The model comes double boxed and in a foam container with pockets for parts, no damage what so ever HK to Aus, some nice upgrades with a removable hatch to get to the EDF units, the pylons are plastic and extend into the inside of the narcells and fan out to form a top canopy--nice and strong, the speed controllers go into pocket's in the belly of the wings so they will have plenty of airflow

The wings look to have two carbon rods inside, one full length at the forward edge and another farther back in the middle, they joint together with 2 short rods, the struts are all alloy with suspension very nice, it all pushed/fitted together well, the detail is very good, wings are painted light grey with a darker gray for corogard and the leading edges are silver, nercelles also have a silver leading edge and on the rear, on a side note the wings are thick enough to add retracts to though pads would have to be added for a base

Only minor thing the top hatch sits a little high at one end ( I know I am picky) but can be easy trimmed to lower it flush, the instruction sheet has full instruction's and lots of pictures, it's very well done

Mr Ming IT IS A WONDERFUL MODEL

Mike!

Are the main wings thick enough to install servoless retract?

Thanks for the unboxing and pics! Very helpful!

Hi Joe

Yes thick enough though foam mounting pad's would have to be added to make the struts sit 90* to the ground, I have done this mod recently to my A320 it's not hard, it's on my to do list also full lighting and larger wheels for grass, I have just put my order in with Callie for decals, I can't wait to get it all together

Kind remain the CG should be 5mm after the wing middle panel line.

Hi!
There have to be a German or Swiss distributor! It would be much easier for me to buy one. In the vids above it looks really fast. How does it react in slow flight?

Cheers Konrad

Wing Jockey. Just order direct from Ming. Shipping is very reasonable. I have ordered several planes from him. Ming's service is top notch.
I just got my 777 delivered today. Took just over a week to get here. Thanks Ming. Now just need to find time to put it together. Still working on my number 3 737!

There's one problem which can't be solved: my age .In 4 long months I will turn 18. I can't do nothing at the moment. It's just to annoying for me. I don't like to let my parents sign every small thing.
I will order then.
Few reasons to wait:
Here in Switzerland the winter's on the way. Heavy rainfalls and gusty winds, no flying possible the next months!
When I turn 18, one of the first things i will do is to get Paypal and a creditcard.

Back to topic : do you produce the T7 as long as the 737? I hope you don't do a limited edition as it was announced with the concorde!
When not I will order one in spring!

Just started to work on mine today. Some sanding & painting. Going to try for a FedEX look. Everything seems to fit good so shouldn't be too hard to put together. Will post pics shortly
Rob. Is that a 1600mm Skyraider in the background?

no, actually it's the 1100mm durafly skyraider from hobbyking. it's loaded with rotating retracts, lights, and flaps. flys like a dream and is a favorite in the fleet! good luck on the fedex livery. i went for the air france to get a scale look with out painting. hope you post pictures!

I have the 1600mm Raider. Retracts failed after the second flight. Got a new set from PWC-RC. They work better except that one side has a tendency to rotate 90 degrees as soon as I touch down. Tightened the set screw but did it again on the next landing too. I'll figure it out later. Mine flies good too. Never tried the air brakes yet though. Too chicken!
Ran into one snag on the 777 today. When I plugged in the servo on the right elevator the servo arm is not centered. Tried to pull the servo out but it's glued in good. Don't think I can pull it out without breaking something. Thinking of cutting a little away so I can get to the screw and move the arm over a notch. Then some minor body work.
