I don't think he saved $400 though, the Hobbistar 71" ARF is 169, and the SIG LT-40 70" is $210.
Hmm, yes. I was basing on premium balsa 3D ARF plane wingspan/cost
Still, a lot of people will buy $100 cheaper for each part for a savings of a lot, then they will go to what they should have had in the first place in 3 months to a year (or 3)
It's a long and costly road that a lot of people have walked down. Myself included. If I wanted it, nothing you have said today would have steered me from this crummy trainer when I started flying again about 6-7 years ago. I'm pretty stupid TTYTT.
