I've flown brucie1dog's Super Star, and must say, she flys like a charm! She's a good plane for handling wind, as well.

I hope an EZoner picks her up!

it's been awhile, but I finally left negative feedback on this.
The TX was dead- non-op. Motor shaft bent all to heck and the motor toasted. Speed control appears to have been seriously overheated. Poorly packaged with no regard to the condition of the plane- No response from emails sent.
Finally felt like making it known so nobody else gets shafted. This plane ended up being spare parts.

Knowing the seller, this seems odd. Hopefully you guys can work something out.

I'm not the one who screwed up- the price would have been good if it was 'perfect' and withh all the extras. a picture wouldn't have shown the tx was cooked internally and the prop shaft was bent.
I have his address and can even get his driving record and last 5 years income tax statements if I wanted to- that isn't the point. I'm just stating that it wasn't as advertised and he didn't respond afterwards for what he claims is a legit reason. Whatever- I left the feedback and wrote it off as one of the very few bad experiences I've had in MANY years of buying stuff this way.

yup ...another

that's a shame that people would do this.you know that this action by the seller puts the rest of us in a position not to trust some people in this forum.
but i understand it can and will happen,we just have to keep up with the feedback,and not let this person ruin it for the rest of us.

"Fys very well,"

I guess he misspelled "FRYS".

This item is clearly misrepresented and a shame..

daveWCO..You must have been #1 or #2.

I aplogize!

I was unaware of the problems. I had not been on-line since mid April. I stopped flying because of the heat here in AZ. Last time I spoke with the purchaser it was my understanding that there was some damage in shipment but he was able to easily solve that. I would have thought that if there had been a larger problem I would have been contacted by phone or mail. The plane had only been flown 3 times and was in good shape prior to leaving Tucson. This was not a situation to mislead anyone!
