Wow!
That's a great piece of engineering!
I did not know the P-47 canopies were powered. It must have been tough to bail out waiting for it to open.

I thought they were like the P-40 & P-51 canopies and were pulled back by the pilot in one big yank.
I'll have to use simple air cylinders to simulate the pilot yanking it open.
Thanks for the cool video!

Thanks for the lesson Greg. I am soon to be spraying my first finish soon and would have asked the same questions soon. That was a great tutorial. I don't expect mine to come out nearly as good as yours, because I'm sure it takes some practice, but I feel a bit more confident now that I've been taught some real techniques.thanks again. Steve.

No problem Steve. Its easy to achieve good results with KlassKote, it sprays well, covers better than anything I've come across and is extremely durable.

The downside is that your "buddies" will be exhuming your body along with your planes afterwards.

And if the 'widow' is not too sharp, she will sell your planes for what you SAID you paid for them

Can anyone tell me if the top flite 60 P-47 cowl should overlap the fuse or butt up to it ?

Pages 23-24, steps 7,8, and 12 have illustrations that should answer your questions.

Page 45 and 46 of the manual show it butted to the fuse around the bottom and the cowl flaps slightly above the fuse.

I have a YA P47. I put Hitec 645MG on the flaps. The flaps move with great ease but my servos are constantly buzzing when holding the flaps up or down.
i have tried all kinds of combinations with the throws but they still keep buzzing.
Should I use a larger servo or what??
All advice welcome... Thanks

That should be more than enough servo. You tried setting your end points?

Your other option might be using digital servos on the flaps. I had the same issue and digitals cured the noise.

Is it the 60 size or the GS? In my experience, digitalis were always noisier. I'm assuming your geometry is correct?

Yes, the geometry is correct. And it is the GS version. Sorry about not being clear on that issue earlier.

I've used these servos for years....sometimes they buzz,but it has never caused a problem.I've adjusted the end-points and they still buzz....sometimes.

I have flown corsairs, spitfires, mustangs and of course P-47 and have found the p-47 is by far the most stable on the ground and air. Is this what other folks have found?

Agreed. I fly a P-47 when I want to relax and have fun. I fly a P-40 when I want to be stressed out.......

Is there any binding in your hinge system?
