very nice.Only thing is you can never tell how they're gonna fly. I recently got the FMS mini mustang P51 and it looks stunning is only tiny, but it flys like a pile of poo!

No, unfortunately I mean complete rubbish. Last time out it tip stalled into the ground. I repaired it, and tried again today and it did the same again. C o G is 5mm ahead of where instructions say.

I found out afterwards, apparently the c o g in the instructions is way out, someone else tried a good 25mm ahead and it flew fine. My model is now wrecked. Grounds for a replacement do you think?

Watch the P+P prices they'll be high

Ive not seen any reveiws on it so id say buyer beware, theres alot of the cheapy electric planes like that on the market and they are not easy to setup to fly well
