FMS P-51 V8 or V9's?

I was looking through a German RC web site and they are advertising v8's and v9's for sale, can any body tell me if FMS has these out on the market or what? I just bought a V7, not that it really matters I wont be sending it back either way I am just curious because I haven't seen them on any sites in the US. Oh and not to mention they are 1500mm not the 1400 or 1450's.

Here's the link

Well there is a few different sizes but one of them they say is from FMS is the V9 and it is 1500mm. I am not sure then name of the paint scheme is but it is the one with the yellow nose section and tail section with the Q on the tail. I guess I was more or less just asking if they were up grades of the V7. Thanks for they clarification Mike.

Rivet counters nightmare. That's why I got it.

Probably fly better with a 2 blade prop. It's beautiful.

I bought my "Red Tail" P-51 also in the V9 Version from Lindinger in Austria. BUt I found out that the european V9 version based on the V7 (rest of the world) Version. So my V9 version have still the normal door sequencer (not the new slower one).
To be honest, a really stupid system from FMS. Just my two cents.

What is stupid...the door sequencer? Are you saying it's unnecessarily complex?

I'm a HUGEMUNGOUS fan of some FMS stuff, and not so much on other things. Haven't been in the hobby for much more than a year and I see them trending toward improvement overall. I think they got the sweetest Mustangs and Zero's hand's down.

Their distribution CS has improved exponentially.

Yeah..Okay. Need some brand consistency. Looks like a marketing trick got out of hand.

I just hope they don't leave 7 and 7.5 owners out in the cold like the V6 guys with no interchangeable parts. With the new V8 and the reputation for a good flying plane, I see no reason for a major revamp.

Then again, look at what PZ did to the V1 Corsair guys. Took a perfectly good flying plane and discontinued it. PZ don't screw up often, but a lot of guys weren't as happy with V2.

V7, 7.5 and 8 are all the same plane. all the parts are interchangeable. Just minor improvements. V6 had plug in wings which were very weak and one spar

Thx Shung, exact what I mean. I like the FMS stuff really but I will not buy anymore because as a european customer you ever get the "old stuff" for more money than our USA firends have to pay

Not with me anymore.

I have already 3 of them in stock but thx for the hint :=). R2Fly canceled near all FMS models from there shop some time ago and now the start again ?! No I will wait if FMS will change ther delivery strategy. In other case I am sure I found a way to invest my hobby budget
