Nice! I am ready to get it airworthy! I know what you mean by the Right rudder!! My P-51 with a SA-125 is a torque monster on takeoff! I apply power slowly and add right rudder as i go.. it takes getting used to. Right now I am repairing/modding an Aeroworks Katana. The previous owner deadsticked it and ripped the gear off. Its a clean break and I am almost done with the repair. Then the Stuka goes on the table!

Anyone have an idea of the vintage of this Ju-87 model?

Hi guys sorry to say I have not touched the plane for nearly 3 months now and I'm really ashamed of myself.The mind is willing but the body is not.I promise I will start back on it by the weekend.Please keep asking.

These things take time. If we were in a hurry we'd be only messing with ARF's!

Hello,

I just found this thread and I agree about the Stuka tip stalling if it goes to slow. This is from experience. I crashed my Royal Stuka because of it, and just got through rebuilding it.

I have five flights onthe Stuka and it flys great. I had someone that is an expert flyer take it up to ensure all was stable and trimmed out. need to approach landing at a a pretty good speed until you are just about ready to touch ground and then let off. We ran at full throttle with an OS 91 four stroke and performed well.

Wedid the Stuka dive and dropped bombs from the wings and well as some loops and rolls (scared me when the guy did this too).

Here are the latest pictures after completed repairs.

trick to those slow landings is make your final turn with 1/4 throttle and when 12 feet from ground cut it back to idle and let her sink on in. I fly my cap 232 and at-6 like this and never have problems.

anyone know where I can get a cockpit interior for the royal .60 size corsair?
I wouldn't mind Luke contacting me, but I'm rather sure he would prefer to not be bothered.
My plan is to build a .60 size royal corsair from scratch, finish it in a similar fashion as dionysusbacchus had done,
but incorporate a funxtioning folding wing.
I have found instructions on how to do this and a company that produces an electronic mechanism for cheap
which will also cause the wing to stagger simulating actual hydraulics.
The *rick's in my club won't believe there eyes. I hope to afford a rcv-60 or 90.

Luke if you see this I hope one day you will be willing to entertain us with your colorful and detailed threads!

might be worth it to watch the forums over the next few days as someone just won a .60 sized royal corsair minus cowl in box on the bay for about $186

Were those bombs on the Stuka built to drop?

Hi I-fly-any-and-all,

I bought the plans recently on the internet. Plans are OK (Two pieces), the templates for the parts is just blown up from very small plan and not accurate. I think I should derive the parts form the plans themselves. Is this the same with your plans or are the templates for the parts (ribs etc..) OK?

In case, where did you get them?

Regards,

Freek

Hi I-fly-any-and-all,

Been back on the build for the past couple weeks now, just about to start spraying the colour to the fuselage before I sheet it and fibreglass so I can cut windows out.Wing is nearly complete apart from just trying to see if I can fit 3 1/2" wheels instead of 3 1/4" before I start glueing the added strengthening needed for the retracts.My friend is testing a 4 stroke engine for me before I buy the other 3 to see if we can run it upside down, so I dont have to cut too much out of the cowels.I will put up some more pic's as soon as I see more improvement.

Lippo,
I've been running Saito FA56's and FA62's as well as OS FS70's and FA90's inverted for years with no difference in performance or reliability than if they were mounted cylinder up. Magnums or ASPs have been reported to be the same with regard to inverted reliability. If you look back at some of my P-51 pics you'll see that I'm trusting this past experience with inverted mounting on the FA100 in that bird as well. Go for it with confidence.

Cheers

true frets! I've got a u-can-do 3d .60 size that I even run a o.s. 1.20 fs inverted on and another plane that it has an o.s. .61 fs mounted upright both run practiacally the same the inverted engine does tend IMO to run better,the trick is to have the carb at the proper level with the tank.

One thing's for sure...The topend (when inverted)doesn't lack for any lube!!! Anytime I pull the rocker covers off they're FULL of oil Definitly a good thing.
