    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    ramduster......excellent choice on the at-6......great flyer....I originaly had the Euro Kit retracts in the plane but after a year of flying it the gear went to garbage...there not suited for grass fields....I replaced them with robarts 620 at-6 gear and they are stronger and look better installed...I advise anyone wanting to put retracts in this plane to purchase the Robart gear...they are not that difficult to install...a little more revisions to the gear mount area but well worth the effort....and don't forget to install flaps you will be surprised how well they work...

    ramduster...the best spinner is the ( Truturn at-6 texan spinner ) its the same one that was used on the Midwest at-6 and I used the Zenoha G-26 engine that combination is perfect for this plane...

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    Will the gas tank stopper that comes with the kit work with gas or is it glow fuel only.

    The Robart gear will fit...with mods. The Sierra gear that Darrel offers are by far the best quality, and they are made for this plane. You get what you pay for. Mine operate flawlessly. No leaks, no hassles. Check em out.
    It\'s all fun & games...till sombody gets hurt!

    Thanks I have a set of spring air retracts that I will be using but would still like to know if I will need to replace the tank stopper with one that is for gas only.

    ramduster,

    The stopper included with the kit is for glow only.
    The Dubro 400 gas stopper http://www.shopatron.com/product/part_number=400/101.0 is a good replacement. Don't forget the klunk line too!

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    RCPILOT,

    I'm back working on my plane to get it ready to fly in a few weeks. I'm still trying to solve my wing tube issue. Can anyone confirm for me the outside diameter of the wing tube that came in your kit? Mine has got to be WRONG. It's not even close to a decent fit in either the inner or outer wing panels so it just wonr work as a tube for a three piece wing.

    I'm thinking of calling the place that I ordered it but want to be sure first.

    Thanks,

    Ben in SC

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    Benwillis....the wing tubes on my at-6 measure 3/4 of an inch in diameter..and my metal tubes seem to measure just a slight hair under 3/4 inch...you may have to change the metal wing tube diameter to fit...the fit should be fairly close for both the solid wing and the three piece wing...to be a solid connection...some hobby shops and hardware stores sell aluminum tubes in different sizes....

    Where's the best place to purchase one of these Texans?

    Also how many different color schemes do they come in?
    Thanks,

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    ScaleRCpilot,

    It's doing really good, thanks for asking. I'm fabricating a tailwheel now and my Sierra retracts should be here tomorrow. After the gear is installed it will be ready for test flight. After I get it maidened, I'll add more detail and make it look pretty.
    The flaps came out better than I expected. I can't wait to fly it!
    I'll post some pictures soon and some video of the maiden flight.
    Only 7 weeks until Warbirds Over Delaware.

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    Mystar46,

    I can't wait for the video! I have been finishing my work shop and still have a few things to finish before I can begin on my silver t-6. I will be ordering the Serria retracts soon, so I will have them. I will add flaps as well. Probably G-26 but still have not ruled out a big ole 4 Stroker yet! And a 2.4GHz Radio system. We have a couple weeks to go here before the Warbirds over Bomberfield should be a nice event but its already hot down here. Never seen 100 degree temps in May. Good Luck with your t-6!

    Trevtt600,

    I don't know of a bolt-in interior and think most are being built from scratch.
    Good Luck!

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    I ran my engine for the first time yesterday. I have the Zenoah G-26ei. This is the best motor out of the box that I've ever owned. It started right up with an electric starter, did not need any tuning at all, and started by hand the second time on the 4th flip. Here's a quick video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsQ-qWMkWMA

    I had some problems with my elevator control and need to do it a different way. Glad I found out on the ground instead of in the air.
