im current running a stock parkzone T28D.
thinking about the p47, will this be any better performance wise.
(im trying to find a good reason to buy one, apart from the reason that it has retracts)

I flies as well as the T28, I fact I find it better, much smoother, like a warbird should be. On the stock set-up I think it might have a little more power than the T28 (from what i remember, I sold mine last year). Plus it looks far nicer that the T28 IMO, so there is reason enough It also depends where you are flying it. For the true warbird flying experience, you really need a big open area/rc club for those low and long strafing runs But really I wouldn't fly this or any model of this size in ANY public park.

Buy it, sell your T28 to fund the purchase even, you won't be disappointed.

A few years back I tried every retract I could find, but none would stand up to the punishment of a grass field. I don't want to spend a good deal of money on the Eflite retracts only to find out that they don't stand up to the punishment either.
i fly everytime with this p47 and i am landing on grass.
No problems.

If my receiver locks out/blacks out/whatever due to the stock BEC being overloaded, I should have a blinking light on my receiver, correct? Just wondering, because there were a couple instances flying today where I thought maybe it happened, but I had a solid light after landing.

Very nice video! Nice job of flying and landing as well. Were you using one of those KeyChain cameras? And where exactly did you have it mounted? Did you use Velcro only or some sort of mount. Thanks.

yes it should be blinking if the receiver browns out. im running retracts flaps and everthing else and would not trust it to the stock bec. i have a cc bec for it, its not required but at $25 its cheap innsurance.

everyone thinks the stock bec is not good enough - but it is - i dont think your going to lower your flaps and gear while move all other control surfaces at the same time to overload it - if so im sure when the plane was developed they would have thought of it

+1. As long as you leave everything else stock, motor,esc, and use the recommended servos the stock esc works just fine. I had a few flights on mine stock with no problems. It's when you start swapping props that you need to start to worry about the stock esc.

I just had the maiden. I used the Power25 1250kv/60amp on a 3s 2200 40c with a 10x7prop and even with that setup it's got unlimited vertical, was faster than my Power10 Wildcat, and still will fly at a crawl. Next up will be 4s with a 8x8.....it should haul.

The stock BEC is rated at 700 Mah (.7 amps). My Watts Up meter indicated a peak amp draw of 2.27 amps while cycling the retracts and servos. The meter provides me with enough empirical data that I don't think the stock BEC is not good enough, I know for a fact the stock BEC is underrated.

Since I've decided that I actually like this POS styro plane, I am not willing to chance a crash when a 3 amp Switching UBEC costs less than $10.00.

Regards,

Anthony

Just got my p-47!
i got as a gift w/o servos for flaps. how effective is the flap setup. ill be landing on grass and dont want to belly land. So im thinking ill wait for the flaps to help me land w/o tearing off my fixed landing gear. My friend does it with his messer. he noses over 80% of the time, but i think i can do it better Is it significant in how much it slows down the plane to help reduce nosing over or busting up the gear on rougher grass?

I think the flaps will help significantly, and I've not noticed a significant "balloning up" of the plane when they're applied (some folks on here have). I think it's still going to be a challenge for you to avoid nose-overs if you're landing on taller grass, if that's what you mean by "rougher." I'm landing on "rougher" grass in the sense of it being well-worn soccer and baseball fields, where the grass isn't great but not too terribly long, with patches of packed dirt, and I've not suffered many nose-overs. Great plane--you'll enjoy it!

I've not hand-launched my P-47, but had little problem hand-launching the 109, which has a reputation for being harder because of torque roll. Some right rudder and a firm toss and it was fine; I think the P-47 would hand-launch fine given how steady it flies.
