All built & ready to go, just need a day without much wind for the maiden. 850MM wing span yank & bank model. Static 170W's should be more than enough for a plane the weight of a man size tissue! No but seriously I think it will be SERIOUSLY overpowerd with more than half throttle weighing just 650 gms including batt:tc: brushless motor for a model upto 900gm's & 3 cell 1200 li-po for a model originally designed for a 300 brushed motor & nimhs (some form of ancient propulsion!)
Dont think USA gets these models which is a shame because they are seriously sexy in the flesh, just hope it dont get stuffed 1st flight!

Got to thank Reflex for the video of Mustang (& maiden pilot), shame more of it wasnt in focus-it was the speed of P51 not cameraman;-), also not shown how slow it will actualy fly, it got down to walking speed-then vertical performance follwed in an instant later:$. So not a bad model made by one of our "iron curtain" allies these days (Czech Republic)

They have been available in the USA for quite some time.
Hobby Lobby sell 'em.
Alfa's are all good flyers. Their new A4 Skyhawk EDF is a blast.

Hey flyers, i was wondering if you can help me with a question I got. I want to buy this plane but was wondering if an A123 battery would fit in to the battery compartment... Would anyone mind letting me know the battery compartment size???

Thanks!
