F-80 & T-33 Shooting Stars
for EVF or Turbine Power

Conversion Packages - New for 2012

  There are several early F-80 and T-33 kits that have been sitting around for years.  They are in various stages of completion from new-in-the-box (NIB) to having been flown with D/F or Turbine power.
  The below list of parts packages were developed to build the prototype EVF models that we have been flying and are included in the new, all composite versions of the F-80 and T-33.
  These parts can be used to convert/update the early balsa covered foam wing kits and the Obeche skinned foam wing kits to the very efficient EVF ~3~ 12s power.  The new instruction manual covers both the F-80 and T-33.  The full size CAD drawings are specific to each version of the Shooting Star.
  It is the customer's choice as to which parts packages you wish to purchase and how much of the conversion fits the state-of-build of your model.  Please understand that we can not breakup a package to sell one or two parts.  It would be labor expense that could not be covered.  It may be helpful to order the instruction manual and plans first, then order the parts by the package number as shown below.
  Both the BVM F-80 and T-33 have placed high in recent scale competitions because the outline is true to scale and because they fly and land very well.

Note:  If your Shooting Star has the original balsa sheeted wings, give us a call for information about adding more strength to those structures.

WING TANK CONFIGURATION



 

 









Main Gear Flex Mounts
for
Early T-33 / F-80 Kits

  The early BVM F-80 and T-33 kits used molded C/F plastic, then machined aluminum plates to mount the retract units. These retracts utilized separate air cylinders to operate.

  The flex mounts and doublers available for these airplanes are now machine cut from Carbon Fiber plate stock.

  The reinforcement doubler plates come as one part for manufacturing convenience. Simply cut them apart at the tab and file off the remaining stubs.

q Scuff the doubler C.F. plates with #80 grit and epoxy glue or Slow Zap them to the top surface of the main  flex plates using the 4 holes to align.

q Use a #89 bit to drill out any glue, then tap with #4-40.

q Use the longer 4-40 flat head bolts (supplied) to mount the retract units.

Part # PA-SR-0041  Price $48.95
