Mustang flies superbly. It's fast and incredibly agility. I can say that this model inherits flying qualities from original plane
Recently, I had occasion to check out it in Championships of Poland in Electric Simple Aircombat.
Few shots:

Almost the whole pocket is enough
Plane is very light, it weights only 330g.

olddog,

I'm thinking Szymek may have misunderstood your question.
Website kit description shows part of the contents to be "enhance carbon/glass". I take that to be a combintaion of carbon fiber and fiberglass rods and/or strips for bracing (stiffening).

Szymek,

I started to badger you with a lot of questions about the P11c kit, but I think I'll just order one and see what I get. Thanks for the link to the ESA website.

nono28,

Howdy - My experience building with EPP is quite limited, but I could not resist the PZL-P11c kit and ordered one from Marek today.

I watched several videos of Marek's planes flying and was impressed, his designs seem to be very airworthy. I look forward to trying my hand at one.

I may eventually have to try the Jer-2, that thing is just way too cool looking in the air.

Keep 'em flying, boys!

Hi, Mazzepa1,

These aircraft are simple to build, does not hesitate to call a help if you have a problem building (note the double dihedral of your aircraft).
Uses new cutter blade,
to insert the carbon rods cyano fluid
Valid in your plane flies first finish follow.

See you soon, Nono28

Hi Szymek_98_PL,

Really congratulations for your version of the Mustang with glass roof Malcolm, I did not dare to make an aluminum colored paint on the EPP.

Beautiful mastery of the airbrush and more .... What else

See you soon, Nono28

When is a meeting with my Me109?
