Here is a link to some cool products including servo slow downs and reversers and various lighting packages including led gun lights.

ok so i bought the spare airframe kit p-47. i already had all the other parts to get this plane in the air so i opted for the short kit.
no flaps and no retracts for now. maybe later...
i got the p-47 just about ready for the maiden.
i did some prop tests and this is what i came up with.

im using an Exceed proton 40amp ESC. http://www.hobbypartz.com/07e05-proton-40a.html
a sunnyksky motor form EPBuddy. http://epbuddy.com/index.php?main_pa...roducts_id=191
its the 2814 1000kv motor (3536 equivalent)
3s 2200 25c parkzone lipo (well used)

...............MAS 10x7e = 27amps 315 watts
...............MAS 11x7e = 35amps 400 watts
...............MAS 12x6e = 37amps 425 watts
Dynam T-28 11x7x3 = 29amps 340 watts. This prop seems to run the quietest and smoothest on the ground test but the p-47 does look funny with a blade on her.

i did have to modify the firewall to get my motor far enough foreward to get the prop shaft to stick out the front of the cowl.

hopefully tomorrow ill be maidening this bird.

I suggest you just forget the stock prop, and go directly to the extra300 props, and the power 25 motor.
+1 also. That prop wakes up the stock motor and P-15 too.

I was lucky enough to get some killer video today with the "one trick jug", Thanks to my friend Larry at HAMMS.

The weather was perfect, and Larry did such a great job filming it, that I'll be able to post it in one clip! From take off, until landing with no edits!

I'm processing it now, and Will have it up as soon as possible.

Beautiful. Nice work, Ducati! Managed to get that flight in just before the storm, eh? Impressive flying and nice landing, too.

Love the jug. Repainted mine (pics on this forum somewhere) and just added a power 25 motor and the HL 11x10x4 prop. Looks/flys amazing.

Nice to see someone other than me flies their p-47 like a Yak. Be sure to keep an eye on that Horizontal stab though, if you don't reinforce it a bit after a few 50 or so flights you will start to notice some stress cracks appearing as was the case for me.

i got my P-47 flown today. its flys nice.
i first tried the 10x7 prop and it flew fine but not a speed demon.
i then tried the 3 blade dynam 11x7x3 prop and it flew faster but not a huge upgrade.
last i tried the 11x7 and now it flies with authority and it has unlimited verticle.
i never did try the 12x6.
ill probably just fly the 11x7 from now on. im happy with the power and amp draw.
all of the flights where on 3s 2200 25c lipos.

Thanks! The calm before the storm is always the best time to fly! It was a beautiful night.

I tried a four blade, but the apc 12x6 performs much better, for this style of flying.

Thanks again for the kind words! I love this stuff..

Thank you! She's a keeper, and a real crowd pleaser!

I CA'ed the vertical stab tub in, and made sure to CA the reinforcement "buttons" that the tub runs threw. I also hot glued the stabs into the plastic mount.

I hope thats enough, but I have said that "I won't be Surprised when the elevator breaks off!"

Did some bench test today. I changed the timing on my Eflite 60 pro Esc to High 25 degrees and here are the results:
Timing set to default 15 degrees on Eflite P-15 with extra 300 prop and 60amp Pro esc on 2250 TP 3s 45c. Peak C 31.49-- Volts 11.89-- Peak W 352.16 -- Energy .991wh-- Charge .089ah

Timing changed to 25 degrees Peak C 34.04--Volts 11.83-- Peak W 378.7w--Energy 1.09--Charge .099ah ESC not noticeable change in temp.

Now I just need to test fly it with the High timing.
