i went with the super cub ONLY because of the connectors. ive watched videos and read everything i could on both these planes and the gamma is the one i wanted the most. nice slow flyer, relaxing to fly, easy to work on and especially the rtf price and aileron and brushless options. super cub, too big, slightly too fast, doesnt float as nice, dont like that there are mods you absolutely must do etc. etc.
me being new to this i wont learn soddering nor want to. its kind of a shame because i love watching the videos how great a floater this plane is. i just wanted something relaxing after a hard days work. i wonder if there are other new to rc folk out there didnt buy this plane for the same reason
Im going to rock the boat a little. I bought the pro RXR last week. Spent 45 bucks on thier batterys, 15 on props, and 5 on deans. This plane flew only a few minutes esc toasted it self. Both Ares and HobbyTown refused to stand behind it.. I put this plane on the curb this evening with the garbage. I wont spend a dime on hobby town branded products again. And if ANY other store has what I need I will do my best not to shop there any more. If someone hurrys the can did thru my trash for it before morning. The wing isnt there because it didnt make it, but theres a full unharmed fuse there.
