I will likely get one, but then I will have to strip it to paint or wrap it in a scheme I want, and that is a PIA.

PS E-Flite and Freewing are killing my attempt to stay financially solvent ;-)

I agree, I understand that they probably wanted a “pretty” scheme, but I would have preferred a more historically accurate one. We’ll see I’ve been debating on what to do with my 6 cells from the big T-28.

This looks very nice and I like the clip-on outer wing panels.....but how easy are they to remove without getting some knarly finger dents in the foam....I did not see a good place or hardpoint to grip.
Thx DSA

RC Flying Rules!
I like them both (Pilot Ryan and RC Geek), both are great pilots.

But how did they get the plane so quick?
Are Pilot Ryan and RC Geek pre production testers?

Or was the plane already out?

£500? Why so expensive? Even the outstanding flightline 1.6m warbirds from motionrc are significantly cheaper. Looks nice though.

I’ll have to look into this 51, seems pricey, but maybe it’s worth it.

My thoughts exactly and not even that big. Some of these foamies are getting more expensive and are getting smaller.

was the real deal that flew back in the day in that blue? (I like it) I see some air show pics in the blue but there are other pics in olive drab etc...


just saw your post Dora Nine... yes, that pic is what I see out there and then there's the air show variety...

Personally they could have left all the telemetry features off and dropped the price $240.

EXACTLY.

But being Horizon that is exactly what they won't do. They want to lock you into buying even more stuff you don't need (or in this case even want)..
