I flew the Wildcat after painting when the sky was overcast. It was mostly a dark plane in the sky unless I banked and could see the yellow on the wings. I took it out today for its first flight with 3 blade prop. Sun was out and all the colors stood out. Really looked good. Could not tell any differant from 2 blade prop but I am not a speed flyer. I am use to flying WWI planes and on landing I bring them in close and chop power and they slow to a nice soft landing. I brought the Wildcat in, chopped power and watched it not loose speed and fly right on by. I added power for a waveoff and next time brought it in much lower for a fast landing. Now I am working on getting the old FW-190 going.
