G your kidding me right. They are charging $89 for foam? And they strip it of anything meaningful?
Ya may as well get a new kit keep the parts as spares.
Do you know if they started doing the same with the Euro. That wasn't stripped.

I hope he's kidding and hope BH was wrong. $89 for foam $7 tax and $17 to ship it. Man that's gouging if I've ever seen it. That's the reason I almost didn't order it, because might as well get the kit for that price, like Max said.

I no kidding. This is what I get when I ordered the fuse.The box is the same box like your PnP version. It is a big box, now you know why your shipping cost so much.

Oops, sorry ! its does have the wires in there. Getting old!! Lol....

Thanks for the info Genghiskt. Well at least I get the wires, was gonna be really pissed if I had to rewire everything again. Either way its a spare to a spare fuse so I won't be using it for a while n e how, I hope. Still a lil irritated that no sequencer nose gear door servo is included.

V8,
Nose gear door servo, i think there is. I think so. I just got some spare door hinges.

They give you the wires because some wires have to in before they glue the fuse together.

O yes, the wires that come with fuse are thicker now. FW has made some improvement. Lol...

Actually you can run the wiring through this fuse with little effort.
I pulled out all the Y's for aileron and stabs to single wires.
I even reran all of the radio wire from the aft over the center channel.
That was one thing I was thankful for.

Three. Throttle, left and right taileron.

Anything more is happy days

If you don't use the TV, you can bring it down to 5 (throttle, rudder, elevator, aileron and gear).
Yaw only TV would go up to 6.

My kit came in this morning from Banana Hobby, no damage:


I didn't know they made the standard version:


I'm thinking maybe I should have just got the PNP and kept the old fans/esc's for spares. Would have been a lot less work.
