As I wait for the speed controllers from HK, I proceeded to work on the guns.


Ebay gatling guns for $1.99, and the faux interior works pretty nice. Sadly, lots of the gun detail is hidden, but thats cool, I'm not going for a Scale contest winner (but yes, there will be 3 guns).

C-47 Maiden Video
 
Here is recent video of a Polk C-47 maiden. Modified with a cargo drop to drop 5 4" paratroopers.

The plane has now been entirely painted with a nice olive green spray paint. With the invasion stripes it looks 100,000,000 times better!

It was a bit tail heavy when first flown.

It's a friends plane. All I remember is that they are 9" Master Aircrews.

I'll post the pitch when I can get the info.

Hi All, Here's some updated pic's with the fuse,wing,tail and landing lights. There are 9 lights in all on the plane. Looks real nice when flying at sunset. Landing lights in the wing can be turned on and off from the transmitter.

Keep em flying:D

9 X 7

Thanks for that.

I put some 9x7 2 blade props on it and have not yet flown it with the new props. Hopefully this weekend.

Should be just right for this plane. I'm going to try for a SPOOKY scheme after I get mine flying.

How did you find the mini guns on ebay? What did you search for?

I searched "gatling gun" and found this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/GATLING-MINI-GUN-w-Ammo-Case-1-18-Scale-Weapons_W0QQitemZ190332964561QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH _DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2c50ba8ed1&_trksid=p3286 .c0.m14

Once I saw this photo, the scale looked good enough for me.

Thats the guy I bought from.

C-47 Final Photos

Here is my C-47 as she is flight line ready. Having flown her 4x now, she's fully trimmed, and a pure pleasure to fly from a paved runway. Taking a lesson this last weekend in Scale Military Power take-off's from Hircflyer, I had no problem after my first take off at FEAR, where the 90 degree cross-wind was right AT OUR BACKS, sent her right over the pits as soon as she rotated due to my over-powering her past V1. As soon as I was at V1 (lifting the tail up), the AOA made it hop up and then weathervane right into the wind. Thank goodness I have a lot of power so I just cranked and banked.

they are not out of business, just out of the rc stuff for a while from what I understand.

You missed the good stuff by a couple of months man!

See . . . yet another reason to stay connected to the forums!

Shylock 01-20-2010 06:40 PM

Does anybody have a manual laying around? I have a buddy who lost his and is now stuck on how to install the servos.

pval3 01-23-2010 01:50 AM

manual
 
hey there

I am on the road until sunday of next week but will copy and pdf it to you if no one is able to get the info to you.

here is the protek manual from ezone someone posted a few months back though.

It appears that the limit on pdf size is 1/3 the size of this 10 page manual....know I knew there was something I hate about "what" flier:censor:

Any way . . . . .

let me try something else

Phil
