Default RE: ParkZone P-51 Mustang RTF

Just wanted to let everyone know about a bit of good luck on my end.

My not-local-at-all HS is shutting down and moving much closer. Because of this they were having a "closing sale" with prices slashed 30-40%. I managed to nab a fully-loaded fuselage replacement for my P-51D, as well as a buttload of spare parts for a great discount.

And today? Well, I took the pony up for a ride. It was a wonderful flight, save one glitch; I had to dial in full right aileron trim to stabilize her, and she didn't "snap" as much as I'd recalled. I verified that the ailerons were trimmed-out prior to launch, but after a picture-perfect belly-landing, I found that they had, in fact, slipped a bit.

Oh, well. Guess I'll tighten them up going forward.

Anyhoo, just thought I'd share some pics of the flight, courtesy of my son.
