Default Modeltech Fun Fighter P51 Not one reply?

Has anyone tried the Modeltech P51 Fun Fighter? I did a search but only found one post several years old indicating they had been discontinued.. Hobby People has them in stock now. The other post said they had an incidence problem with the horizontal stab.
Any remarks or experience out there? .

go to www.rcmf.info and check out the ats funfighters section - it's really popular in the UK - we have a racing class just for them called Reno 300 using the IS 32sx. They go pretty good!

Thanks Z.
I have one coming for xmas.
I saw one post about them that was from someone who had never flown one and it was negative.
I did see one that said the tail had an incidense problem. Any hints

I joined your suggested forum but am waiting for approval before I can log on.
Thanks again
DD

Opened the Modeltech Miss America P51 this AM. It is covered very well. Great looking paint on the cowl. The airfoil is quite thin so should be pretty quick.
Pushrods are kinda hokey but I imagine they will work just fine. I may use 2 ailerons servos in the event I need flaps.
