Has anyone had any dealing with these people..Their prices seem to be out of this world too.

tongkunrctoy.com They respond to emails fast but their English is not good as they don't seem to understand fully what you are saying.

Okey i maidenedmy f-86 today. Useing a gens ace 6s 4500 and putting it half way over the ESC position it gave me a CG at around 190mm. I used quite some alu tape other than that it is all stock.
Maiden was rather univentfull, except for the landing which was a bit bumpy and the right main gear came loose. Other than that no harm was done. Its lacking some power and feels like a truck compare to my freewing f-22 or stinger 64. it looks really nice in the air but other than that its rather boring...hmmm just a little bit disappoined. Now i got that JF 80mm lying around but will probably use it for the f5 i want to purchase.

Yea well but i only got the 6s 2100kv version that gives around 2.9kg of thrust on test stand. It will probably give in between 2-2.2kg of thrust in frame which is a lot better than 1.6 (@72 amps) I get now, but still its gonna stay a truck, a faster one but still a truck

I'm pretty sure you don't have to do any balancing....Jetfan & Wemo rotors are dynamically balanced at the factory so that shouldn't be a problem.....Correct me guys that have these powerplants if I'm wrong...

Yes ...I did a major mod regarding front & main retracts...I changed the mounts & retracts to the normal ones like used on the Eurofighter & Su-35...much stronger & no more broken retract casing....I can't remember the thread no. but I have pics of the mod earlier in the forum....you may have to go back quite a few threads to find it....#658...
