If anyone has a manual that you don't need and would sell that would be great. PM me with details/cost and I can get for him.

He has about 40+ years in RC so he can build it without the manual, but it's nice to have...

Sorry I didn't responded sooner,the short version I've haven't yet,alot of family issues kept me for flying much at all last year.On a happier note things are looking good for 2017 and I plan on flying her this spring. Cheers Rich

Thanks Guys,

NCRC was very kind and sent me the files.

proteus-x3,

Thanks, Keep us posted once you fly it in the spring. There is a fair amount of CG info in this thread, however, it's hard to tell how people are actually balancing the F6F. Some wheels down, some wheels up at various points but it's hard to tell how and where people ended up. With rotating retracts I'd hate to get it wrong.

I know it's a great flying plane and need a solid CG to recommend for success.

Short answer upside down one gear up and the other stowed.since the gear moves aft and chances the C.G. this is the best way. herer read from post #533 Hellcat Brotherhood Cheers: Rich

I finally got mine in the air the other day after a three year delay. I recently found a set of Century Jet retracts that allowed me to finish the plane and maiden it. It still needs a lot of cosmetic work, but I'm glad that it appears to be a pretty decent flying warbird and should be worth cleaning up. A fresh paint job, some Callie graphics and a few pieces from Mr. Veich (hopefully) and it might come together pretty well.

I'm flying mine with a Turnigy 5065-380 motor, CastleTalon 90 esc, 6s 5000 lipo and a 17 x 8 prop. I'm still trying to get it dialed in, haven't tried the flaps yet and looking forward to seeing if they can help slow my landing approaches a bit...
