looks like it's made by Nine Eagles (http://www.nineeagle.com/en/p.asp?pid=43)

Sadly neither HK or the manufacturer list spare parts. Would be quite interested in specs and pricing for the radio gear.

edit: sells for half the listed price once you've logged in

Got it yesterday...At the same time I also got called back to work after 6 months idle...



As you can see it uses a schnazzy European recharger cord, but it so happens it seems to charge off my 7.4 volt Mini Super Cub charger...So good luck for you guys without a North American charger.. Also you can see that the packaging tape they used removed the paint off of the cockpit front but really no biggy...As for flight, this rock is HEAVY and will take me some practice to learn to slow it the heck down. My 1st flights were cool looking but harrowing it is so fast. I tried a few quick landings but smashed it hard into the street. Not easy to tell if it was hurt, but the prop bounced off as designed. Now there seems to be vibration in there somewhere but the prop shaft is not bent. I'll have to take a look at it after work in the Hotel to trouble shoot it. It may just be the "adjustment" I made to the spinner...but it still flies. The body is imperviously bullet-proof, the wing SEEMS floppy but I think it is near indestructible too. One problem I noticed attaching the wing. It is fastened to the top of the fuselage by lugs going under a lip in the cabin front and by a screw that goes through the top of the wing at the rear/ trailing edge and I tightened it more than I wanted but the wing still is a bit loose. I may have to add an insert to tighten it up.
As for flight lessons, I plan on taking off the cool landing gear and belly-flopping on grass. For noobs, skip it and put the cash toward a Champ. I don't think I got even 4 minutes of flight hitting LVC after 4-5 hops, but hopefully the battery will get "legs" if I don't hit LVC again...
Did I say this plane GOES FAST!?!?
Wow! It took a week is all to get it!!

Consider yourself lucky! i made an order over 2 weeks ago and its still processing. HK is having a hell of a time filling orders in time due to a number of problems, the plane includes a lipo batt right? if so your very lucky you got it so fast.

I almost ordered one... ive been waiting for another cessna to become available since the PZ one went out of production.

But dont think ill be ordering anything else from HK untill they get their together.

Some peole have waited over 1 month to get their product, and they as me paid for express shipping.

About the "European" plug, just get a travel adapter, bet you can pick one up at most of the bigger shops, like Walmarts or Radioshack.

The Plug is British, The rest of Europe dont use them.

The plug is clearly marked 100-240V- 50/60Hz, so it can be used all over the world, if you get an adaptor.
