Looks cool , seemed a little pitchey but who can tell when your not flying it yourself.
Love the spilt flaps , the struts , and overall lines of the plane , would have preferred a differant scheme but I can live with it !!!

Seems to be a slight problem with the hatch, notice the landing?

Think this bird will bite back if you do not stay with her during the whole flight

It's not torque.... it's P-effect. Ascending/Decending blade developing more thrust on the right side of the prop disk than the left.

if you look at the video at full screen, you can see the tail wheel is not retracted and the doors are open. So this is mod one.

I doubt very much that it flys like a P40 , I have over 8 P40ties from Pica , thru Top Flight and so on and so on , its all about wing loading and I would imagine that like the other EPO planes , wing loading is very very light for a 66" warbird.
I think (we/I ) I am assuming way too much from a simple video , I am sure it will be a gem !!!

Yes, looked like they were deployed (on the roll-out you could see). I have the impression that they didn't get to practice much to learn this bird, hence the turn to the left on take-off (so typical when you don't know it's coming) and the feisty landing approach that was too fast. Edit.: I think I was thrown off a bit by the pan of the camera on the landing, on re-viewing it looked o.k. Also, those overcast sky shots made the model look even more real.

My experience with a .60 sized P-40 with split flaps is that you can almost spot land it when they're fully deployed and you come in with power adjustments, just "stick" the landing so to say.

Looks like a great plane. Unfortunately it's a bit big for my area, or I'd be all over it! The mid 40" range seems to work the best for me for now.

Does anyone know where to find more info about their F-86's? These seem to be the only foam ones with scale "small mouth" intakes. I want one!

This model is just about like any other WW II warbird taildragger...If you aren't ready on the rudder it will turn left on you...And the narrow landing gear makes this a little worse...Looks like it flew very nicely to me...I'm thinking that it is a "MUST HAVE"!!!!......
