Toysonics! Customer Service A+++!

Well...Toysonics came through as promised. I received both 50mm A-4 & T-33 with FedEx Next Day shipping at no additional charge. That is a first for me from any company. Very cool! Both the T-33 & A-4 arrived the next day and in great shape. Toysonics has been kind of under the radar for sometime and I hope that more pilots take advantage of their outstanding customer service. A+++++

Here's a few pics taken this morning. Hoping to fly them once the rain stops here in SoCal.

Best,
Tony

So far I've only flown the F-16 and T-33, and the F-16 is easier to me. It's also the fastest one of the bunch.

Following the leader, I ordered the T-33 from Toysonics yesterday. It shipped the same day and should be here the 23rd. I plan on flying it with the stock setup and see how she goes. Judging from the photos posted in this thread its quite a large compared to the other planes in this series. I plan on mountinga a hook on the bottom and using my evader bungee launcher, using this takes all of the heartbreak out of the first launch. Has enyone tried the hyperflow fan unit yet!

I think the T-33 has the longest wingspan, but it's shorter than the L-39. I wouldn't worry about a bungee, even on the stock power system it hand launches fine with a firm underhanded toss.

Damn I gotta get me one of those Scooters and fit the avionics hump and some nice Israeli camo, oh and more power

I use a 1550 mah 3s in my HK A4 which I think is the same size. There is a little bit more room so you may be able to fit an 1800 in there with a little cutting.

Make sure your ailerons don't have to much throw, it rolls like crazy and to much throw will make turning difficult. Lots of elevator through though.

Good luck!
