If this plane is anything like the E-flight P-38, as long as the CG is right and both motors are running it will be a pussycat! I wish the props were C/R.
I'll be watching to see how you guys make out!
Gool Luck

Looks great!

Did you get it from a retail source, or wholesale? I couldn't find any consumer level sales stuff for JPower....

Rodan...He's probably going to do a review, so most likely it's coming right from Jpower.

Hmmm... I was hoping for a source other than BH. Several local friends have had... less than satisfactory experiences...

Pete at Banana Hobby is great promoter, but the ads for the planes he sells, like that P38, are obviously full of hype and Chinglish. He obviously tries to find good stuff, but his budget is tight and he doesn't have a good support system. Sometimes airframes are okay with tinkering (you have to know how to do it). Other stuff is chancy, and you're on your own. Icky

MAS makes 10x7x3s In Pusher and Tractor(C/R).
I don't know about the GWS props. They never seemed to work for me!

M...I agree there on the flimsy side, but if mas has them thats good news. I checked and mas carries the pusher and tractor in 9x7x3 and 10x7x3. It's good to have options !!!

Ding ding ding ... you are CORRECT!

I do not think the wings are removable on the P38. Unless you intentionally re-engineer it to be that way? I suppose anything is possible.

Strangely, I do not think Banana is necessarily backing the review? They have yet to work with RCG on having their stuff "reviewed", I guess they prefer to do it "in-house"? I have been in touch with JPower for a while now and after reviewing the AMX from HL, I talked to them about their upcoming projects. I first saw the new A10 way back at RCX and talked to Pete about my interest in reviewing it. However, both the A10 and P38 were sent to me direct from the manufacturer.

You think the P38 andA10 are cool?! Wait til you see what J has up his sleeve next!
