    Here's a couple of mine.
    The Gripen is my first Df and I'm anxious to test fly it this weekend. The orange is a little of this and a dash of that to come up with an F18 profile. It flies great and as a wide speed enevelope.

    What size is the Gripen ? 50mm or 64mm ? Those P-51's tempt me every time i see one! Are the prop planes very hard to fly ? How different are they from the jets ?
    Most people start with prop planes but i went strait to jets so i'm wondering if that will make a P-51 harder to fly for me ? Seems like the landing would be tricky with that prop spinning up front?

    I think you'd like the Mustang as its a lovely plane to fly as stock with stock 9x6 prop. The forums say upgrade to the T28 parkzone 9x7.5 prop which I did and noticed a significant speed increase. Best and easiest mod is to install the rudder as it helps with turns and low speed landings.

    Landing is cake with them. Just slow to a stall and flop it on the grass. No worries about the prop as its feathering. Same with the prop jets with the motor set mid ways.

    The fan on the Gripen is 55 mm I believe. Forums have suggested a 4s pack for increased performance as a standard 3s 1300 doesn't have much performance & five minute flights. To Be Determined (TBD) as I'm yet to fly it. Still working up the nerves. They say it takes about a 100-150ft roll out and to attempt a hand launch is tricky as it would take a heck of a javelin throw to get enough airspeed. We'll see as I'm anxious to hit it tomorrow.

    Heck yea, a Wicked 4800kv on 4s and that thing will be so fast you wont even see it go by...lol Landings would be extremely fast and heavy though. Thanks for the tips on the P-51! I'm thinking the P-51 will be my next project after i finish the ones i'm on now.

    I programmed my F/A-18 for spoilerons. It works great. Nice, nose-high descents.

    I just ordered a couple of these. One for another field box and one for my electric supplies... Pretty cool idea! A hell of a lot better than a tackle box!

    Messing around today with a buddy and got in four hours today at the little spot. Also gave me a chance to test out the new D5100. Standard settings used as I haven't experimented as of yet.

    Here is my P-51 in action. Really noticable difference with just a prop change to 9 x 7.5 and stock motor. Still get 10 min flights with good speed increase on 2200's.

    Here's my crew getting ready this morning. Yes, they're on the breakfast table as I was up early....








    Here is my buddy with his Eflite 450. Yes, its a trainer type plane but its a lazy day flier. You'll see his F-16 later...

    F-16 in action. This one has the thrust vectoring but he likes the scale flight better.
