This is the first PNP offering from Windrider and it's impressive! The Boeing 777 is a stunning foamy example of the Boeing 777. It comes with Air France marking but you can order several different variants offered by Windrider or contact Callie Graphics for custom marking. I went with the Continental Airlines markings from Windrider. I'm still finishing up the markings and adding flaps for slower landing speed. Check out the link below for more info on the great RC Airliner from Ming Lou of Windrider.

Have you ever been to a local RC club swap meet and found a good deal? Well....this E-Flite RV-9 is one of those great bargains and believe it or not, it was new in the box for $50. I couldn't say no. I've always thought this is was very nice looking model and wondered about it's flying qualities. Assembly took several hours and I went with a E-Flite 480 1020kv motor and 40A esc combo. The verdict....this RV flies as good as it looks. With flaps fully deployed, slow flight is fantastic with great control response. Pull the flaps up, advance the throttle and she really moves out with that 480 set up. If you're looking to get into this hobby with minimal expense, visit a club swap meet, you'll be amazed at the great bargains to be had.
