Ahhh yup just got home with mine too. LHS had 6 RTF's and 1 BnF.
I was the first to get one of the six RTF's and the only BnF one another fella walking in behind me got.

So that leaves room for five other lucky souls in my area.

Ok, no time to talk...........gotta go eat now as I've put it off all day.

Aerobatics..does a good job but won't compete with the Sukhoi but looks more scale doing it than the Sukhoi. All in all an excellent flying plane.

Now that's what I'm talkin about!

Appreciate all the pics!

Thanks Mod!!

Thanks for the pics and review. I'm already planning the maiden flight will be in a large field with tall grass. Looks like Parkzone learned from feedback and no "box mod" is required. Unfortunately my LHS said next week but at least I have a deposit on one.

Wont be flying mine till over the weekend as weather permits. But I did her all out of course and checked all over and tested controls ect.

Boy I tell ya, if you'd of told somebody just five years ago that you'd be having a four channel P-51 that fits on your coffee table with plenty of room for coffee, manual, ashtray and yet another magazine too folks would say yer deaming. Well, dream is here.


The Tx is nice and comfortable in my hands, its a little bigger than the like styled PZ NTU Tx. And yes there is servo reversing, and dual rates, though you cant adjust the value you can switch it back and forth by simply pressing in on the right stick. By default the radio is on high rate, press in on the right stick and it switches to low rate and the pilot light blinks while on low rate. Press again and it switches back to high, and light is steady.

They mention refering to the AR6400's manual, in the manual. But I notice there wasnt one included, but I assume I can download that from HH.
Here is my Citabria parked next to it. Hah! Two planes on one coffee table, thay wouldnt have thought that possible either.

You have it bad...

Poor mother, I've got her addicted to watching the helicopters that make use of the field on the way to my father's nursing home

When she goes alone, she tells me of all the types that land.

"There's big ones, and little navy ones, and there's the one with two propellers that point up when it takes off, then point forward when it flies"
