Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

My maiden Hurricane flight did not end well, last week I took up the Hurricane up at the Gimli field. The DLE 35 ra was running nice, I pointed the Hurricane into the wind and off she went, nice climb out, 2 clicks down, one click right, cruising nicely at 5/8" power, balance bang on.

Three circuits, time to land and check for lose bits, I'm downwind with the gear down and 1/4" down flap, 3/8 to 1/2 power, about to left turn to the base leg when the Hurri rolls right over to the right and in she went, felt like my radio went dead for that split instance.

There was two flap servoes driving four pieces of flap, a metal tab joined the out flap to the inner servoe driven flap, I'm thinking this tab let go or one of the elevator servoes let go or an aileron servo or what ever - pissed me off!

A first look it seemed a total write off, but now that she's back in the shop, I can fix this. The fuselage is now 75% repaired, the DLE 35 looks ok, the Sierra gear look ok, so it's a winter rebuild project. cheers! - ken

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

I've slowly started the rebuilt, progress will pick up when the snow sets in. The DLE 35 was bench ran and is ok and the retracts are ok too, in fact I glued some bits in last night, as it was hot and muggy in Wpg this weekend but the basement was cool.

I also picked up a new aftermarket canopy from Park Flyer Plastics http://parkflyerplastics.com/cart/in...roducts_id=582

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Ken - what will you be using to replace the covering? That's what I'm facing with MY ESM rebuild...

I will use Balsarite and iron to stick back on the original covering where I can. On the sheeted areas I will use polyacrlic with 0.7oz cloth, I dont think I have any open structure to cover.

I will get the repairs to the primer stage, a coat of prime and then fly the Hurri - if it does ok after the test flight I'll try paint matching the repairs with latex. cheers - ken

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

I got the ESM Hawker Hurricane back on it's undercarriage this morning following last years unsuccessful test flight crash. The repairs are very basic, just to get a few flights in, once successful, I'll work on the finish, however one could say the Hurricane now has a scale combat appearance. I took pieces of the ESM covering to Canadian Tire, scanned the covering and got the green and brown matched fairly well, these CIL paint tester can were $7.00 each.

Photos are today, crash, tester paint, with Buds at Duxford gate guard last July, crash. The DLE 35RA flew it well on the five minutes I flew until coming in to land on a lh circuit, the Hurri began rolling to the right while on the down wind leg - stall, flap or elevator failure. RX sent to Horizon for check out. Flaps will not be used on the next flight.
