For those that are or possibly thinking of buying a 1700mm plane, i have recapped a few things that I am reading if you happen to miss them .
For the Corsair --
BH as we all know has the FMS- 1700 , we dont know if its V2 version .
RC Castle --has the FMS 1700mm --we know it V2 and with shipping you will pay about $80 to 110 more but your guarenteed V2 .

BH also sells the larger folding wing LX corsair for $339 , you will need new retracts $60 , BH is now sold out of the new retracts , you can use the FMS retracts for the 1700 mm corsair but you will add more in shipping so be prepared to spend $339+60 and est shipping at $15 , arpx $417, plus you will need to upgrade the wing spars $$$$$$.

Now the P51 , I cant even begin to tell if you buy the P51 from BH , what version you will get .
Trust me I tried emailing and calling and they dont know what version they have . The plane has a variance in mortor , in accurate pilot color and some more details .

RC Castle according to Raymond has the latest version of the FMS P51 1700 , both motor and pilot ect all updated .

So if your like me , FMS , and the distributors have done a good job confusing the living he........out of me .
I might as well chuck some darts at a board

Also, Ldm, SN Hobbies has 2 V2 Gray ones for those without a color preference but shipping is high to the US.

Aros, Nice Banner - Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!

I received a confirmation E mail for the gray version even though I ordered the blue. Usually, I will get an email instructing me to make an appointment for pickup. After I make the appointment, I get a special code which I enter at the door. A voice comes on the intercom asking my name. If the code matches my name then the electronic locks are opened and I can enter. None of this has happened yet except the confirmation. Usually takes 3 to 4 working days.
