    Thanks for the build thread. Where did you source your motor from? Thanks!

      jseese, Wesley my son, ordered the power system off of Horizon Hobby. This system is off of the FMS 1700mm Corsair. I understand it is no longer in production. You my want to call Horizon and see if they will be providing parts going forward. This motor is the same for the P-51 FMS 1700mm. Check the numbers and see if they are the same. Hope this helps. Papa. P.S. If you kick on the picture of the power system, it will enlarge and show you the parts numbers up close.

        Thanks for posting some great resources MerryBoozers (build pics and video).

        I'm seriously considering building this bird. Just a couple of questions if you don't mind. I am assuming the one piece wing can be removed for transport? (I only have a small car). I have a power system from a 1600mm spitfire. I'm thinking that would work well on 6S in this bird. What do you think?

          Yes the wing definitely come off and I think that poer system would work although the prop spinner combo might look funky from the spitfire

              The 85amp will probably work I only used the 100 because I had one sitting on the shelf

                    two problems with my build first is the nylon bolts were too short so had to get some 3 inch bolts second and may not be a problem is if the flaps are full and the aileron that goes down will jam against the flap i think that the aileron travel set up in the directions will stop before they touch though

                      The down aileron does not hit the flap after u set the book travel spec. Love this plane. Iam getting out of the foamies and buying nexa (VQ). The size is nice and can fit into small cars with wings off. So far i have the tiger moth and p47
