FMS 1400mm FW-190 Owners Thread
So here it is. The purpose of this thread is for owners to share and exchange experiences in a polite and constructive manner.
This is also to serve the purpose for new or aspiring owners of this plane to not have to wade through 40+ pages of bickering and what not to find any relevant information.
For those of you who would be interested, StudioRS was kind enough to work up some FMS Owners Club gear for us.
If you would like a T-Shirt, Hoodie, Coffee Mug or any other item of the nature, please check out the link. Lots of good stuff there.
There is lots of other stuff there so make sure you check it out.
So please, come in, enjoy, share, have fun and be nice to each other please.

Maiden & Final Thoughts
Here is the maiden flight of mine.
I am going to split this section into Final Thoughts and an area for Things to Note.
My final thoughts are simple, I love it. Its still pretty new to me so I have to let a little more of the new wear off before being completely biased in my assessment.
Things To Note.
1) Check the tow on the landing gear. Be sure to tighten the grub screw just above the wheel and maybe use some loctite to ensure it doesn't back out over time. Refer to my video on the Tear Down and Rebuild of the landing gear.
2) So far any 6 channel DSM2 RX from Spektrum has been unable to actuate the retractable landing gear. If you plan to or have purchased this plane, please use a 7 channel DSM2 or a DSMX RX for this plane. FMS is aware of the issue and hope to hear of a resolution on thier end soon.
3) Check the collar on the back of the motor. Dambit had his come off in flight which really messed up his plane. Caught it on fire. So please check that collar and loctite the grub screw on that.
