Kyosho PT-19 done


I just put the finishing touches on my PT-19 today. Got the windshields on and the faux landing gear strut covers + a little touch up paint here and there. I still don't know the purpose of the mast between the cockpits, but its on there. One of these days I will have to get an answer on that. I am pleased with the way it turned out. It flies very scale on 4s and with good power on 5s.
It looks like the winds are going to finally calm down a bit this next weekend so I hope to get a few more flights on it then.
I hope someone will bring their video camera so I can get some footage.

PT-19 Mast


One of the government requirements for a training aircraft was this structure to be designed as part of the fuselage to protect the pilots in the case of a flip over. You will find this on most all USAAF/USN training aircraft. An exception is the Stearman or N3N which has the upper wing center section strengthened for this situation.

I am restoring a Kyosho PT-19 that I recently purchased off of craigslist. Can you tell me where the CG is supposed to be?

Thanks!

Mark
