P-51 Blue Nose flew great EXCEPT that it has a terrible left kick on takeoff the likes of which I have never experienced. I pulled off prop/spinner/backplate and put a shim between firewall and motor mount and it was better but still too much left kick. Will have to put in double what I already put in to make a difference I think. But it flies like a champ in the air and on landing.

B-2 tried to maiden again and the nose wheel kept folding under as soon as I would move about 5 feet. Arrrrrrgh!

F-18C remaidened and crashed for the third and last time. Something wrong with electronics somewhere! Flew great for a couple of passes and then spiraled to 5 feet and caught it and flew it upside down for about 10 feet and then it crashed to ground...Good Riddance to bad electronics.

B-2 maidened and wouldn't take off due to too much weight to balance it. It tore off landing gear doors and one main landing gear came off but easy fix. Will try again.

FMS P-51 Blue Nose (given by Olflyer...thanks man!) was fixed and all control surfaces cut off and hinged with HK black hinges. Ready to maiden.

Yet to start on the Jaws Jet.
