Default TopFlite 1/5 P-51B conversion kit??

Looking at getting a TF 1/5 P-51 ARC. Interested in turning it into a "B" model. Just wondering if anyone out there knows of a conversion kit that can be purchased to do just that. Thanks for any info. Jon

Do a search for the RCU thread for Leo Spychalla as he was/is producing a conversion for the TF Giant P51 from D to B

You should be able to get those parts straight from Top-flite. I don't think they offer a "conversion kit" but you can get/ order the individual parts of the 1/5th scale "B/C" kit they once kitted. ck their web site.

I make a "B" / "C" conversion for the TF ARF & ARC. It fits the "B" model canopy that is still available from Top Flite and Great Planes. Send me a PM with your e-mail address and I can send you the ordering instructions and installation details. Leo
