RE: AirShowRC VERTIGO Rebel

Greg,

I think you should just ship the plane to AZ and let Bob Ruff and Mike Pope handle the maiden. Between the two of them it will work out good. Ya know there is lots of talent out here in...

RE: EDF Predator UCAV from Nitro Planes

How did the maiden go?

Has anyone got one of these planes in the air yet?

The Himax 96 plug and play setup should be a really good match for this plane, 6S, 1300 watts.

RE: 3-Blade Prop for Hangar 9 Spitfire .60 ARF

RE: BT 1/5 Spitfire Conversion

First, We are not really inventing the wheel with this plane. There have been many many similar conversions. All you have to do is read the threads.

RE: Top Flite Giant P-51 Conversion
