Default RE: TF P-40 Build Thread

Sounds like the first statements conflicts with the KISS principle but thats okay. I am building a Top Flite P-40 as well but I'm a little ahead of you. If you do what your talking about, you will end up with a heavy plane in 11 to 12 pound range which will require excelllent flying skills to manage. The only reason these planes require flaps is because everybody builds them into a flying brick. Be very careful about your weight. I'm shooting for 9 pounds with mine stripped down to the basics, maybe a little less, we will see.
Looks like a picture perfect wedding and I wish you all the best in the years ahead.
