FMS says they want to be respected like Horizon is, Right! Well why make Banana your only source! Horizon has hobby shops all over the US selling there products. This makes them more visible in the market place and parts/planes availible in a much broader scope! I can drive within two hours of where I live here in Pa. and visit 4 hobby shops that sell Park Zone/Horizon products. There are no EXCLUSIVE dealers. It is simple- limiting you sales out lets, limits your sales PERIOD! Think about it FMS, putting all your eggs in one basket is not smart I dont care how good the dealer is. I cant drive to banana hobby but I can drive to my local hobby shop and buy a new Park Zone plane today. FMS would sell more planes if they had a dealer net work like Horizon does. Again it is that simple! I'm not one to rant but dumb is dumb!

Looks like this issue has gone viral. Its on just about every thread that has even a mention of the fruit stand.

Guys, this is all a massive overreaction to nothing more than here say. The only people who know the real deal are FMS to be perfectly honest, they don't need to explain their business dealings with a forum.

Remember it was US, the forum users who together with Bernhard worked closely with FMS to make their planes better and better? So now they do not owe us anything ?

Boys and girls, not to distract from the conversation but I just received word that my 1700 Corsair will be shipping to me this Monday. That means these will be in stock and ready to purchase very, very soon.

Thats great, except now a lot of us have nowhere to get one from as we wont deal with Banana Hobby. To me, Its just not worth the risk over here.

Not very very soon, I gather. That means that BH will be getting their prototype...which always means (going by past examples) like 2-3 months after they release their review video, they have them for sale.

If we can't get them from PW-RC or Castle, then we're looking at September-ish.
