Eflite A6M5 Zero have issues?

I seen a Eflite Zero plane looked very nice and has a decent price.
But I see its discontinued,Is that because they had problems or they just ran their course and now making a different plane or what ever reason besides problems with the actual plane or components?
I still see parts here and there,,but as far as I know the plane is not made anymore,Just wondering if I should pass on it just because of that reason,or is it just a great flying plane thats not made and no reason not to get it?

Perhaps posting on the Scale/RTF forum will get more replies?

Hi Profit,

I'll summarize the main A6M5 thread: It's an awesome plane. Splendid presence in the air. But before you take off, it needs an evening of tender loving care, it has many small issues that need fixing.

So get one, I love mine and I have many other good planes... And lately the zero is my goto plane just about all the time. It's a small 25" bird that flies like a much larger one... So it's satisfying yet you can enjoy it anywhere, in any park... Not only at the field.
