Hi, Iím looking at getting a semi scale ARF to get another plane flying while I take my time building a GP 40 Mustang. What do you guys think about the GP PT19 for a newer pilot?

Wow. That is a beauty.

What do you mean by "Newer" Pilot? Do you have your wings? Can you fly a trainer reasonably well? If so, then Why the heck not???

Re: GP PT19 ARF

Hey Max, ya I got my wings years ago but never progressed past a trainer. Then took about 15 years off. I built another Eagle 2 to fly last year and this year. Iíve also got a GP electric Stik to fly this summer, but am really into more scale planes. I think Iíll give the PT19 a go!

Re: GP PT19 ARF

Sure! Just make sure your brush up on all your skills with the trainer first. Fly the crap out of it, then up the control rates and deflection and then throw it around the sky some more. Really wring it out. You would be surprised at how much aerobatics a trainer with high control deflection can do When you get bored with it, then you are ready for the PT-19

PS- what are you putting in it? Glow or Electric?

Re: GP PT19 ARF

I will keep flying my trainer and practicing new skills with it like you suggest. Lots to learn and improve on! I think I’ll go with an OS 46sf that I already have. Just trying to save some money like everyone. Although I’m also quite impressed with how great electric setups are now. When I first got into the hobby electrics were almost unheard of. Thanks Max for always responding to my questions! Great community we have here online

Re: GP PT19 ARF

Good luck!

And be sure to come back to this thread and update us on the PT. Pictures and updates on the build and first flights would be great.
