Multiplex Twin-Jet Review
Written by: Nick Furmage (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Twinjet in Black and white and dayglo Fins with Kiwi roundels is powered with standard Permax motors and flown on either 7 X 1700SCR or CP2400's although am going to 8 x 1950 NMIH for that extra punch.
As this is my first plane of this type for a few years due me Rehab for
Spinal surgery I plan on flying this machine a lot to get back my flying
skills. I found it very forgiving in it's flight envelope and other
than me getting behind it on the second flight I will admit the cooling
holes I did in the wing route added to the breakage and will be using a
different arrangement in the next one I like the way Ian's done his cooling
ducts so will go down that road rather than weaking the the root area.
Ian's one Splinter Cameo is also done the same way it has well over 200
hundred flights on it and a few prangs as well but all repaired no problems.
Ian Lewis Web site: www.wattsup.co.nz where you can find many items for electric flight.
The finish was done by using Red Devil light weight filler over the whole service of the aircraft and sanded back as the filler is very sandable and is quickly sanded down. this fills the large gaps left by the Elapor process. Once this done you can then pain it what ever you like I used the Plasticote system of paints.
I'm gonna make a slight change to the paint scheme by adding a dayglo orange nose as the fins really stick out so will make orientation easier.
