Ha ha .... wish you were closer. We could always use another willing hand with our little projects.

No radio included with the samples I recvd. Servos and power system were installed and all that I had to do was install a receiver and glue the airframe together.

Has anybody found the link for All spare parts are available for the RareBear on Banana Hobbies web site? That seems to be where they sell the kit sans the electronic equipment. Don't want the Tx... Probably so new they haven't got it there yet... Gary

I like the looks of this little 109 model. I think that the bigger stabs actually improve on the appearance of the real plane, which I always thought was funny-looking, with seemingly disproportionate small stabs. I like the orange color too. Easier to see than dull beige...so I wouldn't have to throw on tape stripes to help see it (like I had to do on that blasted dark-all-over Blue-Angels paint-job on the little J-Power F/A-18).

The T-28 is really cute too. The only one of these models I really don't like the look of is the T-6. That painted-on canopy looks like a rotten pineapple or something. Hopefully if they do a Zero, it will have a clear canopy...because it would have that same issue.

Awww heck - the Rare Bear just jumped into the cart and yanked on the PP account. Dog-gone-it! I would have been happy with the ME109 after seeing BAJORA's video, maybe I will have enough lunch money saved up again when the 109 is available

The P-51 or the Rare Bear or the ME109 - they all look like a bunch of fun!

I got a chance to fly the 109 over the weekend, and I must say I was impressed. If the other planes in the series fly anything like this one, I don't think they will stay on the shelves of the local hobby shop for too long. The fun factor and performance the ME109 had for its price point was quite good. It seems when I fly any of the J-Power minis, I always walk away from them thinking to myself how I should go home and order one for myself. I've managed to resist up until this point, but I don't know how much longer I'll be able to hold out LOL

Maybe I read over it, but are these new planes 4ch or 3ch? In the pics of the Texan, I only see one servo towards the back.

Real warbirds have rudder. Is it prepared/possible for a rudder mod.?
(space for servo & rods etc.)

LOL! Guilty! That's too bad, I'm sure it's an easy mod. Just shows Banana Hobbies is false advertising... No surprise there.

Well, to their defense, I have two different airframes than the 3 that they have listed on their web site. Both of mine are 3 channel.

Sorry Ed! Just trying to make the video believable, even though Pete and I live about 400 miles apart.
