Also I’m think that because you said that it needs 2oz of nose weight to use a 1300mah battery
I would tape it together with the gap. Every once in a while my printer prints things off and I have to leave a gap to get it to line up right.
Sorry for the low amount of build photos. The problem with photos is usually the way I'll build a plane the first time isn't the way I intend for the builder to build it. For example, I usually glue formers to the fuselage, then find the shape of the molded piece and wrap it around. However the way you'd build it would require you to glue the formers to the molded piece first, then slide it on the fuselage pieces. It all depends on the design. I've tried to design the newest models to not account for that but that's why build photos either have a lot, or a little. However, I will be more than happy to give you direct advice or answer questions about the C-47.Hi Guys,
I'm actually building the C-47 right now. It is, as said earlier in this thread, a bit touch and go to figure out where everything goes. Got a bit of a problem when I glued the wing prior to adding the engine supports and mounts. I wish 13th Squadron would be a bit more generous in their build photos. Especially for the wheels and front of the plane. Anyways, I think I figured out mostly everything. I am actually adding electric retracts. I'll post pictures when I get there but here is where I am.
Awesome! Looking pretty solid so far! It will be cool to see it with retractable landing gear. How do you plan to fit the 4s 2200mah? I just know there's not to much space up there in the nose lol?I’ve advanced quite a lot yesterday. Only have the cowl and the fuselage cover to add. The wingspan is 1440mm. I’ve added the landing gear yesterday. Used the ones of the Hobbyking Lancaster that I had laying around. Fits and looks great. Can’t wait to finish it now. I’ll have to push the elevator and rudder servos back a bit because I can’t find long enough push rods. I prefer a rudder (old school). As for the battery, I’m even thinking 4S 2200mm.
That's awesome! That has more space than you'll ever need! Can't wait!Actually, It will fit around the wing level for CG purposes. And I designed a door on top of the fuselage.
