Nice fleet!


I have a GWS Formosa 1 to be built, that is about the only plane we might be able to share. Where is your HK Mig-15?

Just retired FMS 800mm P40. Had her for almost two years, on and off, pretty tough bird, but 50% crash rate: roughly crash one of every two flights. Typically tipstall during landing, or tailspin out of a loop. To me it is a good platform to learn about the basics of RC warbird flying, but a bad example of how a manufacturer paid no attention to endusers' need, like no thrust angle (neither right nor down) on the motor mount for the ARF kit. They are offering bigger EPO models now, but this experience turned me off.
Among Nitroplanes models, Exceed rc, Dynam, Art-tech are the better ones.

HobbyKing Mig 15 is not listed until I fly her. The pilot resume are planes that I have logged hours on. I know what you mean about the P-40 800mm.
Airfield 800mm P40 Warhawk Extreme Closeups, Flight Review and Crashes (2 min 54 sec)


Mine isn't destroyed (yet) but this model takes super concentration to fly and land. It was first and last 800mm Warbird from Nitroplanes. Also have the Dynam Sky Trainer still in the box.

A little anecdote: when I first install my own motor and balanced the mini P40 per manual, the thrust angle was so off it went vertical right away when I applied full throttle, then I was so frantic, cut off the power, it nosed in, the soft motor shaft was not even bent, all energy absorbed by EPO foam, bent the nose of course.

Reason I retired this P40, it really got me tired of crashing/repairing.
