Thunder Tiger F8F Bearcat 1/12


Hi fooks

this was my second plane and it flew very well, but sadly my flying skills weren't that good in beginning so I crashed a couple of times.
Also flying to the limit is something you can do but be aware of wind.....

After my last major crash I put it in the garage and last week I started to rebuild this plane.
I glued wing to fuselage because my front was completely damaged.
Also I cut of cockpit in order to get inside fuselage to assembly servo, rcvr and access to LIPO, esc area.
Also I use an elevator part (yellow) from my crashed P51D ArtTech Mustang, this plane was ready for the trash so I trow it away.

I use an 3536-910KV motor no brand ECS 30A and a 3S2200 LIPO.
Prop is 10E7 and last Sunday (30-11-2011) I performed a first test flight.
I had to adjust my elevator and ailerons and noticed that motor had to be adjusted to give more down and side trust (right).
Also I moved aileron servos into wing to have a direct control of these.

So tonight I painted my Bearcat in a new color layout and will do some fine tuning.

Today 1 november 2011 finished my rebuild see pics below.

Also I have to make me a new cowl and than I will see how it ends...
