Great choice Monza Red, who cares about verticals in such a sweet scale model?

Well done

I got it at a good price. The previous owner had fitted it into a Fun Fly and was disappointed with the results!

No surprise at all .... its gutless.

I have mine now in a 46 size VQ FW190 .... a model that is designed for a 40 - 50 sized 4str .. it flies that nice - but forget about verticals ... it will go vertical but very soon falls away ..

Its a good engine if you want sedate scale like ... but nothing more.

Hi ...

Its ok if you don't want to do much with it ! Stick t in a WWI job and you get the sound and if weight / prop is good - a reasonable flight.

But I can say that my 58" Extreme Flight Extra was useless on it ... I even gave it to a really good 3D pilot and he just shook his head after trying it.

In my VQ FW190 (46 size) ... its nice because you are not asking it to 3D ...

First thing you notice is the ease you can turn it over against compression compared to say an ASP 4str ...
