It uses a good old 2200mah 3s. Guys report 8-10 minute flights using a decent 2200mah lipo.

W/Span is 1059mm/41.7"
Length is 531mm/20.9"

Best flying of any of the P-38 foamies hands down. Plenty of power, very stable, small and light. I averaged about 6 minutes of flying time from ZM 1500 3s 20c battery. A great plane for sure. You can still pick one up at Graves RC for 170 plus shipping, so this is a good deal.
One word of caution. Beware the clevis attachment points, they weaken easily and have caused many a P3 P38s demise mine included. Strenghten the area around the elevator clevis specifically and check it before every flight. I wish I had for sure.

Thanks for the caution on the control horn points. Do/did you run yours on stock power systems? Why such a small battery?

Anyone want this bird before I break down and build it?

I ran the P38 fully stock and it was a GREAT flying machine. VERY fast with unlimited vertical striaght out of your hand using just 3s 1500mah 20c lipo. If I weren't subject to D.B.W. (death by wife) I'd have taken it off your hands immediately. Great, fun plane.

Now that's customer service at it's best! Always willing to adjust to to a buyers personal needs, no matter what not so rare condition it may be.

I also have a very close and long time friend with a similar situation.

Applaude. >< >< ><

Sam,
not sure if my PM's are getting to you as I haven't received your paypal address. Give me a call at the number I gave you earlier so I know you still want to sell this.
Thanks,
Alan
