    RE: NEW Top Flight P-40??? 1/5 scale

    Any suggestions for a Scale looking 3 Bladed Red Spinner to replace the 2 Bladed Spinner that came with this Plane?

    I ordered mine from Dave Brown, and had them cut it for my 22/12/3 prop. Not as pricey as I would have thought. I then had a friend of mine paint it. He said he used some etching primer to help the paint stick.

    n8622t , I know you are running the DA 60 and the same prop set-up that I have, so would you by chance know what your needle settings are?

    RE: NEW Top Flight P-40??? 1/5 scale

    Got two more flights in yesterday. One was a dead stick landing and the next one had an air line pop off of the retracts. Decided to call it a day.

    Yes, I had leaned it out a bit too much. Landed pretty well, adjusted the needles and flew the second flight. Gear stayed down when I hit the switch. Brought it in and tore it down to find out that one of the quick disconnects to the wing had came loose, dumping all my air pressure when I tried to put the gear up. Luckily I had put the switch back in the down position and landed, so the gear stayed locked down for the landing. Still don't know what caused it, but I just decided to take a break and try it again another day. Maybe I just didn't get the fitting locked in good enough, nothing looked to be wrong with it and it locked back together when I plugged it back in ?????

    RE: NEW Top Flight P-40??? 1/5 scale

    When you twist those quick disconnects together, be sure you hear two simultaneous clicks...I have put those together before and they werent locked into place. You can always just replace the connector if you arent sure about it...may be the thing to do. I did a DA50 the same way....overleaned the low end and she just wouldnt run without fuel...cant understand that Sounds like you had some issues with no incidents....perfect.

    Hey Lomcevac how did she do on the dead stick?Ā*Ā*What kind of RPM's are you getting out of your set up?
    Went pretty well, I was pretty high when it quit and I had enough time to turn it around and make a half lap to final. Dropped gear at the last minute when I was sure I was going to make the field. I just kept the nose down and my speed up. I'm not sure yet what mine weighs but I need to check it.
    My tach battery was dead, so I don't know what it tachs yet. I am running the DA 60 and a 22/12/3 prop. I will try to get a new battery and let you know next time I fly it.

    Lomcevak,

    I had my gear stay down on the maiden flight last year. I was surprised they would not retract, Ihad done extensive leak testing.

    On removing the wing, I found I had a quick disconnect apart. My theory is that the retract servo knocked it apart. I rerouted
    the couplings to the other side and have not had it happen since.

    That is what happened on mine, and I have done the same thing. Hope that was the problem. Thanks!

    ORIGINAL: ROGER RUSSELL

    I took a tip from Sam Parrifit on here and used spray foam and put into my belly pan to stiffen up.

    He also did his wheel wells and carved out for his landing gear, I probably wont do that.

    I have to tell you it really stiffend up the belly pan with little weight.

    I can now pick the whole plane up with one hand on the BELLY and prop and no worries of denting in the pan.

    I drilled three holes in the pan (two in front and one in rear) for the foam to expand out.

    IT DOES GET MESSY, but worth it.

    To get the dried (8 hours later) foam off I used a sharp chisel.
    I would like to know a little more about this process. Is there a link?
