Be curious to see how you like it - I maidened mine (26cc gas) yesterday. Unless you've beefed up the wheel strut covers, they'll flutter like hell. Also - check the black stripes on the top of the wing with a moniokote iron - I had one come about half off.

I'll be curious to hear what your AUW is once the batteries are in.

Landed fine, was at full flaps into maybe a 10 mph head/crosswind. Flap travel can be seen here.



No indications of nose over. Also - check where the wheels (replaced the foam crap on mine with Du-Bro) come up against the landing gear strut - I had to add a spacer to keep the tire from "grabbing" the strut.

Mine came in at 13.2 lbs w/o fuel

did it need the flaps to land ?

also what did you use to cover the retract servos?

nice job

Could have landed without flaps - the runway at the field is pretty long - but I like flaps for the heavier planes. I used the supplied "monocote" to cover the retract hatches.

Thanks - I was pretty happy the way it came out. More pics are here (a few F6F pictures accidentally wound up in that folder too)

Didn't pay too much attention to the flight times on the maiden - but I was overpropped (18x8, going down to 18x6), and a bit rich on the high end. My 100" H9 SuperCub stays aloft an easy 20-25 minutes on 16 oz of gas with a 26cc Zenoah - I'm expecting at least 15 when the P-47 is finally on it's stride.

VERY nice Mitchell! I haven't built any fuel twins yet, but have some electric twins (Sonic Liner, P-38, F-14, A-10)
