    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, just bought a new Y pipe for the Byron f15c, now I can mount the pipe and start on building the turbine engine mount.

    Ok, don't laugh, I don't like this rudder setup either, I will chance it later to a flat plate setup, where the servo is in the rudder.

    Ok, I have the top cut open, seem a little weak, I will reinforce the edge, going to use ceramic magnet, they seem pretty strong to hold the hatch down, I may reinforce the top from side to side.
