p3200004.jpgp3200003.jpgRescued this Mustang from being thrown in the bin yesterday. It is 43" span and 37" long. The wings are foam veneered. It was electric prior to a slight accident but I have to remove the engine/tank etc and return it. Anyone have an idea as to which kit and possibly the CoG?   Can't seem to get the photos below the writing!!!

Hi Bob,

Looks like a Cambria Mustang Fun Fighter, original ones were poular with an OS 25FSR for power.

GoG is 70mm rearward from back of the former that the wing mount bolt is attached to, 72mm forward of the face of the former at the wing rear.

Hope this helps.

Definitely not a Cambria or Cambrian model, they both had strip ailerons, not the inset type shown in the photos, plus they both had built up balsa cowl, not the moulded type fitted in the photos.

Thanks Bill and Alan. Searching the net, I'm leaning towards the version of the Cambria Mustang. It has the inset ailerons but the cowlings do seem to be built up with balsa on their models although the fibreglass one on this model could be home made.

Cheers, Bob
