    Run it by John but I am game as long as we go for that friday as well... I could camp on friday night but I would have to leave on saturday night. Sounds like a good plan though i only have the one operational 'warbird' to fly...

    John, There's an RC Warbird Event in Leander, TX the 24th-26th. Do you think we could do that? Or both? Check it and see what you think.

    Dick,
    The 25th is looking good for me. Actually, either Saturday or Sunday is allright.
    Just let me know which works better for you and Josh.

    Also, I got to go inside a C-47 at the airshow! It was a great experience. I put up a few pics in this thread: http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45559

    Hi Dick,
    I sent this same message to Josh. I am not sure about the 25th yet. Right now it's a 60% sure thing. If that seems like a good day for you and Josh, then I'll try my hardest to lock it in.
    Hope to see you soon,
    John

    John thanks for the offer on that motor man - I just bought a used eflt park 480 for the Jug. What motor are you using in your Jug?

    Hi Dick. Have you heard about the airshow up in Burnet? Me and the family will be there. I started a thread in the OT page. http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45559

    Secondly, I have a spare motor that might work for your P47. I have one exactly like it in mine and it it hauls it around with excellent authority. You are welcome to it if you like. I will get a picture and post it up in the P47 thread.

    Okay Doug thanks for the info- I do want a four blade prop option and the gearbox sounds good but the thought of possible damage on a nose over isn't that attractive to me anymore.
    I need to check out the new props you mentioned. Scale is the deal for me right now.
    Thanks again buddy -

    The P-47 was my third plane, before I was comfortable experimenting with power systems beyond what the manufacturer recomends, so I went with the E-Flite recommended setup. It's great! I like the look of the new scale 3 and 4 bladed props that Hobby-Lobby is selling. One of those would look great on the Jug! If you want a good outrunner for a prop like that, check out the PowerUp 480 that Jeff at headsuprc is selling. I've got one in my Sea Fury and it does great turning a 5-bladed prop. I like gearboxes, but big props and an occasional nose over are kind of rough on them.
