Hopefully the next pics will have gear doors. I'm making some out of .020 aluminum. TW

That always seems to be the finishing touch on these warbirds.

If you change the prop to a 14x9 3 blade, you could gain a few miles per hour.

I was running my Kyosho Fw-190 on 5s 5000 using a 13x8x3 with a 580kv motor. Speed was around 75 mph...so pretty decent.
I have the H&M Corsair running a 600kv motor on 5s spinning a 14x10 2 blade. Much faster then the Kyosho 190.
Shes the fastest WWII plane at the field usually....that is of course until I bring out the Graupner FW-190 D9 sporting an 8s 5000 295kv motor spinning a 15x13 prop.
Shes flying over 100+mph full throttle.

Thanks,K.
Maybe if I break a prop. The 15" looks great and I'm happy with it for now. TW

Well, she's just the same as everyone else's but I have to say that I'm greatly enjoying my little Parkzone Spitfire MkIX. First model that I've flown with electric retracts too, and I'm impressed with their operation.

Got several great flights in on the Me-163 at the Ace in the Hole event in Vegas, Oct 7-9.
I think all the pics are from hillbillie except for the landing pic.

Yep, punch her off. I have it on two standard aerfoam bungees, each pulling 30 lbs.
