    Same thing different label, you should be able to mix and match all that stuff with that radio.
    Have you been to the opensource website for the TH9X updates and mixes?
    No?
    Then off you pop:D

    I was going to ask you if Rob Ford the crack head mayor of Toronto had been elected PM and just looked him up and found out he died last year. I never heard that when it happened. Dude was a trip, me and my wife laughed our arses off watching his antics on you tube! R.I.P.

    I think I may have solved why your P-40 crashed. If you freeze the video just as it starts to spin right and look hard up in the top right hand section of the video you can see it. Most people probably won't be able to make it out but there is a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 banking away into the distance! :)

    Jeff, can you show me a picture of your open battery hatch and battery placement please.
     
  8. Here you go Ian,
    If you go back a few postings you will see how I made the battery tray one piece all the way up to the motor mount, added in tabs and notches for alignment and strength then the front firewall I cut a 40mm x 35mm hole in it (slightly larger then the battery) and cut it in half . Front canopy support you have to cut out for the battery also plus the rear one to clear the servos.

    Progress so far on my P.40.
    Don`t ask me what colour scheme it is I am colour blind and hoping it will match one of the 11,000 or so P.40`s built.

    Thanks FBK, it looks like blue green,I could have done with some yellow to make it a yellow green.
    I will splash some brown on it, I know it will be brown cos I have some red that will mix with the green and I know it`s red cos it says so on the tin.

    BB56, very nice the way you blended the wing into the fuse. Nice touch.

    It still requires some fettling and the paint scheme to finish, guns, wheels and electrics. I will paint the wheels on in the up position and use some push rod outers to make the .50s.
    I covered the nose with yellow pages and water based varnish and it came out pretty smooth.
