It's a no brainer especially since I'm only going to be spending around $300 compared to $400 for the Habu.

Edit:

One question though, I don't know much about pneumatic retracts. Do you need to refill them after a certain amount of time?

Also how come it is exactly the same as the Banana Hobby F-86?

It is the same and you can get it for $219.00 receiver ready

Hmm, that kinda sucks. I would much rather have electric.

I get quite a few more cycles than that when I pressurize the tank to around 100 PSI. If you are only getting that many cycle, you may have a leak?

Not weird at all, Venom is the sole distributor of this plane and any shop can buy it through us.

I'll also point out: BH is shaving $30 off for a "pre-order", where as Venom has them in stock now. For your consideration: BH says they will be stocked "late august", and it's the 30th.....

BH also quoted me $35 to ship UPS ground, where as Venom quoted $23 FedEx 2nd day, or $10 FedEx Ground.

The totals:
BH: $256/$286 (with/with out pre-order bonus) shipped UPS ground, and you have to wait till they stock them
Venom: $279 shipped FedEx ground. Add $13 to get it in time to be flying this weekend (at least if your on the east coast)

EJF also has them .Robert has great customer service and so does Venom .like i've been saying this is going to be a popular kit as this thing flies sweet and has room to grow .plus the flaps speed brakes and retracts makes for a full house plane.and there is not much to putting it together all the hard stuff is done.

I am not a good judge of speed. But I am guessing in the neighborhood of 60ish+ in stock form. Again, totally a guess. How fast do you want it to be??? There are several videos out there on this bird. Check them out, see if you can find anyone that can doppler them for you.

Nice vid. Too bad there isn't a way to filter out the music on cool sounding jet vids.
