I did that on my 1200mm Dynam's razorback with a 1400mm's 4 blade prop.

She looks and flies great

Did you change anything else to fly with the larger prop, Tartago?

I changed the ESC from 45 to 60A just in case (current draw was around 40A static)

After more than 50 flights the motor started to work very hot, thus I changed the stock Detrum by a FMS type sold by HK.

Still going strong. Check my blog.

Yes, I agree with you there. I think the Sea Fury is the poor cousin of this group release. Looks like the budget model compared to the other two. Still, it is very nice. If my meeting goes well today I'm going to get one from Aliexpress. I will coat the nose with foam armour and see if I can over come that foamy look.
The is one twin I would like to see and that is the Me 410. It is a really nice looking plane and at 1600mm it would go real well with the P38. However I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Don't shoot me how about a 450 Model "B" Ag-Cat. At lest a 1400mm wing span, using 3000 4S batteries.
If not that I will go with the above, a Wildcat bigger the better, heck I would even go with a bellie lander if the give us a launch point. Failing that a realistic Stearman most of the ones now on the market have major flaws like sweep wings and so on.

I like the Me 410 idea, but if they wanted to do another big (1600+) wingspan twin, then the Heinkel He 219 Owl is a rather sexy prospective candidate......if they could do the undercarriage justice.

On another note...Eric 'Winkle' Brown's death was just announced on Radio 2 (BBC) ....quite possibly the greatest pilot this country ever produced, certainly the most experienced; his book about test flying the German aircraft during and after WWII is a must read. And he was the first to land a jet on an Aircraft carrier; And he was a very nice guy to chat to, too . RIP Eric. Thanks. Blue Skies Old Boy.

Sad news indeed re: Eric Brown. Read his memoirs last year, quite an amazing career!

He apparently had about 470 different aircraft types in his logbook, more than any other pilot so far, and I suspect, more than any other pilot ever will. You were very lucky to get to chat with him! Very interesting documentary on TV about him last year.

Okay, looks to me you're on the right track.

But after that I need to see a few WWI planes, the hole foamy industry has abandoned this era of flight! (except dynams Albatros)


Any size is welcome!
