    Hi Ron,
    your pilot looks very nice. I have one question. What did you use for the sunglasses, becouse they look very shiny!
    God created aircraft mechanics, so pilots can have heroes too.

    RE: New Hanger 9 P-47 30cc and electric friendly

    Epoxied on the stabs? The orignial ridgeback version had a removable stab, is that not the case on this one? I found it really handy to be able to take the stab off for transport. For a decent size model it becomes pretty compact with a 2 piece wing and removable stabs.

    Great job on painting the pilot!
    Thanks Boltman, yep the instructions call for glueing on the stabs, so they are not removable

    Thank you Prekin, Ace's of Iron have really great painting tips on there website.... I used 30minute epoxy to make the goggle lens

    great tips can be found on there website:http://www.acesofiron.com/home.htm

    Hi Ron...

    I'm about to pull the trigger and get one of these so please keep the posts coming. I'll probably follow your power setup although I fly at nearly 7,000 ft MSL!

    so it has to wait until tomorrow.... I'm going to come home early and get something done on it

    want to get back to my other projects so I need this one finished up and out of the way

    They appear to be overlayed to me... I can't be 100% sure. But they look like it... I would think with heat they would come off. But you may have glue that is hard to get off or damaged the silver as you pull the yellow off. That may be tricky

    RE: New Hanger 9 P-47 30cc and electric friendly

    Ron...

    Great!

    Mine will be here on Thursday (I ordered yesterday at about 3PM local and it was shipped a little more than an hour later).

    I've decided to use my EFlite Power 160 for now and the HV 110 ESC (that I bought from you!) and am waiting for the motor mount kit to be in stock. I probably should order one on backorder to be safe. I'll probably fly on 12S myself, if I find the 160 doesn't complain.

    I've also decided to wait for the Robart retracts (electric). I wonder how much longer it will be before they are available? I'm hoping there isn't a problem with the design. I've used Lado retracts in lots of 60 size warbirds and they worked great; I just hope the larger Robarts work as well. I have been looking at the Wingspan retracts but I've never heard of them and I think I'd rather wait for the Robarts.

    Looking forward to your progress!

    Curt

    RE: New Hanger 9 P-47 30cc and electric friendly

    I just received my T-Bolt this afternoon and will go through tonight and check everything out for shipping damage, etc.

    The big news on my end is that I just placed an order for the Wingspan Models set of electric retracts which they make for this model and will be reporting on their installation, quality and performance as soon as they arrive and I get them installed.

    here's the link:

    http://www.wingspanretracts.com/H9P47

    Looking forward to the build!

    Sweet bud!! you got yours really fast...

    I havn't bought my retracts yet.. wasn't sure which way I wanted to go. Let me know what you think of the quality of the wing span retracts when they show up.
    If you could post a few pictures of yours when they show up that would be great!! I don't know why they can't put a picture of the retract on there website. I heard the owner give some lame excuse that taking a picture and posting it on his web site would take to long

    I might be interested in them... I was thinking about just going with air like I aways have

    Will do.

    Actually, I found the owner (Michael) to be very helpful. I told him I was going to post on the forums bout the quality and performance and he seems quite anxious to get the word out about his retracts. There is another thread here on RCU with some encouraging feedback on the other retracts he has.

    Unpacking the Jug tonight!

    Got all my serovs in now... still have to do final adjustments but I'll wait until everything is done.
    Slapped on my elevator and rudder control horns... painted the cockpit floor black to give it some depth.

    I'll add a seat back and the instruments.... need to run to the hardward store for bolts to mount the motor next

    RE: New Hanger 9 P-47 30cc and electric friendly

    Looking good, Ron...

    My kit arrived with a damaged right wing panel on Thursday but I didn't inspect the model parts until last night. I called Horizon today and they've already shipped out a replacement. They have outstanding customer service!

    I have an Aces pilot like yours but I have no idea how to paint it... I'll have to try and find someone who does commission work. I ordered a Dynamic Balsa cockpit kit today as well.

