Default Warbird Racing

We are looking to shore up our warbird racing rules this winter, and I am looking at the available 40 sized warbird arfs.

I've looked at NitroPlanes, World Models, Lanier, and Kyosho and all look pretty good. Who are some other manufactureres of 40 sized warbirds that I can add to our allowed lists?

Engine will be a stock .46 OS AX.

World Models is your best bet. Darn nice P-51s and Dagos with Retracts. Around $180 or so.

Yep, we have a few of the WM mustangs, I just want to add a little diversity. Its tough when you get three of the same yellow Rockwell mustangs in the air.

The AK planes are the same CMP planes that NitroPlanes are distributing. We have a couple guys with the CMP corsair and P40, the planes look very good, but from what I heard and saw, the P40 did not fly very good.

didn't know nitro did CM PRO as well, but then I dont fly small warbirds either, I like the large scale warbirds , which some of mine are CM PRO..the larger models fly really well .. the only one I dont have is the P40 which is next right after my KMP ME 109 is done ..I'm sure you guys will find something ......

Get the Red Candy Man and add some white to it and make it look like an older Strega. Shoot, most of my fleet was recovered when I bought them just to make it different.

I had a Candyman that I use to race, I thought it was an ugly plane. Midaired it the first race, which I rebuilt just to have it crashed at its 2nd race due to a freq conflict. Redone as a Strega would look nice.
