If you are asking about the PTS Mustang, I like it very much. I know a couple of guys who have switched from the beginner's 3 blade prop to an aggressive 2 blade APC and it screams! I like the sound of a 3 blade so I put on a somewhat more aggressive 3 blade I had laying around and it flies quite nicely.

I saw one fly when I was down in Savannah, Georgia last year. I think he had a Saito 100 in it. It flew pretty well, even though the pilot wasn't very good. On one take off, he jammed the throttle up and the plane took off 90 degrees from where it started. It then tip stalled about 3 times and the pilot was able to recover with ailerons everytime.

When he landed he jokingly turned to one of his buddies and said, "Did you see that!!" His friend turned to him and said, " Ya, there's a thing called a rudder on that plane, try using it on your take off and don't horse it off the runway!"

Once it got flying "on the wing" it was very stable, nice flyer. Hope this helps.

I really love the spitfire, sexy and strong! the only problem i see with it is the cowling looks to square.

Hangar 9 Spitfire


I've got the H9 Spitfire and I absolutely love it. I fly it with an OS91 4 stroke equipped with a Keleo scale exhaust. Mine came out nose heavy because of the custom exhaust so because I don't like adding dead weight to a plane I moved the servos to the back.

The plane is rock solid in the air. The 91 provides a perfect amount of power. It does all the scale maneuvers beautifully. High speed low passes (less then 2ft off the deck) are rock solid.

With flaps on you can make a realistically steep approach, set it down on the mains and let it roll out.

A good friend got some great shots of the maiden. You can see the whole set here http://www.goosesworld.com/aircraft/...7_1/index.html

But here's a taste

Happy Landings
