Default re the NEW ESM Sea Fury

hello,
Has anyone actually GOT one of the NEW Sea Fury model kits as yet, what size engine did you use, how does it fly, knowing ESM what is the fly CofG, they have been ridiculous in the past for some of their kits, way too far tail heavy, eg, the P-51

did you use the new Electric Retracts, what are they like, I have seen the TBM article, even 15 seconds is a bit slow.

this is an 80 in model, seems to need a 50cc engine, so it will be heavier, are the retracts still the same as the 72 in kits, or have they beefed them up a bit.

thanks, Oldtimer.

The Kit just hit the States. I have one of the first ones enroute to me. I only plan on using it to make a cockpit kit though. It calls for a 30cc Motor...

Hey Ty,

Can you tell us what the firewall dimesions are vertical and horizontal. Just wanted to check if it might be a candidate for the XYZ53 twin.

Cheers Tim

should also handle a DLA 55 as well, (my choice) it is about 125mm, I have one ordered, with the elec retracts, now all we have to do is wait for them to get to Australia, could be May, this year hopefully. even the days of sail were faster than this.

Going by this pic............. then yes. If Ty says the firewall is 8 inches and the cowl is 9 1/2" it should fit fine.

Default RE: re the NEW ESM Sea Fury

I started a thread on this plane a while back but not much interest. Glad to see some others interested in this plane. I have a DLE 55 and some Hitec HS-5645MG servos that I could use in the Sea Fury. Very nice looking plane. I have never had an ESM model so I'm interested in the quality. I already have a winter project but is I here the quality is good and the new Generation 3 retracts are working better than the other versions this will be a Spring project for sure. Here is a video I found.

I see that the cowl ring is not installed in the cowl. Can you tell us how you lined it up and expoxied the ring to the cowl? Thanks.

Default RE: re the NEW ESM Sea Fury

Just came across this thread as I was looking to see if anyone else tried a 50cc size engine. Good to know that I'm not the only one that likes speed. Any mods to the wing strut to strengthen or is the stock set up fine? Looks like TBM is going to have a 100cc corsair sometime later this year. Can't wait till they get into bigger warbirds.
