Boltman, great planes you have there!

RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

Tfarmer, I know that you have used the DA85 on other TF GS planes of the same size, such as the P-47. How many flights do you typically have on them with this engine?

RE: ESM FW D-9

Thanks, Ram.

I seem to be getting into trouble with the wheels hitting the inside of the leading edge beam. You probably have a slightly different angle on the mounting of the retracts. I...

RE: DLE55 & 3-Blade Prop

I have run several DLE55's with a 3-blade Mejzlik 21X12 and that works great provided you are using a canister for exhaust. This is what I use on my Composite ARF Yak55SP 2.1m with a DLE55. However,...

As for the Dora, I willshorten the...
