I'm in on the scale stuff. In the process of re fitting a new engine in my P-47. I't is in the P-47 thread already on FG along with Sam's Captured scheme.
It'll be great to see FG represent in Scale.

Scale airplanes look cool, just don't ever put one in my hands that is not capable of hovering, KE spin, rolling circles, etc....it will crash due to lack of power to weight ratio and surface throws LOL. I got over flying in circles years ago

The P-51 is my favorite all time plane......The first RC plane I ever had was an EZ model P-51 and the Dago Red. Planes flew great. My all time favorite scheme is the Gunfighter......And now Aeroworks has that on the shelf......

Great to see many on FG in the scale end of the hobby. Will be working on a CARF Corsair with a 250 Moki in a couple of weeks with my flying buddy. Sold his Aeroworks Mustang and has the fever again.
Having Top Gun in our back door gets the juices going for sure.

A guy at out club has a beautiful TF Corsair. He fiberglassed the entire plane, and made ribs and panel lines with built up epoxy. He has a scale looking access panel which has switches, fuel dot, and charge jacks inside. Even the trim tabs are hooked up. They don't move, but they are on their own hydraulic-type pushrods. All of his servos are internally mounted, like the rudder servo is inside the rudder, and the elevator servos are inside the fuse. I am very jealous of his plane, and I have always wanted to get a 50cc Warbird.

Interesting timing on this thread. I've been admiring some of the scale planes, especially the Mustangs, P-whatever's. I tip my hat to the scale builders who spend hundred's of hours adding realism to the spit and polish finishes of monocote (or ultracote, whatever) and fiberglass structures. Unfortunately, many of those same builders look down their noses at the 3-D ARF flyers, and it is a shame for that.

My problem is learning to fly them properly. I find myself trying some extreme aerobatics (correct, they don't like to knife-edge or flat spin very well), and even landing them scale-like is a different technique than I am used to. That said, what I like about the hobby is the diversity of skillsets, so I will have to work on my skills of greasing in these warbirds with full flaps!

I love aerobatics but I never really "got" the challenge of flying scale, until flying a giant scale Cub.

I have found it quite challenging to fly in a scale-like manner with a scale-powered ship (real power to weight ratios). In the end though, I just like to fly! Scale, Acrobatics, Heli or EDF; it is all fun to me
