Pilot Projects – P-47 Thunderbolt

Pilot Projects - P-47 Thunderbolt
Built from the Top Flite kit, Fazeel’s 61-inch-span warbird is powered by a Zenoah G20 turning a Xoar 16 x 8 prop. The model has Oratex covering and UniLight lights, and Fazeel notes that the model’s Electron retracts and Eurokitshop hydraulic struts operate flawlessly. He adds that his warbird “Lands smoothly with full flaps, but it’s necessary to keep some power applied till flare due to the large drag.” Fazeel Khan, Oxford, Ohio
