If you are a fan of our swappable series this idea should be extremely familiar to you, except Flyzone decided to up the ante a bit.
Flyzone's AirCore series features magnetic linkages at the ends of the push-rods that connect to the core.
Depending on which body you are flying, the power core will connect the appropriate channels to the appropriate control surfaces with no fuss.
Another exremely awesome feature is the break away prop. You'll have to swap the prop depending on which body you choose and it simply snaps right onto the core. But the best part is it also will break away if you have a not so perfect landing, preventing any unnecessary damage.
The P-51 "Miss America" also feature removable landing gear if you would rather hand launch.
We were extremely impressed with the P-51. It's fast, the aerobatics are super clean, and she responds like a dream.
Unfortunately, we wish we could say the same for the Flyzone Principle. This is marketed as a trainer but might end up making a newbie more frustrated than confident. It was extremely tail heavy and suffered from thrust line issues.
To compensate for the weight we cut a notch into the nose of the plane...
...and added a quarter into the "mouth". Go ahead and add $0.25 to the price tag.
IF you can find the perfect spot on the throttle and balance out the weight, the plane does fly well. But as a trainer, sadly, you might want to try something else.
Overall rating for the Principle = a "meh" and a scrunch face.
Overall rating for the P-51 "Miss America" = an AWESOME and a look of contemplation. Josh Scott's experience with the P-51 was excelent which might rank it as a better trainer than the Principle.
Thank you guys for watching and also for you generous support. We couldn't do this without you! You're the best!
