The plane has already been shipping to people for several days now, so presale isnt the right term. You can buy one from either Nitroplanes.com or ak-models.com
Its a CMP ME-109 and there are a few threads on it here in the Fuel section:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=852296
, one in glow to electric conversion:

and one in the electric warbird section I think. The thread at rcu has been going on for well over a year, but the plane has now just begin to reach people. I just received mine yesterday.

Uh no. The one on that link is an ESM as you stated, but is the manufacturer for KMP(Kondor Model products www.kmp.ca ) in Canada and YT International in the UK. ESM distributes under their own name in Africa and a few other locations.
That plane is an ME-109, but it is the Emil or "E" version.
The CMP is an F version with curved/rounded spinner, rounded wing tips, split oil cooler flaps as well as landing flaps. The "E" version only have landing flaps. The spinner on the ESM shown in the picture is also incorrect for the version, but the scale depressed spinner is no longer offered.

Take a look at the picture. This is the original paint scheme for the ESM/KMP/YT International ME-109E. Please note the spinner....it is scale(correct) for this variant. It is the same variant of plane as pictured in your link, just the older paint scheme.
And yes, the plane is mine.

Not impressed. The graphics are horrible, the spinner is well off scale....

But for 300 bucks...

Yeah Evil I agree. The CMP plane looks ok, but yup, there are some scale issues. But, no one else offers an F/G model....so...we will have to work with whats available. Like you said, for $300, its decent, especially being $179 less then the KMP
