That Cub has been repaired a few times in the two years I've been at the club!

P40 arrived today. Tracking showed delivery tomorrow, so I just went down to the post office and picked it up myself today. Little bit of shipping damage, but here is a quick shot fresh out of the box. Just the fuselage suffered damage at the rear. Easily fixed.

Aghhh! What about the poor pilot..? Looking for a way out?

Was it packed in the usual foam cradled box (as big a small refrigerator) or some other means?

Foam crate. The corner was blown out. It was poorly ductaped together to prevent parts from falling out.

I got the second to last. There were two in stock when ordered. Then it went to 1 and someone must have snagged that one. I expect that I will be quite happy with this airplane. I may have to order the other scheme if I can, just to have in the box for a repaint, or spare parts.

I ordered 7 HS82MG servos, along with a bunch or 9g carbon gear servos, and a few 5 gram servos. I can't see running 9 gram servos just to open and close gear doors, but I've got several different sizes to try. I can totally understand a 9g for tailwheel steering.

My CC questions amp BEC came today, along with some other doodads.

Making a new park. I have a dream of taking my new P40 down there on a sunny afternoon. I'll take some photos of it next to one of the new park benches. It's hoped they will be made from demo timber by local school students. No harm in dreaming.

One things for sure. This plane will inspire.

Steve was invited to take his massive RC Jodel down there by the council when they were discussing ideas for the site. Seemed like a good idea so he did. Someone asked him when he was going to take-off. "What....down the main street ?" The next thing he knew some little girl with an ice cream in her hand sat on the wing !
Never again.

Hugely enjoyable video with some class planes.
Warbird Meeting REEBGNORZ *Full Movie* (41 min 57 sec)

Now go back to that P40 (28.00) and tell me this HK P40n has no merit. Only $137.00 for a kit.
In NZ we have two games. Rugby and Rugby League. The two games have been feeding off one another for some time. Both games improving as a result. Notice how there wasn't one electric plane there. Odd ?
