Nice, I wonder how soon they will have them. They are also coming out with a 55" wingspan F4U Corsair.

Good find.
It looks really nice and they're clearly targeting Parkzone with this size plane...but things like the unfortunate position and arrangement of the battery hatch remind us why Parkzone is king.

Tony does a nice job showing the details of the planes but there were a few mistakes...and did he really suggest hand tightening the prop?!?

Ya, it looked promising until I seen the battery compartment...still might be ok though....
Wonder who the original manufacturer is....as far as I know Airfield is just a rebrand...

Another one to watch. We are in the golden time of rc.

I believe that FMS is the mfgr. Of Airfield models, rebranded by Nitro.

I thought so as well....but there's nothing mentioned about it on the FMS site...Does Nitro re-brand other manufacturers as Airfield as well other than FMS?

COOL! More WWII Navy warbirds

Tony does a great job on his videos. I like how comprehensive they are. But, I sure wish he'd improve his aeronautical vocabulary. Seems he's always calling droptanks "bombs". And, he'll use two or three different (inaccurate) words for the horizontal and vertical stabs. But, overall I like the work he does.

It seems that demand constantly outpaces supply with these larger models. I wonder if the US vendors have limited cash, or the Chinese manufacturers have limited production capabilities? Everything is out of stock at Nitroplanes, Banana Hobby, etc...

...which is good for us as the customers. Competition makes nice planes in this case. So we have of course Parkzone, than the new EPO Zero from E-Scale and now a F6-F in the same size (and quality?) from FMS. In another thread I saw a Rufe coming...i think the summer of 2011 will become a good one. The 2010 season here is almost over, it's getting colder every day...

cheers

Jazz-- You need to edit/remove you FMS link. It's got P0RN in it. I would have been pretty pissed if I'd opened the link with the kids around.
