  • Fact is there are P-51’s. Whether decent quality is debatable.

      This. Most of the P-51's out there right now, I would touch with a barge pole.

        I’ve really liked the latest FMS/Eflite 1.5M version. Flies nicely, and had great scale lines. Good flight times, and plenty of power for me. With a bit softer tires, it lands great as well.

        I’d rather see Flightline tackle something unique that isn’t made every few years. A few suggestions:

        A-26 Invader (options for B and K models) (1.6M+)
        Dehavilland Mosquito (1.6M+)
        Hawker Sea Fury (1.6M, scale diameter 5 blade prop)
        Grumman Goose with retracts
        E-2 Hawkeye
        C-7 Caribou
        C-47 (2M+, scale retracts)

        • Sorry F106 but if you think the FMS or Eflite P-51's come close to the quality of the 1600 FL birds you don't get it...

          That said your list has a couple of interesting planes that HK has made or should make.

            I've never had an FMS or EFlite that I considered of unacceptable quality even if they aren't necessarily perfect in every way. That is not something I can say about Dynam, Flyfly or HK stuff, and even there with some effort I can get them to look and fly OK

            • I'm lumping a lot into that "quality" word. Fit, finish, paint, decals, that it looks like the real plane, no unpainted white foam, proper bits and bobs, good gear, struts, retracts, proper scale bits and decals... A dash decal. A proper pilot figure (all the brands need to work on this one)... And on some of the FW and FL planes need to work on too, scale looking wheels, spokes on the F-22 and Bronco??? And servo covers. And lights....

              • Well, I would love to see the F-22 in a 80mm twin. I have the A-10, and this size is AWESOME. I love the ease of flight seen on the F-22 videos, I just want it BIGGER!

                • One the first EDF's from Freewing back when Motion came on board was the 80mm A-6 (my 1st EDF) along with the F-86. Both are still around and sell well.
                  The A-6 would be a fabulous candidate for an upgrade to a twin 80mm and really put a nice presence in the air as well as possess superb flight characteristics in this larger scale.
                  Ya might say that I'm also quite favored with the A-6 since I served with them in the early 70's and have been jonesing for a larger version.

                  • Much as I'd like to see a new Sukhoi 35, I'd still prefer to see a subject that FW hasn't done before.

                      • I think the HE 162 should be doable with the technology we have today. Or an AR 234

                                • 100%!!! Has to have VTOL though. I'd accept a Marine F-35 too.

                                    I don't know if we've talked about this or not. This fellow has 3D print files for sale that you can make your own Harrier. It has rotating nozzles for VTOL and for airplane flight. Very impressive but I'm not talented enough to do all that's necessary to complete one.

                                    • xviper Yes, all very good. I have been following this guy for several months and his work is outstanding. He is also collaborating with another modeler whose is doing similar work but not for resale at this time. Great project and worth the watch Best, LB
