Default Me 109

I finished this plane a little while back. Its a great flier. I started with a G model and now I am working on a K model. I found that the Eflite 160 pulls a 19lbs warbird pretty well. Here are pic's of the G Model That is finished:


Stats:
84" wing span
19lbs ready to fly
E-flite 160
Castle Creations 110HV
2 Dualsky 5000 mah 5 cell batteries
20x10 APC-E prop
JR 9303 2.4 radio

I've had an extremely long day at work, and I read Tom's post as "That is a beautiful Fockewulf!" and had to read it three times and look at the original post back and forth before I figured out Tom isn't crazy and I'm not seeing things (because I could have sworn the title said Me 109, and the pictures sure didn't LOOK like a Fockewulf) and I realized my brain added an extra word to that sentence and Tom left out a comma, which was a fatal combination for my reading comprehension skills, apparently.

All that to say ... holy schmoley, what an awesomely big electric warbird!

I must have missed the whole Fockewulf thing???

Thanks for the comments..

I am currently working a different version of the of the 109..I am using the same set up that i have in the first one. But instead of a built up wing I am using a foam core wing to see if there is an real weight difference.

Hehe ... Glad to see I'm not the only one who read it that way. I think Tom's just trying to mess with people's heads who are up late reading!

How much are your kits? Who's making the landing gear and how much is that running?

It's a great looking kit. I just don't see any ordering information.

Default 109 K

I used the same set up i had on the prototype:

Stats:

19lbs ready to fly
E-flite 160
Castle Creations 110HV
2 Dualsky 5000 mah 5 cell batteries
20x10 APC-E prop
JR 9303 2.4 radio

I may be at just a tad over the 19 lbs. I am at 15.80lbs as you see it there. I have to add 3 lbs of batteries...

I should have flight vids at the end of the month if all goes well...

I just got back from Fayetteville NC fly-in and I got to fly the new K model 2 times. I almost lost it on the first take off due to way too much elevator and a heavy thumb. But it flew great. Here is the first of 2 videos...

Here is the second flight of the K-model. The retract servo had striped out and did not know it until I landed....

Congatulations on the maiden Ty! That is one beautiful plane you've built. The motor sounds great and that wheel landing in the second video looked super!

Default Me 109

Hey everyone,
I just got back from SEFF and had a great time... I got about 15 flights or more on the 2 109's over the past four days. I bought a second set of batteries so I have one set per plane now.
It was a little breezy over the 4 days averaging about 12-15 MPH and about a 45 degree crosswind. The 109 's did really well even in the crosswind. They land best with about 1.25" of flap down for me. Was able to a good wheel landings 4 out of 5 times. Here are pic's taken by Dave Langridge.

Hey Ya'll,
A friend of mine finished his 109 about 1 week ago and we flew together over the week end at the Gaint scale flyin in Fayetteville, NC
here is a vid...If you double click and go to youtube you can see it in higher quality video.

Also the 109 lands best at about 1" of flap. If you go full flap you need to keep on more power because of the drag....
