I wouldn't dispute what you're saying, TopFoam. I just have the feeling PZ will be rolling out an Axis fighter next to counter the P-51, like an Me-109. Just speculation on my part. It would be nice if they could roll out several new micro fighters at a time.

Just like you guys are saying, it comes down to personal choice. You can't compare the BNF PZ Mustang with the HL Mustang. They are not the same thing. If you fly the PZ RTF Mustang and the HL Mustang the HL Mustang is easier to fly and has more realistic scale details. If you want to do rolls and horse around then the PZ Mustang is for you. If you want something that's more scale and simple to fly then the HL Mustang is for you. Yes the BNF Mustang with a real radio that has EPA and Expo can make the PZ Mustang more docile.

Thanks,

Maybe a year until it is available to buy, i would say it will be released in about 4-6 months, but then there's the big wait until they actually ship them. Fingers crossed ay!

To chime in again on this thread, I've had the HL Mustang out a few times now and like it more with each flight. It is a very stable, easy to fly airplane - I've never flown a more stable low wing plane of any size. Works great for a quick stop by the park on the way to or from work. When I want more of an aerobatic workout, I fly a different airplane but this one fills the bill for me for a nice relaxing flight with a sharp looking plane.

Fingers crossed! One can never have enough Spitfires. I'll train on and enjoy the HL Spitfire and get a PZ, too, if they become available.

Yeah the HL Mustang is stable and a slow flyer but so is Parkzone's P-51. I have both and would highly recommend Parkzone's, great plane!

Jason,
Will there be an option to purchase the Spit without the transmitter?
Thanks

We have some sample adapters here to fix the battery issue that work great. We are setting them up in the system right now and you'll be able to get 4 free adapters, one for each battery, the charger, and the plane. Those should be available by Monday under part number ERC2003A.

Thanks,

The Spitfire is only coming in a RTF package. We are considering offering a Bind with the eRC transmitter version in future models.

Thanks,
