Wow, that made a LOUD bang...ouch. I saw another modeler hit a goal post of a football field goal post with a PZ Cub one day. That made a similar noise.

Thanks for the sympathy guys!

The P-47 was smashed to pieces, there was a man walking nearby who saw the whole thing and found one of the bombs. He said he had been an armament man on a flight crew in world war II, so it was fitting he found the bomb.

The plane was glued back together with epoxy, and live to fly many more flights, plus survived a few more crashes.

I retired it a couple weeks ago, but will get another. This is a fun, great flying bird that is as strong or stronger and as easy to repair as GWS. The value of the kit is unbeatable IMHO, the stock motor works well, I broke it and put on a $50 Brushless GS Models motor, and the difference was well worth it.

I've got the PZ 190 and Spits, great planes and you can't beat them as an RTF, but I've been eyeing the P-47. Aside from the PZ P-51, next on my list, the P-47's going be in my hanger at some point, I've got an old PZ J-3 Cub I'll gut for parts, nothing but raves here for the P-47, but it'll be a belly slider. The club I belong to flys at a grass field, and planes this small just don't like grass, unless they're sliding on it. I figure a coat or two of a matt finish sealer will stop the plane from making the field look like a bean bag exploded.
