Congrats. I've been grounded for three weeks due to weather. This weekend looks like both days will be nice for flying; I can't wait! My Jug looks so sad sitting there without wing beneath its wings.

are those just simply large screws that are holding your JUG on the wall?

Re-hinging control surfaces?


Hi there ,
Have anyone seen the need for installing real hinges on the control surfaces on this one? For my FMS P51 i saw a lot of people had done it so I went ahead and did it,
but the foam hinges on the PZ P47 seems a bit stronger.
Is it necessary?

Going to try this one on 4s , replaced the ESC already to a 65 A and planning to run on 3 S as well as 4S with stock motor and 10x10 APC E 2 blader , mabe some smaller prop on 4S.

Anyone tried running the stock motor on 4 cell - results?

I haven't seen any cracking on my Jug's control surface hinges in over a year and 100+ flights.

I see no need to replace hinges on the Jug unless you have an accident that separates the control surfaces.

Any amp draw data with the the stock motor and 4s lipos. My PZ 15 w/stock prop=28amps/325 watts. 10.5x9 e-flite=34amps/400 watts. This is static burst current/power.

Thanks
