FMS 190, P51(D/B) or 109

Okay guys need some help here. Can only get enough $$$ for one of these. I have the Zero and Stuka. We fly off grass, kept in good condition, are anyone of these better at grass fields. I have fly 3D, EDF and indoor so I fell I have the skill set needed. I am a little concerned with the P51, my favorite, as it seems their landing gear are weak. Any input???

I have the V7 P-51D and fly it off grass. No problems. I think with any etract equipped model, if you have tuff landings, or fly from a rough field, they will expire. I would say the 109 will have the worst gound handling of the three. I have the FW 190 and it is really good. I did replace bolth etracts when FMS came out with an improved set. I had one of the housings crack when I dorked a landing. Also the gear doors need to have the bottom trimmed abou 1/4 inch to keep them from breaking off. All three are good. If I were buying today, I would order up the P-51B.

The 190 is the best on grass, hands down. Nose over isn't in it's vocab

Ultimately just get which ever plane you like the most.
