All great looking models on this page although I can't work out if 'tvcasualty's' pics aren't PC generated and not 'real' foam models. If they are real foam models they are great.!!

cbr600f2- I'm interested in this 'semi-full fuselage' P-51. Can you give us some details? What plan you used, motor, wing span etc,etc?? Also how does your Mustang fly?

Sure, here is the oringal build thread of XXL66's: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=859736

My posts are on page 5 of the thread including a crappy video that dosen't do the mustang justice. This thing flies GREAT! It's fast, it slows down nicely with flaperons, rolls are smooth and inverted flight is very nice as well. (of course you have to get the CG just right, it's not on the plans) I've also added the pdf's to make it easier for folks to start building.

Motor is a TowerPro 2408-21
SC: Mag8 18 amp
Prop: 8X4 APC E
Battery: Mystery 2200 15C
Servos: HXT900 9g X 3

Well, they're not quite that good! I've got two great photographers, my wife and my father. A few feet in the air and all the flaws magically disappear on these as there are pleanty of issues with all of them... The quality of the camera helps a bit too.

Great job TV. The idea is to look like the real thing and is what you've done very well.
