    Aviation Design Diamond / Behotec 220

    I decided to pull the trigger on this new beast from Aviation Designs. I was kinda on the fence about the looks until I saw it fly and love the looks in flight. The high speed performance is also insane. I think Peter said he tipped 500km/h with the Behotec 220 and the flight logs I saw with his airspeed telemetry was 486km/h in the heat at Wingham this past weekend.

    I have the red/CF scheme coming!!... should arrive tomorrow.

    Landing gear will be Behotec Electric gear with the new highspeed wheels.

    Power will be a Behotec 220 with Projet Telemetry. Also using the Intarco UAT which is my favorite by a long shot.

    Servos will be Futaba BLS172's all around. Twin Futaba 7008 Rx's into a Powerbox Expander and Powerbox iGyro 3e. Will also go with a Powerbox smoke pump if room permits.

    Altecare has some pretty cool stuff right now!!!

    The new Behotec high speed wheels are a work of art. And I have 2 of these Intarco UAT's in operation and love the dual inlets for dual fuel tanks and the clear tank makes it easy to see what's going on inside.

    I am also running one of these V-speak modules on my other JB220... provides awesome feedback to the Tx of all the vital ECU parameters including temperature, Rx signal strength and fuel consumption.

    Ya!! It's a bit of a love it or hate it thing, but it has really grown on me and it is so unique in the air and very visble with the high T-tail.

    Hi Trevor
    YUP your kit left France yesterday, it is in Newark FedEx depot. Should clear customs tonight for delivery tomorrow.
    If you are adding smoke I should too if we are flying together no?

    Here are a couple of pics courtesy of Jason taken on Saturday.

    Looking forward to your feedback on the kit and build, I think you will be surprised at how quick it comes together.

    Too funny Mark! Built by Friday, eh?!! Glad I didn't see that low pass, or I'd be a twitching mess!!

    Ya Peter... let's do smoke!! It'll make for some fun when we try to pull off some tandem flying!!

    I suggest you go inverted a few feet above the deck and i'll fly on top, LOL

    I may not sleep tonight
