stock isnt gonna get you much, it needs a bit more power to turn a big enough multiblade prop.

Sorry

Dave

P47's use 4 blade props, not 3...

Use the search function for all of the options on that. It's been discussed on here about every other week at extreme length.

i went with the 2600 mah 30c to get a bit more punch from them. i hope. time will tell. ill report my findings... looks like my maiden p-47 flight is getting rained out! my LZ was soft today and then it rained a bunch tonight. dont want to nose over in the sofl ground with a gorgeous new plane first day out. it has caught me off guard with the t-28 but the tri- gear saved it. bummer. looking forward to seeing her in the air.

Hand launch it.. I do It all the time ! flaps on half.. full power at 30 Deg up and belly land it. Take note it tends to travel a good distance to come to a full stop
Then come to think of it if this is your maidenflight then rather wait....

she is too pretty to belly land! maybe when she is a bit weathered but not on her first day out. it needs to be a proper rolling take off and proper wheel landing. thats just me... put to much time in to do it half way. i can wait.

Patience Jedi.


Had a great flying day today. Three flights on the T-Bolt (also flew four other planes today for a total of 10 flights), and "greased" all three landings!! I couldn't do that again if I tried! Usually it'll float a little then gently "plop" down, or touch one main slightly before the other. Today I came in a bit higher than usual and with full flaps, power off. All three times it was as if the ground came up and gently met the main wheels at the same time with the tail wheel still up. Straight down the runway and very scale looking.

Not bragging, just very pleased and surpirised at the same time. That brings the total to 159 with only one crash (flight 128), which isn't as much as many here, but has the flight record of my fleet. Stryker Q is setting at 127 with one crash (quite some time ago). My Slow Stick has over 200+ but has had at least 4 crashes, including a mid-air today only shifted my right main landing gear. But my buddy has about a 6x6 square inch area missing from the right end of his yellow SS wing. We both continued to fly for another 2 minutes then landed. I had yellow paint and a piece of foam on my prop!! LOL

Next purchase...

Rookie flyer here but this is my next bird. I've learned on a Super Cub, bought an F27Q (crashed it first time and am comfortable with it now). I also bought a Yak 54 Carbon-Z that I have yet to maiden (scared to fly it after a disaster with my Extra 300).

Is there anything I should know about this beast? I think I'm going to do the full house assembly. Flaps, retracts, probably a 4 blade prop. I LOVE the way this plane looks.

Anyone want to sell me a DX8 or one of these, cheap? LOL!

To save some $, buy the replacement airframe, and add your own electronics.

Unfortunatly my jug is in sick bay. It had a chance meeting with a fence. New cowl, motor, esc.... Well the esc survived the crash, but it won't survive the turnigy G25 which I am putting back on it. If it isn't fast it isn't worth it. I was curious if anyone had put the 610kv motor, and if so what amp draw did you get with what props? My next purchase will be an amp meter. I think that I may got with the hobby lobby 4 blade or an APC four blade. I want the looks and speed. My wildcat with the power 15 is a man guided missile. Any thoughts..... Me and the kitty are going to attempt some flights today. Weather isn't the greatest, but oh well.
