I run a power 32.. I got rid of the motor mount and bolted the motor straight to the fire wall.. I set the cowl back about half a inch... It fits great.. Also helps with CG being farther back..

I run 60amp ESC and 4s.. 12x10 prop.. Its a total animal!!.. Just a lil tough to get in the air with tq of the motor pulling it to the side so bad.. But once up it flies like a dream.. as much power as you want at any time any where..... will disappear into the clouds.

Thanks for the feedback on that, I really want to run the HL 4-blade on mine, were there any mods to the firewall to get the P32 to bolt to it? or did it bolt to the holes that the plastic motor mount was using to hold it to the firewall?

One other thing what size 4S pack are ya running and what kind of run time? I am not an WOT guy and practice good throttle management most of the time

This was the exact curve of the underside of the wing, was grey to start with and the same plastic as the supplied doors on the legs.....

In the UK supplied as Halfords touch up paint set for cars.

Hinges were ready made flap hinges I had in stock from years ago.

Doors are 'sprung' open by a thin piece of elastic through the fuz and the doors pull them shut in the same way as in the picture above of the larger P47 model

All painted with a Sharpie sliver paint pen.

Cost me nothing to do and look real cool.

I now have some spare door sequencers from my eRC B25 as its now a slope soarer.... so may use them to make it even more realistic.

Scoob has truly inspired me to stay the corse, and change the look.. That looks great.

At the LHS I picked up Red,flat black, and silver foam safe, "Testors" paint..I tested out the silver by repairing, and blending the area where the decals were, and the match is perfect! Now that the base coat is fixed I can get creative.

A good Tip: After I use a spray can, I remove the sprayer and flush it in a small cup of lacquer thinner. The next time you use the can it will spray just as good as the first time.

I used Testers "Foam Safe" spray, the same Paint Ill be using on the Tail.. Bright Right.. I wanted them to match, and Im pleasantly surprised how glossy the foam safe paint looks on the cowl.

I just ordered pinup girl decals.. Red head wearing red Leather..
