The main tank is delivered in two halves. Accessories such as hoses, pendulums, etc. are not included. After accessories´assembly, the two tank halves are bonded together; a surrounding ribbing on one tank half will guarantee simple and fuel-tight glueing.
The tank com - ponents are easily accessible for maintenance purpo - ses.
The guiding tubes bonded in the fuselage have a strong connection to the two central fuselage frames, so that the aluminum tube inside are optimally supported at the most stressed areas.
The wheels of the 2 5 % glattCAD He-162 have a diameter of 160 mm and a width of 45 mm. The struts are about 190 to 195 mm long (measured without the pin, to the wheel axis). 40-size electric retracts (for take-off weights of up to 17 kg) are recommended for the landing gear. The four-part mounting frame consists of a composite of 3 mm birch plywood (6-fold cross-bon - ded) and 3 mm fiber glass material. It is multiply tounged and grooved with the adjacent components.
As with the original, the two gear doors can be controlled by mechanical gimbal drives, but opening and closing works more reliably using two small servos. The corre - sponding frames have been prepared. Putting these door servos in a logical dependence on the movement of the undercarriage, the real behavior can be simulated. The doors are fiber glass-lami - nated in molds on both sides. This also contribu - tes to the typical look of the original.

Landing gear Electron Retracts er-40evo (o. com- parable): - Main landing gear 95° - Front landing gear 100° for JET version: Turbine 120N .. 160N for EDF version: Schübeler DS-82 m. DSM6043-650 LiPo 12.000 mAh @ 14S Wheels D=152 .. 160 mm x 45 mm
The equipment with a 120 mm electric ducted fan E D F (e. g. Schübeler DS-82 m. DSM6043-650, 12,000 mAH x 14S) is also conceivable. For this purpose, a performance-optimized duc - ting was developed. If you choose this version, the weight should of course be kept in mind with regard to the installa - tion of accessories and „scale“ features.
The glattCAD He-162 is available in two variants. A turbine with a thrust between 120 and 160N is ideal for jet propulsion. In this variant, the "Scale" model can be equipped with multiple electronic components. The wing load is then comparatively high, the pilot should have experience in jet flight. The machine can reach a take-off weight of 17 kg. A tank adapted to the special geometry of the salamanders with a volume of 3.55 ltr. is offered. It extends a little into the main gear bay in order to keep it as close to the center of gravity as possible.
It is sufficient to secure the jig with a few weights or needles on the construction table against slipping. As soon as a few more components have been installed, a fuselage or a wing half can be easily trans - ported to another work station together with the jig . An even table, a door from the hardware store, or a simple, flat board with a minimum length of 225 cm is sufficient as a building board for building all components.
Formers, wing halfs and tail plane ribs are provided with small „legs“. They are put into corresponding slots of the poplar plywood „jig“. A warpage in assembly is practically exclu - ded, provided that a straight con - struction board is used as a base .
A high-quality STRONGAL® fuselage/wing connecting system from Petrausch Modellbau with tube thicknesses of 20 and 16mm ensures safety. Assembly on the above-mentioned jig guarantees an absolutely parallel guidance of the two tubes in the fuselage center section and clip-on wings.
A wide variety of forces and moments act on the central unit: lift, G-force, acceleration, landing impacts. It was essential to design this assem - bly light-weight and yet stable. The central unit's job is to distribute all forces widely across the cell.

