I've been offered decent money for mine and they aren't close to scale. Knocked out the mold and those two in about an hour. Eyeball scale.

You should consider talking to one of our cottage business scale guys who already provide things like cockpits etc. Make a deal for 25-50 pair and let them do the marketing.

Well I have to guess you landed the plane in the second video...looked like you were having to circle for new approaches

I enjoy flying mine too

Hey, guys. I have a new set of the stock retracts (used twice) and an older set I don't need any longer. On the older set, one side doesn't work very well which is why I purchased the new set. If you need a set of landing retracts, I can let both sets go for $25; I'll pay shipping. PM me and I can send a pic if you wish...

Still waiting for good weather to take her out!

Hey Fellas,
Can anybody tell me the diminsion of the main landing wheels? I need to change the worn ones out and can not get to the plane to measure myself right now. New hip I had installed last week seems to have my mobility limited. Figured if I get em ordered now I'll be able by the time they get here.

Thanks, Steve.........

Da Rock, looking at the picture you posted in #1777, what brand of electric gear do you have installed on your Hellcat? Is it proving to be reliable?

Thanks

I'm still flying one. Not exactly sure what you mean by "cowl cutouts". Just make sure you provide plenty of air flow through and around the cylinder head and a big enough exit for the air to get out. I also opened the two bottom cowl flaps on mine.

queasyflier: Here are pics of my H9 Hellcat and the cowl cutouts. I am running a Magnum .91 2s with a pitts type muffler. I think the front baffle is critical. the open cowl is such a large inlet area you cannot get enough exit area. I do not tweak my engines for the absolute max hp. If you do, you may need more area.

I estimate there is about 7.5 sq in inlet and 13 sq. in outlet. Not the 2 or 3 to 1 suggested ratio, but I have not had any heating problems.

Flying at 3700 ft ASL, 90 degF summer temps. It gets hotter here, but I am not generally out at that point.

Wow, big cutouts! I see that you did not cut out the bottom cowl inlets, however. I'm thinking of doing one of those which is directly in front of the OS.91 cylinder head, and using baffling to direct the air. Baffling also in back of the head to direct air out. Or.....just fly w/out the cowl so as not to have a "dead stick" due to overheating! Thanx for the pix though, very helpful.
Happy Landings!
Ken

I have a DLE 20 in mine and the cutouts are about identical to those shown on the bottom. I did not use any cutouts on the side or baffles. About 4 years old and flying fine!

It's a shame Horizon dropped the line of planes that was similar to the Hellcat. I have all but the Spitfire. It died due to a Karbonite elevator servo.

With the success of their 60CC Giant Scale Corsair, I would love to see H9 come out with a Hellcat or Bearcat of the similar size and power specs! Like the Corsair, I would hope they would offer Air Retracts compatibility.

I originally flew my Hellcat with a .91FX and I did not have any non-scale openings in the cowl. I used a dummy radial to baffle the incoming air and the only outlets were the four upper cowl flaps. (And maybe a tiny bit around the scale exhaust outlets) I never had any cooling problems even with the outside temps hovering at near 100 degrees.

Top cylinder was left out of the dummy radial for air to the carb and cylinder and material was removed between two of the cylinders to allow air to get to the muffler.



Here you can see how the four cowl flaps were opened up for air to escape. My airplane is a -5 which does not have the two cowl flaps on the bottom.



The only other place for any air to get out was around the exhaust which exited in the scale location as seen here.

I put flight number 500 on my Hellcat yesterday. Over eight years I have replace the engine once, canopy once, wheels once, and the cowl three times. Of all things, the retracts are original. Fuse, wings, tail, and most of the covering are also original.

I fly off grass so I increased the wheel size. Second canopy also. Still on the first engine; VVRC 20.

Wow Brian! Kudos to you! I'm looking for a right(looking from the front of the plane) wheel-well insert (grey made of ABS). It fell off during flight. Any idea where I can get one or a pr.? Horizon no long stocks those parts. Nothing on E-bay. Otherwise I'll post a wanted ad on this site.
Happy flying,
Ken

Ken, I don't know of a source for one (or a pair) of wheel well inserts. Maybe someone else does.

I have seen comments on other threads about using something like a buttertub to make the inserts.

Good luck.
