Thank you, I am desperate, because I have no idea, what it can be

If in doubt, add accelerant

awacs - If you say the red light keeps flashing then properly charge the battery and re-bind the plane to the transmitter. See if that solves your problem.

Thank you, I will try it, because I charged it once and it was still doing so I will try some discharge cycles.

I have finally got round to ordering one of these, as a present to myself for getting a degree it arrives tomorrow, ill have a play with it before i start re-painting it. How have you guys removed the paint from this foam? and what kind of paint have you been using to paint it with?

My plan is to paint it in a night fighter camouflage scheme but id prefer to remove the paint and start again instead of building on top of it...

Read somewhere that Horizon recommends following touch-up paint....so you could use different colors for the effect you want: Testors: TES1732, TES1786 green is a little lighter than stock; light gray is way off

Horizon "How to" section in the website shows how to "weather" the existing paint scheme. Will try to find it and get a link

My joy of having a fully working mossie was short lived - my port aileron servo was sticking at full throw, quickly opened up the nacelle and manually rotated the gear through 360 degrees and applied a drop of lubricant - seems to have done the job. As it was happening at 100% throw, if it happens again ill just reduce the travel to 95% but for now its always nice to know everything works ok!

Still too windy!

So it's another day of high winds and its given me a chance on my lunch break to ogle at the Mossie - here are my ground based first impressions:
  • The quality of the build is the first thing, the foam is much smoother than the P51 that I Have next to it, the foam pellets are much less visible on the Mosquito compared to earlier UMs
  • Parkzone have listened to us! The elevator is reinforced with the CF rod (found on the T-28 but also at the control horn. They have added a metal reinforcement piece to ensure (like on my P51) the thin piece of foam between the two sides of the elevator doesn't tare.
  • Nice tail wheel mechanism - they haven't been lazy and placed it under the rudder (like the P51) they have put it in its scale location.
  • A clear canopy, no more silver spray paint, but a proper clear canopy seeing through to two foam seats.
  • 3 bladed prop, adds an extra realism, especially with the yellow tips.
  • Enclosed battery compartment - obvious really :P no need to fabricate strips of foam to protect batteries in the cold. Also provides a much more scale appearance. (And the machine guns )

Obviously it can't all be positive... It would have been nice to see the clear canopy treatment for the nose of the plane, but then we would just be complaining that we can see into the battery compartment.

I had to remove one of the nacelles to lube the servo, but this is nothing major. If you have just bought a BNF aircraft then its likely that you have had some experience before of at least fixing another plane. The procedure of removal is relatively pain free (apart from annoyingly having to remove the exhausts, but it's no biggie) and the joint is no where near as visible as on the other UMs so it doesn't detract from the looks.

Oh and the machine guns don't work

All in all a very positive impression. I get the impression that HH are improving their UM's as they evolve. How easy it would have been for them to bung the tail wheel on the rudder, or not add the metal reinforcement, clear canopy or use 2 bladed props. Or even supply with just 3 channels (bank and yank) or with 1 aileron servo. Am I the only one who think's we are getting better value for money as these evolve. Look at the T-28 with its steerable nose wheel for instance. I know they are all small additions but they all add up to a more satisfied customer.

I agree! All you have to do is look at the evolution of detailing & finish from the UM P51 & T-28 to the Mossie. And its especially evident in the UM Corsair with the clear canopy, detailed cylinders in the cowl, the detail in the vertical stabilizer and molding of it's complex wing. I am still amazed at the
performance and detail of these little planes for around 100 bucks! Its all good
