Hangar9 P-47 Thunderbolt


Good morning guys!

Sharing my latest acquisition from Miami, Florida! Visited family and brought my last remaining New-In-The-Box E-Flite Hawker Hurricane 25e and Traded with a super nice gentleman in Miami, Florida for this beauty (Hangar9 P-47 Thunderbolt).

Oh, in case you missed it, it is next to my Park Zone P-47 Thunderbolt!

What kind of motor/engine will you put in there ?
No need for flaps on this large Warbird as it has much more wing Cord and thus wing area than my Hangar9 F4U-1D .50 size Corsair!

This Hangar9 P-47 Thunderbolt is slightly larger than my .50 size Hangar9 Corsair so, it will float even better without flaps.

Oh, it has functional Mechanical Retracts already installed along with all servos for control surfaces.

Thanks for posting!

I was thinking more like an E-Flite Power 60 with just 8 Cells?

I like Scale Flight and don't like over powering my models.

What was your Prop RPMs, AMP, and WATTs using the Power 90?

17 x 8 prop it is pulling 50.2 amps at 1342 watts. weight is 9 lbs 8.7 oz. Here is a video of a flight
Hangar 9 P-47 .60 Electric COnversions mk2 (3 min 16 sec)
. Also making a hatch in this was easy.

Got up in very little Runway run....good power system selection.

I am going with the Power 60 and 6-Cells, 4400mAH, 40C discharge, Lithium Polymer to keep the model as light as possible and swinging the APC "E" 15 X 10 will yield almost 70-MPH and 11 lbs. of static thrust at near 50-AMPs.

The Power 60 is 3oz. lighter than the Power 90 and the Cell count and capacity difference is 9 oz. lighter for a grand total of 12+oz. lighter setup.
