Here is my FW190. She has approximately 40 flights. I had a real problem seeing the blue/gray factory paint against the blue sky. After several close calls; I finally lost her and broke the tail at the panel lines in front of the stabilizer.

I decided white might show up better, so I did a quick repaint with H20 and black painters chalk mixed with white acrylic.

I have enjoyed the FW190 and hope GWS will release something new for us by Christmas.

Looks like you used screws to secure the cowling - care to elaborate on that? I am about to do the same, as I had my cowl get pushed into the prop with bad results.

I had similar problems.

I discarded the black button for the cowl and the black receivers glued on the fusealage. Cut 3/8 inch hard balsa squares to replace the black receivers. Glued them on with foam CA. Used servo screws to attach cowl through the existing holes in the plastic cowl. Removed screws and put a drop of thin CA in the screw holes in the balsa squares so they will stay tight.

Have about 10 flights so far with no cowl problems.

For the FW190 your best with a 10x6 to 10x7 prop. My Hyperion 3007 1050kv is happy spinning a GWS 10x8 HD prop not sure if the turnigy will be.

also if you run a differant brand of prop that can make all the differance in the world.. there is a major differance in my opinion between an apc electric prop and a gws hd prop..

It sounds like your motor may be a bit on the lower end of power for this size plane.

You might try the APC slow prop 10 x 4.7 to keep the amps down for your motor.

Good luck,
Kevin.

i agree with rcdad, the motor may be small, also dosent weigh much , adding to your tail heavy problem. imo i would not go less than 4.7 pitch with 1100 kv because your pitch speed will be to low. i use that same 10x4.7 apc sf on a pattern ship, and at 200 watts i get 8000 rpm ( 35 mph pitch speed). the fw190 at close to 2 lbs needs to fly on the faster side. you may have to go down to the 9x6 or 9x7.5 to get the needed pitch speed . just be sure to check your amp draw as sf props draw more amps than you might think. ( more than the same size apc e prop)
