I´m able to ask my friend. He´s the designer of that P 40. If he´s willing to give the cutting datas, may that will help?

While the videos and the airplanes in them are nice, I think you've missed the true topic of this thread. Your videos are of "Warbirds", this thread is for "Combat" R/C airplanes. The difference being that "Combat" R/C airplanes aren't necessarily Scale Warbirds, but are models that tow a streamer and are flown in a manner as to try to cut the streamer on an opponents aircraft.

I think there are different classes of Aircombat.
Here in Europe the Aircombat Scene is using only the warbirds flown between 1939 and 1945. The ACES Rules of Aircombat allow all birds 1/12 scale of WW II that had more than 500 hp. The limit of weight 1500g max single engined and 1700g for multi engines, the tolerance in size is 95-105% from the original. The engine size between 2,5 and 4 ccm depending on wingarea, electrics analog to that limits.

Hi,

in Mallorca - Spain we have a combat league for nearly ten years now where you dont need to fly scale warbirds to participate

every plane is admitted being .25 glow engines and 1 m max wingspan the only limitations. Electrics have no limitations so far

new meat is always welcome!! so if wanna put some spice to your summer holidays just come around

Dont get me wrong, we'd love to have scale warbirds but are afraid lack of time to build them would eventually turn down the competition. Our Coroplast planes are made in less than 2 hours and cost around 3.5 euros (just the frame)

What we found in the US is that the number of cuts achieved is directly related to the wingspan, which creates an advantage for certain designs and an disadvantage for others when they are all the same 1/12th scale. We changed our rules so that instead of having all the models the same scale factor, they are now all the same SIZE. They are STILL scale, just not all the SAME scale. This resulted in a more level playing field and a greater variety of models being built and used. The change has worked out well and has helped keep our scale event active. We of course have non-scale combat events as well, and they are more popular in number of entries.
