I like my HK version, but one con is the lack of parts.

they do not center. When you turn left with ailerons for example, then bring sticks back to neutral, flight surfaces do not full center

I agree the parts are lacking. I'm into making molds of the foam models that fly well. That way I know it flies and with molds I can make my own spare whenever I want them. Just finishing up a composite conversion of my T-28. Next model is a six foot EuroFighter then I'll do the Sbach conversion. All finished in epoxy glass with scale details. The Sbach is a very easy model to do due to its flowing lines and very little panel detail required.

Go here to see the difference.

Sorry no.... I need the Typhoon for scale flying contest for the 2013 season assuming the Mayans do not kill us all off in December. Depending on the build process I may be able to sneak the Sbach in between other stuff.

Up here its the end of the business day for the most part.

You should be able to track it, I found that when its "out for delivery" get the build table ready because you'll have a plane by the end of the day

Hope to work on the Sbach today, I have a DJI flamewheel quad with all the fixings also so they are having a face off on the build table right now....

well I was placing my order today, I had it in my cart along with other items that were not in stock .. I had a pop up price of $ 129.11 , I decided to do 2 separate orders , one for the plane , one for the non in stock items and the price went up to 133.35, then after a lenghy conversation /chat online with a very not very inderstanding person , I decided to cancel my order, now the plane is shown in the Usa warehouse at $ 156.43 20 minutes later 160.12

so the price was jacked up even more, Im Done with HK
