Got everything together for possible flight tomorrow and did a ground run and checked amps, wattage, and thrust. Using a 6s pack gives just over 14lbs of thrust, 7s gives 16lbs. The stock setup pulled 8.5lbs. Gonna start out with 6s. Should be plenty. On the ground the amp draw is 91 and the wattage is almost 2000 watts. Amp draw should be lower in flight. It sure makes a racket.

It looks like I’m going to be building another Big Ass P-40 for the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe, Louisiana. General Chennault grew up in that area. He created and commanded the Flying Tigers in WW2.

I visited his museum a couple of weeks ago and met General Chennault’s granddaughter. She is the curator. The biggest P-40 model they had was a 36 inch wingspan at best. They had a 5th scale P-47 and 1/4 scale Stinson.

This was General Chennaults Flying Tigers Museum and I did not see a Big Ass P-40 with a 7 foot wingspan like mine. They needed a Big Ass P-40.

When I got home, I emailed General Chennault's granddaughter with a proposal with pics of my P-40 and price to produce a static Big Ass P-40.

She wants it. This is gonna be cool. The journey begins...

This is probably what the Chennault Museum P-40 is going to look like. It's the livery of David "Tex" Hill. He was General Chennault's right hand man. He ended his career as a Brigidier General. The number may change if we end up going this route. Waiting to hear back from the museum board.

The Scorpion Powered Big P-40 is done with makeover less some retract fine tuning, lower engine cowl, and engine audio system. May take it up this weekend.
