For those of you on my warbird thread - let me know if you want to buy my parts. I am still a warbird afficionado - but the lack of spare parts has be bummed.

Plus, I am moving to the DJI Phantom 2 quad and do not have room anymore for this project to rebuild!

Thanks to my father in law - and the guys here on RC groups and Youtube for guiding the design of the PVC - Bungee Launcher for my EDF jet. I plan to use this for my F-16 once I fix it up after a crash...Check out this video:

This RCgroups thread inspired me to get the Parkzone Spitty...liked the camo scheme with a more streamlined fuselage lines as compared to the P-47. I am a bit concerned about the narrow distance between the wheels for a two wheel is the latest video with my maiden flight and then a decent landing at the end of the video:

Well, now that I have had some success with the Airfield 800mm Corsair - I decided to splurge and get the P-47 Thunderbolt from the LHS. I got the BNF version - but replaced the receiver with my Spektrum AR8000 since this is my most expensive RC plane to date.

It flew great on the Maiden Today!

Next Build - install Retracts and Flaps! Here is a flight video:
