Dan Mc: Rich did you have a problem with the retracts on that bf109? I purchased
mine new from BH and the retracts in the wings bind up when going up or
down. Flew it twice and had to cycle the retracts in the air a few times to
get them down. "Scary" Safety check at my field grounded this bird. Would
BH or FMS replace the faulty retracts or am I stuck with faulty gears?
Frank Nap: Are the landing gear struts on this Bf-109 spring loaded, like that on the
FMS FW-190 ??
Hafeez Akbar: The music really makes this video.
Frankie Boots: how did you set up your landing gear?
Sewa Chertov: Bomb? Are you idiot??
Its a fuel tank!
Frankie Boots: do you absolutely need a secondary receiver?
Joe Braxton: How's that turnigy esc holding up? Is it a nice esc?
Jazzman3121: Excellent flight footage and great tips/tricks in the build! I'll be
referring to this video often I'm sure, thanks!
TheRoggan123: Nice plane! It makes a very nice noise as well!
Timo Preusse: is this realy the stock engine??!!!flies awesome!!
Frankie Boots: Mine with be arriving tom. Got the desert camo = )
from Motion RC
stabes70: What flys better the BF109 or the FW 190?
tuan luong: hope some day they'd make a FMS machine gun mouth on the plane and give it
a telescopic aim
Frankie Boots: great music even cooler plane! How is the landing gear holding up?
930Scarlet: Can a beginner buy one of these?
Red Rabbit: What do you recommend, the Dynam 109 or the one from FMS?
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
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 email@example.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
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.
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
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"
malibulon: Great review and flight!
RCINFORMER: Its called a collet prop drive, most hobby shops should have them
