Don't feel bad. Those ParkZone warbirds are notoriously underpowered. I flogged the whee out of a P-51 just trying to get it in the air. Flew fine once it was up there, but I can't tell you how many times I dumped the nose in the dirt just trying to launch it.

A friend of mine modified a P-51 and a Focke-Wulf with Park 450 outrunners and of course, his own radio gear. He uses APC props...with the stock spinners, yet.

These birds are hot. REALLY hot.

Both fly in excess of 70 mph and launch with a gentle underhand toss. Believe it or not, he hasn't needed to reinforce the wings! Yup...stock foam "skeleton" in both.

That Mustang will zoom past my full-house E-flite P-47D Thunderbolt 400 like it was standing still and that plane ain't no slouch.

The first time I saw the Mustang, I simply couldn't believe what I was seeing.

thanks for the feedback... i think i may have to sell the Spit if it goes that fast... i don't have a place to fly it really, long drive to the "big" field... i fixed the wing but also bought a replacement wing, and a new firewall so its good to go... just needs reassembly. i will try it again when i feel more confident but if i wreck it again i will sell it...
