Yes, you certainly did

This past Sunday morning at East Orlando, Florida and at a place we all affectionately call EDWARDS!

Here is the Video showing David's Park Zone P-47 Thunderbolt! Sorry I missed the landing! I did get the "tail end" of the landing, however!

Glad to learn! I am sure it is a rush for you!

For those that are moderate Modelers, I would caution trying to do this to your model without an expert RC Flyer. At that speed and a sudden UP elevator the G-Forces on the wing and thin Foam Elevator has the potential to fail.

I can think of other models made from other materials for this kind of speed.

I Love Park Zone Warbirds because they provide nice "Scale" flybys and people actually can see what just passed them.

I put the Esc on the bottom and the battery flat on top slightly moved back close to the servo. Just cut a little foam of the original Esc compartment.
Will try to break 130mph with a 10x10 prop.
