Broken E-Flite Motor Prop Shaft

During a recent flight with my FuntanaX, pilot error caused the airplane to crash, causing the prop shaft to break clean off at the motor. It appears that there is a set screw holding the prop shaft...

RE: e-flite p-38

Well, I'll find out if the 2100 meets the need just as soon as the wind starts to behave. I really enjoyed building this one, and it went together fairly quick, rudders, gear and all............

RE: Yellow Aircraft P-40 Engine?

Chris,

IMO, I would mount the engine and then build the mock up to avoid any possible misalignment. There is little to no room for error inside the cowl. You will not be disappointed with this...

RE: Yellow Aircraft P-40 Engine?

Chris,

The lead in the copper tubing works really well. Be sure to do this before you glue the hinge points in for the rudder. I cut a generous section out of the rudder post, between the hinge...

RE: Yellow Aircraft P-40 Engine?

Chris,

The stacks are the same as far as I know. The difference is the mounting of the cross-over manifold and header. Kelvin will send you some wood to mock up your setup, and will make the...

Jeff,

Fred's 3W-75I spins right where Bobby at Cactus Aviation said it should with the 23x11 3 blade. the pull from this combination literally left marks in the back of Fred's legs from holding...

RE: Yellow Aircraft P-40 scale exhaust system

David,

For a scale appearance, the rear intake type engines are your best bet. The 3W-75 that I mounted in Fred's P-40 almost needed a shoe horn, but required no work to the cowl to make it fit....

I did not do any of the paint work. A very good friend of mine did the work. I will pass your questions on to him. With a bit of luck, he can post the answers to your questions.

RE: Help needed with Byron 47 retracts

If the plastic bolts are made from Nylon, you can boil them for 5-10 minutes in water to take the brittleness out. You will see a...
