Just a few bucks each depending upon whether you want them raw or finished and painted. Shoot me an email N99JH and we can discuss the details. cwveich@cwvmodels.com

Question for those running the Top RC landing gear.
1. What servo are you running in the tail? Wondering if an 80 oz/in mini would be enough?
2. Did you have to modify the stock ball link locations on the tail gear doors to get it to function correctly?
Thanks

Repainting entire aircraft and fixing up cockpit a little. Was thinking of salvaging USAAF Insignias but they are out of proportion on wings so I cut my own stencils for everything.

Built a radio box in CAD and got the fuel caps in from Chad Veich, Chad did a great job on the caps. Radio box is in primer / sanding stage now, will add cable details later.
Does anybody have a link or know what is written on the Radio box and battery box placards? I'd like to print my own.

There are three of these at my club including mine. I must have gotten a Friday afternoon build. My wings are flexing and I can't figure out what to do anymore to fix it, I'm thinking of drilling through the aluminum holders in the fuse into the tubes and using bolts to screw them together. Now my formers have all pulled away from the fuse as well. I can't score a win with this plane.

Almost done with radio compartment. Made the VRC-522 radio box but kept the original battery box (except for the small external attachment on the side that I made). May have to sand fuel caps down a little more flush.

Also finished markings. Made paint masks and airbrushed everything including crew plate.

Hey guys, Hoping to tap into your experiences with the TopRC P51. I have the Robart electric retracts with the Robart retract control unit. My radio is the Futaba T12FGA. From researching this and other forums, I still can't find a solution for the gear door sequencing. I've read about the ESM and the Assan gear door sequencers. Its not clear from reading the instructions if either is compatible with Robart retract control unit and if the Robart CU can be used if using an external gear door sequencer. Also there's no information I can find that the 12FG can support a program mix to sequence the doors like most of the newer radios. I'd like to know how you guys would add door sequencing using the hardware I have. I'm open to other external sequencers or other hardware to make it work. I'd appreciation all input!

Thanks,
Keith

I used the Asassin sequencer with the TopRc gear . Same situation. Get a Y-harness. plug it into the gear port on RX then both controllers into the Y.

Or you can: Take the gear door controller put it on an auxiliary channel slaved to the gear switch.
