RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

My fish scale broke, but if I remember correctly it weighs about 9 3/4lbs. With the O.S. .61 and 12-6 prop it has plenty of power for big loops and other maneuvers. I was throttling back to about 75...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

For some entertainment in the thread I thought you all would enjoy my TF P-51 story. I bought my TF P-51 back in July of 1997 and did the first flight after 1 and 1/2 months of building, first flight...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

I flew my stock TF P-51 for 10 years using the wire joiner, so I guess that could be called long term.

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

I'm not familiar with that engine, but I think it has less HP than an O.S. .61FX, not really sure if I would want to do that but it's your call.





You're welcome and thanks, but as...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

OK, I'll tell the story of my first Gold Edition TF P-51. I got the kit at Rebel Hobbies in San Antonio on August 1997 and the first flight was on Sept 20, 1997. I built it completely stock just like...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

I have always taped the mounts out and they work great, not like the Chinese plastic mounts supplied in most arf's. You were destroying a good mount drilling them out like that! My first TF P-51 I...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

The problem with changing the mount and using a 90 deg retract is the limited wing thickness. Buy the 85 deg, much easier.

No,there is abig difference between the Gold and theRed Box version. Just for kicks here is a picture of my Red Box P-51 I converted to the D, this was WAY back in the early 80's, had a K&B .61 side...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

Good man Tim![sm=thumbup.gif] I was hoping you would say what you did. I personally like 1/8 scale, it's a nice size on the old WWII fighters. I can't wait for your site, to see what you are up too! ...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

What 3 view did you use as a reference to design and build the Mustangs or did you use a 3 view? I'll only pay $250 for a kit if it's very close to scale because just making a new cowl and changing...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

The servo's are not that far from the stock location, so I don't think it will matter to much. The P-51 has more than enough nose to compensate! I did not make the cockpit go all the way to the wing,...

Seems like I have always had a TF P-51! I'm still flying the one I built in 1997! I used to fly the old Red Box P-51 converted to the D and painted in Miss America markings, that was in 1984. Anyway,...

RE: Top Flite 1/7 P-51 Build

Yes, just use the standard direct hook with bent wire to the center section. I did this on my Royal P-51 and I'm using it on my new Top Flite P-51B. This mod is a great weight saver also.
