ATTENTION CORSAIR FANS! A really neat "scale" development has just
been discovered that simply must be shared! That beautiful scale
looking three bladed Messerschmitt prop can actually work very well to
provide a better than 1-1 thrust to weight ratio for a cost of only
slightly more amperage than the best two bladed props I've tested while
using a 40 Amp ESC. I added a "maximum power" throttle stop that keeps
the maximum amperage at around 38 amps. I regard 38 amps and above as
strictly WAR COMBAT EMERGENCY mode to be avoided in all but the most
desperate of air fighting engagements.
Normally, after an "F-15" like take off with at least one aileron roll
while flying straight up, the throttle is brought back slightly to
minimize any tendency to burn up the motor at such high power levels.
The extra ventilation provided by bored out exhaust pipes, and almost
unnoticeable holes behind the tail wheel will surely help minimize any
The extra .25 size motor and 40 Amp ESC that I originally purchased for
use on the Fly Zone FW-190 "Butcher Bird" will serve as a back up power
system in case I blow up a motor while flying a little too close to the
edge of the power envelop. Yes, I now intend to make the same "field
modifications" to my up coming Hun Focke-Wulf fighter, as well as my
beautifully fine tuned, looking and flying Mk-IX Spit. Set up for only
belly landings, the PZ P-47 will continue to soldier on with its almost
indestructible, flexible, "automatic variable pitch" prop and continue
to fly under identical conditions as that of our variable pitch prop
equipped P-51 and Wildcat fighters.
Better break off the attack for now and take a little time out to savor
the taste of victory.

BATTERY technology I have found on the web. ENJOY! Oh what fun we are
going to have in the future of flight!
