They are here in Reading PA. Iron Horse Hobbies.

..got mine here in Reading PA...maidened and hour ago, and wow, nice performer..unlike the Sukhoi you can take your eyes off this on for a second or two.

The rolls don't seem as snappy as the Sukhoi, but you can fly this baby a lot slower. Ran two batteries through it.

Also put 2 flights on the MIG3 with PZ gear. It flies very much like the P51, only slower.

The Bearcat is still under construction.

This plane rocks. Ive only had 2 30 seconds flights, but they were so fun.

The 2nd flight ended with a gust of win flipping the plane and driving it into the ground. The spinner is out of whack and the tip of the fuselage is a little dented but Ive got it fixed.

good idea, update us on how it goes, try a few diving down full up elevator loops to really put it under pressure and see how it holds? because this is so small it probably holds fine, but for wing repairs i always use a splint in each part of the wing, like a toothpick, just sloteed into each one to give it mechanical strength, a tooth pick weighs a gram maybe? or you can always use carbon fibre to save weight on this thing

and the clear tape over the the whole crack, that should do the trick

Hi all, just got mine awhile ago, I binded it to my DX6i and took it out for a spin. Man this thing is so smooth. Alot easier to fly than the Sukhoi. I was flying in about 3 mph winds and I ran about 5 batteries through it before it got dark. I cann`t wait to see what kind of mods you guys are going to do with it, but out of the box it flys sweet.

Picked mine up at the LHS, they were having a 20% off storewide sale

Pics of Jr and Daddy together, and another of my fleet.

This "hobby" is truly an addiction, I got back into it this spring after an 18 year break.

Foam safe CA should work, IF your FSCA says foam safe check your kicker (aka accelerator) the zap Kicker eats foam. BSI products DONT eat the foam.

This plane flew so good that I was talking on the phone while I was flying it, try that with the Sukhoi . Just alot more relaxing of a flight. It did seem to want to pull to the left on take off.
