ROC will have a different product line than FMS.

The big advantage of ROC is that it will benefit from the hard-learned lessons of FMS, so it will not suffer the same growing pains.

MotionRC is the exclusive ROC Hobby U.S. distributor. FMS have learned from the BH deal, and hopefully, FMS has set conditions for MotionRC to provide better service.

As well, ROC has been granted rights to distribute some specific FMS models. There will be no conflict between Motion and BH.

The above comments are based on direct comms with the FMS factory.

In addition, FMS is not connected in any way with Nitroplanes, so the new Nitroplanes warbirds, i.e. 800mm T28/P51/Skyraider and 1450mmT28, are not FMS-made.
Also those planes being made from FMS are the same as the Durafly planes just there making different ones.

On the wifey subject I keep her in the dark likes its one big constant shell game .
Just sold my new Hanger 9 corsair , full scratch built interior, new os 91 , tons of detail , so I could fun the new corsair .
Then I make the purchase very very early in the morning , then I delete the paypal confirmation email , then I go to church for my deceptive behavior, then I get caught by her around 8:30 am when she checks deleted emails ,and we go shopping for her and the cycle starts all over
I think you and I are closely related

I received this email last night from the email question I sent last week .
In there defence I think some of the customer servace people probably dont know there is two versions or they received new parts and fixed version one ????? I am just thinking this because the guys that ordered from BH seem to be getting the correct version.
So the descrition in the eyes of customer servace probably does not say anything about version two and they are making assumptions .
However I was very clear in why I asked , what the differance are and the fixes that are needed .

Same problem Same with the P51, they have no idea what version is what. Its almost like you cant trust what they say and basically have to chance it yourself.

My blue bird arrived last friday and I received this email last friday. It took a week to get this answer. I did take there name out.


Thank you for your interest in Banana Hobby.

Unfortunately we were not updated by the manufacturer regarding that information so we are unsure if that was actually changed. We are very sorry about the inconvenience and hope for your understanding.


Thank you,

Battery question

I bought 6 cell 4500's for this bird and 2 cells will not charge above 4.10v. Dumb question I know but that means bad battery right?

what is the voltage of the other cells? Are you regular charging or balance charging?

Could also be your charger not supplying enough Watt to charge a 6cell properly. Happend to me with a cheap HK charger.

No matter how cheap the charger it does not matter on current supply, you could set it to 0.1 amp and it would charge, just take forever. Its the calibration of the charger to sense the voltage level.

Did/can you calibrate the charger?

Is this for two battery packs or one - "..6 cell 4500's" is plural to me. Highly questionable if two are doing the same thing.

This is a new zippy 4500 45c form HK, one pack of 6 cells
The other 4 cells are at 4.20v
I am using a Bantam e-station BC8DP ac/dc high power
Charging in the ballance mode @ 2.5mah
If there is a way to calibrate the unit I do not know how to do it.
