    RE: ESM 82

    Old erikki,

    regarding venting hot air out, try creating baffles to help direct the flow of air.
    I'll get mine back out this week and see about mocking something up for you .
    I'll post some pics as soon as I can.
    Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

    RE: ESM 82

    Well I finally got to fly her. The conditions were not ideal much too gusty but, you can't wait forever for smooth air. The airplane was balanced as per the book,, but I found her to be tail heavy. It was really too rough to do anything much of anything. I never even got the gear up. She was rock steady. the landing was fast with no flaps. Looking forward to our first calm day.

    Paul

    RE: ESM 82

    I had to make a turning approach to avoid the sun & land my Hurricane on Monday...looked quite scale in the end as I know they use to have a low nose & banking approach on the real deal for vision over the nose.
    Short vid of the landing, my big wheels require a little more air pressure for the next run I think, I also added a little more weight to the nose & she was a lot more stable on the approach & flair (she was a little pitch sensitive before ).

    RE: ESM 82

    Hi Marc, I cant wipe the smile off my face every time I fly the Hurricane, I think the 200Ti has the perfect sound for a warbird, doesn't sound like a merlin maybe but has a distinct growl to it.
    I think I have posted these pic's before but may have been on a different thread, these are all I have at the moment as the Hurricane is stored at a mates place but it will give you an idea.
    The 200Ti is not fully cowled the front cylinder sticks out a fair bit however I stuffed up with the first install of the engine so the rear cylinder could be fully covered however it does help keep it cool.
    As far as the fuel tank goes I fitted a 750cc tank which required a little opening up of the formers BUT not alot & I would average about 8- 10 minutes in the air at the moment depending on throttle management but the 200ti has been supprisingly fuel efficient & I am landing with half a tank still left [X(].
    Look forward to seeing the progress on your build.
    Cheers Steffan.

    RE: ESM 82

    I used a set of Saito flexible exhaust's that I've shaped to exit at the bottom of the cowl secured to the fire wall, dont have any good pictures of it yet but will grab the Hurricane next Tuesday & take some of the set up.
    I had to add a lot of weight to the front to balance it due to the fact that I did a full cockpit build with a full bodied pilot so had to move the rudder & elevator Servos back into the rear of the fuse.
    If you weren't to do the cockpit I'd imagine it would balance with out much if any extra balast with the 200Ti.
    Will get back to you next week with more pics.
    Cheers Steff.

    RE: ESM 82

    Thankyou for those pics steff...looks a top job you have done there, unfortunatley i cannot afford that engine & so decided to go petrol.
    I would be paying £22.50 for a gallon of nitro...MT propower 16%.
    I'll miss that scale sound!.

    RE: ESM 82

    Hey, I was looking at getting this model since I see only good things on it. On the "Troy Built Models" website it states that a glow 1.60 engine should do the trick also. Now my question is, would my o.s 1.60 2 stroke glow engine be able to handle this airplane?

    RE: ESM 82

    Don't use a 1.6 OS. It does not have enought power for the overall weight of the model once balanced. If you want to stay with glow go for a Saito 1.8 FS. You would be adding additional weight and less dead weight to balance. The Saito is more than sufficient and it sounds great.

    RE: ESM 82

    dgiatr - Can you post some pics on your engine installation and with the cowl on. I plan to get this arf and will definately use a gas engine, probably the DLE 30 or the MVVS / EVO 35.

    Anyone else got gas engine installs, would love to read your posts.

    RE: ESM 82

    HI Kenair, unfortunately i lost my plane a month ago due to elevator pull-pull rope cut!!!!my mistake was that i used one rope NOT DOUBLE rope for each side of the pull-pull system!! i am building a new one right now but i am only in the beginnig ( i have just finished my cmpro p-40!! 73' span ). i will use the same engine dle 30cc because i think that its suitable for this plane. i dont think its overkill because its a big plane with a huge thick airfoil! but i must say that you have to cut much of the cowl if you use dle 30 custom exhuast. for that purpose i got a pits muffler from sds hobby (pits muffler for 26-30cc gas engine ) and now i hope i will cut less. yuo can also get bisson pits muffler for zenoah engines ( it fits to dle 30cc) and you can also look at this on you tube << esm hawker hurricane 82'' by locksmithvideoscholl.com >> watch the cowl cut..nice job!

    Hi, sorry to hear about your Hurricane, thanks for the video link and the tip in the pitts muffler. I think the DLE 30 is probably my choice.

    cheers - ken

    RE: ESM 82

    Hi Kenair!, i have just finished and maiden my second hurricane and everything its ok! i have to say that i didnt used the pits muffler that i told you before because i had to cut much of the cowling that way, i used dle 30cc stock-custom muffler instead! which is the most compact muffler with less cowling cut!! for that engine. i balanced my plane at 11 cm (quite nose heavy i know!!) but it flies fantastc that way and i thinking of not changing it.
