

Does anyone know of a source of replacement plastic parts?

Servo covers, Wheel wells, Cockpit windshield, etc

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

Altecare stocks the servo covers on this page;

As for the rest, Peter can probably get them or get ahold of the new Boomerang jets guy in the us.

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

You might get a little extra speed with more thrust and fuel burn but that is one draggy airframe.

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

One of our guys has an ATJ140 in his, he got it up to 300kph... So not bad.. LOL. I am not looking for more speed, it's just far less expensive to use what I have then buying another turbine.

In terms of flight time and fuel burn it's not much more then other guys that have smaller turbines. With 30+lbs of thrust you can fly around at 1/3rd - 1/2 power and it still moves along pretty good.

That's what the build manual calls for so you're good.

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

Hi Guys

Replaced the Y-harness for the Ailerons with 2 separate servo extensions so I require
2 RCVR channels to run the ailerons. Shrink wrap the connectors. Getting this done was fairly easy using copper phone wire to fish the wire through the wing/fuse going under the wing tube then pulling the wire
back with the extension connected to the wire.

Re: The Boomerang Sprint Club

For fishing wire thru wings and things , I found that a fuel pickup with a string thru the centre and knotted with the pointed end , pointed down or direction of travel , worked well for me. Move the wing or what you are trying to " thread the needle" with , works.
