The slowstick was a doddle, the tiggy is a dream (all gws stuff so far), the pixie HLG is good fun but setting up the bungy takes a while, the hoverfly obviously is only good indoors. A few planes under my belt with no damage so I thought the p-51 would be a good next step.
I had 3 good flights under my belt with trusty old radio and a 10 x somehting standard prop. I thought I'd try my fancy new radio with rates and a 9x something (can't remember pitch) prop. Looks like I needed to make one change at a time. Got myself in a pickle with the rates, low slow and too twitchy thumbs shot me down good and proper.
Thinking about an A-10 instead as I have read tip stall warnings for the P-51 but I have heard only good things about the stability of the A-10. I guess I needed something softer for the step up to a full house ship.
Not too heart broken about the tang ( not but definitely not ) as it cost less in time but more in bucks which I can handle even though there is a bit of nagging about 'another toy plane' from my financial superviser ('er indoors)
Thanks for the sympathy......more than I get at home!!!!
