1st Order from Banana Hobby

I ordered the Freewing Su-35 from Banana Hobby a little over a week ago. It shipped within the time line stated and I now have the plane, it arrived intact with functional electronics and I have it programmed and ready to maiden. It is a very impressive aircraft! I was a little leery of ordering from them because EVERYONE seems like they have something bad to say about BH, but that Freewing SU-35 was just too cool. I did not have to contact customer service to get them to ship my order and nothing was other than expected, and in good working order. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents, especially since there are so many bad things being kicked around. I would order from them again based on this experience.

I have both FMS hellcats, and they fly like on rails. also had a few tweaks that needed to happen for both, but nothing too major. like all my other planes I have bought from them over the past 3 years... I'm impressed, and one more thing. the quality of the models are night and day better than when i first started with BH. It is a difference you can feel in the flight as well as see in the finish of my planes that i had. I will buy again, and a gain.

Lol, been drooling over that huge P-51 they just put up. Seems like it needs a good support system for the wings since they are so large. BH seems squared away so far and if they keep improving I don't see a problem with giving them some more of my business...

There is a pretty thick wood support rod for the p51 when I got it and have no issues with bending. Just needs suspension on the landing gear for those not so great landings and it would be great.

I have ordered twice from BH and haven't had any issues. Both Sky Surfer ARFs arrived in perfect condition and in less then a week. It seems that people who have had issues or an axe to grind post way more then the satisfied customers who are out flying.
