I didn't see this before as I don't usually look at the R/C stuff. That is superb!

Cheers,

Dan.

Ditto what they said! Another lovely model, and it's amazing what you do with Mylar.

... giving a loading of .55g/sq inch.


Impressive statistic Ralph.  And there's no evidence of 'drudgery' in the finished model, which looks fab!

Post a video for us, in due course, of some air action...  Grin

Thanks all for nice comments.  I don't understand why more scale builders don't use mylar covering.  It isn't all that difficult - although you can't print onto it so have to use decals.

Thanks again Lurk, Russ, Scott, John, for nice comments.  Keep building and flying.

Great effort - flying video please. Impressive finish for that weight.

Winter has set in now.  I had intended first flights outdoors but may be some time in March if the Manchester velodrome becomes available again. Video as soon as it can get in the air.
 
As regards weight - the mylar helps. Wink also I have gone for very lightweight brushed motor/radio/servo set up that with 1S battery weighs about 14g. Airframe weight is about 29g that seems reasonable for a Veron design. There are some similar sized models on this site that have brushless motor/full range Rx and independent servos with 2S batteries that weigh twice as much as this model and fly all right.  I was trying to keep the speed down.

All I had to do was fit the returned and repaired 3ch rx and go fly on the first sunny and dead calm day for weeks. 
Wrong.... the motor would not run after the first burst.... a bit like ic engines without the castor oil mess.  In
desperation I unwrapped a new 6 ch rx unit, connected it outside the plane and found that it would enable the motor to run okay,
so perhaps the small rx won't support the P51 motor gearbox.

The only problem was that the servo functions were now on the wrong side and the rx was physically bigger.  I stripped
the rear fuselage underside covering and re-routed the pushrods.  By the time I had connected and re-covered everything then re-programmed the tx, it was too late to get to the field.  (We can only fly safely in the mornings to avoid trees, obstacles and the sun.) 
So must wait until we get some still conditions again, but we are getting there.

Pics show the new rx in place, the bind light working, the radiator box in place, the lower cowling in place and the motor
running up - safely chocked.

That's a bit of bad luck with the smaller receiver Ralph. It sounds like you may have exceeded the current limit of the on board ESC.

Anyway it's ready and waiting now!

Happy flying and looking forward to a video if possible.
