Summer flying for me is 5:30am until 9:00am or until I quit breathing from the heat.

HELP Nitro Planes Edge 540T90 (France)

My problem is, I have recently acquired a crashed Nitro Planes Edge 540T90 with the (France) designation. I assume that just means the covering color. Nitro Planes shows this version out of stock. I assume it is either going to be discontinued or stocked later. Nitro Planes also has another Edge 540T90version with the (USA) designation.

Can you tell me where I can get a build manual, complete parts list, and complete part price list for the Edge 540T90 (France) version?

Are the (USA) version and the (France) version the same plane, but with different color schemes?

Will parts for the (USA) version interchange with the (France) version?

Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated.

I'd have to say move on to.... many other choices. There is little I'd buy here now. Only little things you consider expendable. If you buy an airplane, take what you get, expect to be on youíre own. Even Sam had little authority (none whatsoever) to actually help. He's just a paid "fire fighter" so they donít look like..... on the forums.

It kills me I was looking at the b-25 but was waiting to see how long it would take to reply to dxstickman on his parts request. No replies anymore,dont hide behind the rc show I'm sure you can use a laptop to check on things. I guess you just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Well, I have been trying to call and get on live chat for the past 3 hours with no success. This was my last purchase with NP. I am not happy with how this is taking so long. I would have blown a fuse long ago if I flew year round. Its been 49 days sense I sent the ESC and Motor in. Going with what I had planed from the start and put a good motor and ESC in it. I have had faster turn around sending stuff back to China.

Still haven't heard a word. There are no spare part listed on their web site either. I ended up fixing the broken hinges with a Du-Bro hinges. I must say the plane flies like a dream and has plenty of power with the 3S battery.

I have had the same problem with Banana Hobby...no support and no parts...at least for my F-5E Tiger Shark. I think from now on I am just going to buy from E-Flite, Horizon Hobby, etc. I had a Spektrum receiver start acting up..called Horizon Hobby and had a new one in 4 days and "No Charge". Good service keeps a company in business, poor service does the opposite...and on Internet bad reviews spread like wildfire.
