Time to mark and cut the Monokote with soldering iron to place the plastic termination piece ...

Thus, the union of the semi-wings is finished, placing a strip of Monokote, since the manufacturer does not indicate anything, but I believe it is necessary....

F1-Rocket EVO by Great Planes. - Page 2 Dsc04720
F1-Rocket EVO by Great Planes. - Page 2 Dsc04721

Everything has been to my liking very well .... then time to replace the original screws of the wing mounting.
I like the accessory that I have more, it is a plastic sleeve and screw, this allows the place where the screw works to never wear out and at the same time has a large pressure surface ... in short, I like to personalize the products when I create what is necessary.
As always, improving a product is not criticizing it, it is simply improving its useful life!

and we continue with the tail group ...
here I also want to replace the rear axle wheel ... I like the aluminum rim so let's get to work ... the replacement of the original is a fact!
When placing the tail skate, you must be very careful, because it is necessary that the epoxy and the necessary lubrication grease play with each other, because there is the secret of a good operation, the manual does not indicate doing this operation .
If you want a free running train, you must grease the necessary parts and you will find good results there!

A good solder with tin and copper wire will be better than any manual set stud. There we go!

Checking that all the parts are square is essential ... everything looks fine!...

then present the engine ... it is the O.S. .70 FS 4-stroke Surpass .... it's a beast!

Well, I am then locating the engine, as I mentioned I will use an O.S. engine for this model. FS .70 4T ...
... looking at the manual, I find that there is an error in the measurement that the manual itself accuses, where it says: 4.5 inches, or 115 mm, it should actually say: 7.5 inches or 190 mm.
If you control the measurement indicated in the instruction manual, you will observe that 115 mm is right on the engine bench itself. Another manufacturer information error.

Well here I am then doing the throttle control, due to the position that the throttle cam remains, a precise transmission control should be done.

Here I find another problem when wanting to install the rudder horn, because it is too low or short and it interferes with the fuselage, which makes it unable to move ... I must replace it.

Ok, now if you can move perfectly!

then we place the depth controls.
I am going to replace the system indicated in the manual to hold both elevons, by a solder joint with a copper and tin wire, this is very neat and safe.

It seems that the components of this kit are standard and are not exactly appropriate for this fiberglass train, since the fastening screws are not able to hold the train itself to the fuselage, (they thread a couple of turns only), due to that the thickness of the landing gear is thick, so I have to replace the original screws with longer ones.
Here it is difficult to get screws in inches, so I rectify the thread of each embedded nut and take it to a metric measurement of 3 mm.
F1-Rocket EVO by Great Planes. - Page 2 Dsc04822
F1-Rocket EVO by Great Planes. - Page 2 Dsc04823

here another problem, the wheel axle is not long enough for the self-braking nut to take it securely, therefore I also have to modify.
... in short, some undesirable detail stories for a model airplane who does not have the tools or the knowledge to change these important points....

Hello dear friends, finally today I premiered the F1 Rocket from Great Planes .... truly the model is very fast and lives up to its name.
The flight is firm, very even and always sustained.
I didn't have to touch any settings for an adjustment, everything was perfect from the workshop.
The O.S. .70 takes you wonderfully, faster than you can imagine.
The passes are truly electrifying, as the model commands a certain respect.
The entrances upon landing are like a butter knife, it just slides like a rail !!
Very happy with the result, I hope you enjoy the video I Love This Forum!

Hi David, thank you for your comment and for joining me in this project.
I'm very glad you like it. The model is very good, really very good.
If you fly doing stunts, you assume that it is the real manned in the air, its line looks like the real one.
The manufacturer indicates to use different motors, electric, or glow, inside the glow it indicates, between a .46 2-stroke and a .70 4-stroke, so I used the latter a .70 4-stroke. Very Happy

Thank you my great friend Eric! .... the plane is really a dream, it flies very well and has a very attractive appearance.
Flying close to me, that's true, from a very young age I always made some risky passes, I really like to feel the passage of the plane and I know that there are high risks, but I also know that everything is perfectly adjusted and controlled. . , although "something can go wrong" ... It is also true.
It gives me an incredible feeling when the plane passes so close to me and I even receive the air that it gives off. Now I don't do it that often anymore, but in my younger years I always did, maybe God was always with me too.

Awesome work man glad to see another rocket going! I also have one which is powered by a .55AX and it goes! due to my prop setup I have to use a touch of flaperon to help slow er down since it comes in fast. I'll see if I can post some pics of mine soon! (Bandit)RC Plane
