Tom,

I picked up the White P-40 with the GWS BL outrunner for $60 and 4 HS-55 servos for $45... so for $105 shipped (epyaya) I got almost everything I needed to get her in the air...I keep looking at my EFlite 450 from my ME-109 (and I am using a 40 amp ESC in the P-40 so I can change if I want)...but I want to keep the weight down... but I do like my P-47 on the 480... so I am stuck between wanting power and speed but also wanting the ability for nice easy landings with no tip stalls from all the weight up front...

Pat

How in the bloody heck did you keep orientation?? Nice flyin... if you bend the LG forward a little it helps prevent the nose overs on landings. On my P-47 I did that and went with slightly larger foam wheels... never ends up on her nose anymore. My speed should be a little higher then yours since I am belly floppin and using the 2 blade so my weight will be a little less... I am still kicking around rudder/no rudder...
