They are definitely at HobbyKing, I'm not sure Nitroplanes carries them anymore. They are also at Banana Hobby and Toysonics. Look for mini EDF or 50mm - only Toysonics has them listed under the Sky Angel brand.

I was skeptical in buying from BH after hearing several bad reports but when I bought the T-45 Red Arrows, it arrived in 3 days , perfect condition. They even included a 850 mah 3s. If you do get the T-45 , remount the servo horns and rods to the top deck. Easy to do. I did this after stripping one of the 8g servos and now I don't worry about belly landings. The only other thing that happened to mine was one of the ailerons started detaching.. A small bead of "Welders glue" and back in business.

Next up for me is the F-16. These are great little parkjets. I have heard some not so good reports on the Gripen but that's about it.

With shops like Banana Hobby and Hobby King its best to just use paypal. If you do then they have to fill the order or you get your money back no questions.... I think that is where most of the problems are with these sites. I just happened to a friend last week with hobby king. He didn't use paypal and the order is all messed up. I used paypal to order the exact same thing and I had it in 4 days.... Paypal can keep you from dealing with all these headaches! I have had zero unresolved issues with either sight too.....

Yep.... they did a decent job. Only part that is off is the placement of the "blue Angels" script on the inlet. It should be aft about 1". Beyond that, pretty nice. I'm glad it' happens to be #3, that fills out the my whole fleet of 7.

It is not a natural slow-flyer, not at all.

Joe,

Out of the 7, which one is your favorite ? I just got started with the Red Arrows T-45 and like it. My flying buds keep telling me that the F-16 is the fastest of the bunch.

The red paint on the Red Arrows BAe Hawk (T-45) adds a considerable amount of weight. The white T-45 is lighter, which certainly helps in the thrust-to-weight dept.

I've always gotten a response/acknowledgement from Toysonics within 1-2 days, except during announced holidays (Lunar New Year, for example). In some cases, telephone calls.

They seem pretty good but their prices are not quite as good as BH. Looked at their site and virtually everything was out of stock. I got lucky on the T-45. Arrived in 3 days. On something like the Skyangel series, there's really not much after sales support needed IMO. BTW, lived in Frederick, circa 1998-2001- Whittier. Worked for Crisplant for 10 years.

Cheers,

Hawk
