I'm useing a TP 2100mah 3cell 15c lipo, 2x25a speed controls(GWS). I always use throttle management...even in the wind...especially in the wind . Although I love to see my warbirds rip across the sky WOT, I usually fly almost WOT into the wind and then less than half with a tail wind. Also, I tend to enjoy just watching my birds gracefully make turns and such. Not really doing much in the way of acrobatics just the occasional loop or roll and I'm satisfied. That is not to say that I cant do acro, I can, I just like to relax and fly more often than not...Know what I mean. Oh and yeah...I guess I kinda push it as well .

GWS Ray, GWS4CEO or any GWS rep, I need new P-38 cowls and nose cone as they pretty much are heat deformed simply by being on the plane which was sitting on the ground for two hours.

Anyone else out there able to make some that are not prone to "melting"?

I live in a tropical zone where midday temperatures are above 85 Deg F and I have to be carefull not to leave any of my GWS models in direct sunlight. Its not only the cowlings and nose cones that distort but also the clear canopies.

I'd love to see pictures of this... I live in Oklahoma, where 100+ degree Farenheit temperatures are not uncommon in the summer months (June, July, August). Last year, I think we only had three days UNDER 100 degrees Farenheit (high temp) all summer!

Anyway, my point is, I've never seen any GWS plastic distort in our temperatures here... I've taken GWS airplanes I've built to AMA-field "Fly In" events, and left them in the sun all day long -- with no poor effects.

I guess I'm just surprised that Darwin and Colorado are so different than Oklahoma...

I've had a GWS Corsair cowl literally collapse from being soften by the sun here in California. I park my birds in the shade during the summer.

My AT-6 cowling distorted last weekend where I had painted it black. Temp was around 95 that morning, but the direct sunlight probably assisted in the distortion. We typically have 100+ days all summer long (in fact, we've already had 3 weeks of 100+ so far, expecting 107 today ), so I try and make it a point to keep my planes in the shade as much as possible, no matter what material they're made from.

I've not had any canopies melt yet though.
