    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    Good Work Col! Glad you got down safely. Had mine out Sat for it's first run ups and electrical checks. Also cycled the gear amny times and check for air leaks. Lost 1 lb in 45 minutes, I think that will work. Next week end will hopefully be it's first flight, weather being so good here in Arizona this time of the year.

    Ibelieve firewall diameter (the flat area is 113 mm or 4.454 inches. I used Evolution 26 engines with their radial mount and had plenty of flat area.

    Tom - Where do you fly in Arizona?

    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    I was trying to let him see some light at the end of that tunnel, Richard!!!
    I, too, am interested to hear which color schem he is going with. I wish white was available when I did mine - or at least no decals. I'd rather do that stuff my way and in my own colors like we did on my KMP B-25. She sure doesn't look like every other "Maiden" that came from the factory!
    I'm also glad to hear he's going with the Fuji 24's. The ones on my B-25 run flawlessly, although it has no where NEAR the speed and power that the YS's do.

    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    I ordered mine with the color overall blue without any markings. That way I can paint it into the full size F7F I was the crew chief on in the late 80's

    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    I have 12 flights on my F7F with a pair of G-20 engines and I like the way the Tigercat handles. The issue of the retract system was my only complaint with the ARF, the gear was too light for the weight of the plane. I replaced the gear with Precision and now have the gear looking and retracting like the full size Bossman. My Tigercat hit the scales at 28 1/2 pounds. The elevation here is 4466 feet and I have all the power I need and the plane was clocked at 105.3 MPH flat out across the field. I have had three right engine out landings and the plane came in like I had both engines running. I have also had a mid-air with two small black birds and now have two bird kills. The only damage was to the left outer leading edge just past the prop arc. A little epoxy and some lite fiberglass and the plane is almost as good as new. (I got touch paint from KMP) Anyhow it's a good flying plane.

    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    That's gonna be a great scheme Warbird.
    FYI... Home Depot sells acrylic paints in that APPLE GREEN that is on your cowlings. They have it in pints and it sprays nicely.
    You will LOVE those Fuji 24's!!!
    Good luck - keep us posted on your progress and just ask if you have questions - we've been there!

    BTW - Just got the new issue of Flying Models. The T-cat made the cover. Anyone know if that was someone on this thread??? It is electric.

    RE: KMP F-7F Tigercat

    Hi

    Managed to get complete F7F kit and retracts at a bargain. After reading most of the 50 page post could not stumble onto anyone using electric setup on this model. I did skim through some of the pages and might have missed. As mine seems to be new kit, nomex wings and new retracts hopfully most of the problems encounterd (paint blsiters etc) would not occur. I need some info on electric motors used, so if any of you out there have done or know of spot on sight where recomended motors for this kit are discussed, please give me some pointers. Must say as ARF goes the out of box quality appears stunning.

    Regards
    Burt

    The latest issue of FLYING MODELS has our bird on the cover - Done as an ELECTRIC!!!
    Hope you can find a copy. If I can get mine back I will try to see if they had the details about it.
    We Yanks like noise too much to electrify these for the most part, but theres always someone that has to burn electrons.....
