    Love my cat. She is retired now though because the retracts legs are like butter. She cant even stand on her own weight. I decided the money needed to spend is not worth the cost of flying her anymore. It has the pitts motor in it and a 75 skywealker esc. MAS prop and she just rips through the sky. Its the plane I tought myself to fly warbirds with. What a amazinf flyer though. I love hellcats. My uncle was on teh Uss Saratoga with 75 cats. He was also a witness to the nuclear tests that sunk her. What a great plane with a amazing kill ratio.

            Hi we are expecting a container 2-3 weeks out so we will have more. This is a nice plane for sure would love to see them have a wildcat as well. The blitz has the cool retracts but that's also its weak point. Happy flying guys !!!

              yeah mine is just finally not worth repairing. It was my trainer when I learned to fly 4 years ago. Amazing flying plane that does whatever you ask it to.

                Quick question. Does anyone notice that the nose dips when you turn? Wondering if it is my dumb thumbs. It could be the wind. Didn't notice it before until this weekend. It wasn't that windy, but the plane does hate wind.

                  I never noticed with mine, that said these things fly so light, you fart it could blow it over.

                    Mine is no longer light. Only 4 flights since I redid it. Mine is almost 5.5 lbs now. I'll fly it next weekend and see if it repeats the characteristic.

                              Anyone have a good strut recommendation. Getting ready to buy a new one of these and want to avoid the butter struts.

                                Looks as though there is now a v2 can we get new info on this from motion? were the struts improved or just the retracts not working in teh cold?

                                  I ordered the FMS V3 Corsair retracts. They bolt right in, but the strut needs to be modified. I used the FMS P-40 struts.

                                    I used these on mine with some trimming of the wheel well...however I believe it would be better to just get a V2.

                                      I've never had a issue with the retract itself its just the struts are so soft.

                                        So far, I've been lucky with my landings on this plane and have not bent a strut. Lord I know I just jinks myself lol next one I'll probably snap on completely off lol! But if I do it's good to know where the go to replacements are.
