🙁 Ahhhhh the P-47 is ...well gone....lost here Sat afternoon late.....took off and the plane pulled left took alot more correction than normal to get her back right....got her to altitude and reduced power and she got wierd.....and I lost her...reduced power to idle before impact but she is gone.....found on the wing that wasn't tore up a stripped flap servo and a jammed aileron servo.....the flap servo would have allowed alot of wing area to float around even above full up.....or an aileron servo could have come unplugged....I doubt the aileron servo jammed caused the crash but was caused by the impact....
Oh well got my money's worth out of that airframe she was about 6 years old
You fly you crash......Smitty

Would like to see you get another War bird Smitty. I might know where there is another giant Jug coming on the market with the retracts, for around 500 bucks. I know you like P-47's
