The motor/gearbox/prop combo is included in the kit. Your speed control should be fine, and if the flight pack includes the small pico servos they should work as well. the 110 batteries will work, but the pack should be divided in half with half mounted under each wing.

Saw 3 of them fly at Toledo (south of Toledo in a fieldhouse.)

They flew well and look great in the air. They seem to fast for a standard size gym. Motor gearbox is included worked well but a little more noise then some.

I bought the Zero. It is 4 or 5 projects away.

Should fly great outside on calm or light breeze day. I think they were recomending the smallest double time NiMh batteries.

He was also selling the motor-gearbox-prop combo (same motor as in the little twin B2)for $15.00. Lots of possibilities...

I noticed these planes on djaerotech's site the other day. Very spiffy looking. Are they rudder/elevator or ailerons/elevator?

Only 2 servos right?

Well, they said that the P-38 was a little faster than the airplanes in the rest of the series but after seeing the Corsair, Zero, and P-38 fly, it looked to me like it was about the same speed and maybe even slower? It just looked like it flew better than the singles......

I too saw them fly at Toledo. Very impressive little airplanes. The P-38 was my favorite by far. Yes, they only use 2 servos but they couple (mechanically) the ailerons and rudder. Works very well! Neat airplanes, highly recommended.

The_Giver: They are all elevator with coupled aileron/rudder with the horns cut to give the correct ratio of coupling. They also have steerable nose/tailwheels.

Raptor: The best batteries seem to be from Cloud 9, they call they "Doubletime" and are around $12 for a 6 cell pack shipped.

Saddler: I think you were tricked by the size difference, the P-38 is significantly faster than the others. The field house at Toledo was so large it was almost like flying outsite.

DJ released the Spitfire yesterday, I have them in stock at an intro price, but not on my web site yet. Contact me privately for info.

DJ Says 6 o 7 cells, 6 seems to be fine for indoor use, I've never seen one outside, but think I might try 7 if the plan was to fly outside more often.
