RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

Yes, the stock NiMH pack is not included with the ARF. The stock motor and prop (with your ESC) work very well using a 2-cell ThunderPower TP7302 730mAh pack from Hobby Lobby. You will have a bit...

I got some video of my Micro P-51. It was a grey day with winds between 5-8mph but the little warbird flew just fine. Although I missed it on the video, we did loop it without a problem. The only...

RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

Thanks for the aileron tip. I have one of those Dubro Micro Aileron System kits (#850) so perhaps I may use it on my Spitfire model. The P-51 seems to have plenty of agility with only a rudder but...

RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

Thanks, I didn't know Estes had even more versions. I've not been into micro flight for several years now. About 6 or 7 years ago, I remember having the first indoor aerobatic plane that could do...
