GWS works good; any of the WW11 series seem OK. I have an (unflown) P51, and it went together well, weight was good, but I understand that the stock power is marginal. Some mods are suggested (look on the GWS site on E-Zone and search) such as motor updates, and most important, washout mods. My chum has a Spitfire that flies fine, just don't expect it to rip up the sky. Another buddy has a Beaver (no ailerons) and it makes great entry-level electric, with the advantage of using the power system in built-up replacements. Plans for these are everywhere(!).

(This is starting to sound like a GWS ad, ain't it? Fact is, GWS is taking over where Goldberg and Sigafoose and Walker left off, except now it has to do with electrics of entry level capability. I was there for the previous leaders in the hobby, and I am now learning new stuff through GWS products. And no, I do NOT work for GWS, or anyone else for that matter; I'm retired and on the Government payroll! )
