Mine arrived today! I am amazed at the quality! Ming you should take the C-17 mold from TS and make it your own. This 777 is better built, better quality, and overall better than the three of my Globemasters. I am impressed and the $250 shipped price tag is awesome! IMO you could charge much more and get it. The 737 just went on my "must have" list!

BTW, For those on the fence, this kit DOES come with Air France decals and the normal windows and doors

How about kitting a 707 setup? There are so many options, you could do an airliner, KC-135, AWACS, military passenger jet, or could go as far as selling optional wings, tail and engines to make a 727.

Hi ,
He was using a 3S 3500 pack. I am using a 3S 3000 pack.
My buddy flew for around 6-8 minutes. I usually fly for around 5 minutes
to be safe .

Thanks. I'll be using a 3S 3000 & 3S 3300 for my flights. Think I'll just go for 4 minutes then see how much I have left in the battery and adjust my flight times from there.

Going to order one of these on Tuesday. How long does shipping to aus usually take? I will be running 3S 4000, so will have to do a bit of cutting, but I will be safe with 5 mins. I stick to 5mins on everything.

Once I hit that buy button I will be pacing back and forth lol. Our long strip is designed for N and S winds and I am not sure this will have the take off room from our E/W strip and we are coming into our season where most of the time we get E. So here is hoping I can get it here and have a fly before the wind changes and I have to wait 5months lol.

Might want to check the size of the battery if you have to purchase them, I will be useing 3300, they fit tight and I have to carve the hatch opening to clear the cables, opening up the tunnel that the battery fits into could be a pain if they are to big

They are zippy 4000. I bought them for my A380. The only 3300 I own are 4S. Don't really want to have to buy new batteries.

Minus getting my DX8 back from Spektrum (fixing dropout issues), mine is all ready to fly. Callie always does an amazing job of the decals. I had her scale up a set of 2nd Generation PanAm colors from an Airbus A320 1/144 model! Using a 40C 3S 3300 Sky Lipo battery. This is one awesome 777 and should fly well!!!
