javier....I typically set the timer for 5 minutes of "spirited" flying then bring her down...if I have to make an extra pass or two to land that's not a problem either.

I just completed flight 80 this weekend on my Jug, and when I logged the time, it turned out that I am averaging 6 minute flights overall. I use 2200 mah lipos, and I tend to manage the throttle quite a bit to keep the motor, ESC, and battery from getting too hot here in Texas. I have the alarm on my DX8 set for 6 minutes, and I typically land right around that time.

With that said, I was reminded why I love this plane so much. With flaps and gear down, it lands like a pussy cat. The club field has lowered the mower blades and now taxiing, takeoffs and landings are all easy without nose-overs. While I am really looking forward to the new Corsair, the Jug is still the reigning queen of my squadron.

It's shorter so it allows a bigger or a longer motor to mount with modication to anything. I'd also say urn breakable. Break the firewall before you break this,

Any silicone product will work, DAP, etc., and has the advantage of a good bond that will not pull the foam out when servo is removed. Unlike: CA or Epoxy that will pull out foam when the servo is removed.

I use Beacon Foam-Tac on everything... stick the surfaces together once or pull them apart and let it dry a little, then rebonds like contact cement. Leaves a little time for re positioning too.

I use the power 25 already, and I found no modification was necessary. It just bolts right up, and the prop to cowl spacing is perfect.

Is it lighter than the plastic piece?

So, I lucked out with my rebuilt P47 on Saturday. I had a brain fart and ended up taking off with a waaaaay nose heavy plane. I couldn't get it to climb, even on high rates, unless I maxed the throttle. It was a very short flight. It went over the dike and into the ground at a minimum of 60mph.

Broke the cowl, prop, and a servo arm. I need to reglue a wing tip, and there's a minor scuff on the belly (I wasn't using the included armor plate).

Um... huh?? I expected to find individual foam cells it went in so hard.

Since it went over the crown of the dike as it went in, I never saw the impact. But the down angle must have helped, and it must have gone in wings level.

Any other remarkable crash survival stories on other P47s?
