It's all layed out for you on the stock wing. Takes about an hour.
I wish I hadn't thought the aileron wing would always be available. The stock wing is already assembled so cutting the wing with dihedral is going to complicate things but I'll give it a shot. I have everything but hinges so I'll try glue hinges. I don't know about EPO foam but they work really well on EPP.

The Gamma pros are on the water and should arrive the end of this month. The aileron wing should be any day now. Truthfully I thought I would have received it at the warehouse yesterday. I do think that they should be to the stores by end of this week.

Hello everyone,

The Gamma 370 Pro will be up on our web site later this week. Also, please note that availability of the aileron wings has not been impacted by the Pro but rather due to higher than expected demand. More stock will be available any day now and we'll continue working to ensure they're always in stock in the future.

Replacement shafts for the 370 brushless motor will be available soon (item # AZS1229S) and are on the way with the Gamma 370 Pro airplanes now. Hopefully they'll be available in stores late this month, and please note that the threaded portion of the shaft is now longer so the prop and rubber spinner fit just like they do on the shaft for the gearbox (this is also the case for the shafts of the motors installed in all Pro airplanes and future shipments of upgrade/spare part motors).

What batteries are people using in their Gamma?

I'd like some suggestions, to narrow down my search.


It's my first plane and I've been having fun. But, I did crack the gearbox/motor mount and drove the shaft into the bearing, damaging the bearing. It doesn't appear that the gearbox/motor mount is available for purchase. I'm going to check some bearing supply houses and try and find a replacement bearing.

Should I buy the Gamma 370 pro or the super cub? I want to eventually upgrade. I just want to be able to fly really really high and far. I know the super cub is bigger so it should be able to hand more wind correct?

IMO, for the Money, when it comes out, the $100 Gamma Pro can't be beat.
It's standard setup will include the brushless motor and Aireron wing, you can set that up for beginner by going 2s on the battery and not setting up/plugging in aileron servo: just go 3 channel (Plug Rudder servo into aileron slot on Rx).
When you're ready for the next experience level, meaning more speed and ailerons, you're all set to go!
2s batteries on the brushless is tame.
3s batteries on the brushless is FUN!
Flying in wind is a matter of practice.
The Gamma does fine so long you use common sense and always know which way the wind is blowing.
How far and how high you get it is up to you and your Tx/Rx combination.
I've lost contact briefly but that was due to low power on the Tx.
I've never lost contact high over head but then, it's hard on the neck looking up for long periods.
The one down side is the crappy Tamiya connectors.
You will want to change those out to something else.

In my experience with teaching people to fly...been flyn 45 yrs plus...a 4 channel setup tends to lend to a more successful learning curve than a 3 chnl...but thats me and my thoughts...I also do not agree with putting the rudder control on the right stick...this also makes learning to fly 4 chnl later harder....but again my thoughts ...we all have different approaches and I for one wont argue the virtues tween 3/4 chnl setups...not to ferverently anyhow ....

Thank you for the opinion, but I decided to go with the T-28.
