Already thinking of a paint scheme I'd like to do, and im thinking "Flying Undertaker". It's always been one of my favorites.

Hmmm, has anyone thought of what scale it is? Seem there ought to be some plastic kits of the Mustang one could aquire for reference(and decals) that would be in scale with it.
Where does HH ship from? Isn't it Illinois?

I found a Job posting on google that read Champaign IL

Are you kidding me?

I bet employees get to test out planes that you never even see released.

Never mind first crack at the ones that do.

It's the payroll deductions that would be killer

Flight report!...
Well for your first flight dont try it in a small area with any wind...yesterday I thought I could fly it infront of work on the street..too many trees and gusty winds..no damage other than the spinner fell off..So this morning we took it to a park and had a blast..speed is very good for it size..the ailerons are very effective(read easy to over control)..with the stock controler it is very touchy..I fly all my planes with a bunch of expo so I am really a not used to it! but its a blast to fly..it slows down very well also..its fun doing landings on a baseball diamond then taxi back and take off again..rolls are nice and smooth and big loops are great..its a lot easyer to fly with it on a good radio like the 9303...we should have some vid a bit!

Can anyone recommended "first time" transmitter settings for a DX7? Are these included on the instruction sheet?

I plan on leaving the control arms at the stock position for a while.

I would consider the Sukhoi's settings as a start anyway. I know I will have two settings, docile and not so docile.

My stock setup for my Parkzone Birds including the Sukhoi with the DX7 is High Rate 100%. Low Rate 70% with 25% expo on both high and low. Has always given me a flyable bird and adjustments can be made later to suit your flying style.

What a dilemma.......

I go to my LHS and they have BOTH the Bf-109 and the Micro P51.... what to do..... what to do.

Long story short, my debit card is still smoking and I have 2 sweet new Park Zone aircraft added to my livery.

The quality of both of these additions are superb!
