Look at the Cox Micro Warbirds threads for the P-47, these are made in the same moulds.

I have the ME 109 ,spitfire, zero, FW190, P40 and P47 I need the corsair. They are exactly like the cox planes. My cox spitfire's wing fits the gravity plane perfectly, so yes they are made from the cox moulds. I talked with the owner of gravity and was told they purchased the moulds from Cox. You cant go wrong with gravity hobby they are awesome to deal with and there products are first rate. They are also more then reasonable in price for what your getting. I also bought the Free flight 10"ws zero, Spitfire,P51 and BF109 They are awesome little planes I am doing a conversion on the spitfire to 3ch RC and I'm near completion on it. I plan to convert all the 10" ws planes and build the other classic warbirds 4Ch will be looking at putting in the parkzone bricks

Posted in another thread that the site only works for the United States and (I guess Canada because there were reports of UPS excessive brokage fees by some Canadian buyers). Maybe only North America. International sales are reported to be in the works.

FYI: PayPal payment goes to a payee in Hong Kong, but my order shipped (same day) from Florida and is in route.

Tim HK is where the planes are being made from and the main base of opperation the florida location is a satalite sales location. So yes your payment goes to HK. But there is no problem with getting orders. I have talked with the Owner several times on the phone from his home. He is a very nice guy and also builts and flies planes. Gravity has some big plans for there products, and welcomes input from it's customers. If anyone has any issues I can help to get them resolved for you. I'm currently working on something for them, as my thanx for such great service I received. I hope to have it complete very soon. I will make a suggestion to try and get sales in other countries.

I got the C130. It's pretty nice and you get 4 motors and a speed controller.

I added 2 mini servos and all works great....just haven't had any weather to fly.

By the way some how it was only $29.95.

HEHE Dennis there prices are very low. and as you can see the quality is first rate. If they stay low priced and quality product they will sell a ton of product. Talking with the owner thats basicly the plan.
Good luck on your Maiden flight

Did the Cox ARFs have the stocked brushed motors?
I noticed someone on Flea Bay is auctioning Cox ARFs NIB ARFs, but have no motors.
What if this guy is putting Gravity kits in old Cox boxes? How would anyone know the difference?
I'm assuming the motors are stamped.. But his ARFs have no motors. ??
It's just an interesting thought.

The Cox ARF's have motors, too. Everything is the same in the package, other than the instruction sheet (Which is basically the same). He must have lost the motors if he isn't including them.

I can't believe anyone would pay $65 for a COX ARF. If anyone wants one, I'll sell a NIB RTF(with 3 channel radio installed) P-47 or P-40 for $65 shipped. I guess I'll put them on Ebay.

Anyone that does not know they are available again. You should have seen them when the Gravity Hobby birds first hit. They were getting dumped in the classifides here and on eBay. Saw an ARF Corsair go on eBay for $98 plus shipping.