    I'm hoping my retracts will be here tomorrow or Wednesday... I have everything else except the Tru Turn hub which I ordered today. The will drill the back plate 12mm to fit the motor shaft.

    Sorry to hear about the wing Curt.... Horizon is really good about take care of the issues
    I feel that they need better packing on this plane. It need like a foam sleeve over each part...just the thin plastic seems to do nothing.

    If you go to the aces of iron website they have really great tips on painting your pilot... I'm not very good but really enjoy painting pilots. Been painting them for many years (should be better )

    looking forward to seeing your retracts.... I'm off on wednesday, I hope to fly in the morning and build in the afternoon

    RE: New Hanger 9 P-47 30cc and electric friendly

    Well, my Wingspan retracts arrived in today's mail and I thought I'd post a few pics, especially for Ron101.

    Overall, my initial impression is that they seem to be of good quality, all nicely machined pars and the cycling is *very* quiet! They are also lighter than I expected but with 1/2 inch struts, they should look and perform nicely.

    I have not seen the Robart electric retracts so I cannot compare them "apples to apples". I will say the the Robart tailwheel, with it's shock absorbing piston shown in John Redman's build thread may have the edge on these, however this isn't a really heavy model so it may not be an issue. The Robart tailwheel is basically their heavy duty mechanism designed for very large warbirds with an electric actuator replacing the air cylinder. I will say they all appear at first look to be of good quality and at a reasonable price.

    I did notice that the retract housing is about 1/16 of an inch or so wider than the ply mount in the wing panel but other than that, the mains appear to be a drop-in fit. The strut length appears to be correct as well. I haven't had time to check the tailwheel fit yet but will report as I get started on the model.

    Hope this helps all those on the fence about these!

    Curt

    Shoot Curt, those look pretty dam good
    Not bad at all for $539.95 for the whole set... there $100 bucks cheaper than the E-Robarts

    The Robart air are $464 + a $20 servo for air valve - $484 so you save $75 bucks.... but may have an air leak

    Can you throw them on a scale when you get a chance.... I might be down for a set of these. I'm pretty die hard Robart, but I have electric retracts in my Habu 32 and just love plugging in and flying.

    Thank for sharing your info

    Hey Ron...

    I don't think you would be disappointed but I know what you mean about Robart. Plus, the price includes free shipping. I think the best description I can think of for these retracts is, "E-flites on steroids".

    Personally, I've had it with air retracts. It's only a matter of time before an air leak occurs and then it's Sherlock Holmes time trying to figure out where the problem is!

    Each main retract weighs exactly 8.0 oz and the tail retract unit is 5.7 oz. Not too shabby!

    Hope this helps...

    Curt

    Looking good, Ron...

    I decided (mostly because the Robart electric retracts were in stock at Horizon again) to send the WS retracts back for a refund. I received them a couple of days ago and they are a true drop-in unit. The WS retracts looked very good though but I just got a feeling to stick with a brand I knew.

    I am currently taking my time and ironing the Ultracote down as John Redman suggests and plan to add a few details to the dummy radial and get started on her next week.

    Keep the posts coming...

    I don't blame you Curt.... always good to stick with the tried and true
    I'm just going to slap in the robart airs... I've used air for many year with no issues, so I'm fine with them and they are much cheaper

    It's all in the set up

    Well the more I do on this plane the more I like it.... it's really looking sharp

    I have a few more details I want to add and some paint details I'll work on, but it's really close. I need to order the landing gear ASAP, need to finish a job and get paid then order.

    I added a seat back and head rest to my bust depth cockpit I think it really added to it

    It looks like I'll be in the 21 to 22 pound loaded with packs range... that is pretty light for such a large plane with a 12s 5000 mah setup and an oversized motor

    I'm sure on 10s and the smaller power 160 you would save a 1/2 pound or more.... so 19.5 should be doable
