Scorpio ARF's from Hobby Lobby- Any Experience?

Anyone try any of the "Scorpio" brand planes from Hobby Lobby, in particular the T6 Texan they offer?

Seems like a good semi-scale bird, larger than the Alfas but with wheels... looking for opinions on quality, performace, and ease of assembly before I buy, thanks!

Best,

Joel

I have built and flown the Scorpio Spitfire and the FW-190 and a collegue is building the Hellcat. I have a couple posts comparing them with other scale aircraft:

Hawklover has a really good thread on his T-6:

Hawklover is quite active, you might PM him to get additional info.

The bottom line is, while "semi-scale" the Scorpio airplanes fly great, look good in the air, are pretty durable(especially if you glass them) and forgiving. Do it!
