It looks like a nice plane. I would get it, but it is an RTF. HL needs to make an ARF version

I believe there is a review that is going to be done on it.

Oh yes, there will be

I actually saw the 'TB-20', the 'Mirage 2000' and the 'Busy Bee' RTF's at my LHS last weekend and they all are impressive! And the receiver can be removed if you choose to use your own radio

Yes. It was VERY well packaged; but, not too well assembled. Have not flown it yet due to weather. The TB-20 appeared to be very tail heavy. - Had to add weights on cowl. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

I have one...not to bad!! Two problems I have had with mine: 1) The prop spinner doesn't fit...not even close...there are extra pieces that I can't for the life of me locate were they are supposed to go! 2) The battery does not fit in the battery bay very easy. The plane flies well...looks nice in the air too! Flight times are 10+ mins. landings are fast...but easy! This plane is not for the novice!!

bighead93,

Where did you balance yours? I can't find my manual Did you balance it inverted? I know what you mean about those two plastic pieces, I'll call Hobby Lobby tomorrow and let you know what they tell me

Hobby Lobby loves to give extra pieces. I had extra with my Phoenix. They gave me a plastic rear wheel when there is a real wheel in the kit. Not to mention 4 extra plastic clevises.

I had mine for a few while now and I flown it 4 times. Two things I have noticed, the rudder and nose gear were not lined up and the rudder did not more the same distance on both sides. (right and left rudder) I fixed that problem. The other problem is that I need alot of up elevator to maintain level flight at reduced power. Someone above said it may be nose heavy, could that be the reason for needing up elevator?
