Hello fellow modelers & pilots. About a year ago I decided to try my hand at doing an electric conversion of a Guillows #402 P-51 Mustang. As a kid the Guillows kit introduced me to the buliding techniques necessary to make a flying model. Fast forward 100 years and this kit still is teaching me a few thing or two! After much trial and more error, I finally built an airwothy model that looks cool and flys "arrow straight". This is also my first attempt at a build thread, so be nice and don't laugh at me too hard -I just want to pass on what I learned to others who may be taking on a similar endeavor.
I have to give much credit to "Smokin Beaver" for his valuable feedback & encouragement to keep me working on this model until I got a successful flight. Here's the link that serves as the gold standard for Guillows conversions.
