Default RE: After your trainer, how long did it take you to fly a war bird?

I would like to add that on the PTS Mustang you should fuelproof the firewall by mixing 50/50 rubbing alcohol and epoxy then brush on, it will only take 10 min and go along way toward keeping the stang in tip top shape. Also use thread lock on the motor mounts and muffler. I didn't even bother with the 3 blade prop and ran a 2 blader with a 2 3/4 inch spinner. I ran three tanks thru the evo engine before taking it up and had to fine tune the needles, it's better as a beginner to due that on the ground than a flame out in the air. I have already moved up to a hanger 9 p-47 .60 size it flys just like the PTS except that you have to land it a little faster. Good luck and enjoy if you have any questions pm me I was in your shoes earlier this year and got lots of great tips from the guys here and at the field.
