Scott- Glad to see you received your bird. Will you be posting the results from your wattage tests with the 3 Balde props?

Regards,

ok, friends.....i'm in! just placed my order. i am really excited for this one, as the dc3 has always been a favorite of mine. i am thinking i'll do the traditional olive drab over gull grey paint scheme. i am going to email callie graphics right now to see what they can do as far as some scale decals. i am looking forward to seeing all of the different ways that this plane is being dressed up. hoping for lots of pictures!

Great Rob! Maybe one of these days, we Right Coast guys can get our "Goonie Birds" together for a grand fly-in. I can't say this enough...Wait until u see how she flies.

thanks! i am really excited for it's arrival. i watched your vid and the one from nitro last night, it really looks like it flys great (and leaps and bounds better than the first dc3 i tried). thinking it will arive next week sometime....

edit: check this out, fellows...i was hunting around for paint/decal schemes and i found this. my dad didn't fly the dc3, but he got hired into the old convairs when he started there in the mid 60's. isn't this a beauty!

rob- Nice Braniff scheme!

Zagi-Thanks for the info.

I'm currently on hold with painting my AC-47 due to high winds. I paint outside to keep the overspray off everything in the garage. I really need a paint booth!

I am having a problem with the motors, one is tighter than the other when you hook up the battery, so it has un even torque which results in plane spinning around on ground, when you pull the battery off, it seems to be normal again, any ideas on what is causing this?

Is the battery fully charged? Are the motors spinning the same direction? Are the ESCs connected right to the motors? Just trying to eliminate potential issues.

I had to order one of these myself today after reading this thread. Looks like a great plane for the money! Can't wait! How fast does Nitro usually ship these out?

Zagi Crazee,
Contact Nitroplanes. I've had good experience with Nitroplanes/Xheli customer service in the past. It wouldn't hurt to point out this discussion group to them...I'm sure we're all interested in hearing how it goes.

Very interested in the outcome as well. I had a feeling this DC-3 would catch on. It looks and flies too good not to. We owe it all to Bladehead for the first post and review. Thanks!
