If you have access to a watt meter, that would tell us a lot about what going on with your setup.

What are the rest of the figures. Watts alone doesn't tell much of a story. Also which prop, esc setup are you using, original or newer version?

I remaidened my Yellow 6 after my ECS/BEC died on the first flight resulting in a snapped fuse and destroyed firewall. Although easily repaired I just grabbed a new fuse, and will eventually get around to fixing the other and keeping it as a spare.

The weather was perfect, a flat calm autumn morning, and the Wulf flew exceptionally well with the 100A Plush ESC on 5S. The first maiden required zero trim while this time around it required a lot of down trim and right aileron. I did rush the build the night before so it probably wasn't perfect but once trimmed there were no issues.

I don't think I've ever been so nervous after the last mishap and the heart was racing during that first flight thinking what if the electrics go again. After 4 flights I called it a morning and all was in tact and left the park a happy chappy. First landing I got the 190 bounce but after that, with some speed and a nice run out the next 3 were silky smooth landings.

It is a great flying plane, it just has real presence in the air, and is a worthy addition to the hangar for anyone sitting on the fence if they're not sure they should make the investment. I made 5 min flights, with a mixture of throttle management, but most was just easy going with the occasional speed pass and the cells came down with 3.96v on average. It has great climb, speedy roll on high rates, and can fly inverted very well.

The FW-190 is a keeper.

It's just a great feeling when everything goes well with a warbird-eh Ben? I love packing a plane into my car in the same condition as when it first got to the field! Good luck with your yellow 6 as I have the red 8! Kevin

Yeah I agree Kevin, it's always good returning in once piece. Red 8 looks the goods too, and I was really torn as to which one I should get. Maybe when the funds permit I might get both

Nice Ben- I have wanted for a couple of years to add an fms p-51 Big Beautiful Doll to my hanger! It's just currently our Canadian dollar is down to .80 us and the U.S.A. is where the vendors are! So when our buck regains i'll look into it further. The fms 1400mm Stuka I can get from SN Hobbies on our west coast to go with the fms fw-190.
