Simply the best ARF warbird I have ever seen.
whole new level for CMP. Quality is top notch. It goes together quickly,
but keep in mind that this is a somewhat complicated airplane with lots of
features, so you are not going to get it together in two evenings.
The fuse is fiberglass, prepainted. It has a tremendous amount of detail.
The tailwheel is in the scale position, rather than just sitting on the
rudder post, and it has a neat linkage to connect to the rudder.
There are multiple scale details on the fuse, such as seperately molded
fiberglass exhaust stacks, airscoops, belly pan, and a neat belly tank that
uses standoffs for better appearance rather than just being stuck to the

and airbrakes. All servos mount from the bottom with the neat CMP servo

The plane is set up for retracts, and the retract mounts are hardwood and
well-secured. Fixed gear with scale strut covers and gear doors are also
The spinner is amazing, about six inch diameter, of scale profile, made just
for this model.
The canopy frame is prepainted.
The wingtips have places for lights to be inset, and clear plastic covers
The stabs are airfoiled, and the LE of the elevators is inset into the stabs
in a scale manner.
The rudder is built up and fairs neatly into the rudder post.
Soft mounts are included for a glow engine, a neat bonus.
Mine is going to be electric, with a Monster Power 160 motor and two
Maxamps 6s 5000 batteries and a Castle Creations 85 controller.
I am beyond pleased, as a matter of fact, I am floored, by the quality and
low price...flight report ASAP...
