Hobby Lobby's P-51 and/or corsair


Just saw these airplanes on their webpage and was wondering if anyone has converted them or have any info about them.

http://www.hobby-lobby.com/p-51.htm
http://www.hobby-lobby.com/f4u_corsair.htm

I tried to search for information but had no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd like to know how much hassle it would be to add ailerons.

There have been a number of previous threads, try Flying Styro Corsair, ect.

The F4U flies very well with just the rudder and elevator, will even roll with this setup. Ailerons are possible and have been done but as I recall the modeler decided that it was not much of an advantage.

The Mustang has less wing area than the F4U and is a handful with the 4 bladed prop (really need to clip the blades a bit). Might be a candidate for some direct drive setup.

They are beautifully detailed, I'm sure that many will be built for static display. They even have a detailed cockpit with seat and instruments. I really am a sucker for scale models, particularly warbirds.

these are the flying styro kits. I figured that was what they were but not for sure. Thanks for the quick replies.
