I think hobby88 offers a kit version...it might be worth emailing them.

If Nitro planes doesn't want to post on here then someone is going to get my money. Buy the time i would be done with the plane no one would know who the manufacturer is anyway.

To buy that bird from hobby88 it would cost just as much as an arf from nitro. There website sucks and am not sure what the plane even comes with. Is it just a kit or are there some extra items? Weird.

Just another quick update on the FLYFLY B-60. As much as I would like to have positive comments about this specific plane as an ARF, I just can't at this point...too many issues. I would discourage anyone from buying this plane unless it is in kit format and at a VERY good price.

Thanks for the FF update.....I agree, too many deficiencies: I'll just wait until the AeroSky B-60 comes back into stock.

Been watching this thread and went through it all.
Thanks for the Hatch problem post. The latch system looked a little iffy and he did mention it in the Video.
I'll be addressing it before I go to the field. Mine is on hold for weather and time to get to the field.
Is there room here for me to post my modifications, problems and soulioutions.?

out of the box.

Aside from a few forgivable packaging dents (it did come a long way)
I found my first problem, the fuselage seam. no big deal either but if you are not going to do it right why bother. I could have done it my self and really "worked" the inside.

After reading the "tire flat spot" problem I decided to store my model on the celing with the wheels up. .
this is where my model will live, out of the way and safe.

Since I'm clumsy and know it, I decided to attach the winglets with rare earth magnets they are stored where the battery goes. I don't know if they will stay on in flight but what I do know is I will eventually break them off. I'll let you know how it works out.
