      Beautiful repaint of a scheme I hadn’t seen before. very nicely done. Hope to see some inflight shots at some point, bet it would look spectacular and very realistic.

      best regards BMK

        I read back through the posts it appears that someone is having retract issues it brings to mind the FMS 190 the 1400 mm

        When used with a spectrum AR 10 receiver they didn't work

        They did work with an orange receiver

        I'm not sure if they worked with futaba

        After the gear issue FMS had the motor issue magnets just flew out of it

        Lots of guys forget some of us don't and don't get me started on the FW 190 struts ....

        Anyhow every day I look at my grounded 500 dollar p51 it reminds me of my mistake

        And now I have a p47 razorback grounded because of a substandard esc

        Double reminder

              I’ve really enjoyed flying this model. The plug in wings are definitely interesting I’m curious how long these will hold up but only time will tell. Right off the bat one thing I’ve noticed whether it be my experience or anyone I’ve seen on YouTube, this bird definitely pulls hard to the left on take off. Big scale prop and 6s power be ready on that right rudder. It’s also not the easiest war bird to land. The FMS 1450mm P-47 takes that prize. Just remember to keep your speed up on this bird on landing or it will bite you. One thing I do have to say is I feel it’s a bit expensive when you compare this to it’s rivals from Flightline and FMS..... I know it’s got safe and smart but to most guys buying a 6s warbird it’s not worth the extra $100 expense.
              in the end I definitely think this is the best mustang on the market in my opinion if you get past the price it truly flys magnificent. Let the plane do the talking and check out the video.

                You raise some very interesting points. It is quite expensive but on the other hand, I've converted my FMS 1450mm P-51 to 6s and it's probably cost me well over $100.00. I have yet to fly mine so I'll take your warning about the landing. My FMS is quite easy to land. Insofar as pulling to the left, all my big tail dragging warbirds do that - FMS P-51, FMS 1700mm Corsair, Flightline Corsair. I find that if I don't acceleration on take off so much, it doesn't pull nearly as much. I pick up speed more gradually and it's much easier to control the left pull.
                The quality of this Eflite P-51 is superb, much better than the FMS version of old.

                  Thanks for posting, Wes! Good points all around.

                  I happen to like the chosen scheme. It's different, which I support. Are you going to give this one your airbrush's light weathering touch, or a full repaint?

                    Hmm, I've had some birds that tend to a la main left as well, a small shim on the left motor mount screws might help a bit. Worked great for me with the FMS Pitts.

                      Alpha well funny enough we actually did some light weathering to her on an earlier live show. It was calling me to do the exhaust. Lol but Keven wanted this one to stay cleaner so it stopped there. I to am one of the guys that really likes this paint scheme. It looks so good in person and it’s easy to see in the air.

                        The circuit was bypassed (removed) and the motor was controlled with a separate controller like the JP Electric Retract Controller.
                        Most folks were getting them from RC Castle. https://www.rc-castle.com/index.php?...roduct_id=7458
                        I've got 2 in my private inventory stock.
                        Well...the saga continues.....After sending HH the photos showing the failed motor boards, they acknowledged that new boards needed to be redesigned and they would ship me a pair of gear as soon as they are available (earliest is mid-June but likely much much later). So I went the route of the JP electric controller...modified my retracts accordingly and it works...sort of. The gear open and close sometimes...not all the time (which is a no go in my book for flight). The tail retract was reversed so it would go up when the mains came down and vice versa so I pulled it and resoldered the motor wires for reverse polarity....of course, the tailwheel is now dead. What should be a very simple solution...isnt. The solder joints are fine (but putting that tailwheel back together is a b&#ch!.) If the mains worked reliably, I would just elect to fly it with the tailwheel locked down. Since they don't, this bird will likely never see air under it's wings. Collosal waste of money...I guess I deserve it buying an ARF with unproven components

                              I have the E-Flite P-51D 1.5 BNF and the DX8 G2 radio, when I first got the aircraft, the telemetry was working, I'm familiar with the in-flight telemetry menu and the System Settings menu, the telemetry stopped working and I'm getting the voice error message from the radio saying "Battery no data" and "Flight Pack voltage 655.3 volts", I can see the screen settings but no warnings. I need help, I've tried numerous things and no go, any suggestions?

                                Are you using the same battery?
