TW747III Home made Cowl.

Hi All. I have a TW747III and really like it. All worked very well, but , as said, the instr Manual was of little help. So one day I was flying and landed it on it's nose... OOPS. Bent Mtr shaft, broke mtr mount and took out ESC and Receiver. Parts? Where to buy.. Finally found a mtr shaft, ESC and Receiver, but that leaves me without a Cowl..I made my own motor mount.. To this day I have not found any place to buy a Cowl. So I made one out of a one gallon milk jug. Cut the top off the jug the right length to fit over motor and mount on body. Cut the handle off of the jug and had a nice hole on the top to cool the motor. It's back in the air again.

Here is the question for all you TW747III owners.. Where are you getting your parts????

Just a guess but the LED controller may be defective. I've not had one apart but it figures it would be like a Christmas tree light string, you know thoughs little bulbs that make the lights blink.
All that the lights do is blink on and off. Mine work but it would only be useful for night flying, otherwise it's just a drain on the battery. But it does look kind of cool.

Just wondering: Has anyone bought the RTF version of this plane? If so, any particular thoughts,suggestions, or advice? I like the plane a lot, but I'm concerned about the quality.
Thanks. jim

Have you read the first post in this thread?
It pretty much explains everything about this RTF kit.

Yes, I bought the floats here. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=15148

Yes, I would recommend them for this plane. They worked fine for me but I did have to make a couple of mods to it as I described in the article.

LED Connector

A really dumb question: the red and black connector cable that comes out of the bottom portion of the black LED "box" .... the end of this connector cable is encased in a white, plastic "box" that is open on one end (inside the box are four
holes, with two male plugs extending out from the two outside holes) ..... what/where do I connect this cable?? Help!! Thanks. jim

Lanyu, Cessna 182 Skylane, TW-747-III Parts

Just curious: does anyone know where parts might be available for this plane? I've sent a few emails to the dealer in California who sold me the plane, but he has not replied. I need to replace the entire front landing gear assembly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I bought this kit in the RTF version. It advertised as only having 4 servos but it came with 6. The other 2 were mounted for the flaps. The decal sheet got a little dinged up due to the way it was inserted in the box before shipment (but that will be fine). The radio and transmitter seem pretty straight forward, but I still have yet to build the kit yet. I'm boning up my skills with a Clouds Jet from HK first before I attempt to fly this beast. The funny thing about this order was, the PNP price was only 15 dollars less than the RTF version so I figured I'd go ahead and buy the RTF version.

Hi pilots,

Does anyone know if I can use bigger wheels on this airplane? Our field is a grass field and Im not sure if the plane will be able to takeoff yet. I have not built the plane yet mind you, so I cant check that out for myself yet. Im just wondering if anyone else here has had issues taking off from grass and/or if they were able to change the wheels out for bigger ones.

Thanks
