Default cox warbirds...?

Does anyone have or flown any of the cox micro warbirds? They have a 20in wingspan and they come ARF or now RTF! And the best thing is they are only 90$ RTF!

a lot of people have used these planes for conversions. i cant remember what people thought of the stock setup, but the planes themselves are good, and make nice flyers.

I ordered my ARF Cox warbird earlier this week. I am beyond anxious waiting for the plane. The RTF looks awesome but I have a feeling my ARF with a lipo is going to perform so much better. I spent $115 for the plane, esc, receiver, servos, lipo, lipo charger and J250 motor.

I actually bought a cox warbird off of this site for 30 dollars. I should have looked around. Oh well. It comes with a 130 brushed motor that supposedly has enough power to fly it at 5000 feet. I am at sea level.

I purchased a feigao 43 gram 2mm shaft brushless motor for 16 dollars from balsa products. I got a castle creations thunderbird 9 (8 grams) brushless controller and a gws micro stamp lite 4ch receiver (5 grams). I also purchased a two cell 340 mah kokam battery. I also got 2 3.6 gram blue arrow servos for 10.95 each at dragonfly.com . I am hoping this new set up will make this plane fly well. I will post again if I can find this post when the plane is finished and if I do not run it into the ground right after take off(this is usually what happens).

That's so true. I spent quite a bit for an 'all up' setup and now when moving up to larger planes Now you will find my ad listed as a complete setup with LiPo, and even a transmitter and all for $75 as a 'flight pack' on the buy sell listings. It seems there is some depreciation involved in the smaller setups. Wish I could have found such a buy when I was looking. Oh well I might as well pass the savings on and go buy more stuff - lol

Running my p47 with stock motor and fairly heavy futaba 3110 servos and reciever the plane flies just fine... I've never understood people's preoccupation with 50 mph 20 inch airplanes so brushless on these little beauties really makes no sense to me.

Hey Packyj,

In my last post I reported that I had/have two to the COX warbirds. BOTH the motors burnrd ot after about 4-6 flights. IF I ever bought another I would use the coreless mod they recommed for another $70.
