Default RE: Heaviest WWII Warbird flown with a G62?

I flew a 42 pound, 100" SB2C Helldiver for 4 years on a G-62. It was an absolute dog, especially on take-off, until I threw out the Zinger 22x10 and replaced it with a Mezjlik 22x10 3-blade. It would turn the Mezjlik at about 6800 RPM. Still took full throtle on take-off but had a solid climb-out and once in the air I could throtle back to between 1/2 and 3/4 and cruise around very scale-like. I could even loop from level flight.

good mate of mine flies a 1/4 scale P51, about 105 inch span. G62 with converted DA electronic ignition and swinging a Bolly 21x12. Weighs 38lbs.

I have seen it fly many times and it flies with great authority.

I had a Ron Weis Fokker D-VIII Razor that weighed 40 pounds. Took a lot of runway to get off, but once up, you had to throttle back as it was too fast.
Plane has been around a long time too. PJ Ash was the last guy to own it.
