    I was just gonna say that myself Bob.

    Mx240, you should be able to draw a line between the centers of both crosses, from wingtip to wingtip.

    I built them straight like the previous ailerons that came with the kit.

    Ahh I guess that would be the way to go then,just wondering because the full size and other r/c designs include some washout.Guess T/F figured right on that one because it flys so well

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Ok, here is my setup. I knew what I wanted but didn't want the actual hinge to show...Not scale. I had to wait for the weather to clear for the HS run. Another $250 invested in this one. It really adds up..[] I'll clean the lines up later.

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    A little more access.. Is it too much?? I still have some work to do. I used magnets in some areas just to pull parts in cleanly. As I go, I see areas that could be filled and strengthened a little so I'll work this tonight. When I'm satisfied, I'll hysol everything. I think I've complicated this build enough..

    lol, thanks. I enjoy doing these mods. The FW190 is my bird of choice, not my favorite as I like no others... I just tolerate them..

    Are those pop rivets you used there Ramm? That DLE 55RA looks like a good fit.

    Pop rivits? Plenty of space with the DLE. Wonder what the G62 would look like.

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    I am gathering parts for the wolfe. Getting the retacts installed and planning out the motor box mods for the Saito radial. Some might be interested in this pilot [link]http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=28227[/link] from hobbyKing, Its quite cheap and comes prepainted. I believe its the same size as the pilot featured in the build manual. It fits and looks great for under $12...

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    I am going to install the 450r. I temporarily mounted it up on the fire wall with sheet metal screws. Its a bit too long for the cowl (less than 1/4 inch). The valve covers are hitting up front. So I can shorten the motorbox by.25" or slide the gun cover forward a little, or add a ring around the front of the fuselage. It really is that close to fitting maybe 1/8" off.

    Manfred: The wheels were provided to me by the person for whom I'm building the plane. They are 5" diameter with aluminum centers, but there's no name on them. I'll text him and ask if he remembers.


    UPDATE: He just responded and said they were either Robart or Aeroworks.
