Be ready for left yaw with your right rudder. Once your tail comes up you can ease off the back pressure some and let her get up to speed. As big as she is she flies very light. Light on her feet to. I'd stay off the flaps for awhile and if you use them make it extremely small deflection. The motion RC vids of Hun Hunter use little to no flap. Check them out. You can see the yaw under power as well.
Best wishes

If you hold right though the climb out it's some much more scale. Guys need to learn to use the rudder all the time. Fly a heli it will make you some much smoother.

appreciated

Thanks for the information. Will pay attention to "left yaw" and my rudder input. I do fly helicopters. Started with them.

Carbow,

I am new to this bird and one thing I will say is she will nose over quickly so I have had to take my time on take offs so as not to hit the prop.. On landings I only use mid flaps as she will slow down nicely. Believe it or not this big plane will flare and then come down hard so keep her level on landings and a little speed..

These are just my views and advise from my 10 or so flights so far, so take them with a grain of salt as i am sure other more experienced pilots will chime in..

thank you for your help

First flight went well. Take off and landing on our rough field was fine. Not much trim needed to get level flight. Early morning maiden was with no wind, club field empty, and no bugs. Concentrated on all the takeoff information (great stuff form here) and she flew without a hitch. Had a bigger grin on my face then when I first flew my Carbon-Z Cub.

So I am considering this bird. I own the FMS FW-190 1400mm and really enjoy it. I probably have 30-40 flights on my 190 and I'd like to get a P-47. I have to be able to detach the wings so that leaves out the 1400mm (they really need to update the version to have detachable wings).

I plan on purchasing from Motion RC. One question I have is what is the length of each wing half?

Each wing half measures approx. 32.5 inches (826 mm).
