Seagull PT-19 C of G?

Can anyone help me with this please? C of G for a Seagull PT-19, 46 size?

Manual says 65 - 75 mm back from the leading edge of the wing measured at the wing tip would you believe.
Even if...

DMHiel

How did you find your ailerons with the standard throw? Mine are a bit slow when performing rolls and will need adjusting up.

Yes, I have been off the circuit for a while beause of interference...

The Final Test

Well all, here is the low down. Sorry for the delay, but with 2-3 months of windy Sundays and other commitments, it has taken this long to sort this out, not to mention the loss of motivation once...

AnnMarie, in fairness to Hitec I am intending to do exactly that - to try the "known" Futaba RX in the suspect plane. If it also gets the hits, then we know it's a plane set-up thing, if it doesn't...

Futabe TX + Hitec RX + Hits

Here's an interesting one. I am getting hits running a Hitec dual conversion RX with a Futaba TX on 36 MHz.

I haver tried another RX and crytal, again Hitec, with the same result. Now for the...

I bought mine 3 months ago, so I guess I am at the end of the line. But this could also go the other way where they fix some of their earlier problems in later incarnations. I think they just got...

A Needle Huh!

That's a good idea. Will keep it in mind for next time. I guess after use you have to suck up some acetone to clean it out.

Thanks for the tip, Steve.

Glueing

I tend to put too much CA on the wick hinges (after they're in) and then spend forever trying to free them up. Is there a better way? I am at this point with my Corsair.

Color Scheme

Just be wary about the color scheme. Mine had a really dark blue fibreglass fuselage and wing roots, but then lighter blue wing tips, elevator and rudder.

The wings and things were obviously a...

Saggy Baggy Spitfire

I have a saggy, baggy elephant too that is a Spitfire on cool days, but turns into the "elephant" on a hot summer's day.

I have heard somewhere that on a cold day the covering can pop (tear) with...

I am glad all is OK, except for the wing, what a bummer. I always get nervous when onlookers come in too close and seem to step on every free spot around the plane, but the plane - it's only a...

Pushrods

Yeah, I know what you mean about the push rods, but on this particular plane I think they are OK. I have had previous planes which had to be changed.

I did change the throttle rod because I was...

Set-Up?

Just wondering where your CG ended up? Did you set it up per the book or calculate your own?

My P-51D Mustang has it forward rather than backward in the tolerance range (120 mm, not the 130 mm...

Loops

Could it be the difference between doing loops upwind versus downwind?

During upwind loops the wind could catch the wing as it comes up to vertical, thus tending to flip it over backwards at a...

Yep, I agree with your thinking, but I thought you weren't happy with your plane's performce in terms of loops, etc. Hence my suggestion of a larger prop.

If its speed you're after, then you're...

RPM's

OK, I understand what you mean about the rpms, you need to keep them up a bit for this engine.

You don't think though that if you are going to try a 10x7 or 10x8 that you might try a 11x6? You'll...

Prop. Selection

If you are not happy with the planes aerobatic performance I would change your prop to say a 11 x 6 or 11 x 7. You'll get better pulling power and take-offs, but probably less speed, although you may...

I went out Sunday for another trial flight. This time I got one of the club pro's to take it up. My original instructor actually.

Earlier issue were now sorted out, but some new ones developed.

Landing

I am used to landing my trainers, high wing and low wing, at idle speed. My low wing comes down like a brick and I have to hold in up elevator.

With a wheels down landing on a warbird, do you mean...

OK Anderson, from what I glean from your learned input, the Mustang is a floater, whereas the Corsair is not and should be landed somewhat "hot".

That's good advise as I probably would have tried...

Corsair

Nice looking plane Anderson. Your fuselage looks like a lighter blue than mine. I have one with a very dark fuse, it almost looks black in the low light of the garage. Hence the issue between the...

LA Idle

Is the engine inverted? If so, I had the same problem. I switched to a wider heat range #8 plug and 10% nitro. But what really improved it was turned out the air bleed screw all the way.

It tends...

My Mustang nosed over so badly on its first day out that I couldn't even get it off the ground. I bent the landing gear (off of plane) exactly one inch forward. Then came back to try again and...
