OH!!! NO! My Park Patrol is ready to fly (P-51 Mustang)

Hello Guys,

I had this plane laying around for a month now, and never really got to finishing her, because I wasn't sure on what to color her. I don't want the traditional color scheme of silver, black and white. (I already have two silver, white and black planes).

I saw an ad. that has a black, yellow and red color scheme, thinking hey! That's it, since I already decided, black as my primary, red and yellow will be perfect as it's secondary scheme, making it mean, yet have a pleasant, BAD to the BONE racing color.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...highlight=Pica

My system:

Motor: Mega 16 series x 5
GB. : DD
Prop. : 6x4 0r 7x4 (Will experiment.)
Batt. : 1100 HiCells ( From Edogflight)
Servo : HS 55
RX. : HS 555

Very nice. Well done on the color scheme. Let us know how she flies.

The GWS model is in the hands of some beta folks, but shows B/O on Horizon's site. Should be soon.

Genovia,

Sharp looking P-51! I do like the black with the other colors to set the plane off. Nice job.

When will you get it in the air?

DavidJ,

****Very nice. Well done on the color scheme. Let us know how she flies. ****

Thank you Sir! And yes! The anticipated GWS (I can't wait any longer)

azflyer,

Hey, Bud Video? Man, I don't have the right stuff to take vid's. but will have a friend to do it for me.

****I've been waiting for this one to get finished and it looks great!!!
****


Thanks, Bro! I know, it's been a long time since I worked on her. The python is next, all I need to do is do the trims on her as well. Mine scheme will be Cola Cola colors I'm getting another one next week, cause I forgot to clone the first one.

Rogerdoger,

Thanks, RC (Ring, Ring. None's home... ) Saw the little guy today. Its a pilot....

Guys,

I won't be getting her up in the air tomorrow, cause I'm painting the bottom scoop and the cowl.

Sunday will be her maiden flight

azflyer,

I'm going for the x5 on her DD but will try the x3 first, what do you think? I'll get back to you on her total flying weight.

katana1211,

Hello,

Hey! Were neighbors Way cool, what do you fly? ****hi genovia, just wondering where do you usually fly your plane at? i live in hayward, ca. i would love watch maiden flight.. ****

I usually fly my maiden flights at the end of Mowry, in the back of the Silliman Center, I'll be there Sat. 8am for maiden flights, and fly every other Sunday @ Baylands (Mountain View)

Send me a pm, to hook up, and fly one of these days. I would love to fly w/ you, just don't fly planes with LG on, the field that I fly on will rip it apart...

Here's the field in Fremont.

Yours,
Antonio

The Stang looks cool And very bad to the bone
I can't wait to see it on a fly-by on Sunday

Have you figured out what it weighs? Also, what's the wing area/span? And whose kit is that anyways?

PlaneKrazy,

I have to get all the gears installed, and I need an accurate scale, besides the one that I'm using now. (Cheap fishing scale)

YUP!! Pica mustang, and I think there's a Red Dago that's been hiding in the back, with all kits @ Sheldon's.

Dreamer,

Man! I don't have the equipment to take video's and wouldn't know how to lload in online, but will talk to compuatic if he can take a video for me, and from there figure out a way to load up online.

*HAS ANYBODY NOTICED MY AVITAR?????????

Antonio,

Your avitar was the first thing I noticed...Congratulations!!! I remember, because you used to have that "Perfect hand launch" where the paper airlplane morphs into a P-51, if memory serves me correctly. How far along is "new pilot"?

Life is about to get radically different.


Cheers,
Adam
