They are already done and glued in place. I recessed them using scratch built internal boxes. The planes opening is 1", so using 3/4" elbows worked well.

Ive since added the german markings and a few other things. Will get a pic soon.

I love the info about the gun cover and the repaint. I have some builds to do this winter but I still have a Laser 300v that needs a home and with the access the gun cover gives it moves this plane up in my choices. I'd love to use that space for access.

Thanks and congrats !

Joe
A laser 300v would fit this plane well ad would sound awesome.

The 21x14 prop im using is way more prop then needed to fly. The pitch makes the plane rocket Will try the 23x12 next time out.

Great looking conversion. Im working on the same 190... but will be using the da 60. Im gathering the cg of 155mm is good to go as a starting point as stated in manual? Again..beautiful plane.
Thanks,
Gas n Go

Yeah, 155mm works fine. I think Im going to move it up a bit just to get the plane to plant on the wheels on landing instead of wanting to continue flying.

Adding the cockpit and pilot required compensating for that up front with about 9oz of lead. Odd since the cockpit/pilot isnt that far behind the CG, but........oh well.

Well.....got lucky at Warbirds over the Rockies event this past weekend.

A vendor was clearance selling an ESM Dornier-335 because they didnt want to lug it back to Canada from the event here in Colorado.

I got it for less then even the best place on the net VQwarbirds...who lists it at 579. My special grab it up price? $480 and I didnt even have to pony up shipping which would have been another $150. On top of this I also got the electric retracts as part of the whole deal.

I'll start a new thread on it, but Ive already ordered another rimfire 65cc motor for the front and will use something a bit smaller at the tail. A DO-335 is an inline twin motor setup.

Nope....a rimfire 65cc up front just like my Dora9 and then will have a power 60 at the tail. Plane seems to need a lot of nose weight, so using a big 65cc rimfire and 12s 8000 up front and a smaller 60 size motor in the back on only 6s should help with NOT having to add dead lead. The battery for the tail motor can still be positioned forward of the CG. I can also use a mix and turn that motor off if I want.

With the 65cc motor you could run a drive shaft to the rear, And spin both props!

SURE...but the weight to set that up reliably would add probably 3 pounds just by itself....and....wouldnt quite be scale

Got another flight on the Dora. This time used full flaps on the landing even though there was a decent head wind. The plane settled on the mains a lot better and there was no nasty bounce.
I had also added another 6oz of dead weight in the cowl(6oz of lead) to bring the CG a bit forward of the manual's suggested location(which is fine in the air, but not that great for landing).
