    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    The only tri-color Hellcat that swung a 4-blade prop was the second prototype, XF6F-2. Don't remember seeing any production tri-color Hellcats swinging a 4-blade prop. The OS 60FX can't swing a decent size 4-blade prop anyway.

    Overall "glossy sea blue" would look nice. I like to see a video of someone flying this plane with an OS 60FX swinging a 4-blade prop.

    The RCV 90SP or 120SP would swing larger diameter multi-bladed props [8D]

    I hope the retracts are decent in the Hellcat. I really want to get one but I want to see what the opinion of the gear is first. I have an OS 91 Surpass that needs a home!

    I'll be doing a Product Review on the Hellcat using the new Zenoah G-20 gas engine.

    Plus an engine test too

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Just got an e-mail from Horizon: they will be shipping mine next week. The manual is now available for download (Adobe reader required). Looks like the servos will be in the fuselage, above the wing, instead of in the tail as they have done on past warbirds.

    Hellcat manual:
    http://www.horizonhobby.com/ProdInfo...cat_manual.pdf

    Beats me why anyone would want to stick a 2 1/2 lb, $340 2 cycle gas engine in an 8~9 lb warbird, just to save on fuel costs, when a 1 1/4 lb, $265 4 stroke engine (Saito .91) would probably supply more than enough power, AND sound a helluvalot better. Oh well, to each his own.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    I can tell you the answer to that question. Because Hangar 9 and Horizon asked me to do it for our Product Review and Engine Test in the magazine.

    That's why.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Hi Everybody!


    Iยดm brandnew here and I also intend to build the new H9 Hellcat.

    What retracts will you use? I thought about a CJ for the H9 Hellcat.

    Iยดll use most probably the Saito 100 or the OS 91, which also will provide enough power (in my opinion)!

    Greetings from Vienna

    Dick,
    Let us know how the retracts are. Hopefully H9 has listened to us and made them a little stronger for the Hellcat.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    I believe you will need to add about 15oz of lead in the tail for the hellcat to balance. They quote the Zenoah will weigh 41 oz compared to 19oz for the Saito 100. I will use the Saito 100 like I have used in all my Hanga 9 warbirds. No additional weight required. With the correct exhaust system, I get very little residue on my aircraft when finished flying.

    I will do my homework. Can't understand why I can't make a comment without hurting your feelings. Sorry I spoke on this forum. Just was making a true statement. I guess you are correct all the time. Good luck with your $330.00 Zenoah gas engine. Hope you have a powerfull battery for it's ignition system. It uses a lot of battery for the amount of time it's running. Let me know how it work's out for you.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    Personally I think CorsairJock has the right idea. A Saito 100 would be perfection. Pity is doesn't have a flap option. I like the F6F, prefer the F4U, but would like to own both someday. They'd look good stiiing on the grass together. Anybody know the scale of the F6F?

    I believe it would be about 1/7 scale.

    RE: H9-F6F Hellcat 60 ARF

    ORIGINAL: Shihtzutan
    .................... Anybody know the scale of the F6F?
    Homework: Full scale has wingspan of 42', 10", or 514". Divide by wingspan of H9 Hellcat (64.6 inches) and the verdict is: 7.9566, OR 1/8 scale for all practical purposes. Strange thing is: the CMP Hellcat has 70" span, yet it's fuselage is 1/8 scale (I have Bob Hollman 1/8 scale plans). Thus, the CMP wing is way out of proportion/ exaggerated span. Doesn't seem to bother all those guys who have the time to completely re-do/ re-build it tho.

    Why does Hangar 9 recommend a 1/7 scale pilot if is 1/8 scale?

    You would have to ask them, as I am in no way associated with them. While your at it, maybe contact Top Flite and ask them same question, regarding thier .60 size Corsair.
    Possibly it is because for some reason: 1/8 scale pilots are hard to find.

    It would seem that many times, some of us well informed modelers know more facts about their models than the manufacturers and distibutors do.

    If there are any doubts, do the math.

    I looked at the zenoah 20cc vs the thunder tiger 61 and I started to lean towards the TT61 with S-3110 futaba servos for ele rud and tail and a 6v 2000mah batt, but i still looking for some better equipment. any thouhts![sm=idea.gif].
