Default 2nd foamie p47 razorback assembled and ready to go!

well i got a rainy day and spent an hour+ in the shop putting together the p47 i bought for $35 from scubajonny37. i was going to wait for a brushless motor to show up...buttttt,got board and went ahead and glued it together.

every thing fit together perfectly and trimmed out very quickly. i used the brushed motor it came with and to my surprise it has power enough to lift the plane out of my hands when holding it vertical. not going to be unlimited vertical ,but I've always considered a plane that only holds it's weight or drops during the wot test to be under powered....this isn't the case so I'll be maidening soon. i put the landing gear on to protect the belly of the fuse landing without it,even though it would look way better gearless.

must admit to being pleasantly surprised at the ailerons hookup with the push rods that travel through the wing to a center servo. they have a lot of throw...more than i expected,this plane should do nice rolls. it weighs so little i will wait for a calm day to maiden,but at least it's programed into the tx.........just gotta wait. afew pictures.

one question,the prop seats on the geared shaft nut and then another nut tightens down ...but using the wrench ,the nut began to counter sink and removing it later would be impossible. i used a washer but wondered if the nut was supposed to set into the prop as there is a countersunk nut shape on both sides of the prop hub?? any one familiar with geared brushed setups know what I'm asking and is what i did right? thanks.

narrow is the place to land...wide is the space to crash....choose the narrow way!

Hi Stu
Great looking birdvery nice
You should be fine on the prop as long as it stays tight and in place
Best of luck with the maiden
Take care dear friend
Yours Hank
