Absolutely HD.

A tail heavy large scale warbird will crash, ive never seen a incorrectly CG'ed big warbird go home in the same condition it came to the field.

For a newby its worth mentioning if your new to warbirds take a moment to remember what they were made for and fly em accordingly.

They dont grovel around at 1/8-1/4 throttle without incident sooner or later. Ive seen so many beautiful planes destroyed by people trying to fly them like trainers. They are fast agile aircraft and will not bite you if you keep that throttle in the upper half of the stick.

Also some warbirds tend to land at higher speeds than other aircraft but a P-47 with full flaps down are easily landed.

Good luck with the maiden.

Cheers BK
