What is SLC?

Hello Charles
                        Yes SLC can be painted,I used on a ringmaster and was pleased with the results. I scuffed it a little bit and will be priming the whole plane. The paint scheme is still in the air  I like the Rockwell international paint job but due to the location of the wing in the center of the fuse makes it impossible to place a decal in the proper position. I have a few P-51 Mustang books but don`t want a complex paint job.

While videos get cropped and spliced and edited and first thought was that you need to get the engine warmed up before you set the NV. Some guys do not warm up the engine before launch, but they do the same thing every flight, and usually get away with it, once they get a good setting. Unless, of course, it bites them in the hindquarters!  Layingdown Steve
Yes. I feel ya'.
Old engine on new plane and new type of tank so pardon my haste to see if it would fly. I'd rather be a wee fast than doggy rich in wind.

Actually, I'm happy you asked that.  I try to go between about 4.1 and then down to about 30%.  That said, the you don't want to run close to the 11 minutes calculated above as that should take you down from 4.2 fully charged.  Break in is not fully charged and not fully, meaning down to 20%, discharged.  About 90% to about 30% remaining seems reasonable with +/- 5%.  I haven't seen science on those numbers, but to stay away from the extreme ends.  My not seeing a hard number doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

So, if 4.1 is about 90% and you go to about 30% remaining, 60% out is 60*27 is about 1620 out.  About 10 minutes at 157/minute.  Try 8 - 9 and see what % is remaining, or what voltage remaining depending on charger capability.  You can always add an increment of discharge more, better than oops, to far.

I found a bit of variation on the internal resistance of cells when the batteries came from the factory and was surprised as TP uses "balanced" cells, from what I read.  2 soft cycles and the IRs were quite close.

Why, yes you can! (no pun intended) 

Check out this thread. There are a couple of places listed throughout. Post # 1 and #4 for starters.

Nice to see you back on your Mustang.

Looking really good.  Hoff

I know nothing about SLC except what I read. Can that material be painted?

If so, do you have a scheme picked out for your Mustang?

Looks like paint isn't all that far down the road.

             Today I was able to finally glue the wing on my P-51.I was careful of the wing and elevator aligment used Robart incidence meters and measured to keep everything square. I covered the wing in SLC which saved me a lot of work. I had to be careful because you can have air bubbles when you overlap it and they are hard to see. I used scotchbrite on the covering before placing it on the wing a tip that I learned reading the controline forums. I covered the left side wing with wax paper to protect it from the epoxy I had already applied to the wing hole in the fuse.I already have the all the other parts almost ready for primer need more sanding. I still need to make a gas tank and wheel farings. I hope I can do a lightweight paint job. Engine is clean and ready to test on the bench before placing it on the plane. here are pics.
