So you are looking for a belly lander? Or something with landing gear? What are your field conditions? Grass, dirt, street? TW

Highly recommend the P-47. Great flying plane. I love it so much I have over 7 hours of pure flight time on it since July lol.

The T-28, P-47, Spitfire and the P-51 are excellent choices.

The best flight envelope and best parkzone that I have flown and own is the p-47 with flaps and retracts.

I really like my P-51 with a Power 10 and MAS 10x7e prop. It crazy fast and just looks so killer in the air. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to accept retracts and flaps like the P-47. That's why I'm saving for a PZ P-47 with all the bells and whistles! LOL!

Hopefully PZ comes out with a updated blue nose P-51. I would go ape poop!!!

Tw these are good questions we need answers to before we can give advice. One more is, what kind of experience?

Hey guys, thanks for all the answers. My field conditions are mostly grassy, but we do have a dirt runway. And I don't really have a preference as to weather is has landing gear or not. And lastly my experience with rc, I have been flying rc helis for over a year, I now fly a 500 size electric heli, can do everything up to begginner 3d, and I have flown planes before with success, guys at the field let me have a go with there planes, all 4 channels, and I made a mistake and bought a cheapy 4 channel corsair from hobbyking and flew it a couple times with success before the elctronics crapped out. Again, thanks for all the suggestions so far.

just get the one that you like the looks of best. They all fly equally well. They all just have slightly different characteristics. The T-28 and Stryker are virtually stall-proof though.

I like it because it's not the prettiest, and you don't see many at the field. It is also historically important, as it helped win back the pacific from the Japanese, how important was the battle of Midway, Coral Sea, and Guadalcanal!

It is one of parkzones best flying warbirds, such an easy plane to hand launch, handles most aerobatics with aplomb, and has no bad habits to boot.

I would have to say the P-47. In the kit it gives you a nice plastic cover for belly landings and you can fit retracts and flaps.... have the best of both worlds.

I have lost count the amount of flight on my p-47. Just a good all round plane.

I wish the Corsair and BF 109 came with retract options as well.

I'd also have to say just to pick the one that looks best to you or is the most interesting for you, historically. I've had or have the T-28, Corsair, 109, P-47 and SE-5a, and each is a great flyer, with slightly different characteristics. I've also picked up the Spitfire (the plane that I think is the best-looking and also my very favorite, historically), which I expect to maiden soon. You can be confident that whichever one you pick, you'll be pleased . . .
