Mine was 27 days from order to box on my door step. From China It gets sent to Parkrcmodels first, They look at it to make sure all is well and then send it out to you. It seemed RC Lander and Parkrcmodels shipped VERY fast..the mail system and customs is what seems to take the time.

Hey, Falcon thanks for starting this great thread, My T33 is being shipped the early part of next week and I have ordered with 'tout options' as the price of the extras is most reasonable and will contribute greatly to the overall look and performance of the plane.
Good choice on the gorgeous Stumax unit what size is it?, I have elected for the moment to try the new super high power 90mm unit from rcl on 10 x 5000mah cells which I think will do the job well, I can always change afterwards but I feel the 120 may be too heavy for the airframe and will cancel out most of the performance gain. I await your next instalment and hope it goes well for you.

Well I got a little more done today. First off I am doing a lousy job of a "build thread" as I just seem to be putting the plane together and not really documenting much along the way, sorry about that.

Anyhoo ,progress today I got her sitting on the gear and the wing is joined together and so are all the fuselage sections. I put a few of the decals on and they look great. I ordered a few decals from Callie Graphics I am going to put on the left and right side of the plane.

To this point it took me about one full days work. I am probably about an average builder so judge from there. I have the fan setup to do yet and a few little things but I would say another two full day's and i would have it ready to maiden.
Pretty good on parts fit. I fussed with the wing a little as the wing screws have to line up exactly, but not to bad. The tail section is VERY nice and it's all lined up for you, all you have to do is put it together, and it turned out very solid.

Yeah I have three cats running around, so when I take a pic one of them usualy wants in the shot.

Thanks Nut, I think those RC Lander boys have a winner here. I look forward to flying her.

I decided to fabricate the bird for the bottom. I think I can make it out of blue trim sheet

Glad to hear its all going well, I must say it looks great in the T-Birds scheme and I am really looking forward to getting mine now, I am told it will be on the plane in the next couple of days. As I have not much work at present I will be able to do the build full time and as it has gone well for you I am really looking forward to it. My chosen colour scheme is below as,like you I want get some nice detail on there also the dayglo will help these tired old eyes with orientation. power initially will be the Lander 90mm unit for 10cells and a Turnigy 120HV ESC and 2 x 5cell 5000mah packs rated at 25c hopefully this will give a respectable performance and flight time, time will tell.If anyone out there has a info on the fullsize that I have posted below I am interested to hear from you. Falcon, thanks for the photos etc and I await your next posting, Cheers

On this plane, how easy is it to remove the wing for transportation in the car and storage in the shop?
