Thanks Stuart - will do. Flew the P47 this morning. The old MP Jet "Big Blue" (28/7 - 35D) wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding and the plane just limped around the sky. Could barely loop and any sort of climbing greater then 15 degrees was out of the question.

Seems to have a bad bearing noise, possibly from the crash. I pulled the motor apart and am trying to clean them out (they seem to be double shielded type - not sealed, so whatever is in there may hopefully come out). I can source some new ones locally if necessary, but for little more then twice the cost of the bearings I could get the same motor as I have fitted to the Corsair. This gives the Corsair unlimited vertical and loops as large as you like. What to do....?
