    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    Just an FYI , Ty also makes great kits of your interested in building , he has the fiberglass fuse and other great parts but the scale is larger then the CMP .
    Many of his designs are flown by him and in eletric so he has the video .

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    Thanks LDM! yes I spoke with Ty on his plane will be looking at that this year. I have currently taken apart the CMP wing and am drawing up a center section made of laser cut ply parts that put the landing gear mounts into the correct position . As well I will be cutting some foam outer wing panels. I realize fully that the CMP is a great buy but it bothers me that they could not go that extra bit to make the landing gear positioning correct. Maybe those distributors here in North America can converse with them so that subsequent versions are more realistic. Tero T

    Hi 21onen I just got one of these bieds and feel the same as you about the wing .I'd be interested in buying a set of drawings and ribs you cut to make a new center section. So please send me a pm and we can chat.

    Thanks

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    Hi Joe!
    Actually I hope to get to this completed this month. I hope . Just started a new position and have to travel to Montreal starting this week . This might be something Ty Brown could entertain as he already has a similar set up with his 80-81 inch setup . I followed his method of the landing gear plates. I would like to help out anyway I can but this new position is going to eat up a lot of my spare time. If Ty could reduce the scale for his existing design to fit the CMP 109 then this would be an excellent source for spare wing kits . People would purchase this as a primary wing if is resolves the landing placement issue. If Ty is reading this maybe he can offer this option/and or opinion. Lets see how this month progresses. Will be in touch. Regards Tero T

    so from 12.5 to 14.5 lbs.. so a DLE20 should be a good match.. thanks much.

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    For a gas or glow motor...12.5 to 14.5 pounds sure.
    Although mine have been 16 pounds using electric(10s setup)...but this size plane could easily be flown on an 8s

    In the world of electric power

    In a nut shell.

    "s" refers to the cell count on the battery pack. For example a 3s (11.1volts each) 2pack is a six cell power source
    "c" rating is the rate of discharge in amps, makes a massive difference in performance I noticed. When its a true rating and not B.S.

    The other info on batteries are the same, V, Ma.

    Hi P40-k!
    Just to let you know that AKM models does ship to Canada. Nitro would not. The CMP is close to the size limits and is possibly why others are unwilling to ship . If I recall correctly it was a about $60 to ship to TO. Alex at AKM was super. Tero T

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    AK-Models is the one to use for shipping to Canada. I purchased the CMP giant scale Zero from them, it only cost $67.00 to ship to Keswick (north of Toronto) and the box was way bigger than the 109 box. Alex ships to Canada by USPS so that you won't get hit with brokerage fees like you would with FEDEX or UPS.

    OK let me check . Could be it was more. At my age everthing is shrinking . I know it is expensive for larger items. When I purchased the last OV-10 from Kondor (KMP)I had it shipped to a friend in Toledo and picked it up in April when the Toledo model show was on. Tero T

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    HI P-40K-5, there are little business's that you can get stuff shipped too just across the boarder. Drive across and pick it up. Near Kelowna we have http://bettasservices.com/Page_1.html .
    I haven't used it yet but many guy's from work have and saved them tons of cash. I'm sure there is someone doing the same business near you do a search and see. Happy hunting .

    Thanks
    Joe

    RE: CMP BF109F BUILDING THREAD

    standard servos are fine. JR821's, HS 645s, etc. I run each elevator half off their own servo. If you run both halves off one, then something with more torque would be needed.

    For the record and future reference, my finished plane came in 14 lbs dry. The engine is an OS200, it has a cockpit kit from Ty's planes complete with pilot, onboard glow, E-Flite 120 sized retracts, , 3 6V 2000mah NiMH packs, and one of Ty's aluminum spinners.

    What starter and nose cone adapter is everyone using to start their engines? I've realized that the standard nose cone that I have can't even come close to gripping this huge spinner. [X(]
