Very nice initial impression, a bit on the expensive side, but time is money and quality factors in as well
Huge shipping box, very well engineered box, cardboard as thick as 1/2" plywood
High quality glass and ultra coat finish
Retracts and electric brakes included
Lots of carbon/glass aft of the fan mount

I'm getting started on this model, interesting subject, and quite good looking outlines.

Recently, I finally got around to starting my Me 262 from Airworld.

I cut the flaps out.
I didn't want to omit them on a plane of this size for two reasons. First, I thought it would look kinda funny without them. Second, I hope that they might work and help with landings and take-offs.

I've mounted the tail servos and plan to reinforce the main gear mounts soon.

I ended up using the JetFan 90 on 12 cells with a HET 700-60-935 kv motor.

(2) 6 cell batteries in series, ESC's in parallel

Some pictures soon
