Thanks for all the info. I tried to google flying clubs and all I found was one in Illinois.
I had no idea AMA's website even listed them. I was searching their website when I first got into the hobby. I would much rather fly at a club rather than the industrial park where power lines are like AA guns trying to always shoot you down.
Back to the Mustang... speed is not my worry because the Nexstar with the "training wheels" off is pretty dern fast if you ask me. I just didn't know if I should expect any different flight characteristics out of a low wing plane. I did convert my Nexstar to a taildragger to get used to that. That went really good... as long as I can take off directly into the wind. I'm not sure if the Nexstar's rudder is quite big enough to be a taildragger.
