Sorry you have to sell but welcome to the Revvers!

I flew a 60 sized Top-Flite Gold edition P-51 with a YS-120... WOO-HOO! My brother bought it and it was glassed and heavy as heck- the 120 had enough power though

Vic any news??

HAHAHA lucky number 13 returns...after nearly 3 years of not flying, i still have my mustang with the saito 100 but the rest of my planes have pretty much been retired, i'm lookin to get back into this awsome hobby, so i got a heli, blade cp pro...just somethin to fly around the park, but my dad and i are gonna split a new plane to mess around on, if anyone is interested i would like to sell my mustang, it is fully built, saito 100, all metal gear servos retracts, probably less then 20 flights on it, never crashed. if anyones interested i'd like to get around 400 bucks for it you just add rx and tx and go. let me know, if no one is interested i'll probably strip it, but i really really do not want to seperate the plane from its more then 200 dollars worth of servos lol not to mention the 300 dollar powerhouse in the nose. just out of curiousity what are your guy's max speeds?

Hey any suggestions on a radar gun, id like to get one but unsure what would work good on a plane, has anyone that has one on here had good luck with any particular brand ? or know a good site to get one?
ive seen them for like only 100 bucks from bushnell i expected them to be a lot more.
but I would like to get a good review before i spending money on one,

(not that i need a good excuse to spend money on plane stuff)

That "190" patriot was a pretty rare case. But sometimes the amazing can happen.

btw.... if you need any help along the way on a jett fit-up, let me know. I don't live that far from you.

Its on the Hall of Fame prop-jet page , down near the bottom
http://www.jettengineering.com/hall/hall-propjets.html


Bob Holmes built and flew it.... SJ90 powered.

Bob also built this beast too for use at airshows - had a FIRE 95 engine on it , 5.25 lbs, dolly launched. GPS speed measured at 180 mph. Folks apparently noted that after it left the dolly, it climbed like an Estes rocket until it was just a dot, then Bob would put it through about a 1000 foot dive, leveling out across the field. Whoooshhh

Toothpick,

My personal experiments showed me that the best combo with the wonder was with the OS.15 LA + 7x7 APC... A 25 FX is somewhat heavy for this airframe and takes the fun out...
I get more than 20 minutes flights with it.

Do you mean MVVS-49? If so, it will scoot! Welcome to the "Revvers", if you have ever been within 10 feet of Bob Violett you AUTOMATICALLY qualify!

[sm=lol.gif] #174 ITS MINE ALL MINE [sm=lol.gif]. To tell you the truth my brother actually works for Bob Violett. My friend that i told you about that gave me the F-20. He told me to put the diamond dust together for him and the F-20 was all mine. I just got done covering it tell me what you guys think. he is putting a webra .32 on it. I am sorry the engine i have is a GMS .47.
