Got mine too..!!! One of my 1st ones... Inspired me to get the bigger Freewing.. Also got me to learn of it.. Such a unique plane those piano makers over there in Britain came up with.!!

Here's an onboard clip I shot from my UM Mossie in my old backyard, using an 808 cam:

Love me a Mossie!

Best warbird fly past I ever experienced was in Hamilton a few years back: Lancaster, Mosquito, Mustang, Spitfire and Hurricane. 9 Merlins in formation! Marred only by a second Spitfire being grounded at the last minute due to mechanical problems.

Iíve picked up two of these recently on Ebay in good condition, theyíre great for our weekly indoor flying sessions.
Iíd be all over a nicely done new version in any size from 1s upwards, but I donít think warbirds are where HH think the market is now

Mossie 21S BL? Oh yeah! I'd be in on that one, for sure!

I, too, still have my old E-flite one. Sure was Col!

We really need a nice F7F Tigercat! UMX and/or 1.5-2m size - with scale flaps & retracts. Plus folding wings on the 1.5-2m version!

This might be unpopular, but how about a nice 2m wingspan Carbon-Z PC-21?
The FMS one flies well, I'd love a giant 6S powered one to buzz around

Very nice, but it's too large for me without folding or removable outer wing panels. I'd hate to remove the entire wings w/motors & 6 control surfaces for transport. Guess I'd prefer a 1.5m w/folding outer wing panels, just 'cause I could fit it in the plane hauler without having to take it apart.

We also need a UMX version!

MotionRC also has a 1600mm version, it's super nice. I have seen one a few times at the club. Really, really nice flyer. While I will always agree about UMX stuff (just love walking out back and flying whenever I have a spare moment!!) the 1.6 Flightline F7F is not so large that you couldn't get it nicely in your plane hauler!

Just checked out the FL 1.6m version. Very nice!

But still....I'd LOVE to see E-flite come out with one. Especially a UMX version with quad flaps!
