100 views and not 1 reply lol oh boy.

okay so i received the model. let me start by saying that for$205 + $25 (optional 2 day express shipping otherwise its free shipping) THIS THING IS BUILT SOLID!

do NOT let anyone mislead you this plane is AWESOME! i have inspected every square inch and could not find 1 issue "so far".

i just don't like the scheme. its too typical. i will change a few things on it soon.

by the way, CF LANDING GEAR IS INCLUDED NOW!!

here are a few pics after removing everything. ill continue posting as i build.

note: i have had 2 previous arfs (arfmfg sbach 342 and hanger 9 corsair 50) and this one IMO blows them away by price and build quality. i could say i recommend phoenix models edge 540 91 1.20. lets hope i do not find any issues lol

Been wondering about how good Phoenix planes were. Thanks for your effort! Buddy of mine has a Decathalon on the board. He's impressed with the quality.

hey there! your welcome!

yeah ITS WORTH THE MONEY! i believe their going to raise the price soon. i guess the only con is the pilot figure lol. i personally dont like pilot figures in my plane unless its truly a super scale model. anyway glad i could help!

Servo Extensions

I know you need a couple of Y connections for Elevator and Ailerons. What length extensions and how many do you need to get them back to the reciever?
