Any updates from our squadron here on the P-40 Brotherhood? I have to get my Z-P-40 airborne because yesterday a friend dialed in his Mister 109 and now needs some dog fight practice

I am building a Yellow P-40 and wanted to know if anyone can answer this question. I want to use a G-62 or DA-50. If I do so is a three blade prop possible and waht are the recommnded sizes?

Thanks

Yes, check out Troy built models. They have scale three blade props. Probably want a 20x10x3 or a 20x12x3.

My Meister Scale 109 friend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y33uO0jSZZ0 is running a DLE-55 with a Xoar 3 blade 20x10. I would say this prop would work great with a DA-50, DA-60, or DLE-55. These are all long stroke engines and the G-62 is a short stroke. If you have not purchased an engine, go with one of the others rather than the G-62. I think you will be glad you did.

I am building a yellow p- 40 also been working on it for a few years actually. It's been sitting on the back burner due to the economy. Anyway I have a ZDZ in line 100. But knowing the measurements of the cowl I would think to put a 85cc Engine in it. The scale diameter of the prop for our airplane is 25 inches. I think 85cc would pull a 24X10. 24X12 ? At least that way you will have the correct diameter prop spinning. And I don't see why you couldn't be able to fit it in there

Here are two P-40's filmed in 2011.  Rich Eggleston and Chuck Hamilton.  These two are made from enlarged Bates plans.

I try to fly mine in a realistic manner. I set it up for 2 second rolls and only enough elevator to flare and do large loops. There is something about the P-40 with the Shark mouth. Nothing else quite like it!

I agree with lifer. I fly my VQ P-40 in a smooth, scale like manner. A low pass over the runway followed by a slow victory roll can bring out the cheers from the peanut gallery!!! Follow that up with a greaser wheel landing with the flaps down and you know that it has been a great day at the field as you taxi back to the pits.

Nothing like seeing a scale Warbird flown prototypical; that is why I try to make every attempt to do the same. It is nice to see a solid high speed low past, but the reality is wiped away when it is followed by an unrealistic abrupt pull or bank that would have damaged or broken the structure of the full scale counterpart. All full scales have a max cruse and a max maneuvering speed. This maneuvering speed is the reason for slowing down to dog fight.

Just checking in on the P-40 Brotherhood.

I bought my old Byron P-40 back, so now I have to put her back in the air soon.

Just put a new prop on mine from a nose over that happened last year. Plan to take her out to a warbird meet next weekend.

Be sure to post some photos of your P-40 following the Warbird fly-in.

I am building a Skyshark for someone now, I put in the Robart rotators in. I had to fab a mount but they work. I have Sierra's on mine, but the Robarts will work.

Hey guys I have a few questions. I am currently looking into a top flite p-40 60 arf, and I'm curious could you add mechanical retracts? Or do you have to put the air retracts in? Any info would be appreciated!

This is the retract note in the instructions.

RETRACTS
The choice whether or not to use fixed gear or
retracts is up to you. Retracts offer good looks and
great flight realism with the added expense and
complication. The model is designed to use the
Robart #615 (ROBQ1815) rotating retracts, as
these offer the easiest installation and most
reliable operation. More information on retracts is
found in the “Tips for Competition Minded
Modelers” section and in the construction
sequence. For item numbers, see "Other Items
Required", page 7.

I have had issues with some of the mech retracts, so I would go with the Robart or Sierra retracts. However I did try to find information on the listed TOPA retract option from the TF add on this plane and could not find anything.

http://www.sierragiant.com/prod30.html

http://www.robart.com/air-models/p-40-warhawk-60

Either require air, but I think you would be happier in the long run.

I'm on a budget and can get mechanical retracts cheap and I was just thinking about using them untill I had the money for good retracts!
