For those interested, the sounds (especially when sitting idle on the tarmac) are incredible:

Finally some realistic sound for RC warbirds! That has always been the biggest problem for years. You could build the most realistic model and then the moment you start it up kind of ruins the whole experience. I have a 1/5 scale P51D Mustang and many others as well. I have since sold the Zenoah G45 engine and the Robart retracts from the Mustang as I just don't get out and fly anymore. Il2 is enough for me right now.

I want one, I want one!

That is very, very cool. Thanks for posting. Obviously a keen enthusiast, and out of the reach of most hobbiests but it is truly a thing of beauty, than TgD, brought a smile to my face.

I wish he would've shown the power supply for the engine. I only watched once, but weren't the batteries he showed for the sound system?

That is beautiful to hear and watch. Pretty amazing. Yeah, I've always been turned off when hearing RC warbirds sounding like....RCs. But its nice to see this guy take it a step further.

Does anyone know who these guys are or if there is a better quality version of this film?

Would love to contact them, cheers, MP.

It's a great looking model, and I really like the idea of trying to get a scale sound. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think that aeroplane would really benefit from a 4 bladed prop of reduced diameter and increased pitch (say 20x15, DxP) in order to reduce prop tip-speed and thereby reduce noise, since although the current design is rather conservative (184 m/s static tip speed), the actual prop noise is audible above the simulator in high speed flight; doubling the blade area would allow the rpm to be reduced by about 30% for the same thrust, which would greatly reduce noise at the expense increasing current draw by about 40%. Unfortunately, such props would probably be rather hard to come by...

A rate gyro in the rudder circuit might be useful to reign in the dutch-roll mode; there seemed to be some incipient snaking in certain phases of flight...

Wow.

I was also impressed by how agile the aircraft appeared. Too bad Republic couldn't have made it out of light wood plys and plastic to get it down to that scale weight and powered it to that scale power to weight. They'd have had a real war-winner on their hands then...

cheers

An interesting angle on RC aircraft that I'd never heard of before. Did you notice that about 5:10 into the vid a Swallow/House Marten/Swift attacked the plane. Proved in combat.

Incredible! Electric power is so much nicer than glow.

Love that rumbling radial engine sound during starting and takeoff.
