    Thanks, F82Fan, and I hope its just a temporary lapse in judgement on their part, I've been collecting pieces for the 190 for a while!

    Well finally flew this weapon! 9.7 kg with a saito fg 33 up front. 899 g of lead in the nose...cog set at 139mm. It flew like it was on rails!! Great landing at half flaps..only problem was runway was boggy this time of year and she dug in a bit and ripped up a few divots. All in all a great plane.

    Hi Miketahin

    Congrats for the maiden!

    are you sure about the weigt of the model? 9,7kg is about 20lbs..even if you have the composite wing version this seems to be a bit much?

    Another thing: why on earth do you need lead on the nose with FG33? Did you mount servos in tail or something?

    Anyways if it flies well: that's what counts!

    I had one that I bashed with lots of scale details plus a full cockpit and pilot. It weighed in at 19.5 lbs. Once airborn it flew pretty well but landing was a bear. I had the CG forward at 135mm but when slow it was real pitchy and sensitive. Real white knuckler coming in on approach.
    Flying:
    P-40E 80"
    Bendix Special
    MilPoke - Self designed Frankenplane

    Building: ESM FW-190 D9 Bash
    I wanna list: Fliteskin TA-152C, Holman D9

    Yep aero Finn she needed every little bit of the 850 g in the nose! ...unfortunately, but, It flew well. But I mounted two lipos under the gun hood and the r33 does weight less than a dle 33. They are a heavy girl. I may be able to lower the nose weight as I get more familiar with the plane so I might b able to bring it back but...that's where it seems to b happy. Does any one else have a story on the weight? I reckon I'm in the mark...the cog seemed perfect at 135 dowmer, it's where most people on this forum had theirs set. I didn't add anything crazy to the plane, it just seemed to b where the weight ended up.
