I hope it does. Don't like the way she looks in the air with a set of wheels hanging out from under her.

I'm sorry I lost my civility in my previous post. All the unwarranted negative comments got to me.
One of the main reasons I will pay the premium price for HH products is they are designed and engineered in house, in the United States. They are not just another distributer.

I have been a Parkzone fan for years, but I have been less than impressed as of late. You can get an FMS Corsair with all of these expensive upgrades for $100 less. Also, FMS has a bigger plane and more scale features and it took years for Parkzone to do what others have been doing for a while now and you still have to buy the components seperately.

I would buy one...But I already own 2 Durafly, and they're great in my opinion. They cost me less than $150 to my door, each. Recievers are $7, batteries are about $9 each. I'm set.

Some of you might know i have a good few PZ warbirds and no doubt i will still be buying them it they keep coming out with NEW ones.

I don't think this one will kill off the Durafly one at all,because you get flaps,retracts and LED lights with the Durafly one, unlike the PZ one where you will have to spend a few more quid/bucks on the retracts and servos for the flaps and if you want LED's even more money ok not a lot for LED's but it all adds up right.

Which will take you well past what the Durafly Corsair would cost,so i'm thinking there will always be people out there that would rather go over to Hobbyking to buy the Durafly Corsair to save money.

No i'm not bashing PZ or bigging Durafly up but just saying what i think to be true.

Sits back and wait for the flaming to start.

Will the extra weight change her flight characteristics (gotta fly faster?)

I understand the older version had fairly trainer-like handling when needed. Is that changing much with the new model? (More P-51 ish?)

HobbyKing has good prices at first glance, but a $30 shipping fee for a plane is kinda steep.

A++++ I'm a Durafly convert. After I crashed my PZ Corsair beyond repair I picked up a Durafly Corsair. MUCH MUCH better quality and value.

Pass on all PZ products if Durafly has similar model!!

Everything is a trade off.
Agreed 100%. Customer Service sucks. The cheap prices make up for that though. If I get a bad unit I toss it. I'd never ship something back to HK.

Parts are another issue. I backordered a few props. The good thing with the foamy planes is that glue can fix almost anything. Also they are so cheap you can just salvage what you have after a bad crash and get a new one. They you"ll have parts. I also never order planes from the HK warehouse. US only. Minimize shipping duration and damage.

That sucks. You should have made it more clear in the title and in the first post that you wanted it clean.

I just looked to see who did it, it wasn't who I expected.

I do have a PZ Me 109 that has a motor that was a guaranteed blow up if you flew it a lot though so they have some of their own problems too.

Sometimes, I just wish I could turn off my "want" switch and just wait it out for the second batch after all the problems are ironed out.
Oh please!!!! I've seen plenty PZ Corsairs Gator up in the sun. A few Spits too being they are dark green in spots.

ANY EPO foam plane will bubble up given enough heat.
