I'm about to start a build on a FOCKE WULF FW-190-A 70 - ESM i will Run a DLE 55 or DLA 56 not sure at this stage
I will pick up the plane and retracts today and if my local HS gives me a good deal on the motor i will buy the DLE 55 if not i will get the DLA 56 from HK it's about 180dollars cheaper landed here in NZ
A couple of guys from another club are running DLE55 in their THUNDERBOLT P-47D 1800mm wingspan i was very Impressed at the performance
The instructions says you need 4 High torque servos and 5 standard servos, I will use Hyperion Atlas FMD20 digitals for the hight torque ones
Can anyone tell me what good standard digital servos i could get from HK
These look like a nice servo but I'm not sure about the quality :rolleyes:

The DLE55 looks good:)not as big as expected I will mount it and see how much I'll have to cut out of the cowel:o

I'm planning to get the 70" WS EMS FW 190. I will be interested in how your build goes.

I Have another friend putting the 55 in a ESM Ki-84 Hayate :)it will make a nice change from the norm:D
Everything looked good till I put the muffler on the motor :rolleyes:
A few pics of the motor mounted and [Cowl hacking] you could call it :o
some finishing off on the cowl. Servos next Not sure how much i like the pull pull elevator setup they recommend :cool:

Looks like you did a good job relieving the cowl to clear the muffler.

Thanks I tried :o a DLE55 rear exaust would have worked much better

That's an awful lot of engine for that size plane.

Cheers,

Cheers,

LOL I know what you saying:p But the reality is that it only weight 280 gram more than a DLE 30

Any progress on the plane?
I just ordered the same kit from ESM that I intend to couple with a DLE-35RA. Just can't wait!!

Which is fine because this plane requires a snot load of nose weight. Might as well make use of the weight instead of dead lead.

I built one with a saito 180 up front. I added 9oz of dead weight PLUS 2x 6v 2300mah nimh rx packs ONTOP of the motormount rails in front of the firewall.
Also put the throttle servo in front of the firewall too.

With that 55 gasser, you'll probably need to put the ignition module AND its battery in front of the firewall to get correct balance. CG should be 133mm from leading edge. Do not put it further back. This plane is especially sensitive to even being close to tail heavy.

Every plane is this photo is mine save the small PICA 190 D9 at far left. You can see the 70" ESM fw-190A nicely in this shot. The ESM air gear for this plane works quite well, but you need to make sure you take the air cylinder apart and put some teflon/plumbers tape on the threads and then put it back together. Locktite all bolts and WD40 the axles occasionally since it's metal on metal.

Hi Demarchi
I have made this plane a kind of a long term project so i work on it in between my other projects, I'm trying to finish my Nemesis NXT at the moment I'm nearly there retracts, wing servos and I will be able to maiden it
BTW feel free to post any pictures of your build, the more the merrier I say ;)


Hi kahloq

Thanks for the info great idea about putting the throttle servo on the firewall. I will do that for sure
you have a fantastic fleet in your hangar :D
Did you do any work on the retract mount on the wings?, I have been told that they are very week and that i should beef them up
Do you have any video of yours flying ?
Any pictures of your throttle servo setup?
Cheers
Adrian

I added extra glue around the joints in the retract mount areas, but nothing drastic.

Pics.
In the 1st one.....the throttle servo is on the underside of the tray.

2nd one shows routing of the flex muffler. I dont recommend this as it is too easy for the motor to flood and happens quickly. I have to use surgical clamp(hemostats) to pinch close the carb fuel line while fueling and can only remove them until Im absolutely ready to start the motor. Also have to fill an outside fuel tankl of same displacement as whats in the plane then transfer it to plane otherwise cylinder will still flood thru the muffler exhaust port. This can be avoided if a fuel regulator is installed.

3rd pics shows I made the gun hood open so I could hide all the switches.
