first off, let me say that this is a really nice model for the money. nice scale and decent fit and finish. Now for the bad. The left wing strut was dislodged and smashed upwards into the fuselage. a very easy repair, which I’ve already done. second and this one pisses me off! the engine cowling doesn’t begin to fit correctly. There is a 2 to 3 mm gap on the port side between the cowl and the main airframe. While investigating, I found a perfect thumb size dent at the. front of the cowl. while not immediately noticeable, it was a pretty good size dent. Before I saw the dent, I noticed that the decals were really wrinkled up at that spot. It was obvious that whomever was assembling this aircraft wasn’t able to get the cowling all the way on and used excessive force, hence putting that nice dent in the port side of the engine cowl. They should have (at that point) grabbed a new cowl and been done with it. This is what pisses me off! This “jag off” packaged and this aircraft out “ deliberately” knowing that it was damaged. Not cool, not cool, not cool!. I realize that Banggood is a distributor and not the manufacture of this product, but I wish there was a way that they could get these companies to do better quality control before these items are shipped out to the buyer. I heated up the foam and got it to decompress a bit, as well as straightening out the decal. the gap however, I will have to live with as the foam was incorrectly cut to begin with. too much material was remove on the back side leaving that ugly gap! maybe Banggood would be a pal and send me out a new on one? that would be awesome! M.S.

Q: does this have retractable rear landing gear

perguntado por highwayman sobre 2019-11-17 07:52:42

Chordmerchant no retractable tail gear on the version 2 model. you can find the motor and controller, plus servo and linkage to have a retractable rear gear. But honestly, it's really not worth the hassle to do it. allot of extra wiring and the control box make it a bit of a mess. I did it and it looks great, very scale operation but I would not do it again.

Chordmerchant Geridone: actually, no. This was my first thought as well. I can't remove anymore materiel from the back of the engine cowl without having to hog out a bunch of material on the inside in front of the motor. besides, like I mentioned, this plane should never have shipped with this shoddily cut/fit cowling. it's a great flier and I can live with the gap. I may even buy another one with this new price I'm seeing here!

Joss I think you'll need to make up a drawbar from all thread. I'm all metric so I'm not familiar with imperial.

TomOnofre The TH9x, I think it's a multiprotocol transmitter, so it can bind in the internal receivers that are already embedded in RC toys,

Q: 3000MW = 3TW?

Chordmerchant This amp is ridiculously overpriced. You can buy vintage hi-fi power amps for this kind of money.
