    Esm Warbird ?

    I've recently aquired a Evolution 26cc Gasser. I'm looking for recommendation for a ESM warbird to put it in.
    Which one requires the least amont of lead.
    Any one fly betterthan the rest?
    I like to here some comments then I'll post what I'm thinking of.
    Thanks,Walter

    RE: Esm Warbird ?

    hi Walter,
    I have two ESM War Birds, the P-47 and the P-51B, no lead in either, but I have different engines, the 47 has a DLE30, with 3 battery packs just behind the firewall, the 51 has an RCG26, also with 3 battery packs, spread about above the wing area.

    Very Important, THE recommended CofG for both these models is WRONG, I dont know how they flew them, they would have been way tail heavy. the 51 would be dangerous at the 158mm they recommend, I am flying mine at 130mm, that is good.

    neither of them are really ARF, both will require quite a bit of work.
    the P-47 is the much nicer model to fly, easier to take off, smoother and more stable in the air, easier to land, but I still like Mustangs.

    I don't have one but I'll be the Hellcat flies great and would be nicely powered with the 26cc. Hopefully somebody who owns one will chime in and confirm but I've never had a bad flying Hellcat.

    I have flown my ESM P-47 Hairless Joe with Evo 26 and a Meijzlik 18X8 for three seasons. Great configuration.

    oldtimer, What are you using three battery packs for? Or are two tied together?

    Hey Chad!, do you still have the Sea Fury?

    RE: Esm Warbird ?

    hello Walter,
    re Battery packs, 1 for the engine, then 2 for the Rx, I use a JR 9x 2.4gig system, the Rx has 2 ports on it, so the extra pack is purely for peace of mind. Which is why I used 2 servos for the Elevators, just trying to keep "Murphy" a bit further away, I use the same set up on all my larger models, another $50, is worth it, I mounted the air tank in the belly pan, that way all the air system is on the wing, no quick disconnects to loose the "O" ring, I also used the ESM Retracts, they are half the price of some, I have only had a few very minor problems with mine, happy with them as well,
    there are several good build threads around, I will add the links.
    the ESM P-47 is a VERY nice model to fly, by far the best War Bird I have, I prefer the look of the 51's but the 47 is much nicer and easier to fly, just read the threads before you set the CofG, the book throws are ridiculous as well

    there is some very good info in those pages, just sort through the rubbish bits,
    Oldtimer.

    Sorry TW, I finally traded off the Sea Fury a few months ago.

    I dig the LA7!
    But I'd want a bigger motor than the 26cc Gasser I have.

    What are the quality of the ESM planes? I like thier selection of planes. I am am familiar with TF and Hanger 9 kits, how do they compare?

    RE: Esm Warbird ?

    The quality has been pretty good on all the ones I have owned. (Dauntless, Stuka, P-47, B-25) They do take a considerable amount more work to complete than a Top Flite or Hangar 9 ARF but the results are well worth the effort.
