Man that looks great! Props to VG on the paint job! Can't wait to here how it goes, I'm considering that 65cc myself.

Best of luck!

Hey Kahloq,

Who makes a 2" spinner for use on a TA 152? I can't seem to find one for some reason....

Thanks,

Casey

A 2" 190 spinner? Hmmmm. Closest thing I can think of is the plastic spinner provided with the kyosho 50 size 190A

However....also consider that Hyperion had a 40-48" D9 so they had an aluminum spinner.

It is great how well the Latex paint matched the factory paint. I have to say Kahloq's looks much better in person. These are very nice planes. Can't wait to see it in the air.

Looks great Kaloq....I haven't followed with detail but did just notice that you have the KMP version ...your paint really improved it, can't wait for the graphics

The KMP version? How can that be? The KMP version does not have the leading edge change of sweep-back at the wing cannons.

The KMP version has a straight ARF'ish leading edge all the way from wing-root to wingtip.

Easy to build at the factory , difficult to change.... You can find it "out there", and it is completely equal to the fist pictures we saw of it....

+1. That KMP version has got to be the worst attempt of a FW190 I've ever seen.

Kahlog, Which pilot figure did you purchase?

Got him off ebay for $30. He was already out of the package so was listed as slightly used ( LOL ), but in my case I couldnt care less since I would have torn the box apart anyhow.

There's several on ebay of various luftwaffe pilots. Otto, Hartmann, etc. Some of them aint cheap. Saw a few for $40, a couple at 49, the Eric Hartmann was 65 and another at 99. Just gotta keep checking from time to time to get a good deal.

As for the canopy glue....I'll use the same canopy glue, but much more of it and will add screws like I did on the 2nd A8 canopy

And especially after you scrape his cranium across the runway! Lol

I totally agree....Kondor offered me a great discount on one but just couldn't do it after seeing the ESM

Getting pretty close to flyable. Maiden attempt planned for sunday. Still a few things left to do, such as balancing(obviously important!!! ). Maiden will NOT have the cocpit kit in, nor will the gear doors be on.
Working on the exhaust stacks now. If all goes as planned, the exhaust stacks will serve as balast weight in addition to a closer to scale-esque appearance then the kits plastic things. I also intend them to be functional, so using cast resin ones will not work. I say functional in the meaning that they will serve to get air OUT of the fuse nose area.
Right now what i've got working kinda looks a bit big so I may have to indent the recess for the stacks further inside the nose.

So...basically what Im trying to do is use some 3/4" brass elbows that are at 45 degree bends. The base of each is cut down using a metal dremel wheel to get them to cant outwards. I'm using a vise to crimp the ends to a more oval-ish shape. Since they are hollow, they can be used to get warm/hot air out of the plane...however, to get adequate airflow out from them, I may have to put some little calculator like fans(mini cpu fans) inside the nose to direct the incoming air from the cowl out the exhaust stacks. Thats probably overkill using the little fans, but ive had a pair of these sitting around that I had originally intended to use for a similar purpose on my 80" B-17. I just didnt have the room in that plane to install them since the flight batteries took up the entire inside of the fuse(plane was built back on 2007).

Anyhow...these fans connect straight up to the on/off switch for the RX battery. They draw like next to nothing in power....or can be set up to run off a little 2-3 cell lipo.

Now...I got some bigger 8000mah 6s batteries I wanted to use to get much longer flight times, especially for warbirds over the rockies later this month. Problem is...they too damn big to fit where I had the 6000mah ones. Only way to fit the 8000's is to position them front to back in the fuse nose , but that will require cutting a support former. Im not too keen on that idea. So...will wait to see how it flies and for how long on the 6000's.

There could be a marked for the KMP variant too. I dont know, but.....

A new breed of warbird-fliers are getting interested in warbirds here in Norway now.

It is those who just like to fly, and dont know much about planes, really. They have been flying 3-D and acro
and all that for years, the Tuppeware planes, in short. Light boxes with engine and wings.

In the last few years, they have been "exposed" to warbirds, mainly thanks to ESM.

They expect the warbirds to have Tuppeware-weight, too. Maybe the KMP has just that.

But Dave, going from 19x10 to 22x10 ? Then rpm will drop from 6500 to 5600...meaning speed in the air will drop ?

And hp drops too....can you tell me your thoughts behind this? Is it something you experienced?

That the performance was better with 22x10 than with 19x10 ?
Hi Kwik,

Sorry for the delay in responding. I could not log onto RCU because it was being blocked by my virus detector, and then I forgot!

Yes I understand that the air speed may drop because the motor is turning slower, but you also have 3" more blade producing more push!!

Is it something I experienced? YES!! I have now over 40 flights with the 22x10 prop on my Dora and it's just perfect! Please see my video for the performance I am getting.

Thanks

dave

Kahloq got a flight in today. It went very well. Flew very smooth and had virtually no trim adjustments. We got some pics, I am sure he will post them when he gives his report. Never got over 5/8ths throttle. Landing was a little bouncy, but it seemed that the 14" pitch prop may have not allowed enough of a slowdown to get the wing stalled properly.
Definitely a keeper. Looked great in the air. Now it looks like I will have to do some more airbrushing to pretty it a little.

Just wanted to post first on what I did for exhaust stacks.
I did NOT use the kits plastic vac formed stuff as it doesnt look that great to me.
I got some 45 degree 3/4" brass elbows from Home depot and cut them down and angled them. I then crimped the ends.

I had to build plywood boxes inside the nose as the stock recess wasnt enough for the "more scale" exhaust stacks. Additionally, I added one cpu fan per side insde the nose blwoing air out the stacks to aid in cooling. They are hooked up directly to the on/off switch of the rx and so run when the rx is powered.
