Free admission? That's awesome. I did look up the museum, but Dayton was a good bit further than we were planning. Had to hit malls, Hobby Lobby (crafts) for the girls and all. We don't have stuff like that over here. All our malls and stores are like the bottom of the barrel. They are pathetic compared to seeing stuff outside of PA.

I'll be visiting the museum one of these days.

Should have dropped the girls at the mall and scooted over to the museum

Took the P47 up for a couple of sorties this AM, happy to report the sky is clear of enemy aircraft.

The Parkzone prop I have here, in my hand is marked PKZ5101
Propeller 10.5x9: Extra 300

if that's the one you mean, Other flyers on the Sea Fury thread told me to get it for my E-Flite Park 480 1020kv motor. Haven't tried it yet on my Sea Fury. P-47 arrives this week. For now I am flying my Sea Fury with an APC 10X7 prop.
