VQ P-40 Warhawk “Wild Bill Kelso” 1941 Movie


I purchased this VQ P-40 Warhawk ARF a few years ago and finally got around to building it. Powered by a Dualsky XM5050EA-8 and a Dualsky 80amp ESC. Electric retracts from FMS. The pilot was scanned from a gear shift knob and 3D printed by a club member. Decals from Callie Graphics. I will be going with a 5 cell setup for the maiden based on the info from Jerry Festa’s review and build in 2016 here on rcgroups. I just need some good weather for a maiden! Sayonara Suckers!

Looks great! Let me know when you think you'll maiden it... I'd love to see it fly.

Where do you fly? - Which field/park/club? I'm in Chicago too and have a few planes to bring along.

I fly out at Checkerboard Filed (AKA: Miller Meadows) Maywood / Forest Park.
I might maiden it this weekend, but I need to verify my CG with some new 5 cell batteries I just picked up.
I will keep you posted.

Cool. Looks like I have Boy Scouts plans Saturday. Sunday looks like rain. So maybe another time I'll come check out the field.
