Did this video help you?

Joe Braxton: How's that turnigy esc holding up? Is it a nice esc?

TheRoggan123: Nice plane! It makes a very nice noise as well!

Sewa Chertov: Bomb? Are you idiot?? Its a fuel tank!

Jazzman3121: Excellent flight footage and great tips/tricks in the build! I'll be referring to this video often I'm sure, thanks!

stabes70: What flys better the BF109 or the FW 190? 

Timo Preusse: is this realy the stock engine??!!!flies awesome!!

930Scarlet: Can a beginner buy one of these?

Red Rabbit: What do you recommend, the Dynam 109 or the one from FMS?

tuan luong: hope some day they'd make a FMS machine gun mouth on the plane and give it a telescopic aim

Red Rabbit: In some other videos I saw issues with the speed controller.. Now, you say that an upgraded SC would be required, IF I upgrade my battery.. Do you think that 4S 25C 3000mAh works with the default SC? Great Video, and btw. a happy new year :)

RCINFORMER: Yes, it is a right and down thrust.... it is built into the cowl that is just behind the spinner and the spinner should line up parallel to the cowl... but in this case the bent mount pushed the spinner even further out of alignment, all i did was return it to the intended amount of right and down thrust.

justplanecrazy: wow! you are an amazing pilot! Nice review too. Thanks.

RCINFORMER: I may do one in the future...

RCINFORMER: Where did you get it? Occasionally they send out a set of rods that are to short for the control surfaces... First, be sure that your servo horns are sticking out of the wing at a 90 Degree angle, if they are to far forward it could make the rod seem to short. If they are ok, Contact the dealer you purchased it from and request longer ones or just make your own rods.... any hobby shop should carry a set of 2-56 rods, I usually make my own aileron rods when this happens....

muckemm: Flimsy looking

fett63: Excellent reviews, glad I found your videos here. Could you do a video on how to secure your camera on several planes? Man they come out really neat?

Eric B: Hi Rich, just discovered your videos, thank you for taking the time and energy to make them! I have a question about this 109...I have only 3 flights on mine (about 10-12 landings), all on pavement, and just a few ground loops. My landing gear seems to be getting sloppy, mainyl laterally. The play seems to be within the landing gear servo itself, where the trunion meets the pushrod within. The play is such now that when retracting the gear, it doesn't quite retract all the way. Any ideas??

jpt1205: Rich, thanks a ton for all the excellent videos and recommendations!!! Really appreciated. I have a dilemma of sorts though...I have been saving my pennies and about to pull the trigger on one of these fms 1400 series planes. I am torn between the v7 P-51, the BF109, and the FW190. Would you still recommend the BF109 overall, having flown and worked with all three? Many thanks for any feedback! You deserve a kickback from fms/banana Hobby!

Brandon Moon: Outstanding Rich, If you ever want any custom painting done give me a jingle (480-415-5924) or brandonmoon1@hotmail.com. We need to team up :)

Audrius Birbilas: Great video, thank you. I got same rc plane but not flying with it yet.

Mona8519: Very very cool! Like it :D

staux18: So which is best the FMS 1400mm Fw190 or BF109? Cheers Staux

James Armes: I had the EDF F-35 and the control rods had a threaded control clevis that went into the horns that allowed compensation if there was too much play and it also had adjustable points that allowed for modifications if you wanted to do them with minimal effort. You may want to look at the clevis end of the rods to see if there are threads and if so, you can add about a half inch to compensate for a short rod. Just my thoughts on some common issues that are out there.

RCINFORMER: Actually, the right and down thrust is intended to REDUCE the left turning tendency's caused by effects of P-factor, Gyroscopic Precession, Torque, & Spiraling Slipstream... if you want to get specific? Assuming of course your propeller spins clockwise when viewed from the roosterpit. it is most pronounced at slow airspeeds, high angles of attack, with high power settings... like during takeoff.

RCWASPOVISION: I love the way you do your onboard footage. Just spectacular! Any chance you can do a tutorial on mounting a camera to your plane?

ponchoyo: i have an random inrunner motor like that sitting around, where do u get the metal sleeve for the shaft, so that the prop assembly to mount on to? or is that how the motor came?

geneticallyinferior1: it is missing the most distinguishing markings........

