HI-RES IMAGES:

CMP DeHavviland Mosquito 25~32 - 73" Nitro Gas Radio Remote Controlled Twin Engine Scale RC Warbird Airplane.  The 73" Mosquito ARF is a great scale airplane for anyone who likes scale flying. The kit includes a fiberglass fuselage, center section, and cowling done in matching paint. The wings are sheeted foam, covered with solartex, painted to match. All control surfaces have beveled leading edges and the control horn mounts are preinstalled. The kit includes full color decals.
 


The kit box is large, with all the major parts well packed in a light foam wrap and clear plastic bags. Slots in the interior cardboard held all items tightly in place, producing a sample of this product for review that will produce no damage from shipping.  Included with the kit are 8-ounce fuel tanks, engine mounts, wheels, hardware, pushrods, clear plastic canopy and nose cone, decal sheet, one-piece fiberglass cowls, and fixed wire landing gear. You will need to purchase some building supplies, engines, spinners, servo extensions, and a radio. Mechanical retracts are an interesting option to consider.  The quality of the materials is excellent with a one-piece fiberglass fuselage/fin straight and true. The 11-page instruction manual has excellent-quality step-by-step drawings.

Pluses:

• Well engineered—all parts fit together nicely.

• Handsome painted finish and full-color decal sheet.

Details and Recommendations:

Type: Semiscale ARF

Pilot Skill Level: Intermediate

Wingspan: 73 inches

Wing area: 1,286.5 square inches

Length: 52.5 inches

Weight: 11-11.5 pounds

Wing loading: 20.6 ounces per square inch

Engine: .25-.32 (two-stroke) or .26-.30 (four-stroke)

Radio: Five- to six-channel transmitter, seven to nine servos (rudder, elevator, flaps, one for each aileron, one for each throttle, one for each optional retract)

Construction: Molded fiberglass fuselage, tail sections, wing center-section, and engine nacelles with light-plywood support, balsa-and-plywood wing panels and sections

Covering/finish: Three-color flat-finished camouflage paint over fiberglass, film covered wings and tail

Options: Retractable landing gear (Not Included)


Construction: Model assembly begins with attaching the ailerons to the wings using cloth-style hinges provided in the kit. The engine nacelle splits the flaps on each wing panel, which are connected with a U-shaped joiner wire. The flaps are attached after the wing sections are joined, to make their alignment easier to match.

            The wing is composed of a center-section and two outer panels. The outer panels and control surfaces are built-up wooden structures, and the center-section is a fiberglass shell with a plywood skeleton.

            Two aluminum tubes—measuring 87/16 inches in length and 3/4 inch in diameter—installed with epoxy are used as spars to permanently join the outer panels to the center-section with a slight amount of dihedral.

            The aileron servos are installed in the outer panels before the wing is joined.

            Four plywood formers give interior support to the fuselage’s one-piece fiberglass mold; the exterior seam joining the top and bottom is intelligently hidden with a change in paint color. The wing mates nicely with the fuselage’s saddle area using a notch and groove that ensures alignment. Three hefty metal screws are used to hold the wing in place.

            The elevator halves are an airfoil-shaped, wood-frame construction. An aluminum tube that measures 615/16 inches in length and 3/8 inch in diameter joins the fiberglass stabilizer halves. The aluminum tube passes through a hole that must be cut through the sides of the molded fuselage.        Each elevator half is connected to the ends of a Y-shaped pushrod.

            Similar to the elevator halves, the rudder has an airfoil-shaped wood frame.

*RETRACT NOTE*
The retract bays are built into the wing from the factory, so the retracts will drop right in.



 


 

 

Engine Installation: Mounting the engine is fairly simple. Two-piece engine mounts (provided in the kit) are used to hold each O.S. .32 SX. The power plants are side-mounted so that the stock muffler vents to the lower side of the engine nacelles. Use a Dremel Moto-Tool to carefully carved away areas of each cowl so they could fit over the engine/muffler and give access to the fuel filler, carburetor port, and needle valve.
 

 

Finishing: The NitroPlanes.com Mosquito ARF is covered with Solartex that has been professionally spray-painted with flat military colors: gray/green camouflage on the top and all light gray on the bottom.

            The finish job is exceptional; all painted surfaces matched perfectly. Panel lines are embedded on all fiberglass parts.  The quality and quantity of included decals are excellent. They are made from a stick-on material and have a flat finish to match the paint.







 

The NitroPlanes.com Mosquito is a top-quality ARF that ought to be on your buy list. You will not be disappointed and you will be the envy at your flying field.[dingbat]
