FMS Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero 1100mm Warbird Maiden Flight


This is the Maiden Flight of my FMS Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero 1100mm Warbird. I received this beautiful A6M5 Zero as a Birthday Present from the Cheer Central Suns J2 “Glitter” (Glitterati).. the All-Star Cheer Team that I Coach.

Out of the box, all of parts arrived pristine with no blemishes. Assembly of the model was very straightforward and simple. The only main modification was adding (16) Great Planes 7-Gram Sticky Back Lead Weights within the Plastic Cowl Interior to achieve the manual’s recommended 60-65mm Center of Gravity. Aside from this, the model was assembled and balanced in a short amount of time and ready for setup on the Spektrum DX8 Transmitter.

The FMS Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero 1100mm is a smooth-flying, aerobatic, predictable, and gorgeous Warbird.. a plane that I’ve wanted to have in my fleet for quite some time now.

This Maiden Flight is dedicated to my 2016-2017 Cheer Central Suns J2 “Glitterati” who honor me with this treasured present. With heartfelt gratitude.. thank you.
