Easy wing tab fix and will be stronger with epoxy and a dowel inserted into foam. I am thinking of inserting a wood dowel in mine and it is ok.

Yaright you would! The B-25 doesn't look that bad, a good run of 15 min epoxy and it'll be good as new(well, a little war weary ). That's definitely v2 all the way. The spinner is the new one, and the dihedral looks right. I'd just fix the tabs(epoxy+toothpics) and put er' together

v8, the airfield B-25 was flying great, I fly at a park that has 3 tall light poles spaced equally apart in the middle of the field and I just was not paying attention. I missed the pole but hit the ground.

Thanks guys for the confirmation on the upgraded hub and wing. You all are right the tabs will be an easy fix.

Man this is a BIG AIRPLANE!

I just bought the white one from RC Castle and an extra set of retracts . I think all the clues on this plane ie "extra wing screws" " broken wing incertion tabs ect" would simply mean FMS probably sent upgraded wings and hub to the distributors to repack version one into two .
In the process one can assume they did not take care in the packing and we are all going to see some wing incertion damage incertion problems.
BH raised the price to $449 , so RC castle looks real considering he confirmed V2 before I ordered . I could not get any responce from BH .
Now onto batterys , what to buy ??? any suggestions ?

I'm running a Turnigy Nano Tech 5000 and it balances the plane pretty much perfectly. I run 6 minutes and come back with over 3.8v per cell.

Yeah Lou, it looks like BH will never change. On the feature pg. it's listed at $419.90, but when you click it to buy it jumps to $449.90? Raymond is now beating Petie by $51.00 at $398.89.

How much was your shipping from Raymond?

Hi Gary it was $111 to Pa , I agree with you so I spend about $50 more but know its version 2 .
I am glad everyone so far received 2 but the fact that they won't answer sealed the deal plus the new price steered me to Raymond !
Mitche thanks for the battery advice

You would think that BH knows the only thing they have/had going for them is price

Don't forget guys, SN hobbies has this bird in stock now. It might be cheaper in shipping. I've had positive dealings with them on previous buys and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

The reason they up the price is because they lowered the shipping to Free over $50 , Last week the plane prices were lower because the Free shipping was for $100 and over.
