correct, got another Frankie since I needed a set of replacement wings for mine here and when I called BH last week to ask about the replacement set they had...I was told they were V1 and not sure if the plastic retract mount was even included or the outer gear door fairing retract mounting piece.....which you can't seem to find as a replacement any where and I need a pair of them.

That Plastic piece that the retracts mount to is a very important part of the wing as far as rigidity goes I have found out....when it's out of the wing ...the wing is flimsy and twist pretty bad

Good work G.O.T.

Sounds just like mine. For even better sound try the "Spitfire 4" sound.

I do for the smaller 1400 models but this one required some extra mods like bigger ESC / battery to handle the extra weight so it would be very expensive to sell as a complete system considering the extra upgrades. The system is easy to install so people could do it themselves. Just takes a bit of time but well worth it.

Just wanted to remind everybody here that if you use coupon code "RCGROUPS" at Banana Hobbies you get 15% off but still pay the shipping. If you check that out on the larger orders like th 1700 mm war birds and etc. it's actually a better discount than the free shipping, you generally end up saving about an extra $5 or so....I just checked it.

However on the smaller orders under $200 or so it may not be as helpful and the free shipping may be a better option

Hi everybody, i had take a look at all the thread, but with my "less than school english" i'm not sure to have the correct answer. Can i fly the p51 with 5S 5000 Mah Lipo (less flying possibilities i think) or i need a 6S ?

Hi Davo,

I wouldnt recommend flying the stock motor with 5s. With 6s the motor setup is almost perfect. If you want it even better, I would highly recommend the V8 Prop Mod, which gives you more speed.

Ich würde Dir auf jeden Fall empfehlen mit 6s zu fliegen. Mit 5s wäre die Mustang wirklich untermotorisiert. Ich habe auch noch den Propeller Mod von V8 gemacht (wird hier in diesem Thread beschrieben). Der erhöht die Steigung des Propellers nochmal und damit hast Du noch ein bißchen mehr Speed und der Vogel geht echt perfekt! Allerdings zieht er auch etwas mehr Ampere, ca. 91 A.

Grüzi in die Schwiiz aus Hamburg!

Just received My Red Tails mustang a moment ago and noticed a difference from my Frankie I bought a while back. The Red Tails I just received has an Aluminum Main spar. Haven't check out the rest yet?, as I have to head off to work, but will check it all out tonight when I get home.....This plane looks as though it's been upgraded? My ferocious was a V2....so I'll see what the differences are tonight besides the already noted aluminum main spar joiner tube...Interesting?
