Mate, impressive! Great video - started to get "Apolocalypse Now" flashbacks almost immediately...

I've seen your AC47 on other C47 threads. What's your CofG set at? Lots of different opinions on this. Yours flies like a champion, so keen to get your input.

Cheers,

good movies, its hard to film a small plane and keep it in the view finder, great job, wish I could land like that, I land in grass i keep mowed about 6 inch's high so that there is a good cushion for my controled crashs with a corsair landing's

There was a lot of talk about CG. The manual make it look like 50-55 from the back of the engine cowling which would make it 75 from the LE. I tried that at first but it was way too tail heavy. Almost uncontrollable. I bought the new kokam battery pack and that brought the cg to 57mm from the LE which I think is the correct area. GWS diagram doesn't show very will what they are measuring from but going from the cowling makes no sense. You always measure from the LE as far as I have ever seen. That landing was my worse one of the day, but it worked out better for the filming. The engine sounds are actual DC-3 wav files that I downloaded. This was my first attempt at using a airgun....

Mate, thanks for the hot tip. I am steering towards the 55-57mm mark myself. I am using an ETEC 2S2P 1200 "brick" in the front, with some mods to the battery comparment. With the VarioProps and a beefier UC, that gets me to about 65mm without any ballast, so achieving 55 or thereabouts shouldn't be a challenge.

Great vid. Loved the fly-by sounds of the big Dakka - added to the atmosphere. Great plane, great vid, great landing.

Thanks,
Mick
