I wish I had more than the Zero and I wish I had my Zero operational. For the few flights it was working well it was quick and fun!

I'll likely be getting the Hellcat as well, and I'd guess any Hellcat will be better in the air than any Zero.

The spitfire took mine. I have the 1400mm and the 800 and both have custom paint jobs, and 4 bladed props.

I flown a no. listed but wished I had the opportunity to fly more. That way, I can make a better assessment. Well if it is just popularity voting, I'd go for the FMS Mini P-47 Thunderbolt.

Vote in for the Hellcat. But they both fly very similarly.

Oh, I forgot! I have a genuine reason for this.

The Hellcat has a LOT more room inside.With the Zero I had to spend a while moving stuff around to figure out a way to fit the battery and ESC in the nose. The Hellcat has twice the room in the nose (as it had twice the engine!) and I can move things around wherever I feel like them being for CG. The Zero is just packed in, there's no hope of decent airflow in there. The Hellcat I could clean up some, push things to the side if there ever is a heat issue.

The Zero has a plastic air intake (non functional) that is glued under the cowl. For belly landing, it just isn't possible. It tore off on a very tame landing and I replaced it with a hunk of foam carved to mimic the intake. Behind the intake are two exhaust stacks, which I'm sure will break off sooner or later. I have black foam ready for that day. The Hellcat is a lot better belly landing as it is all smooth underneath and there's nothing to catch. The winger is more in the middle of the plane than way at the bottom in the Zero.

So Hellcat wins.

Wow, no votes for the Corsair or the Texan, yet!!! As of right now, it is a 3-way tie between the P-40, the P-51, and the T-28. Keep them coming, guys

taking price into account, seems like the p-47 is doing great(probably the most popular) because its the cheapest 800mm airfield warbird available!

Its hard to believe that the P 40 is in the top four
When ask in the other thread it has a less then favorable reputation
Don't get me wrong I love the P 40
And my poor BF 109 is towards the bottom
and it gets one of the best flight reports

Ok I got some Cheese with Whine I happen now
