Unfortunately I will not be able to supply the Red Tail paint scheme in kit form. But it is not too hard to replicate. I will have a painted version available though. Probably blue and silver.

I have a couple of EZ Flys that I have been playing with for years.They're great because I can fly with anyone who is willing, with almost no regard for weather. Mine are pre-airfoil models, and CoG is way too far back, but that hasn't stopped them from getting more air time than any other planes in my fleet.

A P51 is great, but I think it is weird having a spitfire and a P51 trying to ram each other out of the air. Consider some Axis planes.

Very Soon to be released is the EZ Fly Standard Version, and shortly after that the P-51 version, which is almost complete as well.

Very cool!

I have the guts to an old Harbor Freight Yellow Bee and might try to make mine into a twin prop with differential thrust only. Thanks for the great plane design!

Very Nice Mike, one advantage I see is you could actually smakitin to that nice red Firebird across the street, and not scratch the paint!

Hi Mike!

I met you at the Wichita event last year. Love your models. I put an HD
video Keychain recorder on my EZfly trainer and thought you might like to
see it...

I hit a rafter with my Fancy Foam EZfly Trainer, fell to the floor, and took-off again with no damage. Crash at 1 minute 2 seconds.

Happy flying!

Imported and flew my EZFly this AM. What a great trainer! Excellent work Rightcoast!

I think we need a second color scheme for on line combat with these little beasts.
