I ordered too......looking forward to seeing which spinners/motors/retracts people use.

I've already got some of the v2 servoless retracts offered as a combo, so we'll see if they fit.

Would like to have gone folding props, but not sure I could find contra-rotating folding props?

Was planning to run 9x6 props on the 1250kV 3536 motors. Should be enough, I reckon about 700-800 watts total, on 3S.

Hi all, just signing up to the thread. I have ordered one of these beauties, I couldnt let it pass. Looks very nice in the photos and it should be interesting to see how nice they are when they finally show up.

To all the guys have ordered, be sure to show us some pics of the gear area when you get it, cannot see from all the pics on HK, but since I have not even flown the foamy yet, I might wait a little until ordering this one.

I am a little disappointed that it came in at that size. I also would have preferred a 1600mm plane, or even 1800. With plug in wings, it would have still been able to fit in a normal sized car..

Yes, 1:9 is becoming my favourite scale. That would make the model mozzie 1835mm. Wow that would turn some heads.
1200mm does fit nicely in the car with no need to remove the wings though.

"In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now! It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy. The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops. After the war is over I'm going to buy a British radio set - then at least I'll own something that has always worked."

Mine has turned up

and it's very pretty





A bit of a pig to get of the box the bags are glued and taped in but theres no damage so it worked.

I was going to go all out on a scale trip retracts etc. But now its hear I'm going to make it a high speed missile as it looks really streamline.

Hope everbody else's turn up soon.

I have being thinking seriously about this plane too.

Great to see it is of good quality and that you really got what was in the photograph .

I am curious about the weight. If you could state the weight it will be useful for me. An guesstimate of the wing loading would be appreciated.

I am also worried about the possibility of tail heaviness . This is a serious possibility with the Mossie (and its long tail) and a good probability with this one since it does look scale (unlike the rest)
