EMI P-38 Lightning

When I saw this on RCGroups I knew I had to have one. I had to order it from Taiwan. It's a bit smaller than the GWS kit (42" vs 48" wingspan), it ends up being more expensive since the GWS kit includes brushless motors, but it looks more detailed and scale-like to me. I covered mine with silkspan and poly-acrylic, then airbrushed the colors on. It has two BP-21 motors with two 20 amp ESC's feed from one TP 2100 3s battery. The maiden flight was marred by one motor detaching from the mount and acting as a large airbrake. Extensive repairs have been completed and she is ready to fly again.
