Uncrating and Field Assembly of the P-47 Thunderbolt Fighter - 1944

Uploaded by ZenosWarbirds

This truly remarkable step-by-step training film shows how a ground support crew of fifty men could assemble a P-47 fighter in a farm field using nothing more than muscle, unpowered hand tools and pieces of the shipping crate it came in. We're talking nothing more than hammers, wrenches and bicycle pumps. You'll get a unique look at the inner wo....

Hi Brad,
I personally tend to fly with the plane slightly in the nose heavy side. I fly mostly pattern airplanes (F3A) and those fly slightly nose heavy. I feel that the plane tracks better during the lines and they lock better during the snaps and spins.

With the gassers, I set them up pretty much the same way. Just a bit on the nose heavy side. For the same reason, tracking and snaps. As for 3D, I can't tell personally a huge difference. The plane locks right in to the hover even if it is a bit on the nosel heavy side.

Too nose heavy airplanes, fly poorly.....too tail heavy airplanes, fly only once.
Cheers,

BTW...Merry Christmas guys!
Will

Yep I think I am actually referring to a too nose heavy. I have my Ultimate set-up to be slightly nose heavy from neutral. Roll inverted and it slightly drops the nose. on a 45 deg up line if stays 45.

The maiden flight my first landing did not feel good at all I couldn't get it to setting in and it seem to become very unstable (stall)

I had a Decathlon that was way to nose heavy and it would get the death bounce going if you didn't let off the elevator as soon as the tires touched the ground


And yes Merry Christmas to all aswell!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Sheeeesh... All along I thought we were still talking about Hanes' pictures

I'm setting myself up for serious nose heaviness with my Brick190, LOL

Only 6 more days until we hear a quad run in Burlington
