+1

I started out with the 1450mm P51 v4 and i loved it (though it needed a few mods and retract swaps), i learned a lot from it and it taught me how to fly a low wing warbird. However it is now hanging from the garage ceiling as i went to the FF P51 1700mm when it was released and never looked back. Ive now got the P51, P47, & F4U and the really have a presence in the air and ground. I hope they continue making new warbirds, but at the very least continue to supply parts for the current lineup. Thanks for these 1700mm birds FMS

For a pretty picture just might get you something pretty in the mail...
What's the word on diamond hobby discontinuing the white 1700mm corsair? Is this just that vendor, that scheme, or evetually all? Same for the P47.

i ordered a fms 1700mm corsair v2. i got it early september this month. the instructions said there was a quick detach wing connector mounting system but there is nothing like that just a jumble of wires and one big plug in connector with no real markings other than channel numbers next to multiple connectors.



in the middle you can see the junction and all its extensions im supposed to plug everything into from each wing each time it comes apart. this is not in the manual. the manual shows how to use quick connectors

are the qd connectors optional?? im picking up some at motionrc tomorrow.

459$ foam airplane and the connectors not being in the box as advertised is a bit disappointing.

Hi JonCM, It appears this isn't an isolated incident. A chap here in Australia recently purchased the Petie 2nd 1400mm bird and had the exact same issue with missing connectors. The manual was totally different to what he received. He was fortunate that the local hobby store he was dealing with showed some very good customer service and had them shipped in within the week at no charge.

I'm not sure what is happening with FMS, they seem to be dropping the ball a little of late. Don't get me wrong I'm a massive fan of their line up and have a mustang on order. The customer interaction along with product development has certainly dropped off in the last 18 months or so, and this is the second case of parts missing I've come across.

Most businesses are doing it tough globally I guess and FMS would be no different. Maybe they're cutting corners to make ends meet? I could be reading too much in to it also but it does seem strange.

Regards Ben
