Default For speed....

.....I've seen 'em both fly, and the Midget
Mustang has way more potential for speed
then the Shoestring.

The Midget HANDS DOWN!!

Plus, if you go with WM, you'll have your choice of 4 different color schemes!

I had the yellow one with a ST .90/pitts muffler....an awesome combo!

Do not get the white one. I have this and it is a nightmare to keep up with. I just recovered it a few weeks ago.

I am running a OS1.08 I have another oS 1.08 in that GSP P51 you may have seen floating around here. They are very reliable.

I have pictures on a roll I'll be getting developed this week sometime. I recovered in a red/white/blue thing. Loks good but when I was done i realized it looks darn near like a Texas state flag. Oh well, mistakes happen.

Default let's go racing

RAP1404

if you want to go racing you need to find the club in your area that supports racing. what are the chances i happen to know of one in ft lauderdale. and we would enjoy having you as beginner in racing.

lots of support in the SEMPRA org. email me or call 305 205 9500 and i'll point you in the right direction.

you can get started in 424 pylon for only a few hundred dollars and have more fun than just going fast (there's nothing wrong with that either).

where do you fly now. RR

Default ahhhhh

i fly with the amps a couple times a year. the amps club and the mppa (my club) were incahoots with pylon racing, but the elders at the amps club killed it before it could breed. if your serious about racing we can still point you in the right direction. we'll be racing in jax fl. the end of this month and racing in apopka the first week of december "tangerine". there having 424 all 3 days.

424 is the entry level Q500 PYLON that you can start with. RR

Default Dago Red!!

To all that replied thanks for your input. I just ordered a Dago Red p-51 from quantum models which im going to put a 61fx with tunned pipe

to Teamfutaba

in 424 racing you could only use quickies??because if i could use the p-51 i would go up there to join your club i would really like getting serious with racing

thanks

What do you mean extreme speeds? What engine are you running? what kind of flying are you doing with it? I race several WM P-51's. as do several of my team mates. More info Please.
