Hi Robin

Sorry about this but If that's the fms pitts v2 1400mm then you might want to read the thread on rc groups about a couple of issues.


picture below is of the undercarriage wire which goes through the wheel on my plane. the notch is for a circlip, After a few flights this can break with obvious consequences. I have done the mod suggested on page 14 of thread. Another possible flaw is the wing tube is not long enough hence there might not be enough to support the wing and the end stop in the wing can be missing (not on mine). video on post 99 page 7 of rcgroups thread show this. I replaced the tubing with 10mm carbon tube but it's a tight fit and not easily put in and out. there are also comments about the strength of clevices if repeatably taking them on and off.

Not sue if this has already been discussed but if your operator ID is on the outside, then anyone could take your operator ID and put it on their drone or plane, fly it and possibly crash it near an airport etc. You would have difficulty proving you weren't flying. Although more complicated each plane should have a unique number displayed on it, linked to an operator id which is kept private.

Thread: Seagull DH-98 Mosquito engine choice
10/01/2018 23:23:39

 Just added 3 photos to mosquito album. I didn't like the motor mounting method, Instead of measuring and glueing the movable wooden block I have fixed the block as far back as it can go. using 4mm all thread allows easy adjustment of motor to fit in cowl. I'm planning on using (as I had them already) Turnigy G46 670kv motors with 14 x 7 3 blade master airscrew propeller I have both tractor and pusher props. haven't decided yet whether to use both tractor or 1 tractor and 1 pusher. Number of cells not decided yet

rcuniverse link below


If the rc universe review is correct then I have mixed up the horns, but they might be wrong. I found the aileron slot thickness was to shallow for the aileron horns shown in RCU review (may not be case in other mosquito kits. I used the 3 smaller horns for ailerons (lined up over the hinge line) and rudder, and then found which remaining horns lined up over the elevator hinge line which them left the flaps. too late now they are glued in.
