ARF Answers

Question 1: 

Hi Richard, it's great to have access to someone that’s built so many ARF’s I have been  out of the hobby for about two years and I can see that all kinds of  ARF’s are now on the market. I have the new World Models 60 size P51D  Mustang and I installing Robo Struts on the main gear and will  strengthen the retract mounts and plates with West Epoxy and fiberglass  and some triangle stock and I will do the same with the firewall. I am  trying to pick an engine for it and I am leaning towards a 120 four  stroke I am just not sure which one I am thinking a Saito 120 and a  Slimline inverted pitts muffler if you have any more ideas I would  appreciate them.Thanks Much Joe"  


Richard's  Answer:

 "Hi Joe.  The new World Models 60 size P-51D Mustang is a great flyer. It's also  easy to land, especially with full flaps. You are doing the  right  things by reinforcing the retract mounts and the firewall. Shock  absorbing RoboStruts will definitely help smooth out those not so  perfect landings. Any 120 four stroke will provide the plane with more  than enough power. In fact, this plane will fly just fine on a .91 four  stroke. The bad thing about using a 120 four stroke in this plane is  that the cylinder head will be sticking out quite a bit. If you are  looking for pure speed, then the YS 110FZ four stroke is your ticket.  The YS 110 is the same physical size as other .91 four strokes. Yet, it  can put out more power than most, if not all, of the 120 four strokes."            


Question 2: 

"Since I was a kid, I have wanted to build and fly a WWII F4U.  The problem is that I have never rally been able to het into the hobby until now.  Is this project a little too much to start with ?  I have been building static display models most of my life and fell the actual construction will fall right into my current hobby skills, but I reallyy want to fly.  If this kind of project is a little advanced can you suggest a better beginning?   My sons - ages 8 and 6 - have enjoyed helping dad with other modeling projects.  We look forward to taking things to the next level by I don't want to frustrated everyone.  Thank you, Jeffery, Portland, Oregon"


Richard's Answer:

 "Hi Jeffrey, The F4U Corsair is a beautiful plane and a joy to fly.  However, if you have never flown a low wing  plane, then flying and landing a Corsair  could be tricky and disastrous. I would suggest starting out with a high wing trainer first, then move to a low  wing sport plane and fly that for a  while before switching to a warbird. Once you have mastered the skill of flying and landing a low wing plane,  then the Corsair is a fair game.  Richard"
