See you soon, Nono28
Thank you for the offer of help, and the good advice.

I have an affinity for double dihedral aircraft and in spite of the building challenges they pose, I've got to give one a try. As the kits are CNC cut, I'm trusting that the angles will be correct.

Installation of the carbon fiber rod wing stiffeners would seem to be the greatest challenge. I'm guessing that the cuts will have to vary in depth to allow for the rods to bend across the angle changes without breaking.
I'll be getting some spare rods, and may try some some CF ribbon and/or strips.

Hi
You can read the review by Rc Model World of those combats on my website http://www.flying-dog.co.uk/shop/rc-...iew-pm-19.html
Build is extremely easy even if you never have build a model before.
Some more info of those is here on RCG http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1456683
Have fun - but best get 2 or more - some streamers and find somebody to chase - 1 model is fun - but with 2 the fun is 4 times bigger

Quite agree with Mammut need to go tickle the glider in two axes structure Balsa Dean's association with these devices EPP, he built a cohesive group that accepts the rules of the fight with the devices same weight and the same power drawn.

Mammut, you too are a killer with an airbrush, nice decoration for your spitfire, one must also gain weight with this finish?

Thanks for the links, mammuth. I've seen in the Polish forums, and now in the flying-dog review the use of Emax motors. I've used several with good result myself. Just happen to have a CF 2812 on hand that needs a home.

Your Spitfire vid has me wishing I'd have ordered one of the ESA models as well. I especially liked the lo-o-o-w level pass to a vertical climb.

I briefly considered procuring a P-51 from the flying-dog site but the landing gear is likely out of my league (sigh).

Airbrushing was done by my mate Gary (also here on this forum - have a look at his blog http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=57639
The weight is not a problem if you keep it under 400g - EASY !

Mazzepa1 - just go for it mate - don't worry about the landing gear ( not mine anyway LOL ) - the P51 is of a friend of mine from Poland - Tomasz vel Motylasty - wicked chap - check his website (click the picture - it's a translation by google - not very good - but just a pictures will do it justice)
http://translate.google.com/translat...ex.htm&act=url

Low passes with the ESA models are just a pleasure to do - even if you hit the ground - you can repair it in few minutes time - so no stress at all
I hit the concrete - straight nose down from a few meters hight at last year NATS here in UK - nose disintegrated - had it back in the air in less than 10 minutes LOL - at low settings it's almost a trainer - but flip a swich and it just goes MAD
Best of all - you can fly it in quite a strong wind - had it moving backwards once at a local hill - ratio price to fun - best from all the models I have, got my spit almost all the time in the car "just in case I get lost" coming back from shopping

Is 251 watts too powerful????

I'm using an 8x4 APC style prop but I think I might bring this down to a 7x4 or 7x3, as I have visions of the motor pulling away from the plane!!!

I/m using a 3s 1500mah and the AUW is 393g, minus any paint or decals. I might also look at smaller batteries too. Can't wait to get this baby flying!

Hi Daz393,
You can use the Emax 2812

with this propeller
http://cgi.ebay.fr/220-2x-Folding-Pr...item2ebe46522d
and after you build a plane like this...

See you soon, Bruno

I've been in Mr. Motylasty's site some over the past few days. The translation does make it a bit tedious, but I've gleaned enough to realize that he is quite an interesting fella.
I enjoyed his sermons, a man after my own heart.

I flew my Spitfire for the first time and with a little trimming it flew hands off! I had 3 flights and quite frankly I can't wait to get it out there again! Very impressed with this plane. I'll be trying a new 10x6 prop as the 7.5x4 seemed under powered. I have an 8x6 on order, so that will be here before my next flight, so I'll take them both to see which performs best.
