    Agree on making the P-51s and other warbirds a tad bit nose heavy. The saying goes: Nose heavy, they may land a little faster - Tail heavy, they crash

    We are flying the TF 1/5 P-51s at our club (Mattoon IL). What we have learned is if your landing approach is not just the way you want it GO AROUND and try again. Once you start making...

    grbaker,

    No, I did not use the WWII Zoar prop. The Zoar props I have are the PJA Series Beechwood Props. The Zoar 22 x 10 flew the P-51 okay. The Zoar 21 x 10 flew it better, faster and on a...

    Roger,
    No, I did not use the soft isolation mount with my DLE 55RA on my TF P-51. I used the standoffs that came with the DLE 55RA. I used 1/4" aircraft ply to get the correct distance for the...

    Chris,

    Maybe our luck will change. In the club I belong to we have had four motors quit or did not have enough power to operate the gear. They all were properly installed, maintained and not...

    Chris,

    Yeah, Down and Locked charged me $50.00 to install their new holding blocks plus shipping of $18.00. I agree either fix is a lot better than the stock setup. The motor problem is a bigger...

    It's amazing that Robart has not fixed the problem with the holding blocks twisting causing the linkage barrel (part that the jackscrew threads thru) to pop out of the holding blocks. I had the same...
