    Hey Ram....

    Im in need of a canopy for the 71'' 190. No one has spares and fiberglass specialties doesnt make anything close enough in size. Got any ideas?

    Here is a question, do you go with Inzpan or Iflytailies for the cockpit

    Jimmy
    I'd go with Iflytailies if you want to see it anytime soon. I've purchased several cockpits from them and have had nothing but good experiences! The cockpit kit from Inzpan took seven weeks to get. One was lost in route.

    I'd wait until the ARF comes out before jumping the gun on the cockpit.. Until we can test fit one be it that the ARF is in between both scales.
    OK RAM...Im going with you on this one. I have a FW190 panel kit from Iflytailies and its a very nice piece so I will at least have that to fit into the cockpit.

    To all interested, Tower just posted some specs on the plane, no manual, but size, engine and a few other notes.

    I personally won't follow the Gov't lead on this PC crap....Swastika's were created 70 years ago so let's not try to change history on account of a few people's feelings.
    I will never place a swastika on my German planes. Never.

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    Swastikas are much older than that. They were a symbol of good luck until the Nazi's used them as a symbol to bolster the spirit of the German people climbing out of a depression. Of course, now they carry a permanent stigma as a sign of deep evil.

    At the Gilchrist museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma there's a picture of an Indian village. There is a swastika on the side of a teepee. Yes it's true that the swastika did not originate with Nazi Germany. It also appears in India.

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    Just when I think I have enough planes and I dont want any more
    ANOTHER one comes out that i cant live without
    I will be getting one of these BIG bad boys

    with the ME 109 and FW 190

    The paint jobs are almost unlimited- I usually try to find a scheme that is not common
    here is a shot of my 70in 190 russian winter not the usual paint job

    if they come out in time-lets have gathering at the Warbirds over Texas 2013 June 14-16 for the most unusual 190

    Whatever you build it is GREAT to have a distriubtor bring out a NEW KIT

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    I seen the TF FW190 in action at Fond Du Lac this past weekend.

    The plane was set up with a DLE 55 and was a rocket ship.
    The Hobbico respresentatives put on an impressive demonstration of it's abilities and I can say it not only looks the part but fly's extremely well. My only negative comment is that the DLE 55 at full throttle makes this thing zip around like a .40 size on steroids.

    The plane resembleded a typical Top Flight flyer. Nimble, precise and very stable no bad habits.

    The assembly is very similar to the P-47 ARC and ARF with a nice Hatch/Cockpit access up front. The Air Tank is positioned like the P-47 and all of the switches and Air filler are pre-cut in the same location.

    For those who would like to convert to electric this should be no problem. Plenty of room and good access.

    Nice scheme but it is common for many. If I was to do it myself I would strip the covering, glass it and do my own scheme.

    The Airframe is solid and it fly's extremely well.

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    this thing i would bet is smoking fast with that 55. I have a sist i put a da 50 in and its smoking fast, but i had to add 4 lbs of lead to the nose. im going to add more motor even though the 85 will be over kill. And the hood guns that come with it simply will need an upgrade

    Terry this plane may have a tail weight problem like you mentioned which could explain why the tailwheel option is a lighter Robart 160

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    You can alway speed up or slow down any plane with "proper" propeller selection. Engine size doesn't have much to do with it. (as long as the engine is capable of flying the plane to start with).

    I've notice the Top-Flite demo guys like speed. Me too.

    Terry,

    The early style gun hood that it comes with is actually fairly close. The one you're showing there is for the A7 or A8. Unless your changing what model it is.

    Nate I think you're correct about the tail wheel. This bird will take everything as far forward as you can get and that still probably won't be enough to balance. I've been surprised with my Holman A8, that even if I put my two 5cell batteries(electric) in front of the firewall, I'd still need more weight to balance.

    The plane is overall very accurate to scale. The only real cheat was the horizontal stab and that was not excessive. Just taking the snap out of a stall:-)

    Then you are looking at it all wrong. It's about historical accuracy here...not a political statment. If you will never put a swastika on your airplane, then that is fine. Just never build a plane that carried one.

    As for the plane, I am looking at getting one to bang around. They were demmo'ing one at Fond Du Lac, Dang if that thing was not approaching 90-100 mph with the 55 in it.

    The hood looks good its the guns that suck. I will make a mold for an A8 gun good for this bird. i have looked and to be up front they did a good job so i dont have a buch of mods for it. The only other thing i might do is make functioning gear covers. I have a feeling the fact the lower half is so large they need to be able to move up and down.

    Since I have nothing but time on my hands, waiting for all of you to do the dirty work. I'll be slowly building and detailing my cockpit. I hope this will fit. If not, it'll at least be done for my Holman Anton.

    RE: TF FW190 A3 ARF

    Yeah, I would agree with Jeff, probably I would guess about 100mph with the DLE in it.....fast enough to make low passes ripping down the runway for sure. Having seen it, I would recommend against going with something like the 85, even if some nose weight is required with the 55. It would be silly power and there's too much throttle that would never be used in any condition really, so probably not only hard on the airframe, but silly to spend that much extra money for something that would never be used. Weight is a lot cheaper than more un-needed power, and there was certainly un-needed power with the 55 in there. It was a great combo with the 55...could fly it scale or make as big of loops as one would desire. A DA 60 would be a better choice if you still want even crazier power than the 55 offered.
