How do we order one? Will the landing gears tend to break on this one?

On the fence now! T-28D, or BF-109. OMG, I love tail draggers, I like the looks of this, plus already cut out for flap with servo pockets. I agree and retracts and it is a no brainer. Still I would prefer USA over the Germans though.

Gawd – if it’s going to keep you up at night, just leave the mains off.

lol it's a gift for my dad , and i'll hate it if he does a hard grass landing and rips 'em off. But it's going to be out of my control. I've seen it happen with the Corsair. and it's the only thing holding me back from buying it. I want to know more about how sturdy that main gear is, and if you can bend it back into place like the Cub or run the risk of tearing it out of it's mount like the corsair.

The more accurate swastika insignia for the tail IS AVAILABLE! seperately. As it should be. I was going to paint it on there anyway. Wife seems relieved that once again Horizon took care of my Christmas gift needs this year. This promises to be the best PZ model yet. [X(][X(]

Ooooooh I think I just drooled on myself a bit. Too bad the Parkzone website seems to be down? I tried to look at the Messerschmitt page but it gave me an error message, so I tried the ultra-micro Mustang and T-28 pages as well... same deal. Anyone else experience that? I was able to watch the preview video though... it looks amazing in the air!

Canadian, yes, I had the same experience as you earlier in the day. Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me that PZ has come up with yet another milestone in modeling. I can't imagine anything greater for modeling progress than this fabulous 109! I can hardly wait to get my hands on one! I strongly suspect that every fighter pilot enthusiast on the planet feels the same way and crashed the website. Unlike glorious government behavior, reality actually takes some time to get things more or less right.

Okay, enough of this - today I plan to maiden my newest SPAD and intend to fly all demonstration fighter maneuvers on the first flight. My GUNFIGHTER will be in the trunk of my "aircraft carrier" just in case.

Please wish me luck!

[X(] Sinai, I wish I could say "roger that" like you so kindly did on the Spit thread. I haven't yet been able to get my msntv 2 system to play that video. Can you believe all the the excitement this 109 is causing? We are getting quite a thread going here about a plane nobody is flying yet. Imagine how much fun we are going to be able to have when everybody who needs a Messerschmitt is actually flying one!

I enjoyed a partially successful day today flying the new SPAD and the GUNFIGHTER. The original plan was to fly only the SPAD using various batteries. After finding a weak spot after a few hard landings the decision was made to finish out the day practicing with the P-51.

The new 3 cell 1250mAh 25c battery's unexpected performance and possibly the sun conspired to cause enough disorientation that I ended up damaging the P-51. I need a lot of practice and will not be putting on any demonstrations in small spaces any time soon with any of my fighters.

See you on the Spit thread.

The long awaited Parkzone Messerschmitt Bf-109G has landed. A beautiful plane she is!

Come see the build and first maiden flight review!

“She looks great in the air and she flies just like a war bird. I own all the new PZ warbirds from the T-28 forward and this is hardest to fly and definitely the most difficult to land”

Hello all,

It looks like a tough bird to fly on. I am concerned about this thing doing nasty tip stall or snap roll at low speed. DP

picked mine up yesterday, 30 min and I was ready to go. I could'nt wait for my wife to get home to shoot some shots while I flew so all I have are the pre flight shots, but wow, flys nice! Powerful enough, and flys rather scale like, especially the ground handling. Give your self a good run up and come in rather steep and hot to flair out but keep up speed...the narrow gear is in a rather scale like placement and does not like you mashing the rudder while on the ground. Keep the plane on the ground and get your speed up slowly and you'll be fine. Just DONT jam the throttle and yank the rudder lol


Other than that, I love the kit!

Went and flew mine this am........flew well, tracked nicely on the ground. Very scale like take off. I noticed my ail. throws were a little too much, and was pretty twitchy. Forgot to put in some expo. I found that while in a bank and pulling alot of elev. and it will def. snap! I chopped the throttle and easily recovered. Setting up for landing was easy, but it does land a bit hot. I ordered flap servos and the swastikas this evening. All in all this is a fun airplane. Good scale looks too. Been awhile since Ive had this much fun. Makes me want to get into elec. jets! Parkzone has a winner here.........

LOL! Not so fast turbo.........t-28 has tricycle gear, 109 is a tail dragger. In the air they are prob. similar, but on the ground thats a whole different ball of wax. Also, tail feathers on 109 are small-giving less authority in the air.

Ah what the heck........PZ sells tons of replacement parts for both Try them both and compare for yourself lol

The 109 taxis and flys totally different then the T-28, it requires faster landing speeds and is alot more sqirrelly like my gas warbirds....It definetely is no way near a begginer aircraft in my opinion

I would have to agree, although you may have no problem once in the air, the take off and landings of this one might not be right for you. I'm picking up the flap kit today to see if that may help abit with the landing speeds. I'll post any info if I get it in the air.

Hello all,

For those with grass field, DO NOT INSTALL THE LANDING GEARS! I bought the first one in Columbia SC and also the first one to lost one in a crash. My test pilot landed the plane a few times but ended up in some nasty ground loops. On the third flight, the left wing folded in flight due to the damage from previous rough landings that we did not catch. Everything is completely destroyed. However, I got to fly it and I felt it tracked better than the T-28. When there is little wind, it is VERY easy to fly. Absolutely no bad tendency. I will order another but this time, I will leave the gears off because we only have a grass field. DP
