Well, I now have another project, a Byron f15c jet, this thing is a 106" long, the biggest f15 I ever seen, it's very light, it's fiberglass, I'm thinking it's about 30 years old glow dusted fan model, I'm thinking a 120 to a 140 turbine should fly it nice, right now it weigh 14lb, with just the gear, air tank and servos, will need to build a turbine mount and buy a Y pipe, stay tune.

Ok, a lot has happen, since I last post. The Y pipe I bought is to long, when was going to put the turbine in from the bottom, the Y pipe is perfect, now that Im going to install the turbine from top, its set back about 12", so now I now a shorter Y pipe , more money, I've ordered some Hysol glue, everybody is using this glue, I guess I will give it a try, on the building of the turbine mount. The Jetcat 160 looks small in this f15c.

Ok, guys and girls, got a lot done on the f15, had a hard time finding a person who can make me a bifurcated pipe, some guys are asking about $600.00 for a bifurcated pipe, found a guy in Canada, how made me a bifurcated pipe and shipped for $400.00, pickup a set of 5" wheels with brakes from Robert, started working on the turbine mount, here are some pictures.
