Default Phoenix Models 55cc Mustang ARF

Has anybody tried this plane, or are there any threads on it available for study? The plane seems to fly well, but I was wondering if anyone has re-fitted it for larger wheels?
Any response would be appreciated!

I just found it. As stand off scale it looks ok. However, The spinner should be 5.5" not 4.5". The Wheels should be 5.25", they look like 3.5". If you want a Mustang, it will work. If you what something closer to scale, try Top Flite or Hangar 9.

It appears that nobody has tried, nor are there any threads on the plane for study. Lots of YouTube videos in any case.

Lifer, yes I have this bird and like it alot. Flys great and lands nice , looks like a Mustang but it is not the plane to get if you want to go to scale contests. The construction is very good and compares favorable to the Top Flight giant Corsair I am assembling now. The plane has some unique features like a full hatch with the canopy , makes set up and field work easy just like your average Edge Extra, etc , etc, plug in wings and removable stabs and fuse easily breaks down to two sections for transport in smaller vehicles
