Yes. Finally someone pops that question. Is there ANY Hayate with flaps around? Now, I really do not have the money right now, but if I found a Ki-84 with those beautiful butterfly flaps on I would sell ... something, to get it.

my post maiden video


I am so excited about my recently finished 40e I just have to share this here. Hyperion has done a great job, and the build and weathering advice here in RC Groups have been great. Thanks all.

Cheers,
Rudy

Thanks for all the advice...here's my video


Thanks for watching.
You can check out other videos I've taken at my local club on Youtube as well. Just search for either faab2009 or hkmec.

Thanks Rudy


Hyperion/Dave - please don't give up on those glass 40-sized birds you're working on...p40, mustang, whatever. Very popular out here. (although it would be wonderful if you could throw in a few more simple details like exhausts, dummy radials where appropropriate, etc.. that'd be great...)

Thanks for posting this - look forward to putting those birds up in the air again!

Next up from NipponDave and the folks at Hyperion is the FW-190 25e followed by the P-40 25e, but then they are working on Stuka 40e and the P-51 40e, so they are in developement. Mid May, along with the FW-190, they will be releasing a (non-warbird) Wolf Samson II 70e bipe for those interested.

Leo,
I can't wait to do the 6-warbirds sortie again, and will have to get that on video this time. Got to get some new lipos quickly though. My old ones just died on me.

You bet, Leo. We've been steadily increasing the scale content with each release, as keen observers have noted... Wait till you see the Stuka... Btw, the Stuka will be wood fuselage, to help keep weight down and because the Stuka shape can be done very well in wood and that allows a printed covering. But it has a lot of glass parts, such as the landing gear, cannon (it's a G2 version), etc...

David

PS: I've been flying a "near final" prototype this week, and am really happy with the performance. No bad habits at all (a relief, after reading about some other Stuka models), and a real floater on landing. Slows down nicely even without flaps. Flap testing (for efficacy and elevator mix required per angle) this week if weather is good...

Awesome, what is the ETA of the Stuka? Will it use the same power system as the Hayate?

Thanks,
Scott.

We're about 99% sure that it won't. Our new ZS3025 series is much more powerful than the average motor in the same class, and will allow us to save both weight and cost-to-user when installed in the Stuka (compared to a 4020 motor). Even with a 10x7 prop and only 32A peak on 3S, the Stuka flies strongly on the ZS3025-08 (i.e. "more power than scale") and I'll start propping up next week to about 45A~50A peak to see how the vertical goes. I'm guessing it will be very good, with big, round loops and 40-degrees or better fast climbs... And the motor could handle 70A peak with good efficiency averages, so there won't be a deficit of power no matter your preferences, I think.

No promises on ETA. But I "hope" (repeat, "hope") it will be on shelves in about 5 months.

P51 40e will use Z4020 or ZS4020, like Hayate 40e. Those were very fast airplanes in their day (unlike the pokey Stuka) and the 4020 gives big headroom for insane speed setups...


Cheers,

David

Even better... I'm quite happy with my Hayate 40 on the recommended power system and I've always wanted a Stuka. A cheaper power solution is even better since most people have plenty of 3 cell's laying around.

I'm looking forward to it.
Scott.
