Yes, it needs a pilot. Still looking for a good one in the correct scale, about 1/7th. This is one that Hobby Lobby should have before too long.

While it is the same molding as the one that is sold in Europe there are changes to the overall set up.

Great news. Good to see HL getting back in the big foamy market.

Thanks guys -

This is the BH Starmax/Blitz RC Kit - It's almost complete with some final modifications to the landing gear once more - still not happy with it.

Overall - the plane has descent lines and builds up fairly well.
