Banana Hobby Airbus A380


Here's the new A380 which is available at Banana Hobby. Here's a couple of pictures of my daughter holding it. This will be our first EDF airliner.

FYI you can get the airframe for about $145 plus $35 air parcel shipping (7-9 days) from pw-rc, since xmas. And this plane is more tricky to setup and requires mixing. The e flite 777 ($140 airframe) flys hands off with standard aileron, elev.

I have over 50 flights with my A380 Airbus and never needed any special mixing. Standard aileron and elev. is all that is required to fly this bird.

Hi cward8,
Why you have to wait. I ordered one from pw-rc.com and came within 5 days.
Total price is 317.00 shipped by EMS.
I don't think you can buy any cheaper.

This is why I am waiting to see what BH will offer them at here in the states. Shipping will be a lot less coming from a reseller here, I believe. Also, BH usually under cuts the others and offers the same plane for much less.

This is why I am waiting to see what BH offers the A380, before I bring in a shipment myself. It's getting tough to compete against some of the larger RC distributors here in the US, who bring in large containers of jets. For what the small guy buys the product for and the shipping costs involved with bringing them in from China, there isn't much money left for profit or to make it worth the time to resell.
