P38 would also be nice, although you would imagine they would probably do a Corsair or ME-109 first.!!!

I cut my teeth on Parkzone/Hobbyzone products and, although I've moved on to "standard electronics", I feel they offer a great and cheap way for many people to enter this sport. Looks like they have another winner!

The RTF has a 5 ch FM radio with 3 wire servos, not the 5 wire PZ/HZ. The PNP plug n' play would be a good one for you, if you have the radio gear to add to it.

I know they sell a PNP version, I'm just saying I started out with their equipment (A Challenger and 27B). I might just slap one of those planes together but I'll probably buy the body parts and throw my own gear and motor into it. If the body parts are too expensive (normaly not from them) then maybe I'll just hotwire a homemade one out of foam. It's a great looking plane.

I have already ordered mine but, I have a bad feeling that I won't get it until August.[&o] The wait list is already crazy because, of supply and demand. I just hope they release enough.

Looking at the Hobbyzone website on the PNP you have to supply Tx, Rx, LiPo, and Charger.

Not near of a good deal as the RTF considering the LiPo alone is $59.99 on their site.

So you get the Tx, Rx, and Charger free...basically!

I am looking for a parkflyer and was ready to order the FW190 but saw this with the LiPo, nice Tx, and Brushless.

I currently fly only nitro and have a 9CAPS I was going to use with the Trojan but since the package deal is such a buy that is what I will go with.

I am anxiously waiting for this to come out. Has Parkzone had any issues with their first releases in the past? Or should I wait until the bugs have been worked out? Any other special equipment needed for the LiPo? The charger says it has a balancer.

Hobbyzone.com still says July. That sucks if they push it back again. I really dont want to wait that long to go fly at the local park.

I am wanting a parkflyer so I dont have to load up and go to the field, I want to run to the park for a quick flight during the day.

I wish I would have seen this price before I pre-ordered, $164.98 instead of $219.99!

I emailed hobbyhorse.com and they said mid August. I think I am going to pre-order from rcsupply.net. That is cheaper than a FW-190 for what I think is much more airplane.

FWIW I was at the LHS 07/12/07 and they called Parkzone, and they said they would have them sometime between July 20-25!
I put mine on back order at the LHS....and I'm first on the list for when they arrive! I can't hardly wait. I dont expect to see mine until maybe early August. I've got the PNP coming for $135.99
