that would be extremely heavy for a plane of this size. I'm thinking they would be lighter than that. Perhaps a servo we have not seen yet.

The 2.5 servos I have actually weigh 3.5 g with the wires and connectors.

I'm thinking seriously of ordering one of these...they would be $108 with 2 day shipping..

I almost never use the rudder on aileron planes... Bank-N-Yank FTW! Bank the plane with the ailerons, and yank the elevator back to turn....

Not if you have any spektrum transmitter or module... Bind-N-Fly FTW! These other companies would do themselves a HUGE favor if they would buddy up to futaba or airtronics... There is a huge base of people with nice futaba or airtronics 2.4ghz transmitters that are currently VERY jealous of spektrum users due to bind-n-fly.....

I totally agree. The only reason I own a MCX and the parkzone p-51 is that I had a DX7, and they both work with it. I dont buy anything that comes with its won transmitter, because, #1, I have a nice transmitter, and thats what I want to fly with, and #2, I dont want to have to bring a bunch of different transmitters along if I'm planning to fly several different planes.

Well i'm using 3.7g servo's on a 3d plane with a 15" wingspan. And this plane is only using 2 servo's, not 3 so it's possible.

Actually...

I prefer not to "fetch" the plane. With these micros, I find it pretty easy to land at my feet or even catch them. While I agree a rudder is nice, it's not at all a necessity on these planes and my point is simply that for the weight penalty necessary to add one, it's not worth it to me. Also, this thing's not a pylon racer and with much wind at all, "precision" is pretty difficult.

But, that's the beauty of this hobby and all the great RTF's. Those who like them stock can fly them that way and those who like to modify them can do that too.

Not only can you do more precise moves in the air using rudder coordinated with ailerons etc, but you can also steer the plane on the ground. You must like to fetch your plane. I do not and I also think adding a rudder will not be that difficult.

So... has anybody ordered one yet?

If they do turn out to be good flyers, I'll hold out for the Spitfire. I have enough Mustangs in my fleet...and a four-wheeled one in my garage!

Hey guys,
Glad everyone is excited about these new planes and the eRC brand. I'll clear up some answers here. They are actually smaller than the ParkZone P-51 and not meant to be a direct competitor. These have a "collectors item" type feel and they are much more docile to fly. Heck, I can barely make it roll. It's not designed to be aerobatic. Just a fun plane that virtually anyone can fly. The scale details really set it off and the display stand is a nice touch. Also at $99 RTF with 2 batteries, it's hard to beat.

If you want to do victory rolls and horse around then the Parkzone plane is a better fit for you. If you want a great looking P-51 that is relaxing and fun to fly then the E R/C P-51 is for you.

Thanks,
Jason Cole

More display than play? I can dig it.

So will we have to buy a new transmitter with each release or will the same TX work with the Spit and whatever else comes down the road?

Will there be more 'birds in this series?

Not really less play, just less aerobatic. It's great fun to fly. The same transmitter can be used for the Spitfire and other models that will be coming. The bind process is super easy so you can just carry one transmitter and swap out planes on the fly. You can even charge the extra battery from the transmitter while your flying.

Thanks,

Jason, can you clarify the servo situation. Are they indeed separate servos or is it a brick configuration? So will the planes be available without the transmitter? Looking forward to seeing the stang this weekend.
