New Phase 3 P-38 = EMI P-38 repackaged?

http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/107314.asp


The dimensions are the same as EMI P-38 and price wise is similar. Note the spinner and prop, nose, canopy, and aileron setup are all distinctly EMI. Even the rudder/elevator push rod position is the same.

If I remember, the EMI labeled one was a bit cheaper in price.

That is because EMI only offered twin brushed motor/gb version. Here they offer twin brushless motors and escs included.

If that price includes the motors, esc's, and plane man I am sold and it spanks E-flite and GWS IMO.

I wonder if it comes with the optional rudder linkage.

Sold mine and yes, I really miss it.

awesome, I've been wanting one of these for a while. Glad hobby people is importing them. I had talked to a few companies that thought about it but no one ever had. That's a great price for all you get. I like that paint scheme as well.

I am afraid not. It is EPS like GWS foam but the surface is smoother.
