I love the idea of using a plane as a car, like in the Australian outback. For model planes, I like the high wing tail draggers. My HZ Supercub was the plane I...

If so, that...

Can I just say, that the pilot is putting other people at risk quite badly flying so close and so fast.

They flew fine, were stored at about 50% - using storage mode on the charger and have been at normal room temperature.

Nothing unusual has happened to them at all.

looks like the perfect plane for my son to throw around the sky. I don't suppose any one had any idea if there are any UK distributors? A quick Google doesn't reveal anything.

180ma is 0.18A, so yes. There is no problem there and depending on the battery you may be able to charge it a bit quicker than 0.2A.

I think I'm just a bit picky.

I'm not keen on warbirds.
It needs to look and fly scale. An awful lot of kits or plans end up with something unspecifically plane shaped.
