You'd be mad if you didn't

Dave do you think mas made a mistake moving away from white painted tips? lot of people i know bought them for that reason, they look pretty in flight and nearly indistructable.

Lonnie i've seen a 60 size h9 mustang flown with a 200 ti it sounded awesome. There's someone here struggling to get off the water with high pitch props, do you agree that most 6 pitch props fly most ga planes at scale speed at half throttle to 3/4 ?

I am seriously considering painting them white, I'll certainly share if I do.

Yeah, love to have a 200ti in a Spit like that vid Jim has posted here a couple of times. Woohoo, hold on to your hat!

Yes, I'd say most scale models of civilian aircraft will fly at scale speed with a 6 pitch prop, as long as the diameter of the prop is large enough to overcome airframe drag and the engine has the nuggets to spin it fast enough.

Whoops, had to reboot the internet.

With WWll warbirds it can be tough to achieve scale speeds, especially when talking about Reno racing speeds. Installing larger than recommended 4 stroke engines and using 8 to 10 pitch props is the norm. Same with drag queens like the P-47, lots of power required.

Dave, once I get my fa180/ 60 size P-47 propped correctly I'm going to dye the apc prop black and add white tips. Are you thinking of using laquer paint for the prop tips?

Ok thanks. Looks like that product is Acrylic Laquer, should be resistant to nitro.

You're correct and I didn't know that little detail.

Since it was hotter than a firecracker today I decide to stay inside. I decided I had enough filling and sanding so I started covering the bottom of wing of Capt. P's new ride and Pinky Saito's new home.

So there I was sitting in my beanbag chair eating Cheetos nak....er... wrong story! Get your mind out of the gutter!

I got the top of the wing covered now. I still have a few wrinkles to shrink out but I like to do that later before I apply the decals.. I hope to start covering on the fuselage tomorrow if I can get the throttle finished and the tank plumbed. Manual says you need 2 rolls of covering but I can tell you that it is going to be tight.

Man that pink is bright!.

OK I had a thought, Gary when you painted this Saito did you clear the nipple on the backplate or do I need to pull it so the excess oil will leak out? Also what kind of paint did you use in case I need to touch it up? Thanks!

The next time I see that gent I want to find out what's in the violin case that requires two cooling fans. He flies with that beautiful prop.

I should say I covered the vent. It should be clear thatís how I oil the engineís for storage is through that hole.

Nothing better than lubing through a nipple.

Thank you but that is a Pete N Poke wing not an Astro Hog wing. I received the airplane partially built without the plans but from what I have been able to download in the manual/plans area there is no washout called for. I have been debating one thing so please feel free to chime in. The static struts are non load bearing and just kind of float in slots at both ends. I think the airplane looks better with them so I will keep them. My quandary is should I paint them pink to match the main struts or cover them in red Monokote to match the border going on the tail feathers and some of the decals? What do you think?

Nice looking airplane but it would look even better with a Saito in it! I'm thinking about making the elevator red/white checkerboard if I have enough it will help the pink go farther.
