My first Top Flite P51 kit crashed after I updated the software on my Taranas radio. The trim worked in reverse because of the way I set up the servos. I bought a couple sheets of the pre-cut out...

The Hitech servos burn up inside. The wires melted. They are crap! I'm sticking to Futaba from now on. Never had a 3003 or 3004 servo fail yet. And I typically put them through their paces. I don't...

No wing kits. But you can buy the sheets of cut out balsa parts direct from Top Flite.
I save the templates from my kit builds so if I need to repair a wing I can trace and cut out the wing fillets.

I'm still getting used to the weight and the Saito 150 with a 16x8x2 prop launches this plane with even a blip of the throttle.

I never try to land a Warbird on the first section of runway. I like...

Has anyone tried a Saito 120S or Saito 150 in this plane?
If so how did it balance? Tail weight needed?

And how does a Saito 100 balance in this plane?

Thanks.

Did you need much extra weight up front to balance?
I tried a Saito 100 and it needed so much weight I used a Saito 120S instead.

I had a Saito 120S in mine for two years, and now I'm using a Saito 150.
Lots of power and speed with either engine. The 150 really works well :)

As you build, keep the tail as light as you can.

Has anyone tried a Saito 120 or Saito 150 in this plane yet?
I'm wondering how it balanced with the extra weight. And also how the engines fit?

I tried a Saito 100 in my Top Flite P-51 and it would have required a lot of lead to balance. Did you have to add much weight to the nose?
Is yours a kit or ARF?

I'll have to try that prop. I am using a MAS 12x6x2 on mine. It could use a little more speed. I'm still happy with it the way it is.
Just flew it last weekend.
Fun plane to fly.
