Dle 20 is perfect for this bird, fg17 not. Also guys glue the servo mounts, the factory glue let loose during flight , luckily no damage.

suggest you pick up the "Fly RC" November 2013 magazine and turn to page 26 and read about this plane...Frank Tiano did this artcile and he has already flown his....Alot of helpful information in his review...Good luck with yours....

Well, I was too cheap to spring for the razorback. Instead, found the other, older discontinued Hanger 9 P-47 with the later style canopy. Seems a lot was bought from likely HH, and sold on EBay at a discount.
The older version is somewhat different in construction, and has a slanted engine mount. Since I intend to go electric, some research disclosed that the electric motor "kit" for the razorback is appropriate, and can
be used. Much less expensive than scratch building the box, etc.

I maidened mine today. I went alone so I wasnt able to get any footage of it, but heres my story:

I will make this a short story actually, I got it up in the air flew around for less than a minute trying to get it trimmed out and realized that I forgot to put the wing mounting bolts in.... Somehow they wings hadn't fallen off yet so I was forced into making an emergency landing before I could get a feel for how this plane flew. On approach the engine died on me, at the same time a strong gust pushed my plane 20 feet to the right and almost tip stalled. I was able to recover and set it down on it's wheels but unfortunately it wasnt a soft touch down, the landing gear is now bent all out of shape. I am lucky that those wings fit so snugly into the fuselage otherwise this would have turned out much worse.

I got the Hangar 9. Razorback off of EBay. HobbeMart had it and it had box damage and supposedly had a couple of very small dings in the wing saddle and vertical stabilizer, otherwise brand new. I got it for $227 plus shipping. I can't find the alleged dings in it. I think I got a great deal.

I am glad you got her down in one piece. I put my TF Corsair in a tree once after a deadstick and it didn't have a scratch on it. Better to be lucky than good, I guess.

Hey Bob,

I did the same thing a couple of years ago with an ME-163.... Freaky feeling when you realize you forgot the bolts. I know of some older Pulsar gliders where the horizontal stabs are just friction fit and that always shocks me as I watch a good friend just pull his stabs off... Glad it worked out.

I have a not so shiny but new H9 Razorback 99% done and ready to maiden. I did some weathering, cowl painting, and other details to make it easy for me to tell mine form others that will be flying at our field soon. I'll post photos when I get it outside to take beauty shots...

I dull coated it in stages to give it a subtle worn look. The first coat I put a few drops of white into my dull coat and then just sprayed the most heavily weathered areas. Then I proceeded to use regular dull coat to spray over the entire thing.... It's very subtle, but it doesn't look uniform like a restored aircraft.... I also have some final airbrushing to do if all goes well like adding some exhaust stains, on my gear doors, and add weathering to my dummy ordnance. All in good time.

I just need to re-confirm my balance, re-check my control throws, and re-glue a couple gun barrels with carbon inserts that I snapped off working on the plane.

I have s Saito FG-21 in the nose and I need to add a heli header tank as a catch tank for the vent line to keep the plane clean. I can fly it without the header tank but I need to get it done.

Photos soon...

Hi Bob,

Currently I have a 15x8 on it for break in... I will change to a 16 or 17 8 later on.

I see that Biela makes a 15x9 4 blade !!! Hmmmm.... I wonder..............

My 125 was only getting about 7800rpm with the 16x8. I'm switching over to 15/8 to see what I'll get

Hi Bob,

I'm new to both Gas and Glow so take my recommendations accordingly... I haven't flown the 15x8 it's just a break in prop. I'll tach it and see what we get. I have about another hour to put on it before it will see the air. It still has a rough spot in the mid range that is smoothing out with the more time I allow it to break in. My DLE20 likes to be loaded for the mid range to smooth out so I'm expecting the FG-21 to like the load of a 16x8 to smooth out the mid range also...

If you're looking for more rpm I might try some 30%. But that's the extent of my real knowledge.

I'm still learning gas/glow and they are much different than the 1/2a pen baddlered GLH's we flew so many years ago.. lol

I did some more scale work on the P-47 and detailed the ordnance.

Here's the real WWII graffiti and how mine came out.

My new 125 was getting that as well, I switched to a 16x6 MAS and get 9300-9500 on the ground now...

I'm nearing completion of mine with a Saito 125 that I'm just now bench running. Does anyone have any pictures of how they mounted the Saito 125 and it's muffler so as not to require butchering the cowl? I have a right angle adaptor for the muffler but am concerned about using it hearing all the bad press about vibration problems. Any suggestions would help.


Thanks

Where did you get the adapter? I heard the ones from Saito have to be used with that extension flex tubing because the muffler is too heavy for it. I ordered mine from some company in Louisiana and they say you can mount the muffler right to it. If you look in my picture in post #29 you can see the tip of my muffler. I may have taken too much cowling off than I needed to but I dont think its too bad.

Thats how I routed it for the most part. The black circle is the exhaust port, the red circle is the right angle adapter, then the extension that came with the engine, then the muffler. I didn't quite get the angel right on the drawing there, its actually a little more angled down than that.

bob8619,

I have the Saito right angle adaptor. Where did you order yours from? Your plane looks really good.

I'm glad you were able to get it down in one piece. Also I noticed you did not install a nose cone on yours. Is it because Horizon Hobbies does not have them in stock or your choice?

Thanks for the quick response.

Thanks. I found the adapter here on the forums marketplace (http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/item.cfm?itemId=940631) I went right to their website though, for no particular reason. The one for the 1.25 is the TH13X1A ...

I just haven't gotten around to dealing with the nose cone yet, I plan on tapping out the one the plane came with to 8mm. If thats even possible, I havent heard anyone else say they were tapping it out so maybe theres a reason for that.

bob8619,

I'm going to order one of these right away. I take it you have had no issues with yours? Also, let me know how you deal with the spinner. I actually tried to order one of those spinners, the one Hangar 9 recommended for this engine, but they do not have stock and won,t have for some time.

Again thanks for the help,

bob8619,

I meant the overall scheme with this particular selction of decals. As you know there are 3 different decal sets.


This is a great video, the best I've seen on this aircraft. Many thanks for sending it along. It's a great motivator!

BTW, I ordered the right angle adaptor from the site you forwarded me so should have it early next week in hopes of getting mine in the air by next weekend!

Speaking of getting ready. What should the Saito 125 idle at and what high speed peak should I get? I'm swinging a 16x6 Evolution prop? It's a new engine with just over 6 tank fulls if fuel through it.

Best,

Gary A
