Gunfighter! - The official Parkzone P-51 Mustang BL thread

Airframe Bulletin #001

There are reports of elevator hinges on the PZ P-51 BL failing catastrophically in flight. Hinges should be inspected before each flight, however it is unclear if impending failure will be obvious. Recommend an application of hinge tape to the elevator to prevent failure.

I am going to go ahead and jump the gun just a tad and start this thread up. Why? Because I have been pretty dang stoked about this plane since I heard about it from a Horizon phone rep that slipped up and told me what the new plane was going to be a couple months before the official announcement.

I will have one as quickly as humanly possible while trying to steer my business to my local hobby shop.

So, here we go! Post your stories of airborne glory or mud-bound misery. Post your tips, mods, pictures, comments and questions.

Remember, the "firsts" will have special bragging rights - first pictures, first video, first smash-up, first killer mod, first re-paint....
