RE: CMP Spitfire 120

RE: CMP Spitfire 120

Starcop,

RE: P-51 Take off Tips

Great advice Joe,

RE: P-51 Take off Tips

I believe in shimming the gear also but the type of field will sometimes dictate whether that should be done. As an example, my flying field is grass where you have a lot of drag, especially when...

RE: Lado Electric rotating Retracts for H9 P40

RE: CMPro P-51 (50 size) test flight crash

I don't blame ya. Would be so easy for them to correct their mistakes and have a nice warbird. I guess what got me started with CMP was I wanted a Corsair without retracts already installed so that...
