An E-Starter or F-4U Corsair or even a Formosa if you have been well experienced.

My Pico Moth, TM400 and E-Starter. Nothing too special but they are awesome in the air and a blast to fly!

The Pico and E-Starter have Himax outrunners. TM400 is stock brushed motor. Both moth's have flying wires.

The Pico has tons of time in the air, the E-Starter is flying nearly everyday (weather permitting) and the TM400 is the best looking when its flying against a nice blue sky.

Here's my specially scruffed up (to hide the fact that it would still look scruffy if I was trying my best) T-6. Not flown yet so although she looks high mileage she's still got zero hours clocked. GWS 2215 motor and although I wasn't particularly careful about the weight and apart from paint there's three coats of polycrylic floor shine on her I'm pretty pleased/surprised to see that the AUW including flight battery is 17.4 ounces.

Note no landing gear though. In fact with the 3 cell 800 20C PQ lipo that I use she balanced dead on 90mm (which is mid-range) without any ballast or other fiddling.

Note to craxmanpat the FW 190 spinner has gone!!

Note to Mr Lin see how much better they'll look when you make GWS pilots like this!

Beautiful looking bird, Roger. I almost said you have a ding in your leading edge and is that part of the weathering?

Break a leg on the maiden.

Once again stand up and take a bow for a job well done, Mr Lin should use your pictures for the GWS Catalog!

GWS Zero converted into a Macchi 202 or 205 (take your pic). Maidened it today and it flew fine. Looked neat in the air. Some club members took some of the plane in the air and I will try to get some pics of it up soon.

You are my kind of guy. She is a doll. This is a very nice way to model. I bet it inherited the great qualities from the GWS Zero model also. I would like to see more modeling conversions like this. Sure is eye appealing. Any vids?
