The 48" MXS is the best value in RC in fun/$, with the caveat that I haven't flown an Extreme Flight laser, which a lot of people seem to like.

Here is one of my favorite flights I captured on video...I love the way this has graceful yaw maneuverability during elevators (e.g., at 2:40), how easy they are to get into KE spins (without the racing wing tips), the high beta KE ease of entrance and maintenance (3:25) The video, I'm a little heavy handed on the sticks, and wind was gusty at times, but for some reason I just like the video, and smile after watching it about as much as I was smiling after I landed.

It was about 1 year after I flew my first RC airplane ever.

Of course my money is not involved, and ideas are a $0.10 a dozen.

But, my idea is, wouldn't it be cool if you could order a plane custom covered, using software to design your custom scheme, and that scheme would be cut and applied at the factory by the experts? Sure, there'd be a little lead time, but it would be cool.

Call them. Email them. Go to the vendor section of this site and express your concern. Go to their forum and express your concerns directly.

But, for Pete's sake, don't go to a competitors thread and try to induce others to share their bad experiences too.

A lot of vendors are friends with each other. They don't want your drama. They just want to run their business.

And make no mistake, it is their business, not yours. If you don't like how a company does business, don't spend your money with them. If you have ideas how to run a company better, go start a company. If you want to share a bad experience with a company, have at it. There is a vendor section to this website.

I've had bad experiences with companies. Almost always, it turned out to be a misunderstanding. Sometimes it is just a bad company.

Write up your experience, and then be done with it.

Sometimes companies do very well by 98% of their customers, and 2% have a bad experience. Stuff happens. Move on.
