I had a pretty good flying day but bent a strut. Totally my fault. I kept wanting to plant the tail early on touchdown and I sent it airborne again and plopped it down. Little bit of a crosswind so I think that’s what made me rush it. Does anyone know if this strut is a 145 series or just an older 622 strut with the threaded tubes? The new 622 don’t have them.I bought these second hand off an old top flite kit.I called robart and left a voicemail so I’ll see if the top ole is are interchangeable. I really like the threaded tubes perpendicular to the scissors for door mounting.

Has anyone have ever used a different brand covering that matches the Monokote Aluminum color on the P51? I want to purchase Hobbykings Solid Silver or Bright Silver, but wasn't sure if their color matches the Monokote. Thanks.

I like the Brushed aluminum from Hanger 9, looks like real polished aluminum, has a grain that needs to be oriented.
