Here's my Top Flite 1/5 scale P-51D ARF converted to a P-51C. DLE 55 RA, Down and Locked (Robarts modified) electric retracts, Mezlik 21 x 10 carbon fiber prop, Best Pilots "Bob Sweeney" pilot. Weighs 22 lbs. 78 flights to date.

Video is flying at "Warbirds Over the Corn" at Mattoon, IL last June. Enlarge picture and increase quality (at Youtube) for best viewing.

Yes Chris. I think it will be the 2nd Sunday in June if there are no conflicts with other flyins. We will advertise it on the different forums.

We had a nice turnout last June for the 1st event. There's a thread on it on another forum.

A perfect flying day Sunday in Mattoon, IL brought out the P-51's. All four are Top Flite 1/5 scale. HL-C "Small Boy Here" by Scott Pieper; QP-S "Dody" P-51C by Ralph White; TJ-W by Steve Epperson; LG-W by Bill Snowden. After the photo session Scott, Ralph and Steve did a little tail chasing. Bill waited and flew a solo mission since it was only the 2nd flight on his bird.
