Question

Build Your Own Parkzone Mustang Question


I am looking at the Parkzone Mustang and see that they are finally selling the complete airframe. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...ProdID=PKZ1870

Has anyone tried to assemble their own. I have plenty of servos and ESC, but was wondering about the moter.

I have a Turnigy 35-36C in an eflite seafury and it hauls, but I was thinking this might be too much for the Mustang.

Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated

Ugh. I was looking for the option of purchasing this airframe for weeks and couldn't find it. I ended up getting a BNF. Figures.

That motor will be fine, I built my second gunfighter from an airframe kit. It will come with everything except the motor mount. I used the PZ motor from my first gunfighter but the 35-36C was highly recommended. I have to say that the airframe plane flys much better than the BNF did because of the better servos and the battery tray I built so I could move the CG back.

If you are going to mail order it, you might think about getting it here...

Zummy,
Awesome job on that set up. As if I'm looking for more incentive to snag this ARF...

Very nice Mod. I fly off rough fields so no retracts for me. I just flop them in. Thanks
