These are great little planes, and the retracts work very well after some adjusting of the throws if you remember one simple thing - When the gear is down you should be able to push on then in the direction of travel and there should be ZERO load on the servo. If the servo begins to load up then the gear is not in locked position and requires further adjustment. If they are not in locked position they WILL collapse on landing. Often, people make the mistake of thinking it is the job of the servo to hold the gear in place - this is simply not true.

Also, just be careful and carry some speed thru landing or a tip stall is immenent.

I've had the Texan, Voodoo Mustang, and the larger P-51 40.

The build is very straight forward, as well.

Everything Steve said is true, the World Models planes are awesome once dialed in (especially the retracts).

I know the ad says Local Pick Up only, but if you're willing to ship to Oregon, I'd be interested....

Thanks for the comments.

You know, shipping has become so expensive you might as well just buy one at your LHS.

If the plane is still in the original box it wouldn't cost that much to ship, $16.00 or less by UPS and that includes $100.00 insurance.

You forgot to add in the cost of buying a shipping box, the packing materials, and the gasoline to drive to and from the box store and UPS.
