Your plane is going to look great judging from that thread. Hope you don't change your mind![/QUOTE Naaaa once i decide on scratch building something i most times follow through with it .That one is the 4th scratch build i have picked out for foam but the balsa ones are piling up on me. I have balsa plans for this plane and i might try it in foam but i want one either way . I like it because hardly no one has built one and the crazyer it looks the better i like them . joe
Joe that plane looks interesting. I hope to see that one in the air be sure to video that. Has me curious

Its a pl-12 airtruk ,the first time i saw one was in a mad max movie long ago . I thought it was just a prop for the movie but found out later they realy existed . They were a crop dusting plane with a hopper inside or for carrying some cargo but they are cool looking. joe

Most everything is interchangeable amongst the line. Same motors, esc. servos. So now I just buy the airframes. The trick is learning how to hand launch them. I also reduce the end points and apply a good amount of expo. Take off on low (50%) and at altitude switch to high. Loads of fun for pretty low entry cost.

i was looking at this plane at HobbyB. it says "Great parkflyer for beginners and experienced pilots".

so i'm assuming it dosen't fly the fun fighters ? (rare bear). all the fun fighters seem to be sold out

It's small in stature, but big in fun! Just remember, it's an EDF, and not an overpowered one by any means, so keep the airspeed up. And don't forget to take her way up for a stall test to get the feel of your stall speed. Good luck!

I just went on vacation and have bought an E-Flight Apprentice S, Parkzone SE5a, and a Parkzone Focke-Wulf FW 190. I got smokin' deals on each one and couldn't pass them up. I bought all three pretty much at the same time.

Thanks Teach. Back has been a long going issue for many moons and I have learned to "Suck it up and Drive on" however I am getting close to retirement, less than 2 years, so its time to start taking care of myself at times...
The Stinger should be hear Friday I had a bit of a problem with HK and the original order but believe it or not HKs Customer Service did a really good job of taking care of me and the issue was all cleared up and the sent me a Stinger almost overnight, yep I said it a really good job.

Oh yeah ! I've been on a warbird kick lately. My FW-190 won "model of the month" at our club meeting Tuesday night so, I get a set of wings to put on the plaque I got for my first win. This was after I had actually crashed and repaired it once. Did a good job on the fix up. Looked new.
Das plane eats zee P-47's, P-40's and Spitfire for breakfast. LOL

My home office is near the front door of the house so I can intercept the UPS man before he rings the doorbell. I then carefully drag the big box into my office and then wait till everyone goes to bed. Then, I carefully tip-toe the box out to the garage (man-cave). Saves alot of splaining and answering the proverbial question:" Do you really need another plane?"

Through a contact on rcgroups, I found out these Tex birds are the same plane as those made by Kyosho.

The battery compartment also looks slightly different in your pics. Ill have to trim some of those humps to get the battery as far forward as it will go.

I do not recall a piece of metal being in my box. Ill look again.

I've been resisting the urge to buy a new plane for months, but I finally broke down and bought a 1270mm Dynam GeeBee Sportster from NitroPlanes.

Thanks. I'm nervous about NitroPlanes as I know over the years many have had bad experiences with them, but this seems to be a well-liked, nice flying plane. At 50", it's bigger than most of my models so that makes it a bit different from the usual for me (hope it fits in my car!)

I was concerned also but when I ordered the FW-190 and Spitfire I had no issues. Wish I could get on a free shipping deal. Did get a slight discount using RCG5 as a coupon code.

I have my mouse ready to click on the Freewing Mossie from Motion RC. Somebody stop me !

I got 7% off with some code or other. Eight bucks, but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Well? Like a ouija board, my mouse was pulled to the "place order" tab at Motion RC and I pulled the trigger on a Freewing Dehavilland Mosquito. With a 1400mm WS, this Mossie comes with CR props, retracts, gear sequencing doors and lights. Gadgets galore ! Motion RC is one of my new best friends in the online hobby shop world. Based in the Chicago area and Veteran owned, I received great service from them and free shipping to boot. Nigel would be proud of me. I now have a Spitfire, T-45 Red Arrows and soon to have a Mossie, all in British livery. God save the Queen !

Nice. I've noticed lately how many de Havilland planes are in my hangar and on my wish list.

I've ordered over $2000 in planes. Batteries, misc parts from Nitroplanes and hobbypartz. I've only had one plane come with broken latch on canopy (they immediately sent me another canopy). Shipping is quick and always well packed.
I don't hesitate to order from them ... Especially with 10% off or free shipping deals
