Great article, please advise if plugs you made for venom are stil available, if so could you pleas quote me on a set of all mouldings, also do you know if the faults found have been addressed by manufacturer.

Kindest regards

Not at all, I had a PM from Cliff earlier today regarding the MR Venom just querying what the current issues were if I knew. Superb flying model but if approached without foreknowledge, a little exasperating at at times.

Ian, has MR corrected the issues you raised such as the boom attachment angles etc?
A400M GRIZZLY!.... er nope.  A400M ATLAS! .... er nope. A400M FATLASS! ....er nope. A400M AT LAST!

IB

So I believe, a friend has just completed one and he reported the angles were correct. It flies on a Wren 54, more than adequate.

Thanks Ian. This is a great thread and I think I may have to have a Venom.

Hi Ian , thanks for reply can I ask what your finished weight of your venom and as to the pro linkx retracts do you know the type your mate is installing as two possibles, one showing up to 8kg and the others at up to 20kg, have you got any photos of your revised linkage of your front doors as you state you have fitted balljoints

Regards Tony B

IB

The Venom finished up at 22-23lb dry though I removed some noseweight which I thought was around eight ounces.

Not sure which of the two sizes he's fitting but I would go for the larger size to err on the side of caution.

No photos to hand but the ball joints are attached to the strut ( drilled and tapped ) and the other end fitted onto the door into an elongated slot to allow for the noseleg steering and retained with small collets.

Dear ALL MICK VENOM BUILDER .

Can someone advise me where is the location for the fuel tank ??/

please assist

Glad I read this thread.  Awesome job but as I am considering a Vampire or Venom I shall knock this one off the list with its many faults.  Why on earth would anyone buy the ready cut wood only to accept that it needed binning 'cause it was wrong and then make their own.  No other business would survive with this attitude.

I realise this thread is older than Moses but nevertheless it is an interesting read and a top notch builder in action. I have a question I am hoping someone can answer please. What scale is the MR Venom?

jetster

Just found it it is 6th Scale as I worked out,

Hello Ian,

I realise that this is an old thread and you are probably sick of requests for tanks etc. I have just bought a Mick Reeves Venom here in Australia. It is of unknown vintage so I will treat it as one of the early ones. My questions are;

Do you still have the rib profiles somewhere? There is a local kit cutter from whom I can get new ribs cut.

Are your custom tanks still available? They look like the easiest and best way to go.

Is your Venom still flying?

Thanks for your time Ian
