Electrified CMPro BF-109F Messerschmitt Warbird...

Post by admin » Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:09 am

Newest project on the workbench... Winter project actually but could not resist leaving it in the box... figured I'd check it all out, and determine which retracts, etc... to buy so I have everything by winter. Cool looking plane. Yup... will be converted to electric... 8-)

That should be a nice flyer. Looks good. Ted has the Horizon Me-109 with a motor I recommended and it flys good.

Not much of an update but at least the motor is mounted ;)
Hope to get working on this in time for the flying season.

This guy makes some cool CNC parts for such things as brushless motor mounts like the one I used in the pic... He also sells on Ebay and sometimes offer free shipping.

That is a great kit and a nice size. I like the glass fuselage. I would like to see that and the big Mitsubishi Zero A6M5 fly someday. I built that model in a slightly smaller size all scratch. I have the Bf 109- G-6 version. I never did fly it though. Too pretty.

Thx Bob... I myself would love to see the Zero fly once again... after it's last hard landing (OK, crash!)... I bought a new kit just for the wing I damaged... maybe I'll get working on it again in the upcoming months, time will tell. ;)

Havve not seen you much since last winter. Have you been flying? How are the warbirds doing?

Hey Bob!...
Yeh, I need to retire like you guys! ;) 5 yrs and counting...

Actually, I have in fact been working on the BF-109F Wings at least... all 6 servos and 2 retracts worth... ;)
L/R Ailerons, Flaps and split drag brakes... got all the mechanics sorted out, including a custom electric retract tail-wheel.
Just need to sort out mechanics in fuselage (2 servos for rudder and elevator)... then get figure out where to mount batteries for good CG (looking like right over wing tube which would be cool)

I'll try to post a few more pics soon... it's going to be a pretty plane when finished... nice detail out of the box.

Looks great. I forgot what Bf-109G series that actually started to have a retract tail wheel. The earlier Fritz was fixed. Probably after the Gustav G-6 series. They had planned on full wheel covers also to grab a bit more speed too. It was already to late.

Thanks Bob...
Supposedly, the "F" versions were fitted with semi-retractable tailwheels... The last production G-2s were fitted with the enlarged mainwheels and tailwheel (no retractable tailwheel due to lack of room) while the first of the G-4s used the smaller wheels with tailwheel retract. All K-4s were to be fitted with a longer retractable tailwheel ... and I think I read all A through D variants were fixed tailwheels.

Here's a quick vid... ;)
