It is. What have guys been having issues with? The glass to aluminum joint is the only portion I couldn't get apart to check.

Thanks,

Colin

Well, that's a wrap. This was a pleasure to assemble. The only thing I added was a tail skid per another RCCers recommendation. Pics of the finished electronics tray and skid. Maiden tomorrow.

They end up leaking, the original from Intairco doesn’t leak because the glass is hold into the aluminum ends with an o’ rings...and the glass is also user replaceable.

I'll continue to monitor the UAT. I may put a thick bead of fuel tank sealant around the joints after hearing this. Thanks for the heads up.

I put several flights on it yesterday. This thing flies like a pattern plane! I can't think of any reason against this being a first jet. My only regret is not putting a 180 or 200 size turbine in it lol.

Does anyone with a flash mind posting photos of their wing around the mounting holes? I've noticed mine now has small depressions. I'm hoping this is just the foam core of the skin taking a set and is normal.

Thanks,

Colin
