P51

Here is my P51 it has a few parts missing and has no instructions, so I hope as I ask questions and show pics that the rc builders out there can help

Here is the hardware I got. I would like to mount the retractablt tail wheel. I would guess that I have to cut out the fuse.

I'm sure we can walk you through it,,

In case you didn't know, that was made by a defunct company called "Giant Scale Planes"

Found a build thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1571482

good luck

I'd say Yes, Likely that's how it's designed to work for that model.

I drilledand test fit my Robart hinges in elevators. I drew out where I thought the flaps and ailerons pivot points should be. How many hinges per surface?

Ok today I drilled and fitted the flaps and ailorons. couldn't find any grease for hinges so I will pick some up tomarrow and glue all control surfaces.

On another note I'm looking at the DLA 64 inline for a power plant. Any thoughs on them are welcome.

Specs from the other build log say 24lb for plane
Spec for DLA 64 say 30 lb thrust.
