I will be ordering this plane today to go with my Skyshark P-40. I have a Brillelli 46GT I will be installing which is very simular in design to your Thor 45. I am very interest in seeing how you install you engine. Can you order the H9 P-47 retracts from horizon hobbies. I am looking into Century Jet retrcts, but they are $295.00

Jim,

Do you think the Hanger 9 P-47 gear can hold up to a greass field? Our field is a little ruff in spots and I hope the Hanger 9 P-47 gear can handle the grass. It is a lot cheaper than the Century Jet gear for this plane. What servo's are you planning on using for the Hanger 9 gear?

I got these from a friend that crashed his P-47.
He gave me the set from his plane, WITH JR servos and a complete NEW set of retracts, struts and wheels...... ALL for $100.00.
So I am really keeping this on the cheap !
Our club has a grass field and it is well manicured.
We have several members that fly the H-9 P-47 and I don't think anyone has had a problem so far.
My buddy has a DA-50 in his... no problem !
I will post pics of the process of fitting these gear as soon as possible.

Jim

I found the Hanger 9 P-47 landing gear on Horizon's web page. The gear is only $80.00. So I guess all I will need after the gear from Horizon is the servo's and wheels. The gear looks complete. Jim, will you be adding a servo mount in each wing for each gear? I would like to see how you did it once you have them installed. Thanks

Jim

The servo mounts right to the retract housing.

Here is the manual for the P-47.
Go to page 16 for the retracts.

I'm not sure right this minute, but I think my new set came with wheels on the axels/struts.

I just ordered this CMP 80" Zero from RCOnly and talked to Barry there. He seems like a very nice guy. I am going to be getting the Century Jet retracts with the Zero because RCOnly can give me a better deal than if I order them from Century Jet. The CMP Zero was not listed on his web page, but someone on another thread told me he had them in stock so I e-mailed him and the deal was set from there. I cannot wait to get started. My P-40 will be done this week and I will than start on the Zero

Here is RCOnly's web site if anyone is interested.

Well I am still waiting for my zero and retracts to get here. There has been some problems with shipping. I talked to Barry today and I hope everything is OK know.

Jim, how is the building coming on the zero?. Have you done the maiden flight yet? I would love to see some more pic's of the plane and retracts if you have them installed now.

WoW !
I have really slacked off on this bird !
My shoulder surgery has worked out great and now I am back at work in the FL heat so I'm kinda pooped when I get home, but I have one wing retract installed and just getting started on the other.
