I'm starting to like that color scheme on the 109. The only thing that concerns me is the tiny props on these models. From my experience with the gravity warbirds, the tiny props just don't cut the mustard, I guess if you have a very high Kv motor like 3000 or so, but then it would be a noisy as heck.

So If I'm paying for these I would want an arf. I'm tempted but I like the Kyosho airiums (on paper) a lot better if I have to shell out the cash for an rtf. Nice looking planes though.

The Kyosho planes look and fly very nice! Very scale in both aspects. And all of the Skyangel airplanes are ARF's. And if these warbirds fly anything like the 50mm jets then it will be a for sure good thing. Judging by the videos that Jon posted they do! What I am happy about is the fact that they can be upgraded! I am not sure that the Kyosho are happy with power upgrades...

I spend much more time looking at planes
on the ground, more than flying them (we sure do) so
appearance is critical to me. The mini 109
has strange look ...looks like the P-39 to me

The tail did look a little funky to me too....but as I always say. If you are in the pits talking about stuff all day instead of flying.....Just cut the yappin and get to flying already!!! LOL

Its just a joke and I hope I don't offend anyone by saying that. But that's what I do when I go out to the flying field.....FLY!!! LOL

I have always loves the P-39 and P-63!! Great photo! And I just crossed my fingers and placed an order on the Rare Bear. It showed that it was in stock so why not? I really hope it shows before the weekend....

I'm tempted on the little T-28 and the new mini A-10 but B/Hobby's shipping rates are a bit on the HIGH side


I'm guessing you'll go straight to 4s on your RareBear right?@!

I don't see any airframe only kits yet. I looked but they usually come after the ARF's have been out for a while...
