Default first flight P51 Mustang Ziroli

Hello to all from France.

Here is the link to the video of my first flight of 51 P : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyXRQzON8S0


80XI motor 3 W, the landing gear from Robarts, with séquenseurs Ultra Precision UP2 weight 16kg (35 pounds)

Excellent flight, no problem at all, it Ziroli.

Here is the link for the construction of the Dauntless, from Ziroli of course !!
Excuse me, it's in French, but you will see the photographs : http://forum.modelisme.com/viewtopic.php?id=170218&p=1.

With the hope that it will please you.

Bye
Fred.

Sorry for my english !!

Hello Scott,

Thank you for the compliments, the exhaust comes from Aircraft International (Supersonic Pitts Style bolt on mufflers) for 3W 80XI.

Props from Menz 28x10 , but i change for Biela 27X10 , less noisy .

Nice video and great flight. Looked like a bad cross-wind on landing. Nice job bringing it in.

Great video! I couldn't tell if it was a model or the real thing. You did a great job on it!

Well Fred, nice bird and nice flying


Now: the idea to change to a smaller prop is bad - your propeller right now is on its limit. Either you get a bigger prop or you step up in pitch - I would prefer a larger pitch

Are you sure you spin a 28x10 and not a 26x10??

happy landings

Sorry G-Pète:
now is 27x10 Biéla carbonne : more havy than the wwood
before the 28x10 Menz 6200 t/mn
Now with 27x10 Bièla 5900-6000 t/ mn sorr in inglish RPM.

I loose rpm but it is less noisy it is much better (the nex village is not fare )

Change the Prop ? If it was me I would not change a thing. The Plane looks like it flys awsome with great power, best looking Ziroli Mustang I have seen fly. Great work. Kevin.

Now you try to confuse me again

You telling me with a smaller propeller you get less RPM? I'm sure the former prop was an 26x10...

Happy landings

Fred,
That's a terrific Mustang you have there...it flys beautifully. I have a question for you. I am visiting Paris for 10 days this spring with my wife (our 20th anniversary). I'd like to visit one really good hobby shop, and perhaps go to a flying field if it is convenient. My primary interest is giant warbirds (I'm currently building a Ziroli Corsair). Do you have any suggestions on how I might find a French hobby shop, and/or a flying field? Also, do you know of any good military aviation museums around Paris?

Frederick, great looking P-51 and just awesome and majestic flying. For a 35 lb. plane it really moves, you sure have it powered right!

Thank you all for your compliments, but I say: thank you Nick Ziroli.

RCdude13

Sorry, but in Paris there are no department stores specializing in this discipline !

In France, the best shops is the web !!

I fly 50km North of Paris, but if you want a very good meeting is in June, here is the link http://www.imaa-europe.com/imc_2009.html (50km Sud of Paris)

For the museum to go to the museum Le Bourget, between Roissy CDG and Paris. This is an excellent site .Here is the link: http://www.mae.org/

Upon your arrival in Paris, they could organize an afternoon on our flying field, why not ?

Congratulations on your birthday and I hope that Paris will be a great happiness to your wife and yourself.

My English is very bad, that's why I use Google Translation.

Best regards
Fred

My wife , my planes , the fied and my.

Looks like another GREAT flying Ziroli bird. You will get many wonderful flights out of that docile 51. I would prob. keep the diamter but step up in pitch as previously suggested.
