Today when I arrived home after work a parcel was waiting for me :-)

My Parkzone BL P-51 Mustang! I have been wanting a warbird for some time, and this one seems to fit the bill for the cost and performance level (so I hear). I was wanting a bigger model like the Banana Hobbies 63" P-51, however I decided this Parkzone should be my first real intermediate plane in a long time to continue learning to fly.

I immediately installed the rudder option with a spare JR DS-235 servo I had kicking around. That was pretty straight forward and simple to do. I ended up having to reverse the Ailerons and the Rudder in the DX6i. I fine tuned the control surfaces so they were zero t the eye and in the TX trim.

I bought 2 x 1300 mAh batteries for this, however may purchase the 1800, or try to fit in my 2200 mAh, which I hear are a bit large for this plane... No idea yet...

Other than that, not much to say that hasn't been already said, other than I'm excited to fly this soon!

Any Further tips and hints are greatly appreciated
