Awww, go ahead a give in...

My A1D was one of the sweetest flying warbirds. Very gently flier, not bad snap on stall (unless you push it ). Not all that fast on stock power, but, mine climbed forever. Just when I got some ordnance made up for it I crashed it during some 'dogfighting' with Tritle's Ryan P-47.

For the record, mine had a Mega 400/7/15 ourtunner (equivalent to andEFlite 480) on 3s2100 and 9x7 APC slo prop.
