Ok Guys finally finished up the P-39 Cockpit. It will be a good start for someone and look even better with someone who can do a better job of painting. I should have the cockpit to VQ warbirds at the first of next week. You can fit a 1/6 scale pilot in the seat. i'll try to get pics with at pilot in place soon.. You can still use the rear part of the servo tray.

Ty,

Looks great! Tomas is ready to send me mine as soon as you get it to him

I haven't started on the plane yet as I haven't finished my P-47 yet. Just started painting it now so it should be done soon and I will have an open workbench for the P-39.

Manfred,

Great photos! Thanks for sharing! I always liked the idea of using a door to get in/out. Not sure if that made it easier to bail out though, but sure was easier getting in the seat.

Mine is all completed and electric. Tried to get a flight this weekend, but had some problems with the receiver. I didn't figure out the problem until I got home that night. It turns out that one of the satelite receivers was not fully seated and the receiver wouldn't work. Maybe next wekeend?


Here's a nice shot from the field

You don't have to cut a hatch. The nose wheel opening is large enough that you can put the batteries from there... My buddy that did the T-28 puts his batteries through the nose wheel opening very easily.

Yes the batteries do fit in through the nose wheel. It's a tight fit, but works fine.

The setup is:

motor: Efltie Power 160
Battery: 2x 6s 5800 mah packs in series
ESC: Castle 110 HV
Prop: APC 20-10

Here's a photo of the battery compartment. It fits nicely behind the firewall. I did have to add about 10 oz. of weight in the tail section to get the CG right.

Don't have one with the batteris, but thy fill up the whole compartment in the photo where you see the velcro. That box is just the right size for the two packs.

Here's one showing the motor setup. Pretty straight foward on that one. If you don't use the cockpit kit, then you coulld move the packs back a little and eliminate the need for weight in the tail.

I was planning on using the eflite 160. I have a castle 100 speed controller. I noticed you used a 110. Is my 100 going to be too small?

You need an CASTLE HV speed control. An 85 amp castle will handle the 160 without any problems. Using a 20x10 prop. I pull about 65 amp full throttle...

Jmohn,

May I ask what motor mount you're using with the 160?

Thanks

Thanks Ty!

I've been using the aluminum stand offs, but they come in only three lengths, so they don't always get me there

I think it's the Hanger 9 motor mount. The MPI also works fine. Hoping to sneak away next week and fly it. I am busy Memorial weekend doing other things so won't be able to get a flight in

Got the test flight in yesterday and it flew great. Mine was a little nose heavy on take off, but when I put the gear up it was perfect. Handles nice and is very fast with the engine setup I have in it. Had a little mess up on landing and came in a little fast and pulled back (like I do with all my tail drager warbirds) and lost steering for a second, but it was long enough for it to clip the wing tip on the fence. Minor damage which was repaired last night. It's going to be hard to rememder to push forward on the sicks once it's down

No video as my camerman was talking .... again

I have an Eflite Power 160 with two 5800 mah 6S pack in series. It puts about about 3 HP (3000 watts)

Lost of power. It flew at half throttle just fine and was pleanty fast at that setting. Full throttle was FAST !!!

It lands great just remember to push down on the stick so you don't raise the nose like me
