Question
Release date for the Parkzone P-51 Gunfighter?

Does anyone have an update on the release date for this plane? Both the Hobbyzone and the Parkzone sites are saying late June, but someone the other day said a site was still saying June 11.

I called Horizon, but the rep sounded like they were just reading off the web site. Maybe John or Dave or someone else from HH can let us know.

I have one supposedly on order at my LHS, but they don't seem to be up-to-the-minute on these things. I would like a better idea of the actual release date so I know when to pester them incessantly.

I want a new toy! There is an electric fly-in locally in just a week and a half, and I would LOVE to have the P-51 to show off.

Also, what is the absolute fastest way to get one in my hands? Order from Horizon? Order from another on-line site? Or camp out at the LHS?

A good local hobby store will get them in stock before Horizon will ship to an individual who has one on back order with them. At least that has been the case with past products.

Awww, rats!

Oh well, at least we have a date instead of just "late June."

Wish Dave or John would show up...

We're planning to ship to dealers on the 25th.

Dates on the web are likely to bounce around as we approach that date due to technical issues with our IT system. So, if all of a sudden it starts showing July or August or any other time frame, don't be alarmed.

Nothing more patriotic that flying our new Parkzone Mustang on the 4th of July weekend! Glad to know they will be in stores in time for that to happen.

Yeah but one could make the case that flying a model made in America might be more patriotic...
