Does anyone know what is happening with the FW190A8 and the Dora-9 (http://cdn-www.airliners.net/photos/photos/0/6/5/1193560.jpg) ( http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif) at Flugwerk (http://www.flugwerk.de/fw190.shtm)???

I'm afraid my German is more than a little rusty and there never seems to be any knew pictures or videos - the last video i saw was this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJLe_qTMFd4) one of the A8 on a test circuit with it's gear down and that was quite a while ago...

Do you know why he didn't retracted his gears?
Is that FW in 1:1 scale?

BTW luv the taxiing at ~1:58.......

I seem to recall reading that they had produced two Fw-190D replicas but had to use Allison engines. I'll try to recall where I read that and provide a link.

I think it is standard procedure to leave the landing gear lowered on a maiden test flight. It is definitely a 1:1 scale replica also.

Shame about the ASH-82 spoiling the looks of these new Fw190s though.

What looks? Aside from a slight bit of a difference on the intake its hard to tell the difference.

well read about the Dora in English then, scroll down the page, it is in both languages

DKoor it is standard on initial airtests to leave the gear down, you are not exploring the upper end of the flight regime so you leave it down allowing you to check all the systems out..... would be a bit of a red face if you whipped the gear up on take off and then found issues with the hydraulic systems as you test everything else which could result in a long low slide on return http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yes they are full size and built to the original drawings with a different engine (ash) that was a chinese copy of the original item.

If my recollection serves me right http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif I seem to remember reading the ASH engine used by Flugwerk is some 3 Inches greater in diameter than the original.

My old boss back in Baton Rouge is building an A-8. His initial purchase was from a museum and it was in bad shape. He then began working with Flugwerks to complete it. IIRC there are very few original parts, something like 4 or 5 pieces. Everything else was either purchased from Flugwerks or fabricated (mostly on site). I saw it 7 months or so ago and the wings, although not installed were a completely working assembly including landing gear, the tail feathers were installed and completely working, the engine was installed and had been test run on a stand prior to that, the canopy was installed, and the cockpit was mostly torn down. The instrument panels looked mostly complete with some wired up externally. If I get a chance I'll see if I can contact him and get a status report.

I do not think there are any external visible differences:

In fact being different engines the Ash-82T here and BMW are quite comparable. 14 Cylinders 42 liters instead of 41.8. Ash provides even a bit more power when comparing nominal powers of BMW - so in this regard it is quite a good choice knowing the availability of original BMW, much more appropriate than the Allison on their Dora-project...

Funny though I haven't heard anything this sommer but they were supposed to continue test flights actively - the previous years problem was mainly absence of test pilot on the Me 262 project flights...

I like the first pic. Very nice bird and background (if it's not edited).

Theres a definate difference to the slope of the coweling at the front, its much shaper than an original 190s coweling.
