H-9 Spit or Hobby People BH 91 Spit ???


I already have a Hacker A60-20s that I plan on putting in a Spit.

My question is, which of these two planes should I put it in?

I have researched both planes extensively, and now only need your valued opinios before I pull the trigger.

Please post which one of these two planes you would purchase ................. and your reasoning as to why.

Thanks
Jim

Jim, I know the hanger 9 spit, but I don't understand your shorthand "BH"? It makes comparison impossible.

Here's a google. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...H+91+Spitfire+

Hp Spit

I have been flying the H9 spit for a couple of months now. I use the Hacker A50-14L on an 8cell Thunder power extreme set-up. It is quite fast with the APC 15.75x13 3-bladed prop. All up weight about 12 pounds.

The gear that came with the kit could not take the weight I guess, because they were always bending. I switched to Robart air up/spring down gear with VQ warbirds oleo struts. I will take a picture and post it later.

The BH Models Spit is currently being reviewed for RCGroups and should be posted in the near future.

I just got the BH P-47 and the quality is very nice.

I should prolly get one now then, (while I still can).

I know that the Black Horse Spit is bigger, and wonder if the bigger Hacker A60-20s would be better suited for the bigger plane, (without being weak).

Anyone seen one of these BP Spit in person?

I fly a BH models Spitfire. Other than the landing gear retracting in the wrong direction, it is a nice flying model.

I also fly a Hangar 9 Mustang, which I also really like. The BH Models Spitfire is bigger than the Hangar 9 version.

Another RC Groups member also built and flew one.

Read these threads; they may help you decide.

I have already read both those threads.

That's what got me interested in the BH plane in the first place.

My QUESTION is how will the Hacker A60-20s behave in each plane, and which one would fly best with that motor?

Esprit Models generally recommends the A50 series Hacker motors (which run on 6 series lipos) for the Hangar 9 .60-size warbirds.
http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=5437

I think your A60 needs more lipos, probably 8 to 10 (please double check this on your own).

My BH models Spitfire (.90-size) is powered (maybe overpowered) by 9 lipos, but the plane is big and can easily handle the extra weight of more batteries.

I'll be running 10s lipo, and 12s A123.

I will be getting the BH Spit, (after seeing your climbout on the e-flight 160 - the Hacker I have will rock).

btw - that was one heck of a job you did with yours Michael. I was very impressed.

Thanks.

It's an E-Flite 110. Your Hacker motor on 10s will be "more than adequate".

Hi Jim:
Michael and Al along with several of my fellow reviewers caused me to go with the BH Spitfire. It is a very nice kit. Retracts go the wrong way but most of my friends won't notice and I don't care. Since you read Al's thread and saw Michael's video I don't have much to add except I have a lot of respect for Michael's work as I have seen it posted in the past and you can't beat Al's spirit. I am installing a sound system in mine as you might have quessed. I am taking my time. Review should be up in mid-January if weather cooperates. Best of luck to you with yours. Mike H.

How ironic Mike .......... (This plane will be much better/bigger!).

It is clear how valuable a resource RCG is.

It is so much easier to make a decision when you have others willing to share their experiences ... good or bad.

I think we are both going to love this plane.

You wanna compare notes during the build? ........ shoot me a note Maybe I will do a build thread incorporating what I have learned from others such as Toronto Mike.

Jim
