ParkZone P-47D Thunderbolt Plug-N-Play
Sweet plane! A bit heavier that I was expecting, but I did add the retracts and flaps. Just a tad too fast to be my ideal park plane, but I still love fly'n the crap out of it. It has just under a 1:1 thrust ratio so it can't do an unlimited vertical climb. I know guys that supe these planes up with 4 Cells and they haul butt. Landings are a little faster than I hoped. I attached the belly skids so I could do grass landings in case I couldn't get it down on the runway. That was actually my whole reason for installing the retracts, so I could land either way. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars because it's just a little to big to be a good park flyer, and a little to small to be worth driving out to the air field. Update: This plane is now my favorite plane that I own. I still think it's just slightly on the big/fast side for park flying but it is still so much fun to fly! I fly mostly at Marsh Middle school now since this plane is too big for my normal site. I take off from the paths at the school and then belly land it in the grass. 20+ belly landings so far and the belly and wings still look brand new. I have taken in to the air field and have done a few gear landings. Gear landings look smooth and scale.

This is one really great plane. I live in an area with alot of Scale planes and this thing turns heads. It flies like my 90" wingspan warbirds and will do all the same manuvers. It is a great plane to take to the park and practice for scale events. The retracts work great and just add to the fun and worth every penny. No air leaks to deal with. The realism of the wings and fuse is incredible. I haven't set up the flaps yet but am planning to as soon as I can stop flying it long enough. Another Home Run Park Zone.
