flightLINE: A treat for your ears! 26 pounds of airplane are nothing as Jose Travieso's Turbomin-powered F-15 Eagle takes to the sky where (because of the turbine-engine) it not only looks but also sounds like the real thing! Then, if synchronized twin engines give you goosebumps, you'll love Mark Smith's prototype of the DynaflightP82-Twin Mustang. His stand-off scale replica is fast yet agile and slows to a walk on landing.
preVIEW: Pleased to discover The World Models created a P-82 Twin Mustang, we are greatly impressed to see the ARF replica includes pre-install retracts and also features genuine split-flaps! What's more, unlike the now out of production Dynaflight kit, this one's wing separates into three pieces outboard of the fuselages making it easy to transport! Also, details abound, like the molded in exhaust stacks on the lightweight pre-painted fiberglass cowls! How nice an airplane is it? Scale building master Larry Stenhouse had to have one - and he's not the type to fly just anything!
