+1 for me.

I have more than 10 flights so far (changed the retracts units), both on 6s and 8s. Installed and test flew with Benedini soundsystem today, editing now

Yes, and those were the ones that inspired me to try this myself

The wiring is very easy, choosing the right speakers is harder....at least for me. I think the system has bigger potential than what I get from it right now.

Will try playing with different sounds tonight.

Greetings all,

Wow, what a plane! BIG, and super scale! I can't stop drooling

I searched the thread and saw a tiny bit of hypothetical talk about the possibilities of putting a nitro engine in there. To those who own this, what are your thoughts about that? Is the motor firewall sturdy enough to handle a nitro engine (maybe with some ply + fiberglass reinforcement and fuelproofiling)? Is there enough room for an engine inside the cowl? Is there enough for a fuel tank in the battery bay? Is the brushless + battery weight close enough to engine + fuel weight? Any input would be greatly appreciated

I thought the problem with nitro is that it eats the foam away...

IC motor - just for grins (?)...

Yeah, I threw that one out there and here is some general views I have about installing a glow ign. motor in one of these:

Since alcohol is the main fuel ingredient, the foam would be impervious to that but as to nitro content and oil, they may be a longer term hitch in the works and some testing would need to be done on an epo sample for unwanted reactions. In any case, a fuel proof coating would need to be applied in most areas around the motor and with epo, it's shown to not take coatings well at all.

Getting a mount system for the motor would require that the loads be spread out over as large an area as possible. Just a firewall mounting, say with epoxy, won't take the power pulses for long without breaking loose and a nose over would probably pop the whole thing loose. The mount system would by necessity need to extend forward from the actual firewall location, past the motor mounts and glued to the insides of the fuselage going to the nose. Material could be a composite of wood with rigid sheet fiber-glass spreading the loads.

An automotive silicone sealer may be usable the fix the whole thing together to the epo as it would spread out shock and loads. It would all be experimental. I've certainly not tried any of this but in practice I sort of know my way around the materials and what they can do.

As for weights and such, I'm sure that would be relatively straight forward to work out and there's probably plenty of room to work with for components.

Bear in mind Commando, I don't have one of these great looking P-40s as yet as they're not imported to the U.S. due to shipping regs.

Thanks for your detailed response, gnats. So you mean these are neither available, nor importable in the states? Ah, what a buzzkill! Guess we'll have to wait. At least that's good news for my wallet.
