All of the Hobby King stuff I have interviewed would be fine for a $100 ARF but I fly 80's classic pattern simliar to your King Cobra, so a year long build with perfect paint deserves a little reliability.
I have heard some rumors that Down and Locked will be building for Robart as well as deals with Spring Air. Bob Violett signed on this year so knowing Bob their stuff has to cut the mustard.
All the best,
Thanks for the info. I will check into those also. I agree reliability is very important and the last thing I want is a series of belly landings that eventually destroy the plane. I really like the electric retracts but air may be best for this build.
