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

Like kerrydel said, offering the "complete package" is just a ploy to get the newbie flying JR radios. If you'll recall, The Empire did the same thing with the NexStar at first. You could only buy it with the engine, radio, auto pilot AND sim. The package was actually very reasonably priced, but they lost a lot of sales to guys like me who only needed an airframe and had no use for that other stuff. I'm pretty sure that you can now purchase just the model if that's all you want.

I imagine this offering will be similar. They'll push it for a while as a complete package, then just the plane and engine, then perhaps just the airframe?

At any rate, one thing is certain; these guys (Horizon and The Empire) are not sitting on their hands. Now, if this park flyer fad will just run its course so they can get back to concentrating on real airplanes...
