No issues with the added right thrust on the Troajn, it flies great! It's not as fast as the P-51 or the Rare Bear and it is much gentler to fly.

I was able to fly my Trojan, P-51 and Rare Bear today - yippee! I also got video of Gooniac33's Rabid Rare Bear on video with 4s. BTW, I'm uploading the same video but with sound, for now this will have to do:

Ray's Rare Bear on 4 cell!!! (2 min 44 sec)

I agree, most of the "scale nuts" wouldn't like a foam plane in the first place... I think most of them just like to complain...

Dude!!! Is that the stock motor and ESC with just a different prop?? My Bear will be here in a few days. I'll have to get a 4s 1000. I already have some 6x5.5 APC'a and Graupner Cam Speed props for the 3s.

As for the scale nuts. I'll be ripping up the sky and having fun while they are complaining about cowls and canopies that no one could see at 20 yards and 70mph.

Kuczy, are you referring to the video I posted? Gooniac's Rear Bear is running with:
~ stock motor and esc
~ external BEC
~ 4s 1000mah battery
~ APC 5.25x6.25 prop - 24amps WOT on the ground.

Maidened my Rare Bear with Ray and CrazyJ.

Ran with a 6x4 APC and stock everything else. Dam decent...

Next flight day will be 800mah 3s 40c with a 6x5.5 APC.

Next a 1000mah 4s 40c 5.25x6.25 APC external UBEC.

I was standing there when Ray went by with a fresh 4s - had to be pushing a buck 15 no problem.

This plane is rock solid and wicked fast.

We plan on racing them in 2 classes - 3s plus props and 4s unlimited in a triangle circuit.

I think the P-51 on 4s is going to be a contender also.

What fun!!!

Thanks Pete

Cheers!

Are you guys adding the external BECs just for insurance?

WOWINSANEFast! Nice job on the video Jason. I'm amazed that these little birds are so much faster than the J-power jets with such little modification.

btw, you guys are super lucky to have such a great park for flyin

HOLD ON A DADGUM MINUTE! That is waaaaaaaay to fast to be scale That is just not right (enough) for the scale crowd - and too bad.for them.

Nice video of a tough subject. My big problem now is that I'm gonna want every one in the series.

I think each airplane in the series is awesome! I own and have flown the Bear, T-28 and P-51.

Below is a video of the P-51's maiden in stock form. I took the P-51 straight from the shipping box to the air in less than 15 minutes on Saturday morning at the field. I used no tools except a bottle of CA.

First Flight: Mini P-51 from JPower/Skyangel (2 min 54 sec)


Like Gary said, the P-51 is going to be a rocket on 4s, and could possibly out-perform the Rare Bear on 4s.

Love this little plane...

Looks like it's sitting there saying

"I like to move It - move it - LET'S MOVE IT!"

Gary, those servo fairings are clean! Where can I buy them and how much? I want to put them on my Rare Bear and P-51!