RCINFORMER: You really want to check the CG with the gear extended...

RCINFORMER: The 109 is more powerful and faster, but more challenging to land due to the narrow landing gear. The 190 is highly maneuverable and much easier to land due to the wider landing gear... both planes are outstanding models:)

John DellArciprete: Rich, Again best on the net. I do notice you spend a lot of time modifying cooling.. which I know can't hurt.. but have you thought about using a radio with telemetry or some simple thermocouples and doing some before and after temperature comparisons of the engine compartment, ESC and battery. I know the Hitec radios have this capability and it would be great to see the quantified benefit.

Raehm Leonard: Fabulous video, Rich! I think your best ever. Just love that opening sequence with the "enemy" is coming strait towards you. Nice review as well, but I've always been skittish about BH as a dealer. Can you tell me what the delivery time and shipping is?

SirRobertofKnoxly: G'day Rich, Thanks very much for this vid, I found is most informative, and the tips are great. I have neen assembling and flying these FMS foamies for 3 years now, but after having seen this vid, I will be going through them all and incorporating your suggestions. Thanks mate, keep them coming. Regards Rob

ponchoyo: much appreciated! Thank you!

RCINFORMER: Probably the best overall flyer is the Mustang. it is EASIEST to fly, takeoff and land... it is quick but not the fastest of the 3.... the FW-190 is about the middle of the three, it is faster, maneuvers a bit more aggressively and lands well due to its wide gear... the 109 is the hottest performing of the 3, it is fast and very maneuverable, it is also the most challenging to perform a smooth takeoff an landing.. You will not be disappointed with any of them...let me know what you decide.rich

geneticallyinferior1: fly like crap? you did watch him fly the plane right? i have seen lots of his flying vids. if the planes fly like crap, then in reality you are calling him an amazing pilot. as or doing something for 20 years, how long have you been writing english? your writing is barely comprehensible. FYI - i purposefully restrict my use of CAPS

Darryl Landry: Great stuff, Rich! Nice catch on the motor winding. Can't wait to see more

RCINFORMER: Thanks... contact me anytime...

devanoo2: I got it from banana hobby and of course today while spooling up the engine the motor mount comes lose an blows a hole in my roof..this plane is driving me crazy haha but thanks ill just replace the rods after I fix the spinner and mount :(

RCINFORMER: The first configuration that the plane flys in is where you want to set the CG ... this is gear down. Gear down also produces a pitch down moment... even in a Corsair where the gear retracts back the CG does not shift that much.

Brandon Moon: Great video, I'm actually rigging up one right now and getting ready for a custom paint job

RCINFORMER: It has lots of thrust... even more with a bigger battery or higher "C" rating.

malibulon: Great review and flight!

RCINFORMER: Its called a collet prop drive, most hobby shops should have them

jpt1205: Rich, Done. Just posted a note on BH facebook site...I think they owe a significant amount of business to your informative videos/feedback. I haven't bought from BH since 2010, but I'm coming back in large part thanks to you.

kev hed: Rich...as always...AWESOME review and great tips!! Please keep 'em coming. Looks like my wallet will be taking another hit...can't wait to get this gem.

ssrc30: The motor is built at an angle deliberately. It's to offset the torque so that the plane is easier to takeoff and taxi etc...

RCINFORMER: Its a top notch plane! You will like it!

Randy Carroll: Great video Rich !!! Lots of helpful info. and super flying. I have a DYNAM bf-109 1200MM and i done some mods. on my flaps and now have inboard and outboard flaps, looks and works great! put a little forward rake in main gear , so far - so good. Keep up with the good reviews. looking forward to them. no neg. comments here.

Crane RC: do a video with the P-38 and the BF109 doing a dogfight , on board video with epic music and a crash at the now that's entertainment.

RCINFORMER: Yes that is correct,BUT... I did not remove the right/Down thrust. This angle is built in to reduce the effects of P-Factor, Gyroscopic precession, Torque and spiraling slipstream. The Right/Down Thrust is designed into the Cowling just behind the spinner, If there is an equal Gap between the spinner and the cowl, you will have the proper designed in right/down thrust :)
