Mr. DJ,
Looking forward to pics of the DC-3.
I started to do some trimming to see if the bigger servo will fit. You know us modelers can make anything fit.[>:]
Since you think the Mini will be strong enough, I'm leaning that way now.

Best,

Jim

Hey Mr. DJ,

I'm feeling undecided about the elevator servo again.
This might be a wives tale, but someone once said the torque of the elevator servo (in ounces) should be 10 time the total weight of plane. Lets say our DO is 28 pounds. That would mean we need 280 ounces of torque between the two elevator halves. Our favorite HS 5645 at 6v would seem better than the mini.
How heavy was your jet that went 150mph and had the mini on the elevator?

Signed,

Wishy washy

does this ARF come with with mounted cannons or is it just the centerline guns ? Arethe exhaust stacks and the carb. seperate or are they glues on? I am looking at buying these items seperately to add to my remodel

I changed my previous post as I see that Evan got the achknowledgement prior. Wonder what this would cost to go electric.. That's the only way I'd buy this.. Other then to drool over it.

Ram-Bro,

Your bird is lookin' good, but didn't you tell me you sold that puppy? What up with that? Couldn't bear to let her go, I suppose

Mr. Dj,
Nice V35. How many big planes do you have? Your air force is larger than some countries.

Another DO question. I think you said you have the ESM retracts. Have you put the nose wheel in the front strut? The fork is way too big for the wheel. I must have a half inch on either side of the tire. Am I missing something?

Jim,

I have 11 large and 6 small; down from 20+ large and X amount small. I was getting the ESM retracts but I backed out; waiting on the Sierra version to arrive. I will be installing wheels with brakes - just like the turbines have. I don't know where I'm gonna put all the plumbing, for it is tight in there, we'll see.

Jim,

Did you know I have a Do thread also? I'm gonna drop out of Ty's unless I have a question for him. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10223951/tm.htm

As for the servos, I just cut the openings and you're correct, they don't fit without mods. I'm not doing any mods so for sure I will drop in the 5245s.

I red the specs of the Do-335 and after watched Mr Dj Video... It's hard to accept that this plane could fly with a 4S 1.20 + 4S .91 rear. Foil seems sooooo fat; fuselage soooo fat too.
Are we talkin about this plane, rigth?: http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/ESMDO335-83.html

Has anyone out there actually finished and flown the ESM DO-335 ARF ?
If so, please let us know how it flew. What did you use for engine or engines?
Thanks,
BCRC

Well I am finally Getting started on the interior of the Do335. This thing going by wing span is about 1/6.5 scale. The 1/6 scale German pilot will be a perfect fit.. I have made the first cuts to the fuse. there is plenty of room for a full cockpit for this one..I discussed something with Darrell when i was installing the nose gear. He pointed out there is nothing but fiberglass supporting the nose section of this plane. Anyone putting a large motor in the nose should consider reinforcing this area. I am going to recommend it if you decide to put a cockpit into the plane. It would be really easy to do.
You could either use carbon fiber glassed onto the insides or since the wiegh is not an issue I would just use 1/8" balsa that fit tightly between the bulkheads and glass/glued to the interior sides...

But think about the stress of a 50cc motor and landing gear all in the nose.... Maybe not an issue as we all tend to over build anyway....

Ty, i am refinishing my Al MAsters 335 and I am looking for some of the same parts ie cockpit, exhaust stacks, carb inlets. Think you could fabricate some of those?

I am planning on doing the cockpit and maybe the Cannons. The carb intakes probably not, not a real demand for them and they would be hard to reproduce. I am really swamped now days trying to get caught up before the 190D-9 and p-39 gets here next month....
