I can wait... I really appreciate the help from you and Cat.Mike. My P47 came with a brand new Super Tiger 90 motor. Would you or Capt. Mike have a use for it. I would not mind at all sending it to either of you in return.

Thanks very much for the offer but I'm not one for anything but electric... Put it on eBay and make it an even better deal for yourself.

I am with Gree about the engine. Every plane I have with the exception on one is electric. The one gas plane I have hasn't been flown since I bouthg it.
Gree. I am going to take my plans for the 47 down to Staples tomorrow and scan them for NC. Then I will send them as electronic copies. He can print them as needed for whatever he needs to repair

Hi NCRealEstateGuy,

Since neither Gree or CapMike are interested.....I am a "glow" guy, so please PM me with some pics of the engine and what you want for it. Not sure if I need another one, but you have my curiosity. May work well in my P47 when I finally get to building it.

Marko

Here is a link to my new "build" thread for those who are interested. It is a TF P47 razorback. Converting it from nitro to electric. Going to glass it.

Hey Gree,
What retracts are you using in yours?
How much did your glassing add?
I am busy repairing, puttying, and sanding. Thinking of putting in a sound system too.

I have a complete parts list of the retracts etc on the front page. That should help you out. In terms of weight, I don't know as I have never weighed anything. All I know I that countless people have glassed this plane and it flies fine, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I am getting closer to starting on mine again. Just finishing my latest FPV plane first.

Thanks for the response. I had someone on my thread warning me to be careful about glassing this plane. I feel better now.

HMMM., I can not find anything on the first page regarding what retracts you are using. I did an attachment search and found pics of the retracts, but no mention of make and model...

Sorry I should have been more specific. It is the very first picture in the first post. It is a screenshot of my shopping list for the retracts. All the info is in the pic.

Gree is using the Robart air retracts. Although these are excellent units, there are some new electric versions available from Robart, Eflite and LADO that can save you the hassles and pain that usually come with doing an air system. All are drop in fit for the P-47. Something to consider.

If you're set on Robert air retracts, I have some in my Top Flite P-51 that I'll give you for a good deal. PM me if you're interested.

This plane came with the old Robart air retracts and I yanked them out. I do want to get electric. Thanks RCWings for the push in the right direction. Denial, Thanks, but like I said, I will be going electric.

In case you are interested....here is the Eflite that fit the P-47.
