Default Kyosho p-40 40 size

I ordered a kyosho p-40 warhawk 40 size, with flaps and retracts, my question is would you fellas go with a 46ax or a 55ax? And does anyone have any input how this bird will fly? I read its more of a low wing sport plane like the pulse rather than my TF p-51 that is more of a scale flight plane?? Is that true? I also read its one of the easiest warbirds to handle and land? Is that true? Thank you all.

go with a 55AX or really a 70- 4stroke would be a good choice for those kyosho planes

A 46 will do fine. But as bigtim said, if you can get your hands on a 56 - 70 4-stroke... [sm=thumbup.gif]

I was thinking of going with a 4 stroke but I am not really looking for scale sound etc for this plane since I have the TF p-51 with the saito 100, I was mainly going to do this plane for speed and a nice sport plane as stated in the review they used a webra 55 on the spitfire. And flying a warbird of this size would help me get ready to maiden my tf p-51. Also how is the quality of kyosho planes, this will be my first kyosho plane. I know there cars and helis are very well built but not sure about the planes, any input? Thanks again fellas.

I don't know if you've ever seen a YouTube video of a real P-40 Warhawk, Jacked69. But to be honest, the full-scale beast actually sounds like an MP15 switcher on Run 8: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RshhBRlsEjc

An even better one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgcR2yT7NDM

Just think of what a 640-12 can do! But I'll admit, it's a little big for that .40 sized plane.
