    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Good luck finding one... Most places show "back order" because H9 has discontinued the 60 size Hellcat.

    As soon as I saw H9 discontinued the Hellcat, I dashed over to my LHS and took the last one they had in stock... :-)

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Hey guys,
    I have a H9 Hellcat that I will build this winter and was wondering if a nice Satio 82 would be enough power for this plane?
    thanks,
    Frank

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Hey Frank
    The 82 will fly it marginally - ie you will be 3/4 to full throttle - and only if its well broken in to spin a 14x6 @ 9,000 RPM or more. You will need nose weight or install batteries in the cowl area.

    A Saito 100 is ideal, a 125 or DLE 20 is too much but can be tamed down with a 15x7 3-blade prop.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Thanks for the reply. I fly off grass so is there a need to improve the retracts? I would like to stay with mech. retracts.
    thanks,
    Frank

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    The struts are flimsy and the mech retracts have a weak part that will break: the collar with the ball link that rotates the strut.

    But you can try them and see what happens. I used Robart 615s and later Lados, both worked well.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Can't replace the H9 Hellcat as they are OUT OF STOCK and discontinued. I still want a Hellcat and thinking of going bigger, maybe a EMS Hellcat 72" wingspan. At least they come with flaps. Anyone want a set of Century Jet Retracts with wheel well doors, (the whole system) slightly used but cheap, for a H9 Hellcat?

    A great motor for the Hellcat...just be sure to keep after run oil in the case after de-fueling

    A new plane can still be bought....one piece at a time...just very expensive...I just bought a spare cowl, canopy, and retracts

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Funny, yesterday I also ordered a spare cowl and canopy for my 4 1/2 year old H9 Hellcat. Fuel tank stopper just started leaking in my plane so I included a new fuel tank on my order.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    My next step is to put the h9 p51 struts with some modifications on my hellcat, I decided to do a patent to place them but to make them more robust! Initially I cut the leg to the desired length and having bought screws 6x10 opened the taps with appropriate pass.Now it remains to cut the screw in length and must go to a lathe to be eaten 4mm to pass the mechanism! I think its a simple patent and yet to see it in action!

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    A question for anyone who knows and can help, what is the easiest way to paint panel lines and weathering on the model??? One solution I think is to Scale Warbird Template of top flite and marker panel line pen of top flite http://www.top-flite.com/accys/topr2187.html and http://www.monokote.com/ accys/topq2510.html but then I have to put something on top to protect the panel lines? Another way is with an airbrush but I have never worked and i have a little fear! I expect opinions, thanks!

    Does anyone know where to get scale strut covers. I have seen a couple guys in this thread with some. Anyone want to mold me a pair? My Hellcat should be RTF next week.

    I have the gear doors if that is what you're after rcavi8ter.

    Where can I find such gear doors???
