Default P-40 and Spitfire ARFs from Great Planes

Have I just missed these or are they new. I've not seen anyone talk about them. They look pretty nice.

Tom, I had not seen them before you posted them. They certainly look like they are up your alley!

Buckshot,

I have heard they are not very good ARFs. Cut your losses now and send it to me. Of course I will pay for shipping.

You're a naughty Grasshopper. You have quite enough waiting for your workbench as it is.

Sure, sure. I know Grasshoppers- they fly around and look cute like Jimminy Cricket, but they are secretly plotting how to get their little claws on your stash!

Buckshot, your stash doesn't give off Magic Smoke by any chance, does it?

I will second that motion- too many RC parts to be purchased with greenbacks. There always seems to be another receiver or set of servos that need purchase and installation.

Hey guys, just a heads-up.
I've got the GP Spitfire and I suspect that the P-40 is built much the same way. Very rugged construction (I've personally verified this if you know what I mean, LOL)
The Spitfire comes in a bit on the chubby side with quite a bit of wing loading which means you have to keep up your speed and I generally land pretty hot. It's a great flyer with the recommended set-up and is pretty fast (65-ish on paper), but it can also get you into trouble fairly quick. It gets real small real fast and the camo scheme WILL blend into certain backgrounds (a no-brainer I know). Mine is more of a handful than I'd hoped, but it's a rush to fly and it certainly keeps me on my toes.
BTW, if you should feel the need to put it into a stall while inverted, be sure to give youself more than 65ft of altitude or the results may be more spectacular than you'd like. LOL

"Tested Tough!" Cheers! BH

I'm pretty sure these models were intended for glow combat, so rugged construction is a given.

Not my cup of tea but I'm glad anytime someone takes a shot at a P-40

Good one. I was thinking that maybe they needed "Lipo" suction.
