Hey very nice cargo plane!

I didn't even know this was available. When Gravity bought the moulds from Cox, exactly which moulds did they get?

What models are still available? I bought my two models from Gravity's eBay shop and at the time all they had were the entire single-motor Warbird series.

I heard talk of a P-38 which would be super awesome but not actually seen it. And now this Cargo plane. What else is there?

Slaanesh,

You can check Gravity Hobby's website : http://www.gravityhobby.com/

I think the P-38 never made it into production.

That link is blocked for world customers. It's only available to the US by the looks of it.

Anyway, there's also http://www.vintageglowengines.com/ where I found the Cargo plane. But they don't ship it outside of the US - which is a pity.

It's really nice! Very different.

I'd totally want a small scale P-38 though - something around the 24" wingspan would be awesome.

doggone it. If I didn't already have 5 kit airplanes (no RTF's) and 4 scratch builds waiting to be built, I would love to add this one to the stack. And, I am kinda tight for space to store the 26 currently RTF planes that I have flying right now. I recently retired 4 planes to make room for 4 more to keep a total of 30 flying planes. That is the total number of planes that the wife will allow me to have in my hanger (single car garage) and my hobby shop (back bedroom-used ONLY for RC).
Retirement is great. There just is not enough time. I wonder how I ever had time to work.

I have exciting news gentlemen. For the past week I've been flying my stock P-51 & brusless Zero with a 800mAh 7.4 2S battery. I get anywhere between 25 & 35min. of flight time. Pics & vids will be up soon.

Here are some pics or the aileron and battery hatch setup on my new FW.
Very nice, and clean.

They may be counterfeit, according to HH so you use them at your own risk. But I don't see that using these is any different than using HK's clones. Neither is authorized by HH but there is evidence from users that both are functional.

I'm picking up two. I'll post on how they work.

You should make this your 2nd plane that you fly. A Cub is the right plane to start with.

lol guys.. I got as a present yesterday a 1.65m wingspan Extra with a YS-4stroke engine all spektrum servos and the receiver he had inside was an AR6100 v1.6 the guy was flying with a microlite parkflyer.. I don't think these birds which are 6-7 times smaller will have any range issues...
btw that's my first nitroplane.. I was into electrics and I still think of converting it to electric

You could not give me a nitro plane. Well, maybe, but I would look into converting it to electric and putting the nitro motor on ebay. Nitro r\c planes suck IMO. Maybe its because I have bad memory's of those noisy no starting POS motors from the late 70's.

maybe... I was told that YS 4stroke are good engines.. but yet again I don't want that petrol mess.. and here in Cyprus we are like 20 years back in the way of thinking.. they think that electrics are toys.. I just wanted to build a Sundowner electric just to show those jackasses how better it is compared to a nitro.
anw.. I will most probably look for a conversion after the fixes. It's my first prop plane and I want it to be a good one.. I only had edfs so far.

ofcourse it will not be my first if you consider that have two cox warbirds
