Hey guys, Rather than continuing to clog up Red Raider's build thread talking about the different Mustang plans sets I thought I'd post a new thread to gather up and discuss what the options are.

Durafly D.H.100 Vampire from HobbyKing. Has sold really well since it first came out. Second improved version now available. If it flies like this on a rough day, roll on Summer for more fun with it.

Picked up a new ride from a friend of mine for the 2018 season. A nice Carden Pro 124. He was running a 200, but I pulled my DA 170, pipes and all the gear outta my old Raven (which has a new owner) for this Carden.
