YOWZA!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!
Pretty nice. You can try the Mr rcsound system. They are pretty good for $125. Probably sound better in the resonating cavity of a balsa bird but would work pretty well in a foamie.

It seems to me Mr RCsound realism is lacking compared to the Benedini. But, I I have not heard either in "real life" just on videos.

@ Kev...It's all what you pay for. I am paying extra to have the ultimate audio experience that current RC technology affords us in the Benidini setup.

@ Brand X... Spy photos? Not sure what you mean there. As for install video, sorry, I didn't take any of the install. It's very by-the-book. Simple, easy to follow instructions. PNP is literally 90 minutes or less.

@ Ldm...I have always said that there is not a more gorgeous city in the country than Seattle, Washington! And that's not because I was born and raised here, it's the truth! I've lived on the West Coast, on the East Coast, and in between, and it's not even close. Now, weather-wise, it's not the greatest place in the country for year-round RC flying, that is for damn sure!

@ Brandonmoon...Still looking it over, eh? So what do you think?

@ Mitchie...Enjoy her friend! Please post your maiden comments and video and photos are ALWAYS a plus!!!

Hey Todd,

Yeh...I can see that it's made of a better and denser Resin material and fits together much better and tighter...I think it is ok and a step up from the other one, But I'm not going to give it much rant and rave....Just ok.

Is the Corsair on it way?

I hear ya BM. It didn't wow me much either, but it definitely is better than the first version. And for the record I have had 10 flights with the new girl without issue and that is even pushing her to the limits the last few flights.

As for the new Corsair, well mine is, but no such luck on any other one...

I'm loving this bird! The retracts are beautiful, the doors to the tail wheel open with the mains. They are better sequenced than my P-47( I think that's something I can fix when I'm replacing it next wk) I think it's even more scale looking than the 47'. I've installed the new Devo RX and she's waiting to go to the field

Still not loving the grey, but I can paint it after the snow flies!

Thanks Aros, I think I am go to have to bite the bullet on this one and order it, I also do not like the gray but if I don't crash it before I get around to painting it I will paint it.
