  • FMS P-51 Gunfighter with the *Real* P-51 Gunfighter

    A great customer of ours, James Potenza, recently took a backseat flight on the historic P-51 Gunfighter, piloted by Colonel Larry Lumpkin. He brought along his finely weathered FMS Version 8 P-51D Gunfighter which he had purchased from MotionRC for a one of a kind photo op. James was kind enough to send us these pictures with his approval to post them. Feel free to drool all over your keyboards, and post a thank you to James here and a bill for the damage.

                What a golden opportunity. I have many such photos with A6 and EA6 Prowlers while at Whidbey Island (Oak Harbor, WA). I wish a had a model then. It would have been so cool to get a photo with this group. You are a blessed man!

                    That is just outstanding!!!!

                    Really been windy here in NE IA. But managed a few flights with the IronAss tonight when the wind wasn't so bad right before sunset. Caught some long grass on a landing and broke retract doors, as you can see in the picture.(Hope that Freewing spare parts shipment arrives soon)
