Instruction Manual F-15 Eagle
DISCLAIMER 6mmFlyRC guarantees our kits to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component parts damaged by use or modification. In no case shall 6mmFlyRC's liability exceed the original cost of the purchased kit. Further, 6mmFlyRC reserves the right to change or modify this warranty withoutnotice. In that 6mmFlyRC has no control over the final assembly or material used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the userassembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. If the buyer is not prepared to accept the liability associated with the use ofthis product, the buyer is advised to return this kit immediately in new and unused condition to 6mmFlyRC for a full refund. While this kit has been flight tested for normal use, if the plane will be used for extremely high stress flying, such as racing, the modeler is responsible for taking steps to reinforce the high stress points.
*Special thanks to Steve Shumate, who not only has provided theinstructions for the T-38, F-14, F-15, F-18, and Saab Gripen, but has provided much needed support to 6mmFlyRC. Without Steve, our job would be much harder.
This model was designed to be built from either BlueCore fan-fold foam or 6 mm Depron foam. If using BlueCore, note you’ll need to peel the film backing off the fuselage exterior parts to allow sanding the fuselage corners to shape. Leavethe film on the wing and empennage parts since it adds strength, durability, and smoothness. This model can be built using the following types of adhesives: • • • • • • Epoxy Odorless cyanoacrylate (CA) with accelerator UHU Creativ for Styrofoam (or UHU POR) 3M 77 spray adhesive Hot glue gun ProBond (or Gorilla Glue)
To minimize weight, try to use as little epoxy as possible on this model,saving it for only critical joints such as wing spars and motor mounts. The majority of construction should use a lightweight and quick-drying adhesive such as CA, UHU Creativ, or 3M 77. I personally use 3M 77 and UHU Creativ (picture at left) for the majority of construction. Begin by cutting out all of the paper parts templates with scissors, trimming them to within approximately 1/8” of the lines.Then test fit all of the templates onto the foam sheet, trying to minimize wasted foam as much as possible. Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement, remove each template individually and spray the back of the template LIGHTLY with 3M 77 spray adhesive. Then replace the template onto the same spot on the foam sheet. Repeat for every template. After all the templates are tacked onto the foam, cutout all the pieces by cutting on the lines with a SHARP hobby knife. When done, peel the paper templates off of each piece and discard.
1. Start assembly with the forward fuselage. Lay the two fuselage sides down flat on the work bench and glue the foam corner doublers to the locations shown on the plans. Make sure to make two mirror image parts—a left side and a right side. Either3M 77 spray adhesive or UHU Creativ works best for this step. [Note: These photos show the prototype model, which used balsa triangle stock at the corners. The updated design now uses foam strip doublers at the corners, which are just as strong and can be sanded to a more rounded shape.] After the glue has dried, glue the three fuselage bulkheads to one of the fuselage sides at the locationsshown, making sure they are perpendicular.
2. Next glue the two fuselage sides together. Set the sides upright and flat on the workbench, apply glue to the edge of the bulkheads (contact glue or odorless CA recommended), and push the sides together. Note the aft end is left open at this point—it will be glued together later after the aft fuselage assembly is attached. After the glue has dried,...
