    SM 1/5 F-9F Cougar

    New project picked up from Lewiston the other day. Still gathering components for this project but I'm planning tentatively a retrofit to all electric secondary controls: Behotec C50 retracts/brakes, actuonixs on the gear doors/speed brake/canopy etc...

    What I do have for sure is a Behotec JB190 for power (I'll dial down the RPM), new Spektrum 20 channel power safe telemetry receiver... should be a fun jet

    So far I've been flying jets a bit at my home field (RC 400) and at events here and there. Still trying to nail down a good "go to" jet location... I live in Barrie

    Nice jet, congrats! I love the Panther and Cougar. You'll like the JB190 too, I have one in my Skymaster F-4. Hasn't skipped a beat.

    Thanks Mike I remember talking with you a bit at Wingham...you were having an issue with your aileron hinge ripping after only 1 flight.... speaking of which I'm not so sold on this SM live hinging, all mine are binding. I guess I'll do the light sanding technique and try not to give myself a heart attack...lol

    Yes, that was me, I've built 3 Skymaster jets now and I've had to do some sanding on all of them to free up the control surfaces. Can't wait to see your F9 at Wingham.
