    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    I am in the process of building number 2. First one I lost after aileron flutter that resonated into the wing. The cause of the failure was due to not lock tighting the aileron linkage between the servo and aileron. I just finished repainting my fuselage. I am also going to do a 3 piece wing. The first bird was an awesome flying machine. That is what convinced me to by another one.

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    Jusy bought my 4th one as my 3rd one is getting pretty beat up, but still flying. I agree, it is a steady flyer ! I lost the first one to a bad battery. Second one to a midair collision. Flying my third one two seasons now. Poulan 42 powered.

    Mike, there is not any drop in retracts available for this plane as of now. I used a set of old Spring Airs and reangled the mount slightly. Bent some 1/4" music wire to fit it in the wheel well. Works pretty good as a bad landing will only pull the ply layers apart. 5 minute epoxy and 30 minutes later, back in the air. Paul

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    I'm looking for information on the control throws for the elevator. Took a lot of weight in the nose to balance it. I was going to put my Thor 45 in it for the weight but thew power lines near Our field took care of that. Added a lot of weight to the nose to get it to balance a little down in from at 4.5 Inch's from the lead edge next to the fuselage
    .

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    After all that work it would make a Great Hanger Queen. That is what they are best for, Mine has been such a PIA I'm giving up. I could have built three kits in the time it's taken to modify balance and repair this ARF. I've had the balance every where it's suggested forward, backward, I have it forward now and I did not have enough elevator to climb out. Aborted the take of and the beast is so heavy now it barfed out the retracts. Now I have to rebuild the retract hangers. I have Top Fight P-51 I could have finished in the time it has taken me to mess with this thing, Any body want it or parts Let me know.

    I've given up on it.

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    That is that is the way to go. More Power. I may put my Old G-62 in it when I rebuild the retract plates. I could take 13 oz of dead weight out of the nose and replace it with useful power.

    I drilled straight through the wing center section a put a wood dole straight through. That take a lot of stress of the center section.

    Off to Warbirds over Delaware. The AT-6 is staying home were it belongs

    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    Hey all!  After a long break, I'm back onto building this plane.  All of you have had great tips in this thread.  I'm cramming a G-38 under the cowl with a pitts muffler.  Tonight I'm trying to beef up the wing, as per your tips.  I hope to have it up soon.  I installed the retracts (i got from this thread) and am close to completion.  I hope you all are still enjoying your Texans!  Mine was a gift from a couple of awesome brothers.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Please let me know if you have any last-minute advice!

    Are you sure carbon fiber tubes can be shipped to a PO box?
