Blistering Paint

As a Texan and Harvard fan with the second of the pair on the build table now, can understand the time and effort invested in both the large and small details on this one. And yes, a friend has a real one here at the airport.

Especially appreciate the onboard video perspective. It stresses how little control input is actually required during maneuvers. A good lesson in why smooth and slop free setups on any size are so important.

However, if any complaint, it would be by the far higher than scale speeds it pushed during the flight. The pilot at the controls looked like he went to what I call the "Catering Truck School of Driving", ie. two throttle settings, idle and firewalled.

I fly predominantly scale now and work to have it appear there is a pilot in the cockpit. This would have needed ejections seats!

I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

Re: Blistering Paint

Ya, perhaps a bit fast, but I really liked the smooth, slow rolls. The first time I flew my P-47 in a Scalemasters event I was probably going 500 (scale) miles an hour LOL. Didn't score well but it sure was fun!

Re: Blistering Paint

Hey - come on... this is a WARBIRD!

It is a TWO SEAT TRAINER that was used to prepare young fighter Jocks for the BIG LEAGUES!

OF COURSE they flew fast and made it dance! That is what the AT 6 was designed to do and that is what the pilots were suppose to do!

It looked good to me!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Life is either a daring adventure...
