+2 on hating the cheezy, restrictive little battery bomb-drop grille. Unfortunately that also probably means that the plane is bound for the "fruit" company, since they market so many planes that have that useless silly little door (almost as if they were the ones telling the manufacturer to put that thing on planes they distribute).

Are yo uguys ass-uming it's a battery box? I dont see hinges or the little latches. Looks more like a cheater hole to me, more intake area.

I don't like the looks of it though.

OK , I can tell u, this is not battery box, just the Cooling holes. you can use 6s 3000---6s 10000 battery. HAHAH

Another pet peeve: they need to stop saying "all-metal retractable landing gear" when the retract units are mostly plastic (as looks to be the case here)....just because they tacked on some metal spring struts. If it ain't ALL metal, don't lie and say "all" metal.

Agreed....we need metal struts and metal retracts with metal trunnions.

I think most RC planes would qualify as easy to demolish...but it's nice to know that this plane is designed from the start with ease of demolition in mind...

There are two versions of the landing gear, a full metal landing gear and another metal outside wrapped in plastic.The all-metal landing gear are optional configuration

Providing the price is reasonable, I am ready to open the wallet for this. I have been searching for a 90mm VJ. Please let us know when, where, and how much. Also, posting the manual would be great, if there is one. I am excited about this and can hardly wait to get my grimy paws on one. I might even have to buy one for my brother!
