Default RE: ParkZone P-51 Mustang RTF

Libertarian,
Here in our local group the guys are using .5 mm x 3mm (1/64" x 1/8") carbon strips taped/glued to the outer top and bottom surfaces of the wings This seems to fix any folding problems and while it does not look as good as internal tube you use it is easier to apply and does not cause the wing to straighten out. Generally use very thin double side tape to fix carbon to wing and a strip of filament tape ove the top.
the carbon strips are what are used for 3D foamy wing strengthening. Many model suppliers have it in Australia.
I have not found any braces neccessary for the focke wolf as yet.
