I just run the stock ESC and prop. The best thing is that you can get decent 1000mah 3 cell batteries for 4 dollars, so you can get a heap of batteries for them for cheap and get a lot of flights.

For the money they are really good bang for bucks, and really good fun.
Thanks! I enjoy the smaller planes and currently have a PZ UM Spit. It's just too small for me and the 800mm sounds like a nice step up for almost the same price.

Don't compare the UM's to the 800's. The PZ UM's are boring compared to the FMS 800mm series planes. In a class of their own. Great detail, fast on 3s, very affordable, and you can fit a lot of them in your car! I have to say that they are my favorite parkflyer plane. Have 5 of them and I'm not done yet! So what are you waiting for? Buy one!

Me as well, its perfectly fixable, clean breaks in the nose department, and broken motor mount. It's a v1 though, and I already have two of the camo'd v2's and a green checker tail v1, so it was resigned to the scrap yard/ winter projects box.

If your interested Shoot me a pm and i can make a detailed accounting of the contents. There are others not shown and in other boxes.

Off the top of my head,

2 pkz f4u1a airframe
1 pkz fw190a8 airframe
1 1400mm p47 v1 airframe and guts
1 1400mm p40 v1 airframe and guts
1 800mm p40 v1 air frame
1 dynam 1100mm j3 cub airframe
1 umx p40 airframe and guts
1 umx spitfire airframe and guts
1 umx ccub air frame and guts
1 apprentice s airframe
2 apprentice airframes and guts

And too keep it on topic, couple pics of some of the other birds from this morning:

Like the look of the spit and 109-those are the 650mm from hobbyking right?
Very curious on how they fly-been tempted by them more than a few times.
