READER REVIEWS
Roger Chamberlain  |  Jan 06, 2010

Strengths:
Looks good from 10ft, good flight performance, eveything in the box. . . .
Weaknesses:
Lack of standard radio gear, not really a beginners model. . . .
Overall:
My review is for the P51, but a friend has the FW190 and they are very similar. I think the performance is quite adequate and scale like with the std motor/battery. Good to keep as a complete package at a parents/holiday/friends house. .

Strengths:
Looks great, goes together easily and is a very complete package. Simple plug and play, and easy to modify to try and get it to be a decent model. . .
Weaknesses:
The batteries are pathetic. Not enough power and way too heavy. That said the weight is needed to get the cofg. .
Overall:
Flies ok, but if you've flown a proper rc model, you'll be a bit dissappointed as it is truely gutless in the nimh guise. That said, there's plenty of options to modify it, starting with adding a lipo battery pack. . .

Dead-stick  |  Mar 03, 2007

Strengths:
1/ Can be bought as a complete package, or as airframe and motor only if you already have some spare gear hanging around! 2/ Fantastic flier. . . .
Weaknesses:
Decals not put in the correct location on mine, but with careful use of a scalpel they can be peeled off and relocated. The tail 'cross' can be cut into four parts and re-assembled into a swastika if desired at the same time!. . .
Overall:
An easy flying replica of the 'Butcher Bird' that can be flown in the area of a football pitch, and that fits into any car (yes, even the tiny Smart Roadster!) in one piece for those impromptu flying sessions. It looks best scything across the field at shoulder height (or lower) and pulling up into a scale like roll. In my opinion there is no need to upgrade the motor as it flies as near to scale speed in standard form and the gearbox noise at ten yards is hardly noticeable. PKZ, can we please have an ME 109?.
