Hi All,

Here is a few photos of my Hangar 9 P-40 arf that I converted to electric. Specs are as follows:

Motor PJS 3D 5000
Prop APC 17 x 8
Spinner CB Associates 3 1/2"
Controller MGM 90 amp Z-Series
Batteries Tanic 3S 3650mah + 4S 3650 mah in series Receiver Futaba PCM
Servos Hitec HS 635HD
Servo (Retract) Hitec HS 75BB
Radio Battery 1600 Mah 6v Ni-cad
Switch MPI HD W/LEDs


6223

6224

6225

The pilots was painted by my bride of 32 years. She thinks that he is ugly...I think he looks great!

I now have two flights on this P-40 and most flying is done at 1/2 throttle. It has plenty of power, flies great and the take-offs & landings are a breeze!

Mike, alas mine isn't. But good news is it's being reborn. I decided to clean up her looks this time. No control rods/servo arms/or control horns sticking out. I just completed the tail feathers. See, nice and clean, and the rudder connector is it, view wise. Everything else is neatly tucked inside.

Next up are the ailerons. Will be installing torque rods in place of the dual servo set up in the wings.

Then onto the gear, going to revamp the wire legs to look like struts.

Going with the flip top hinged canopy like the original had, and the removeable pilot will hide the kill switch.

She was a sweet flyer, and that APC prop growled at low speed and wailed at high, in the air.
