I'll second that. My last 1700 P-51 from them also had V1 retracts and struts, but the plane ia a V2 since it has the added wing spar.

I don't believe BH is shipping any of them with the V2 retracts already installed. That you will have to do yourself.

That's a bit ridiculous. Since if you buy from rc castle,even if you get the outdated retracts/struts, they will send the updated stuff to you. My lone experience with banana leaves me to believe they will not do the same. It's a shame since shipping from rc castle is another $100+ on the already $400 price. I may have to pass altogether on these birds till I can find a different way or justify the costs. If any one other than banana hobbies would distribute the inthe US I would be ok with it.

Are there any pictures available so I can identify V1 or V2 retracts?

The V2 retracts say "PZV2" right on them.

This is exactly what needs to be forwarded to FMS. Their product range will never sell to its full potential in the US as long as banana hobbies is the lone distributor. I don't even understand how these companies don't do a background check on their distributors.

Just wait for banana to run out and restock again, That is what I am going to do. Even if I buy it today, It will most likely stay in the box for a month or so before I actually fly it.

Glad you like it so far...still not done yet. Still a few things missing that I have to do. I also did the glasses the same way on mine.

Saw that. Your pilots awesome also but those lenses really help make it stand out more on both pilots.
