Anyway. After a frustrating set of crashes 18 months ago and a lenghty repair, today I finally got a couple of decent flights.

I didn't know how powerful this motor is! She took off in less than 15 feet.

I still needed to add 15g of ballast to the nose to balance.

Since I changed to electrics retracts with plastic trunions, the issue now are the wobbling legs. I will need to change the piano wire with something more sturdy.

I really like this plane, bus she is a beeach!

Strange enough, on landing, I reduced the motor to less than 1/4 thr and the propeller stopped.

Video coming soon.

Yes, but only by a little. The two blade was pulling about 49-51 amps, while the three blade was pulling about 46 amps. This is with a 4s, and depending on the battery, I was getting in the range of 720-790 watts. My motor is the Turnigy SK 3548-900. Tach readings with the three blade was 9720 rpms, which is really good. That should give me at least 70 mph in the air.

I'm assuming you'll be using the 13" with a 3s system? Unless yours can handle much higher amp draw?

fan unit

a buddy of mine used the fan and spinner from a flyzone 190. the diameter was smaller then the hyperian but he glued strips of styrene to the blades.

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be a radiator for liquid cooling, not a fan for air cooling.

Prop Spinner?

I just finished building my FW190, but the prop spinner has me stumped. It does not have a collet, or any other obvious way that I can see to mount this on the 5mm motor shaft. Is there something that I am missing?

Sure, here is what they gave me...

The long nut has a large inner thread that is very course, and it also has a fine inner thread for the spinner bolt to attach into. I have 6 various collet adapters for electric motors that have a 5mm shaft, but they all have a finer thread than what the spinner nut has.

I just measured the one they supplied me (looks the same), and it's a M6 metric inside thread (6mm diameter with 1mm thread pitch). Hope that helps match it up.

I think the newer Hyperion collets are drilled and tapped for spinner hold down screws.

Thanks for the help guys!

Do you know if I should get the long, or the extra long on the M6 collet adapter?

I would just buy both, and chuck the less suitable one in the spare parts box

I called the hobby shop and was told that the Hyperion spinners need the Extra long 6mm adapter. Once I receive it, I will confirm.

BTW... the prop fan piece that glues into the cowling was very brittle on my model, and it broke into many pieces when I tried to bend it a little. I went ahead and ordered the Parkzone FW190 cowling on ebay for $5.00, and when I get it I am going to cut out the propr fan portion and modify it to fit.

Does anyone know of a way to get the camoflauged wing covering material? I scraped a wing tip on my first landing and it tore off a couple inches of the covering. For now, I have just used some clear packing tape to seal up the hole.
