One gear hung up, tried cycling , some g -manoeuvres no luck, lowered flaps and did belly landing.

All good, no blade damage. Suspect gear was catching on wheel well will investigate.

Stay away from those nasty hospitals Sean, there's sick people there.
Yes, that was no fun at all, but unfortunately not out of the woods yet!
Glad to see you got out, been a couple of weeks since since I've been out.

But I do know where there is a T60 not being used, not far from you!
And the advantage is yours, the wife is keeping me homebound for a while!

Is it possible to put these 1700mm retracts on the 1400mm without too much "surgery"?

I finally got some real flights on a used 47 I bought 5 months ago, the Lipo that came with it was in its final death throes so I never got a decent full power flight. Bought an Admiral 6s 4500 from Diamond which makes the plane balance perfectly and it flew fantastic. Not gobs of power for vertical but more than plenty for scale and then some flying. What a rock steady aircraft that is a piece of cake to land. The Admiral battery works great and is great performance for the price. I'm going to play with moving the CG back little by little until it gets a little sensitive, right now it's VERY smooth on elevator.

Great to hear mine was grossly underpowered with the stock set up but now has plenty with the motor and esc upgraded it has pretty much all the vertical power that is needed for a much bigger plane lol

Razorback conversion

Welp finally started work on my conversion. Just finished my Eurofighter dual seater conversion (minus the canopy), so ideas are fresh in my mind. Here a lil sneak peek at what I've done so far.

Thanks Rye!

My P47 has been getting the cold shoulder from me as of late even though shes my favorite warbird (Razorback version). so i needed to do this conversion to get that twinkle back in my eye. Figured FMS wasnt going to do it for me anytime soon.

Looks awesome! mine has been getting the same shoulder since I read about the motor board failures, going to get the upgrade and get her airborn again.
Looking forward to a new offering in this size or possibly larger.
