RE: New Hitec Aurora 9-Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System

It would have been nice if the 9X had been released before summer was close to ending so that pilots could have purchased it and thoroughly used/evaluated it during the summer flying months. I'm in...

RE: Engine Choice for a 73 inch J3 Cub.

I had a GP .40-size Cub and it was powered by an OS .46LA, which was more than enough. With that said, I wouldn't have gone with a smaller power-plant than that. If I remember correctly, it had a...

RE: Top Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9 Build

Thanks again Marty!

Progress has been ongoing but slow; not enough to show photos really. I only get a little bit of time each evening to work on the Fw. I've been working on the lower fuse...

RE: Top Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9 Build

Hi Z,

Thanks for the info, and that sure was a beautiful Dora! Shame that it's no more. I already have the set of Spring-Airs for it, but I may be interested in the cowl and spinner. I will send...

RE: Top Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9 Build

Got some more work accomplished. Now that I finished the sliding-canopy tracks inside the fuselage, I finished gluing the stringers and the pushrod tubes. I also glued the canopy frames, and can now...

Hi everyone,

Glad to see the ongoing discussion. Yesterday, there was a fun-fly at the local club, so I decided to go and submit my membership application and fly! I still got some work...

RE: Top Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9 Build

Glad to hear I'm not the only one with a missing turtle-deck block. I think I'll go ahead and try your idea of scratch building a built-up turtle-deck. I was planning on hollowing out the balsa...

RE: Top Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9 Build

Thanks for the info! I'll have to take another look at Spektrum too. I will be sure to take my time to read up about proper 2.4 setup. Luckily, I already use 6.0 V, so that's not a change. I'm also...

Hi everyone,

I'd like to share with you and document my build of a Top-Flite Focke Wulf Fw-190 D9. I purchased this kit way back in 2006, and started building it in 2009. Unfortunately, grad...

RE: Fuel Pump what wont leak after a few months

I'm with Mike here. My first fuel pump was electric, and lasted for a little more than a season (though, with little use). After that, per suggestions I read on RCU, I purchased a hand crank pump,...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

Finished up my Twist V2 and took it out into the sun to snap a few photos. I didn't feel like trying to dye the canopy for fear of also dying the pre-painted border. Also didn't feel like buying a...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

No, I put some near the leading edge after seeing where 3rd Time's Twist cracked. I can still put some near the TE, though I still don't think I'll need it.

I just realized something about...

I'm finally almost finished assembling mine. I've been taking it easy, working on it a bit every day after I get home from classes. I put some carbon cloth on the fuselage at the leading edge of the...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

3rd Time,

I see a plastic tube in pic #2 that I assume is the pushrod guide tube. Did that come with yours, or did you had to supply it yourself? I'm pretty sure mine didn't come with one. Just...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

So far, I haven't found any major structural changes, but then again I don't exactly remember the V1's structure. I'm not sure if the fuselage has been strengthened in the rear wing saddle area. I've...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

I also bought an original V1 for $99 back in 2005 or 2006. When I crashed it last summer, Hobbytown had another one for $180. I just couldn't do it, no matter how much fun/mileage I got out of the...

RE: Hangar 9 Twist 3D Part II - Thread Continuation

It seems that it's so similar that they didn't even bother updating the manual except for the new covering colors. I haven't noticed any structural differences, just cosmetic. My rudder came with the...

RE: 3 cub setup questions

I wouldn't worry about the tail wheel. The Great Planes .40 Cub kit is setup this way also and I never had a problem with it for the few years I had that Cub.
