Good news, Aros, will be watching...!

On the shipping, I've wondered why they don't work around making two smaller parcels for these big planes. I see that some have done this. Overall, I'd think it may help shipping issues for the better in virtually all areas.

Hobby King had a similar thing crop up with sending the 1700mm P-40 to the U.S. and I think it put a big damper on their sales of that one.

I just got home from some flying and the mail person shows up with a wonderful gift for me! She's here!!

Okay, before I dig in, what all do you guy's want photos of? All the individual parts? The build process? Let me know if there's anything specific you guy's want to see soon so I can make sure to grab a specific photo of interest.

Electronic quality?
Motor quality and power enough?
Wing/tail strengthening required?
Retract quality?
Size/number of servos?

Ok....everything.

Ok....everything.
Number of plastic parts
Gear door sequencing - like the 1400 or real deal.
Battery compartment
Cockpit details
More, less, accurate panel lines.
Cowling & faux piston details.

Yeah...like he said..everything LOL.

Okay no problem...I'll try to cover everything. Preliminary report: All parts arrived in excellent condition, overall quality is typical of what we've come to expect from FMS...Good, good, good. I have to run to the LHS to have them soder me a Deans on the stock ESC. I'll upgrade the ESC later but for now I plan on running it stock, which is a good idea for a review any ways.

I'll try to have the review tonight if not tomorrow for sure.
