Nine Eagles P-51 or Parkzone UM P-51?

Sorry I mean the Nine Eagles P-51 or the Parkzone UM T-28. The Parkzone UM P-51 seems a little to expensive for me as I only want a cheap plane that I can fly as well as my glow fuelled plane. The Nine Eagles micro one is so much cheaper and I don't see much of a difference. What are the main differences and which ones better? If the Nine Eagles one is completely useless then I'll go with the PZ T-28 instead. Thanks in advance

The link I saw is this: http://www.rcpitstop.co.uk/nine-eagl...nel-2843-p.asp

It is so much cheaper than the other Nine Eagles Micro P-51s, is there a reason for this?

HK sells the NE stuff for about $60 USD. If you have or want to buy in the future, a DSM2 radio, go with the T-28.

If you want something that you throw away when it breaks, buy the Nine Eagles.

They fly OK, but they are "Cheap" and a little fragile.

The P-51 was my second plane and it has been a rock for over a year. It is tough, looks great in the sky, and is fun to fly.

GBLynden: When you said P-51, were u talking about the Parkzone one or the Nine Eagles one?

I have the T-28 and the reality is that it is a very basic plane. Poor motor, poor servos etc.

I'd go for the Durafly F3A Micro 420mm (PNF). It's less than $70, though you need to spend another $5 for receiver. However all surfaces are properly hinged, has great servos and good throws on control surfaces. Also runs on 180mAh 3s Lipoly Battery. Puts it in a different league than the PZ UM T-28. Though note I haven't flown this but have flown bigger Durafly planes and love them.

A T-28 is a beginner 4 Channel plane.

A 3S F3A is not a plane for beginners. At All. Apples and Oranges.

A beginner would destroy it about 9 seconds into the first flight.

The OP is an experienced pilot with glow plane experience. Hence I suggested the more capable plane.

The Corsair is a good plane. Did you get a new one with the AS2030L wing servos?

They have the large motor and the visible ball bearings.

+1 on the Corsair.

Now throw an AP05 in her and let it rip on 2s.

Yep, I got the new one! Planning on putting Miniaviation Platinum 190mah batteries in them. I'm just a little worried though, because I always fly in the morning (as it's really windy during the day) and there is always dew on the grass, and the grass is really long so the landing gears don't keep it from touching the grass, is there a way to prevent the aileron servos from getting wet?
