All, I scanned the forum a couple of times, couldn't find an answer. This is probably pretty basic.

I have a 4.8v, 600mAh flight pack battery. I discharge/charge it regularly with an...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Hi Eric! Yea, that spinner is killer, literally I guess, if your cutout doesn't allow for the changes in the prop pitch at speed. Same thing happened to me (less the 9 stitches). Put a tru turn...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

All, sorry for the late update. Flew my bird a couple of weeks back, and was extremely impressed. Ground handling was outstanding, no nose over. Take off was smooth, and it required *zero* rudder...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Jester, well, I had my bird on my work bench yesterday ... reached for a piece of wood from my scrap pile, and the whole stack fell on the never flown P-51d. Argh. Cracked the horizontal stab...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Went to the field last Saturday to give this bird a try ... aside from having the flaperons backwards (my bad), everything was A-OK. Started to taxi out, and it pulled hard to the right. A bit of...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Jester, I finished mine P-51 over the weekend. Like you, mine balanced perfectly without having to move the radio gear around. The canopy was a bit deformed, but I managed to get it on and have it...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Jester, hey, one question for you... the pushrods to the elevator and rudder. Mine move, but it takes a little effort. Definately is not smooth. They seem to bind where the rod exits the fuse. ...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

Jester, you were right on those servo mounts .. definately a disaster waiting to happen. I went with z-bends as well.

On the cowl, my experience was the same as yours. 125mm is not nearly...

Flaperons on P-51??

All, has anyone experimented with flaperons on a P-51 (without flaps, of course ;) ). If so, how much throw would you recommend? How much down elevator to mix in, as a starting point?

Thanks,...

RE: Double Trouble, P-51D, Setup/Mods (ARF)

RE: Saito 100, 14x8 prop - 8800 rpm tach?

All, I think the nut of my question is ...

If my Saito FA91 can throw a 13x8 at 10,100 RPMs, I'm sure it can throw 13x10 in the mid-900's.

It seems the FA100 does not have the same...
