Sorry it took me so long to post this. I acquired a Ziroli P-38 from Mike Fearing out of Ohio last August. Flew it quite a bit at our warbirds event here in Tulsa last September. It was fantastic. Flies on DLE55s with all hitch servos. Cortex gyro smooths it out perfectly. Landings make easy because of the brakes. Anyways, thought I would share some photos and video. Sorry for the quality of the video.

been awhile since I posted an update on my 150" Ziroli so here is some video of the maiden flight and a few shots of her with some paint on.

Looks fantastic! Haven't been over the RCScalebuilder to check on progress in a while, looks like I missed a lot. Well done!
