TopRCModel FW-190

After about a six month wait just received word that my TopRCModel FW-190 has finally shipped.
93" wingspan and I'm installing an EME 70 twin with autostart.

Very nice. EME motors are especially nice with the electric auto start attached.
Another nice option would be an FG90r3, although that's twice the cost.

Wingspar,

I have one on order also from VQ warbirds but haven't heard a thing yet about it being shipped to me; just that they got their container in on Wednesday and they were processing it all.
I have a Zenoah GT-80 with electronic ignition slated to go into mine.

wingspar 01-26-2018 12:41 PM

That should be a great combination!

Post pics when you get it; very curious what this bird looks like.
Websites say that it has been flown but I haven't seen anything on youtube for videos of it after searching the last week.

wingspar 01-29-2018 07:40 AM

Due to arrive this Wednesday between 5 and 8 pm

Still waiting on notification on mine to ship.

I'm probably one of the first to get it due to my whining,complaining and sniveling to Mike at Gater RC about getting this aircraft since I heard about it nine month ago.;)

maddog-RCU 01-30-2018 10:03 AM

LOL whatever works to get you the plane.
I ordered mine from VQwarbirds.

maddog-RCU 02-01-2018 05:46 AM

Did the fedex man make a delivery?

They did. Arrived a little late so I just unpacked it.

First impression is that it's boxed up very well. I think you could drop this box from twenty feet up and not damage it's contents at all. Kick it around the warehouse? No problem.

Fuselage is very well made. Often the fuselage between the wing and tail is weak and has to be handled with care or reinforced. Not this one! It's not put together with some sort of hot glue like so many other are.
This model is light years ahead of the top flite FW-190.

Some quick pics i took last night......

maddog-RCU 02-01-2018 07:32 AM

WOW I am impressed; now I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for mine.
May have to rattle VQ Warbirds cage to find out where mine is.

Thanks for the pictures; post more if you like; nice eye candy.

The gear, spinner and prop were shipped later and should arrive in the next few days.

Dave N

Katniss 02-01-2018 03:51 PM

Please take pictures of the gear. It's Robart correct?
I hope they learned their lesson from the poor design they made for the Top Flite 190.

wingspar 02-01-2018 04:03 PM

No, they are not Robart. I've got the units from TopRCModels.

OK good . Caimandist.com list two options for this plane.
They have a Robart set for $789
https://caimandist.com/collections/l...-manufacturing
and a toprc original air set for $699.
https://caimandist.com/collections/l...odel-93-fw-190

I hope they're different as the website url indicates a copy.

which 3 blade

What prop are you getting?

tmaucher 02-01-2018 05:17 PM

Be nice if someone made a realistic fw190 3 blade with the big paddles. I think the sound would be worth maybe the performance loss.

tmaucher 02-01-2018 05:27 PM

I didn't preorder this one because I actually heard of this one 16 months ago at WOTR and evidently there where some delays. Probably wont be able to get one till next container, so I'll be watching closely. Does it have or can it be modified to have a sliding canopy?

It's the adjustable pitch three blade prop from Toprcmodels. 22" diameter.

Could be modified for a sliding canopy without to much trouble.

Wingspar,
Mine arrived last night; never got notice it was shipped, a nice surprise and a day after my birthday.
I am really impressed with the quality of this plane; very, very, detailed and light weight; this baby will be a speedster with GT-80 I am mounting in it.
Looking at getting a solo prop for it also; a bit on the expensive side though but very scale like.
Now to get the gear ordered.
Catch you later

wingspar 02-02-2018 05:10 AM

Glad you got yours! Post your progress here too if you wish.

Note that the slots for the horns in the rudder are not marked or cut out. Neither is a slot in the fuselage for the rudder control wire.
Not a big deal but a little extra work required.