To protect the wings from slipping off the fuselage, a tenon with a resin-coated M6 nut is provided in the fuselage-side root rib. It reaches into the corresponding receptacle on the wing side to be secured from the underside of the wing with a nylon screw.
Animation: Main Landing Gear
The front landing gear has also been given a double-sided laminated fiber glass gear door. There are various options for door control. A servo frame for a small servo is provided. The wheel measures about 95 mm in diameter, the width is about 36 mm. An 40-size electric retract with a “reverse” nose gear mechanism is ideal. Then the steering servo sits in an aluminum or fiber glass frame that is also moved when extending/retracting, see animation.
Animation: Front Landing Gear
There is space in the fuse nose above the landing gear, e.g. for lead and two receiver batteries. The frame for the retract consists of a composite of 3 mm birch plywood (6-fold cross-bonded) and 3 mm fiber glass.
Pilot´s eat, joystick, instrument panel, side consoles and the two-part cabin rear wall can easily be removed out of the fuselage. Even in case of a space-consuming buildout of the cockpit, there is comfortable access to the interior of the fuselage and into the space above the front landing gear (in front of glare shield and instrument panel).
If the small pin - At the original this is the control indicator of the undercar - riage lock - is pressed downwards against a tiny spring, the bowden is pushed forward unlocking the canopy. Below there is room for lead, RX batteries and smaller electronics.

For upgrading of the canopy interieur, several special kit parts are provided: Glare shield with front landing gear suspension Reflex visor Instrument panel with frames and acrylic glass Joystick (3D-printed) Pedals Pilot´s seat Side consoles, center console Front gear bay with window Machine gun outer tubes
Two 12V fans with protective fences, (not shown) provide extra air while the model stands on the ground. The warm exhaust air is directed t h r o u g h the main landing gear bay and fur - ther behind it o u t w a r d s through a series of ope - nings in the fuselage bottom.
A sophisticated air supply system has been developed to keep the ESC cool inside the fuse and to avoid it to be integrated into the airflow of the duc - ting in a performance-reducing manner. The jacket pipes of the two on- board MGs conduct the air on both sides into the fuselage interior. The right is connected by means of a bushing to a guided corrugated hose, which ends immediately in front of the frame on which the speed controller is attached.

Access inside Fuselage

The EDF drive variant houses the large battery pack in the model´s fuselage (e.g. 12,000 mAh x 14S). However, easy access to tank and hopper tank is also desirable for the JET (turbine) variant. Due to the design, the access via the canopy makes sense, as the fuselage back is covered by the jet engine´s piggyback.
As with the original, the rear part of the canopy can be tilt upwards.
The seat (can be equipped with a full-body pilot's doll) is guided and fixed in a rail system along the cabin rear wall. It just needs to be pulled up.
Now the two-part cabin rear panel can be also removed. It adheres by means of neody - mium magnets in the cabin rear wall´s frame (slanted fuselage former).
Access to the battery pack (or kerosene tank) is free. In some cases the battery pack needs to be rotated still inside to be removed through the open rear wall.
If you turn the circular bearing frame on top of the turbine piggyback against a small tension spring, the access panel can be unlocked and removed from the model.
The cap of the JET variant is slightly longer than that of the EDF variant. In order to be able to meet the requirement for the centre of gra - vity position more easily, the turbine is installed a former compartment fur - ther forward.
Four beechwood tenons guarantee the safe fit of the removable maintenance cap.
The tail can be completely removed for transport. It lies exactly in an indentation of the fuselage rear end. A fiber glass tongue extends centrally from the empennage´s "nose" forwards into the corre - sponding groove in the fuse - lage.
The tailplane is secured by a screw, which is inserted from below through a guide tube through the fuselage. All servos are loca - ted in the tailplane.
The electrical connection is done automati- cally via a reliable connector when lin- king the empennage to the fuselage.

Battery Pack Locking

(Variant EDF)

The battery pack (variant: EDF ) is mounted on a milled fiber glass board stabilized by a small vertical web. The board can be placed on four short threaded rods and screwed in this way. The position of the battery carrier in the fuselage is variable within a certain range and can thus be adapted to the requirements of the center of gravity.

ESC and Battery Pack Cooling

(Variant EDF)

Sufficient space would be available to install the tank fur - ther forward in the fuselage, but the center of gravity would vary with the current gas level in the main tank. A special tank was therefore developed extending a little into the main landing gear bay.

12.

Tank system (Variant Jet)

Any cable that is to be routed over a longer distance in the model can be ducted in a thin-walled tube. Long "Sangria" drinking straws are used for this purpose.
All relevant holes in the formers and ribs are milled - here the connection bet - ween the nose section and the main landing gear bay.
