Got this plane shipped via USPS last week but they crunched the box and the main wing was destroyed. Still waiting on the claim. But i have replaced the main wing in the mean time. Took it out for a test flight today and it flew great! No in-flight pics (yet) but will have some soon. This plane came with a different connector than the rest of my batteries so i will be switching that over soon so both my planes can share batteries and the same balancing charger. Here is the one pic i did come home with!

Update: Got out again and got some more pics ...Continue Reading

Short time reader, first time blogger. I did the rudder mod to my pkz P-51D Mustang "Gunfighter"

1.) Parts! Push rod and servo. (testing the servo before installation)

2.) Installing the servo. (Glued with hot glue as per suggestion on this forum)

3.) Horn and Push rod installed and ready to go.

4.) Everything attached and ready to go. Cut out the little pieces of foam that hold the rudder in place. I also moved the rudder as far as it would go to one side and put packing tape along the open side of the hinge (repeat on opposite side). Read that these planes sometimes have failure in rudder so i wanted to make sure i beefed it up a little. Will be adding plastic hinges in the near future.
