I personally own the P-47. Have seen the T-28 around the field. Both fly well, both have issues. The P-47 used to have bad toe-in on the LG, it's apparently fixed on the newer models. The retracts still do not have springs. The P-47 can slow down surprisingly with the flaps down, and thus far I have not experienced any nasty surprises flying it.

The T-28 flies pretty well too from what I can see. The nose wheel strut tends to bend back and get damaged easily.

I only flew the P-51 and the T-28, but to me the T-28 was a much better flyer and landed more like a warbird. I also liked the fact that all the gear would retract. I was lucky to find a buyer for the P-51.

I had the P-51. It is a nice flyer. The gear worked perfectly. Its slow flight characteristics are very nice with flaps. I flew it with stock power and that was plenty for scale flying. Props were kind of scarce for awhile, but it seems HK has fixed that. I only broke 1 prop in 50+ flights.

I've only the P-47 but have been really happy with the plane. Only issue was the toe-in that from what I've read has been fixed. With a good 3s battery I've been pretty happy with how it flies, esp. with a four blade prop. Super easy plane to do nice scale take offs and super slow landings. Think I'm getting close to 30-40 flights now. Been such a nice plane that I'm tempted to add the P-51 also. Wish they would add a FW190D to the line.

Im going to give my 2 cents. The Vampire is a great beginner EDF in stock configuration. Floats all day on landing, simple to put together, and yoiu dont see one on every flying field. Great sound. Really like mine. Not your typical warbird

I fly with a guy who has the Durafly T-28 Trojan it is indeed a great flier. I have the PZ T-28 and the foam on the Durafly seems more dense. However, he is constantly having issues with the front retract. It is always loose. It is more detailed than my Parkzone too. Another fellow who flies with us has the Dynam T-28 Trojan. It also flies nice, but it too has problems with the front retract. It was great to have all of them in the air at once.

I only have the F4U-4 but am a total Durafly shill now. Easily the best ARF I've ever bought and the only fly right out of the box. I've done nothing to mine other than a few cosmetic things. You have to understand that I am driven to "mess" with all my planes to improve them but have done nothing to the Corsair and it flies beautifully. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. Get the one you like best.

I have the corsair and t28, my flying buddy has the p51. I think the t28 is the nicest and most stable in the air, the body is a bit thicker than the others and chops through the air with ease.

i love my se 5. flying it a scale speed or flat out. I it is a great plane. on a windy day iI was able to fly in and basically justhover into a perfect landing.

This and is also a head Turner. I everyone could. mentioned on how great it looks. I it allows a mediocre pilot loom like he (me) has been flying for years.
