I think it's too much torque. When I test it the first time I tried to gain speed gradually during take off but it always turn to the left, the second time same thing happened, so I pulled the motor out push it more to the right and a bit down to adjust my thrust angle and got better result.

Are you using the stock motor? The reason I ask is I noticed my P-40 does the same thing on take off, wants to pull left. At first I thought it was the tail wheel so I checked alignment and even bent in a little right turn. That helped a little along with almost full right rudder on take off it would stay straight enough until I got in the air.

Same here. I was using a GWS 3-blade prop on mine and it really wanted to go left on takeoff. Had to feed in lots of right rudder to keep her tracking straight until airborne.

I think that it is all of the above mentioned things. Torque along with the tail wheel assembly. Are you able to lessen the rudder input as the plane picks up speed or do you hold your input constant untill you are in the air?

Nope, I'm using this kind of motor http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idproduct=4916

Same thing happened to my brother in law's plane, it tends to go to the left as shown in the video above. But now everything works well, I'll try to post video again coz the take off right now is very controllable. Btw I didn't use any of the stock wheel and wires, I use P38 wheel from phase 3 for the front and dubro for the tail, the dubro has great ground control, I also did the same thing with my FW 190 for the tail wheel.

ryamZ,

As soon as the tailwheel leaves the ground, you can lessen rudder input.

Thanks for the advice guys, my new one is ready for paint very excited, i haven't been able to fly my p40 that is in the video because i broke my motor mount it was the eflite type that is no longer manufactured, so i'm grounded on that one until i find time to do serious modification {ie} add firewall..unfortunately i drilled out the lower stick position to allow air flow around my esc so i can't use the gws motor mount like i am on my new one,
BUMMER, good thing is my new one is almost ready..been flying my gws t6 a lot, also the PT 17 except i have taken off the top wing and fly it like a PT 19, i miss my P 40..

Mine is louder now too with the "modded" cowl! Same Dubro spinner. I have two new cowls but haven't taken the time to paint them yet. Nice vid. My P-40 is probably my favorite flyer right now.

Regards,
Alan

My P 40 is my only flyer right now, my T6 had a fatal crash yesterday i was in an inverted loop and half my wing flew off. Foam shrapnel everywhere. EPO T6 on the way. Anyhow having lots of fun flying my P 40 again after finding the mount I needed.

I asked this question a while back but got no answers. What is an appropriate sized stearable tailwheel assembly that is suitable for use on a GWS 40?

cyano + EPO = OK???

Hello!
Iwould like to know if it's possible to glue the EPO P40 (or T6/FW190) with cyano (instead of GWS glue) ???

I use ca on my epo and it works just fine. i also use the gws glue at first to glue things together and then the ca to hold it in place.

here is my russian p40 flys great. I made mine nice and light with an 860 mah 3 cell flys for 7 min. It flys better with a standard gws 3 blade prop instead of the one the kit came with.

hallo together,
I would like to introduce my Warhawk of GWS to you with pleasure.
I have selected to me the model flying tiger. The model weighs approx. 690gr.
I have hardened the surface with parquet varnish and silk paper
As an impulse I use a GWS 3008/16 with 2200 3s zippy's and HXT Servo's.
The cockpit must be still built, then follows maiden
Once again I am very contented with the quality of GWS and surprises how simply build his is able
I hope, she likes you

Greetings from germany
