YES!! Still building up the nerves for an inverted low pass.

Knife Edge is what I'm working on now, but I think I need more rudder throw. Anybody here getting good KE's? And what is the amount of deflection you're getting? Mine just kinda started dropping once in a knife edge. Of course now that I think about it, I was using a Dualsky 2200map 25C which isn't the lightest of batteries. Maybe the weight caused the drop.

Hi

Hi guys, I'm new to the Parkzone Mustang and was wondering if this is a good second plane after the Hobbyzone Super Cub? Another thing I wanted to know is, is this plane fixable with just hot glue?

Thanks and sorry for interrupting your ongoing discussion.

I think the best thing to do if the CUB was your first RC plane ever is add ailerons to the cub get comfortable with that and then move to the Stang. The Trojan and Corsair are a little more forgiving IMO though.
No such thing as interupting in a Parkzone forum. Welcome to the fleet.
You can use hotglue, but depending on the melt temp you may distort the foam. Not the best choice but will work.
CA with an activator or "kicker" is better
Epoxy works too.
Gorilla Glue works but expect it to expand.

I agree 100% with that! I bought the SC flew it until I felt comfortable (bored) with it then added ailerons, brushless motor and straightened the wing. I STILL love my SC and take it out every time I go to the field. The Mustang was my 2nd plane because, at over $180.00 a crack, I didn't have the money to keep buying more planes. It is a VERY repairable plane. I have 1 fuselage (my "practice" plane)that has been cracked in two at least 5 times and it still flies straight and true (although, I should probably get a beefier motor with all the extra epoxy weight) After the 4th repair on it I went and bought the Airframe

So far hot glue is holding up better than anything I have tried so far!!!! Its holding the fuse together right now. I broke it into 3 peices!!!! My brother broke his wing atleast7 or 8 times and it was all becktogether with hot glue. It stronger than the foam and just as flexable, Oh and dont let me forget its cheap and very easy to obtain

I went to the pz corsair as my second plane after the SC with the mustang being my 3rd plane I did not think it was a big transition to the corsair from the SC, but I made sure I was comfortable with the SC first

My brother flew the supercub for 2 days then bought the corsair and can fly the crap out of it. I couldnt belive he was flying a 4 channal warbird on his 3rd attempt at flying and did very well. 4 months later he is now beating me in dog fighting. He is also learning 3d too. He is a natural. Not a biggy to go from a supercub to a PZ warbird like the mustang,corsair,or trojan. All tyou need to know is HOW ailerons affect the plane as it rolls it instead of the rudder turning it like the SC does. Once you have that your good to go. These plane have no bad tendancies

I believe it is. Start out with low rates, belly land it whereever it's safe in the field.

Crashed my P-51D last night. It was about a 50 yards out and stopped responding. When I got to the crash cite the receiver was making a beeping sound and not responding to command from TX. Motor and ESC and receiver tested out fine on the work bench later last night.

Any Ideas? I was thinking it the receiver and I might change it out for an AR6100.

Lots of damage but I have already glued it back together. Now I'm waiting a cowling cover and spinner.

Note: This plane went in nose first about 40-50 feet up and the T-28D prop survived. Hit so hard the Pilot broke free of the seat, fuselage broke off at the wing. Cowling and Spinner were in 30 pieces. Nice Prop

No problem, I used silicone (Permatex Ultra Black) when I built my second gunfighter. Check your RX, mine would loose bind and flash and beep at me then it progressed to the aileron freak out mode. If it turns out being the RX get a hold of Horizon support ASAP and they will take care of you.

EDIT: Sorry to hear about your crash!
