PZ is more sneaky than the US Gov't when it comes to keeping these things secret!!! Awesome job HH and PZ! Can't wait to see these. Guess I better start saving now...(as if I wasn't already)

Just pre-ordered both the F4U and the Mosi from HobbyZone. Now, the wait begins . . . If PZ keeps putting things out at this rate I'm going to have to crash more.

Shoot, I'll have to get a second job if they keep producing so many nice birds at that actual rate!

The only thing I didn't like about the Extra 300 3D is the fact that the box was much bigger than all my other 12 boxes who stacked together very nicely. I guess with it's bigger wingspan, this one will likely be the part of a new stack of bigger boxes in my basement! : )

I definitively do not need another charger, but still an interesting new charger too.

HH, for a manufacturing company, you definitively know how to keep the lid on your future products release. And you truly listen to your customers too. Kudos

Also, which three bladed prop, left or right, would I need for a single prop application using the Mustang/4Site/T-28/SU-26XP motor?

They may have right and left motors like the Coaxial Helis do.

I think you want the planes left hand prop (the right one looking from the front)

I really like the UM series because they are so easy to keep handy in your car. I keep my UM T-28 in my trunk and whenever I get a break and usually before I drive home in the evening I pull 'er out and take her for a couple of flights around the empty parking lot...

This Mosquito will be AWESOME!! Counter-rotating props! 2S lipo!

Great stuff!

The Mossy is 1S, which is better than 2S for a 20" WS twin.

That's what I initially thought, but evidently Parkzone has no qualms about reversing motor direction, so my guess is that it's the same motor for both sides. Maybe the rumored "improved" 8.5 motor?

Isn't speculation without knowing fun?

Oops--my mistake! I looked at the pic from a distance it looked identical to the UM Beast lipo. 250mah--tricky... Looks like we'll all have to buy new batteries Unless you want really short flights...

I wonder if this lends more credence to a PZ P-38 in the 42-44" size with retracts!!!! That would be a MUST HAVE BIRD!!! (as if all of these aren't MUST HAVE's). Gotta have priorities I guess:

1- New PZ Warbirds
2- Food

With the EFlite P-38 getting really hard to find and the popularity of it it'd be a good bet that the P-38 is on their short list.

Very cool tech Horizon.

Sure wish it was a P-38!!

I'm a plane lover but honestly much more excited about the Blade mCP X.
Well Done!!!!!
