for your interest in my 1/144 Kilo V3 Experimenters Cylinder kit. The
total length is about 13.5 inches, and is 2.25 inches in diameter at its widest section.
It has one (3.375") section of 2.25 inch OD lexan tube with two o-ring end caps, and
a (3.5") section of 2.25 inch OD lexan. Plus one 1.5-inch section of 1.75-inch OD
lexan with one o-ring end cap, and one (4.5") inch section of 2-inch OD lexan with
o-ring end cap. It is designed to go into the hull at the split. No hull cutting is
use one Mabuchi 6-12 volt motor to power the model (now included and mounted with shaft
seal installed), and a RCABS ballast system. All the components used are off the
include the components of the Cylinder and a CD ROM with over 115 photos of my R/C design.
Also on the CD are a list of the components I used in mine, where I purchased them, and a
basic text of how I built mine.
Kilo V3 is a more complete kit and more work has been done for you. The basic cylinder is
all assembled, and all the parts machined. All that is required is to add your R/C and
new design has a larger bladder which is now more centrally located for easier trimming.
have added a o-ring sealed pass through tube in the V3 for the wiring. As well as a
propeller, propeller shaft, and bushings.
am including the two RCABS servo output linkage seals as well as the linkages in the V3
kit now as well.
is not hard for anyone to follow what I did, but I do take into account you already know
basic R/C model building techniques. This is one reason why I call it an
try to keep them in stock but as I build them on a first come first served basis e-mail me
with your order and I will contact you as I get your kit done. I will take no money till I
am ready to ship. Thanks for your interest, Dave.
