RE: Gyro not working

The G62 does good. I think it flies pretty scale like. It cruises around at about 1/2 throttle. It will do a nice big loop and a descent stall turn. It certainly is not overpowered....

Warbirds

Hi All,
I am wondering if a Stearman painted in army colors is considered a warbird. What do you think? Would a Stearman be accepted at a warbird fly in?
