She was pretty guttless with a long roll out. When I tried to turn her around she stalled. I got her out the weeds and cart wheeled. Broke the nose off but thats it. I really dont want to put any money in it so I'm just going to put it on hold. I think I'll work on the mustang and the B-25 for now.

Well if you need any help let me know. would be cool to get the mustangs up along side the B-25. I think the scale would be close to right.

It's Alive!!!!!!!

Not quite done but its getting there...
H-9 B-25 Taxi Test (3 min 36 sec)

You might have noticed in the video, only one rudder is working and it's opposite movement of what it should be. I need to get a reversing "Y" harness.








Or, I shouldn't have said anything cuz you might not have noticed....
