Thunderbird 18's in GWS P-38


Here is my recently finished GWS38 using two Thunderbird 18amp esc's. The engines are setup for differential thrust mixed to the rudder input. I do have a servo in place for the nose gear, but it is not needed. The engines are also set up counter-rotating and so have pusher 9x7x3 and tractor 9x7x3.
Plane also has two elevator servos, but they are located in separate engine booms which required the use of a servo reversing y-harness.

ESCs: Castle Creations Thunderbird 18(x2)
Motors: Park 370 outrunners(x2)
9x7x3 Master tractor and pusher
Rx: Ar6000
Battery : TP 3s 2100 pro-lite

So, how did this fly? Anyone else have a similar set-up?

It flew well...very scale like. Easy to land and take off. Great for low level passes
