Will have to do some work and find out the reason, all stock using the FMS ESC and BEC. w\Well she looked great on the grass while my old tried and true P-51 flew rings around her.
Dadgum cmk-2 you have not flown that Blue Bird yet, what was your glitch?

I run JR equipment and like to use 6V to RX to prevent brown outs.Do I understand correctly that the BEC jumper on two center pins provide 6V? Will the servos handle 6V?
Have been using front two pins (stock location @ 4.8V-5V) on the 1.7m P47 with no problems so far but would like to increase RX voltage
Is any of the above correct?

A few shots as I near completion on this project. Shot clear semi-gloss over the blue, it was nice not to have paint peel with decal application. Callie cut and printed my exact file. Good job!

Was the grey paint job used on aircraft that saw combat?

This site had some info about it

"The AU-1 was the final American version of the "Hog". The type saw combat in Korea and survived far enough into the 50s to wear the then-new grey over white paint scheme in service."

The gray over white paint scheme was introduced in 1955 on Naval aircraft. This was between wars so, no, as for Corsairs.
