Hi Chris03,

I'd believe that your great P-40 could climb up vertically by using
3008/16 outrunner. Have a nice maiden !


Hi Smoothb10,

The propeller you used must be the older EP9070x3.

Man that bird looks great, can't wait to hear about your maiden. I have seen your T6. It also looks great. I think your landing gear is for looks, good job. I have been trying to decide how i want to do something like that as well. awesome job Chris.

I'm going to do the same for my own P40 !!!

Hi,
thanks @ all.
No, the gear is imitation only
Here it is very windy at the moment so I build a little on the cockpit.
@chen:
My GWS Dealer has suggested the engine to me. I have tested him with 9x5 3-blade HD and 3s 2200... I think, this is sufficient

greetings from germany

Hi Chris,

Would you take reference with this link, http://www.gwsus.com/english/product/motor/gwblm006.htm
It's a powerful motor, it works better with EP1060x3.

Hi Sebastien,

I think that Ryramz was sharing his good experience with you, he used GWS glue first, then applied CA to hold the EPO pieces in place. CA normally needs moisture to get dried, so he might have not applied GWS glue as a contact glue. I think that his way works better than using only CA on EPO kit.

Well heres my Russian GWS-40 built for the NEAT Fair Mass Warbird Launch. I had mocked this up in Photoshop in this thread back in the Spring, but only finished it recently:

Motor: BP A2814-8
Prop: APC 1070E
ESC: BP 40 amp
Battery: Xcite 3S 3000
Aileron Servos: HS-55
Elevator Servo: HS-65
Receiver: AR6100E

It does about 330 watts; I built it specifically for the mass warbird launch: powerful, heavy for wind penetration and big pack for long duration. She flies great, decent speed, great climb and very well mannered. I got the plane/motor for free so Im flying it like I stole it next weekend! If I have a midair I want it to be spectacular for the crowd.

Thanks Chen,

I did use the GWS glue like contact, I glue the pieces together, then pull them apart , I wait a few seconds then i put the pieces back together. After this is when I will use the CA which is fine for EPO. I use it as a back up to hold the pieces still while the GWS glue fully cures. The good thing about that is I can keep working on the plane without having to wait for glue to dry.

Chris, thanks for posting your maiden pics, very good looking plane. I love your wheels and gear. Dude I am going to climb into your cockpit and fly that thing. Do you know how much your plane weighs? And what motor did you decide on? thanks

jimsky;

How are you balancing that plane? I was wanting to use the B2814-8 from my 190 in my new 40, but even without a spinner it seems like it's going to be way too nose heavy. I thought the 2814-8 was great in the 190 and I would hate to have a 40 that did not perform as well. I was thinking of a BP motor more in the 78 gram range. What spinner are you using? I've got a Great Planes 3" nylon spinner, but it's way too heavy.

Yup I've got a big honkin motor and a huge metal backplated spinner. Without a bit of creativity and foam removal it would be a beast to balance.

I used a large pack (3S 3000, I want good duration) and it's located beneath the "cockpit". It inserts in the regular battery hatch but it "pushes back" all the way to beneath the cockpit. I cut out the stock foam cockpit detailing and installed a 1/64" plywood cover. The battery actually bumps into the elevator servo.
