Very nice kit. Arrived nicely package and only one cosmetic problem which was a small dent in side of fuselage (half the size of a dime). The biggest problem is the instructions (or lack of). There is one sheet with pictures of how to construct. It was not very detailed at all. If I wasn't an experienced modeler, i would not have known what to do on a couple of parts (Wing hold down straps and how to install tail wheel servo). All parts were in excellent shape. Only construction problem was that the wing panels had a very hard time being slid down the CF rod and had to be very slow and careful not to damage the wing. Finally got it done and then screwed down the hold down brackets.
I used G&C 500kv motor and Hobbywing 60 amp switched ESC with 3A BEC. I used all metal gear servos from HobbyKing.
I used Spektrum AR600 receiver with my DX6i radio.
The clevises and control rods in this kit are same as other FMS products...flimsy and thin. I have FMS Mustang and I fly it with those flimsy control rods and they work okay but I recommend at least putting rubber tubing over clevis to keep it closed.
I used 4S-30-3300 Turnigy LiPo and had to open up the battery compartment to accommodate it.
It balances great at 85-90mm from the leading edge of the wing, inverted.
I maidened it last weekend in 15 mph winds and it flew great. It had GOBS of power and was decently fast. It is no speed demon by any means but it is not super slow either. Nice scale speed. The bombs and fuel tank are nice touches too. I decided to make fuel tank removable with magnets like the bombs are.
Great looking, great flying plane!
Toysonics delivered it in three days from California to Texas, nice job guys!
