Hi, I did check the RCU ads last week and viola there was a used set of Sierra gear for this arf, I had to mail them to a US address so I'll pick them up in June. The Sierra gear have the 15 degree twist upon retracting so that will make the wheel pant installation better.
.

from http://www.sierragiant.com/prod04.html
Key Benefits

[Bullet] Struts Rotate 15 Degrees to keep the Gear Doors Straight Both Up and Down.
[Bullet] Scale Struts with No Tork Links.
[Bullet] 95 Degrees of Retraction for Scale Angles.
[Bullet] Aluminum Upper Strut with Stainless Steel Lower Strut.
[Bullet] 3/4" Pneumatic Cylinders.

cheers - ken

Hi, I was pretty happy when I found the set on RCU.

Is your Hurricane flying - is there some photos? I hope to finish the ESM in 2015, 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

my ESM will fly in the next week or so............ just finished casting up a 3 pound slug of lead for balance - it will go in behind the fire wall......

the Vallencourt is a "just start" project - fuse on the jig, stringers just started......

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Ken, finally got the plane in the air....needed what seemed like a lot of down and right trim but once on the ground realized my Tx was set with high resolution on the trims, so wasn't as much as i thought.... not really visible on either elevators or Ailerons..

Plane flew quite well, and the landing was a treat....new engine so idle had crept up and was about 250 RPM too high...landed long. I realized as it went by in the air, 5 feet high and 5 MPH that flaps were absolutely NOT required.

Unfortunately, as you see, my camera crew went to sleep just as i turned to take off - actually at this point we decided to replace the cheap Chinese plug that came with the engine with a proper plug.... the next time i did fly but the camera was elsewhere.... blah!! That first picture is after the maiden.....

Beauty and congrats, what size of 3 blade prop are you using, is that a DLE 35 in it?

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Yup, engine is DLE 35R, so there is very little showing except for the head and pipes. My tach had crapped out so we don't even know what it was turning so we used the TSAR method... idle sounded right, transition sounded right, top end sounded about right so off it went..
Prop is a 17x10 and looks about right scale-wise...engine certainly doesn't have any trouble spinning it

I started this darn thing December 2011 (that's right - 11) so by now I was so sick of it I just said screws, bolts and nuts are tight, retract air is holding pressure, twirly thingy on the front is spinning - GO FORT.

My greatest fear was landing the thing, but that was non issue. If i hadn't run through one of our runways many holes I'd have put several more flights on... but bent an axle...poop..

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Three straight days of rain in later August, time to pull the Hurri out of the box and get to work, my target completion is 2015 the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, so this will be a leisurely assembly and a chance to keep this thread going.
.
A buddy picked up the Robert Standford Tuck book at OSH, "Fly for Your Life" he lent it to me and it's a very good read.
I mounted the DLE 35, cowl is cut, 60mm engine standoff from Hobby King were cut down to 52mm. I also add a length of 3/8 thick balsa to the rudder post for additional hinge backing and added a piece of 1/4" ply where the front wing dowels holes will be drilled.

A nice 8 minute video with Robert Stanford Tuck

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

HI, over the Christmas holidays I was able to putter around with the Hurricane a bit, my main project this winter is a P-51 pedal plane for my grandson.
.
I read on the web some we're adding a heat shield between the DLE 35 RA muffler and the carburator, so I did that, the 35 is now mounted, the off-on switches, air fill and fuel fill are in.
cheers!
