RE: should I grab this plane?

Not a bad maiden flight. You need to fix that high speed needle though. It kept going rich when hanging on the prop. Maybe Pete737 can give you some SUPERIOR engine tuning tips.

MVVS Ignition

Can anyone tell me if the programmable electronic ignition module for the MVVS 58 will work with the 45? A friend has a 45 and we suspect a faulty ignition and want to try the one from my 58.

RE: Warbirds Over Wanaka

I believe it can be set up and airworthy for around $120k US. Would that be right? Time for a garage sale........................:) It would make for one giant scale rc warbird.

GT,
The Harvards put on a good display and I think there were 6 all up. They were called 'The Roaring Forties' and did some great formation flying. Some pics below.
