What would be a better overall motor for the bolt, an Eflite p-25 870kv or 1250kv?. My friend Tom put in the 870 as a direct drop in and it flies very well. I have a P-15 on hand but I'm sure it won't be much of an upgrade over my stocker. Thanks for any advice.

Our runway is 400 ft long. I usually put jug in the middle, taxi to appropriate end, and roll for 200-300 ft, slowly advancing the throttle. I really like these scale take offs and landings.

Wow 300' For take off. That is mora like a underpower scale. I think 300' is just what need the real thing

That's probably too much, but I like to go down the runway, at speed just a bit less than take off. It looks good.

Our club runway is 1000', so with the pilot stations in the middle, it is really hard to see the planes get all the way down to one end. We normally launch about 30-50' from one side of the pilot stations and use the remaining 500' as our takeoff runway. With that said, I've taken off in as short as 50', but typically for safety, I go out to about 75' to 100'. I like to build some speed before pulling back on the elevator and climbing out. Part of the fun for me is in making a nice and straight takeoff roll, managing the rudder and keeping the tail up while building up speed. It's a rush when it lifts off the ground nicely and I can safely pull the gear up as I climb out.

The PZ P-47 is a great plane. It sits atop my list of favorite planes.

I totally agree with Scoobie and Edge, I love seeing a trail dragger get straight and zoom down the runway a stretch before lifting off... Our club runway is 600 Ft and when I screw up I lift off in 30 Ft Landings are very cool done the same way, not uncommon to ease down and roll out 100 FT after coming in a little HOT

I too agree with all three of you gents-a longer take off and roll out looks and feels good!

The British summer has (no doubt fleetingly!) returned in the last few days, so I had another three lovely flights with mine today. It's bone stock apart from the Eflite retracts and a separete SBEC, but flies beautifully - I know some of you speed demons like to get lots of extra watts in there, but I think the Jug is perfectly powered for scale flying. Just brilliant!
