Hi Dave

The 4in just fit in the wing, a bigger wheel you will have to cut away the wing spar to make it fit

Ok thanks.

i drew up a scale hub to replace the William bros 3.5Ē wheels that came with my landing gear, but I have just ordered some flexible fillament to try printing my own wheels. Guys in Germany are actually using 3D printed wheels and hubs on a 1:3 scale turbine powered BAe Hawk with great success, so Iím going to have a crack at it myself. This Williams bros wheels will be my fall back if I can win with the flexibale filament.

Got the BF 109 to the field today on it's forth visit and it finally got maiden'ed, after some minor trimming it flew well, inverted it and it is just a little nose heavy, an easy fix, came in with full flaps and it landed very gently on the mains, then the tail came down, very happy with it, will get a couple of more flight days in then it will go to the paint hanger, no spinner fitted cut yet as not sure which prop I will end up with

All ready to go

New canopy and pilot


Canopy much more scale looking than the CMP one
No more flights yet with the 109 as just to windy, I have taken a mold of the spinner and and then taken a fg one from the mold, the weight is about 1/3 of the original

Mike

mold taken from the original spinner


New fg spinner and the original, one third of the weight

The wind calmed down for a day and I managed to get two flights in, the C of G is good after moving it back a little after the maiden, beginning to feel comfortable flying it

Mike

full flaps for landing

Thanks, one more flight day and then I will paint detail it
The C of G is about 115mm now, the canopy is from parkflyer plastics, took a gamble as it is not shown as a CMP replacement, but it show's dimensions which seemed to be similar, it's the same length but sits lower on the fuselage which is how it should be, yes have the mold for the spinner but will not be making a back plate, have you made any progress with your build

Got a couple of more flights with the 109, fitted a more scale looking prop and cut the spinner for the 3 blade prop, next I will get some paint on it and detail

Is that your new canopy fitted to the model? because It looks like its tinted in the pics?

I keep forgetting that you went electric with this one. I am still looking around for a 25-30cc motor for the 109, haven't decided on anything yet.

Hi Dave

Yes that's the old yellow one that came with the kit, the new one will go on after the paint job, I will leave it to last as I hate painting canopy's

Got the frames installed in the canopy and made up the wheel covers and a mast, finished off the panel lines and mild weathering, now all I have to do is enjoy flying it

Are they standard length legs? It looks really really good on its feet!!! hard to believe itís the same kit!

Im trying to get some Ali to machine a new backplate for the spinner, will have to get a hold of you then and talk about spinner cone.
