Fitted 30 amp esc. My buddy did not and so far his has remained very cool with T-25 prop and 35C packs.

I am using 1300. 1800 and 2100 mAh with very good vertical - Straight up and almost out of sight on fresh packs.

Eflite S75 is my favorite micro though.
I dropped a spare S75 in for my rudder mod. It works fine, but it's a much slower responding servo that the stock PZ servos installed in the plane.

Someday I will replace it with something faster, but right now I am not doing anything to warrant a better servo, so I'll just fly it and Njoy

Formation flying is a bit of a passion of mine lately. (See last edition of MA) A great day today flying with a Sea Fury, a Corsair and two PZ Mustangs.

[QUOTE= Needs a lot of down when inverted but still stable. Looks great flying by low fast or slow. Simple to land.[/QUOTE]

I noticed this tonight too and though it was just me.

I have already moved all clevis' in from furthest hole (5th) on CS horns to in one (4th on control surface horn, not servo horn) for a little more snap. I am going to try the next hole in (3rd hole) for a little more elevator. Then maybe it will actually climb inverted. I dunno, we'll see tomorrow :P

Love the formation shots!! That's my favorite thing to do too!! Just hard to find guys who communicate what they're doing. You'll be right with em then they suddenly bank turn and ruin the whole formation. It's better if the guys flying stand together and the leader calls the moves, "gentle turn right, shallow climb, low pass and break for landing".

Anyway, here's some Gunfighter inspiration for ya'll:

[QUOTE=GiusedtoBe]Does this plane have the same ESC/ 27 Mhrz Rx single unit that the older PZ stuff has? I haven't seen it but they list an 18A brushless ESC on their parts list and the Rx/ESC brick is the same part number as the old stuff. Is this setup w/ the old electronic brick with a brushless ESC that plugs into it?

Thanks,
Alan[/QUOTE

Little help here?

Thanks,
Alan

Just maidened my new stang this morning, ive been training on my 4 ch cessna 182 from parkzone so i was really shaky,
Wind was 12-15 mph if i was smart i would have waited for less wind but had to try her out, this was the first low wing plane ive ever flew.
Hand tossed her,she went toward the ground but i got her back up, she flew great , shes totaly stock ex i put in a 2.4 gh tx and rx , i did to rolls and 1 loop then i said that was enough for the maiden because it was to windy for me, she landed perfect.
The only question i got is why is this bird so nose heavy , i had every level but just wanted to nose down even when i trimed it in flight ?
Thanks for any input

Mine is on the nose heavy side too but it makes it very stable so I don't mind.

You will have to do a bit of trimming to the fuse to get the bigger battery packs in there. Are you looking for longer flight times or higher performance?

Putting the Corsair ESC in is a piece of cake - they are visually identical. Well, except for the sticker on them.

The bigger battery is going to make her even more nose heavy, so watch out for that.

Glad to hear you got her down safe. That is pretty dang windy for a maiden! Nose heavy seems to be a common ailment.
