When Nitroplanes was selling FMS/Airfield planes, the radio system WAS FHSS. Don't know if it's still the same, I imagine it probably is, but I had a receiver from a crashed FMS 800mm P47 (no fault...

Didn't get the Mustang (yet), but DID get the U.M. P40, and despite all the bad press about the plane being under-powered? We don't think so, it'll fly circles around the U.M. Spitfire, I hear-tell...

Over-Blinged= rocket pods, bombs, drop tanks, etc. While they look great, it seems to me they make the plane a bit "draggy", the landing gear doors close up nice and tight for a clean wing surface,...
