Hi,

I am not a company, I just drew them up for the topflite and toprc fw's because I needed them myself. I print them in a special heat resistant material that does not warp like ABS and is a lot more heat resistant (95C) than PLA. Problem is the material called Greentec BDP is quite expensive so the fans cost 40.- a piece plus shipping. I can ship worldwide for 10.-.

They bolt directly to the back of the original spinner (both topflite and toprrc) and the toprrc Fan has 175mm diameter leaving around 3mm clearance to the cowl opening.

I have one of Reverend's fans on my FG90R3 that's installed in the TF FW-190. Excellent fit, well made, reasonably priced

and it looks awesome!

I just got my Butcher Bird, and I have to wait until Christmas before my wife says I can open it up.
Since i don't want mine to look like all the others. I ordered mine without the markings applied. Does anyone know what the plane with the supplied markings was intended to emulate? Maybe the squadron it was assigned to, any sort of history would be appreciated.
Is the base color and patterns anything scale like or just a best guess and that looks about right?
Any three views that are close to matching what the model looks like.
I have Sierra retracts and a GT-80 to provide power.
The white 190 was at several flyins and looked great in person!

The TopRC FW-190 color scheme is fairly accurate. Red 13 was flown by Heinz Bar assigned to 6 Staffe II JG1 in defense of the Western Front circa 1944. An excellent reference book to have is Focke-Wulf FW-190 Aces of the Western Front ($20.00). It has information and photos of Heinz Bar and numerous other FW-190 aces including the color schemes of the FW-190's the aces flew.

Hopefully someone is further along that is using a radial.
Weather and life stuff has gotten in the way of a maiden this year. It will fly next spring and I'll be happy to report on the engine and flight performance then.

Hi guys,

your fans should be arriving soon. I sent them straight off the buildplate so theres a bit of cleanup to do before bolting it to the backplate.



Remove the flash around the outer edges of the fan. Its only 0.4mm thick so its easy to remove. Carefully sand the edges with 300grit sandpaper after removing the flash




Please remove the support grid on the underside of the fan. You can do this by hand. DO NOT damage or remove the bridges! It should look like the picture above after you removed it.





Press the spinner backplate into the fan (its a deliberate tight fit) and use the fan as a template to drill four holes




Using countersunk screws, fasten the fan to the backplate. Make sure you use washers and locknuts on the back!


If anyone is having any issues, drop me a PM!

Rev

Just placed an order for the FW and Sierra gear. I’ve had the P-51 for a couple years now, had some issues regarding the formers coming loose, loose wings etc. How has the FW been holding up? Anything I really need to watch for?

The tail needs to be reinforced. Right in front of the vertical fin. I cut a hatch out to better access it. Sucks because then you have to add more nose weight, but the tail will fail.

Default FW190 fan

Rev,

I like your fan unit and was thinking about getting one. I have the DLE 111 with the starter. Have you been able to figure a way that the fan could work on this back plate with the starter in place?

Thanks

Just got mine today, very nice. I read in this thread that the slots for control horns needed to be cut out. Mine has them done already. Have the Sierra gear and wheels, putting a RCGF 120 in it.
