    I agree with acdii, if it fits give it a shot. This airframe will fly with a wide variety of power plants... I would guess your FG-36 is pushing the upper end of the spectrum! :eek: I too, made a...

    I have a Syssa 30cc in mine. The engine and necessary running gear is about 42 ounces. The fuselage structure is built according to plans (didn't move the fire wall but I did reinforce it...), with a...

    earlwb, Cool twin... Do you know what the weight of your mustang is? I have a C-47 with twin OS .40s on it and am hoping they'll have the power to fly her @ 13lbs. :confused:

    j301,

    With a little care, I think that the fuse could be cut and the conversion could be done without getting into the lower color of monokote. I stripped this one down because I wanted to change...

    j301,

    Converting the ARF wasn't bad, just broke out the razor saw and made room for the new formers and cockpit. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the process :( I stripped the Monokote...

    I'm with raptureboy on the reinforcing of the landing gear mounts. I think we both learned the hard way. Do it when you are assembling your bird, you won't be sorry.

    j301,

    Thanks! I love the looks of the P51B. I bashed the fuse with the Top Flite P51B model conversion kit and it turned out real good. Yes, I have considered the Valley View 20cc looks like a...

    j301,

    She's in the re-building and modification phase... So no power plant right now. I put a JBA 15cc gasser in it and had some "difficulties" :( thus the re-construction. I can't decide which...

    I had the Saito 100 in one for a while. Flew very nicely, plenty of thrust but not a lot of top end speed. I really like the S3010 plenty of torque for the 60 size warbirds.

    I generally fly my new models right away too... The flying season came to an end before I had my C-47 dialed in where I thought it should be. I started a new project over the winter and never put my...

    A couple of quotes that strike me are:

    "If you're not ready to crash it you're not ready to fly it".
    "If it doesn't fly, it deserves to crash".

    Good point acdii. I crashed my first P-51 due to a tip stall on my landing approach. I expected it to float more than it did! :o

    Hi John, welcome to RCU. I have flown a T/F ARF 60 but am not familiar with the H9 P-51. I can't give you a comparison between the two but I can say that the T/F is a great flying airplane.

    Steve, I would agree that a hatch mount servo would be the best solution. I was going to go with dual aileron servos on my build, however I stuck with the original plan. The single servo with the...

    Ralph, I see what you mean. After looking closer at the B configuration, he fits in there rather nicely! Thanks! Sounds like you got shorted a pilot figure with your plane:(

    Hi Ralph, thanks! The pilot is the bust that came with the Top Flite ARF. He looks pretty good in there, but some of the Mustang guys think he's a little too big... I'll probably use him, but will...
