Default RE: New Hanger 9 p-51 mustang **Trainer?!?**

I am an instructor with our club, and to be honest with the new guys ( Girls ), in my opinion a taildragger is easier to fly than a high-wing model. We have had quite a few newbies "worry" about getting their first taildragger, until their first take-off with one, then for the most part, they quickly lose their "Goosebumps" and realize that a taildragger is much easier than they thought.
I think this plane will work fine with the "additions" Hanger 9 has put on it, but it may actually land too slow. The Nexstar was a pain to fly, until I removed the speed brakes, and anti-stall things on the wing......
Good luck to any of you getting this plane,and may you have many happy flights with it.....its pretty neat!
