Just a note about Dynam Detrum ESCs... They are EXACTLY the same as Turnigy Plush ESCs. I've used the Turnigy Plush programming card on my Dynam ESCs with ZERO issues.

Yep she's got retracts.

In fact we discovered one was not closing so I left them down rather then risk a burn out.

Depends on how I feel. :)

Normally I bring 3-4 planes to the field.

One big one that fits in the trunk of the car.
2-3 in the back seat if I'm not flying with my son.

Usually the EFX and FT Racer or T-28.

Gear & Wiring

Fun evening in the hanger.
Specially nice after a full day of work and home life.

So I learned how to remove the shaft from the retracts.
You do need an allen key.

Used my bench vice to bend the shaft. Did not take much.

Once the alignment was good I put everything back together.

Next job was wing wiring. Spent some time cleaning all of that up. Shorter Y wires and so on helped a lot.
For the gun kit bec I still plan on shorting all the wires but this ok for now. I did zip tie a the loose wires around the bec for now but this is a huge improvement over before.

There was a lot of balance weight in the nose. I've removed a big chunk and slid the battery to the front.
Why not.

And finally some shots of the repaired landing gear.

I maintain buying a used plane is a very stress free experience.
There is no pressure to keep it perfect and the fear of doing something wrong is not really there.

Andre i found my self from researching this plane too radial engines and other full scale stuff
also nice job on the landing gear wiring. so now that you've had a few flights what do you think about the flying characteristics and experience
also sorry about the million questions

I thought it went very well to be honest.

Most people want to fly war birds fast but I also like to slow them down to see what they are going to do.
It did dip the nose down from time to time of I was dropping the air speed too low.

I had my rates set to softly so next time out I'll be adjusting those so I can get a little more out of the ailerons.

I keep being told the bigger they are the better they fly ;)


Really the only thing I need to work on is my landings other wise I like the plane.

Mind you I say that about all the planes I fly.
