    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Hi Guys.
    My local Hobby Shop has one of these in stock that he says he has had for awhile. He can get me out the door tax and all for $550. This sounds like an amazing deal but my question is whether there have been more versions of this kit. Am I about to buy and older version with problems or have they all been the same?
    Thanks!
    Dom

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Hi Dom,

    Not aware of any changes. I purchased the ARC version and it is a stunning plane to fly. They are well built, manoeuvrable and flies straight and true.

    Cheers

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Thanks for the reply.

    I picked her up today along with all the needed accessories. The only problem is that the covering is badly wrinkled. I have spent nearly 3 hours on one wing panel and still cant get the wrinkles out. I think the problem is that the structure is fully sheeted. I am feeling the need to strip it and either glass and paint it or cover it with a fabric type covering that will breathe a bit over the sheeted structure. This sucks!

    Mines Glassed - I added on the Razor back F/G kit from Terry at Wylie Warbirds. (trying to upload a pic but RCU is being RCU!)

    Can you iron out or use a heat gun on the covering?

    When i created the prototype for the razorback conversion i pulled all the cover off because the arc wasnt out yet. If you do dont try to remove the hinges it will destroy the wing.

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Maj. are you using a heat gun? If so try using a cloth to rub down the monokote right after its stopped ballooning. This helps adhere the covering to the wood better. I dont think the wing is "air tight" even though its fully sheeted. But if thats really a concern then add a few breather holes in the trailing edges.

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Well I decided to strip the covering and glass this baby! I already have the wing glassed and will start the fuse soon. I might as well go all out with panel lines and such.

    But anyway I have a question.

    I bough the Jtech Pitts muffler for this plane. It is model # JTC-DL50WP.

    I also bought the new Corsair ARF and the recommended muffler for that is a Jtech Model # JTC-DA50WPTF.

    The JTC-DA50WPTF specifically states that it is for the P-47 Giant (and Corsair). The two mufflers are different in that the can on the JTC-DL50WP is much larger in diameter and has shorter exhaust pipes than the JTC-DA50WPTF.

    Will the JTC-DL50WP fit in the P-47 or do I need to exchange it for the JTC-DA50WPTF? I am guessing that the smaller diameter can of the JTC-DA50WPTF gives more clearance from the firewall.

    Thanks!

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Hi Dom,

    I used the slimline Pitts Muffler supplied by DA Australia. I had to cut the bottom corner of the firewall off and reinforced it from inside the box with some 3mm ply laminated with carbon. I have had a look for a photo but I didn't take one when the cowl was off. I also cut my pipes so they are just inside the cowl, make a great muffled sound but still pushes the exhaust out.

    As you are glassing I would recommend making a hatch on the top of the fuse. Talk to Terry Farmer as he can supply the bits. Mine was ARC so I turned it into a razorback.

    Oh and I had to add a screw to the hatch as the magnets were not strong enough to hold it down in flight

    Also as you will need to shove as much stuff as you can up in the nose move the fuel tank back a bit, up in the nose area where the tank went I managed to shove in 3 x A123 packs, Throttle and Choke servos and a robart retract valve with servo and I still need to add about 500grams of lead shot to the inside of the cowl in the lip at the very front.

    RE: Top Flite Giant P47 arf IS coming

    Well after sorting out some glitch problems (opti Kill switch) and dealing with a few air retract bugs, I finally maidened her today and man was it sweet! Great flying plane, DLE 55 is still tight and probably ready to be leaned out a bit. The 21X10 prop wasn't exactly a screamer either. I think I'll pick up a 22X8 Prop or try a 23X10 I have ready to go. Also need to mix in a bit of down for flaps.VERY smooth flyer and slows down to ludicrous speed on landing.
    Time flies like a brick thru the window of life.

    Sounded like two motors to me. One on the ground and the one in the plane, which didn't sound like a DLE55 to me.
