ON THE COVER 

E-flite's new 1.2m (47”) span P-47D might be a park flyer in some eyes (although we'd dispute that) but there's no doubting the amount of care that's gone into a model that looks absolutely gorgeous both on the ground and in the air. Just glance at the cover shot and you'd asume it's a far larger model. We've been flying it this month and tell you what we think starting on page 32
