    After some extensive re-engineering, It can be used similar to the way TF engineered their original to work as a simple hatch. I re-did mine.

    ORIGINAL: Ram-bro

    the engine with no load........could cause some damage
    Note as much damage as that lose belt whipping around inside that cowl tearing everything up

    ORIGINAL: n8622t

    The belt is for the prop? I thought it ran the generator

    Is this personal experiences with gear reduction, or are you busting balls?

    I was always interested in these, and would like to know if this is realworld experience, or tales from the crypt?

    Looks really good. I guess it's a good thing is some ways, that FW190 nose parts are never quite right. That way you have the only correct one, after investing the time to correct small details.

    ORIGINAL: wulf190

    An ARC might be forthcoming if enough people email TF for it...so if you want one in ARC, ask and maybe down the road it will happen. The finish on the ARF is ok if you're alright with covering and stuff, but personally I would strip it. If it were glassed and detailed after purchase it could look fantastic. The cowl is panel lined, but not the plane. You will be extremely pleased with it. I would have no regrets buying one.
    I e-mailed Top Flite to find out when the RTC (their term for ARC) would be available. The response I got was that they have no plans to produce an RTC of the FW-190.

    Here's another engine option;It may be overkill but it fits.Its a Zenoha 62 with a Mick Reeves redrive.1:75 ratio .This will turn up to a 28-30'' 2 blade prop so a scale 3 blade prop would be possible maybe?Also is it too heavy at over 7lbs?...I plan on putting this into my GTM 1/3 Fokker D7 which I'm doing right now but I just wanted to check out how it fits in the T/F FW 190
    Hi Steve. I'm flying my Dave Platt FW190 with a modified Torquemaster. No problems at all and the prop is near to scale in dia

    Thats good to see TA152;What kind of mods did you have to do and what prop are you running? Looks great..Also how did it all balance out?

    Ramstein, do a paint tutorial please. The Zgerman paint schemes are the hardest in my book to replicate and I would love to see one done. I have done a 163 but I still have a 190, a 109 and a 335 yet to do
