I think this will be the closest distributor to you Manu. Its in Germany but they don't have a distributor in Belgium.

Steff, this one is in France, so shipping should be relatively low if you can't get there in person.

I didn't see it listed on the sites yet but the plane is still fresh and may show up once we see Banana Hobby shipping its supply.

I will suggest giving them a call and see if they have an eta and if you can pre order through them. Just because the website isn't up to date doesn't mean they wont have info for you that may get you one in hand quicker.

That California Cutie is sweet! Todd- isn't that the scheme you have on your EF P-38?

I'll wait to order. The part about 20 minute flight times tells me I'll have to hear from users to believe!

I do hope it's good though. I love the P-38!

I spent one evening working on the P-38 tonite. I did not use any epoxy ... yet. I wanted to get it all dry fit, with all of the servos and controls hooked up, before I started gluing it up.

There are a LOT of servo wires that get run into the receiver on this one. I am going with a Spektrum AR500 five channel receiver. I am hoping to get her in the air Friday.

(Yeah, I know .... it looks like I have the vertical stabs reversed .... right?)

Thanks !

Looking forward for the maiden...

Can you confirm that the outer wings are not meant to be removable for transport ?

Is the green really that vibrant and the turbos really that orange looking or is it just the camera? Looks good and I can't wait to hear how it flies and if everything works on it that should.
