Here's the assembled, as-supplied propeller unit, installed on the Hellcat's nose.

My first-ever build of one of the original Comet 'Speed-O-Matic' props. Note the period-correct accessories!

Another one salvaged from eBay; some prior owner had cut out the fuselage formers and started glueing together the top & bottom longerons. Fuselage is now finished. On to the wings...

Damage is motor mount, and right wing. Its nearly repaired already. Next attempt will have about 3 degrees down thrust, a couple of notches of down elevator trim and the cg moved forward a little. I'll launch it with about 3/4 throttle instead of full since I'd ather it sag into the ground than zoom and stall.

First flight attempt was not so good. It zommed up at about a 60 degree angle to about 20 feet, stalled then rolled right and came straight down. First flights on a new design are difficult since you don't reall knoe cg location. elevator trim angle and, in this case, down thrust. The real Hellcat has considerable down thrust which isn't shown on the Comet plans and probably should be.

Now that we have a pilot it is ready to fly. Will try tomorrow if the weather holds.
