Has anyone picked up any of these warbirds yet from the Hitec Weekender series?
I was at the Arizona Electric Festival this past weekend, and the Hitec guys had a booth across from mine, and they had these cute little warbirds on their table, a P-51 Mustang, an F-4U Corsair, and a Hawker Hurricane.
I spent the weekend watching them fly, and they seemed to be very nice flyers. Everything I saw was with the stock power systems. They fly on 2S 1000mAh packs, so batteries are cheap.
Yesterday I decided to drop a Benjamin on one, and got the Corsair. I grabbed the bottle of CA and had mine together in under 30 minutes. It's billed as "Plug-In To Go", or "P2GO". All that is required is a receiver and a battery.
I did not have any 2S lipos on hand, so I didn't get to fly it yesterday, but I should be able to get something this weekend and will give a full flight report.
So, are these just too new that not many people have them yet? I like them in that they are in between what a UMX and ParkZone model would be. I like the smaller stuff, but the UMX to me just seems too small. These look to be just right.
Pat that's a nice looking Corsair, and I never saw any ads, or hype on the other forums either for this series of planes. Hope you do a review on it. I added a link to the Hitec website figure it would make it easier for folks to see it. The rest of the series are good looking too. http://hitecrcd.com/products/airplan...arbird/product
