Received my Blitz RC P-38 from Banana Hobby...


Looks like I rolled a 7.... Received the P-38 today from Banana Hobby, and the box and all of the components inside arrived in excellent condition. The components were very, very well secured and appear to have been repackaged after my order since the lipo I also bought was secured in with the kit.

Clearly I've received a V2 kit... servoless retracts, carbon spars in the wings, almost 58" wingspan. My plane has the gear doors sprung closed. The paint and foam is in excellent condition, and I am incredibly pleased with this purchase. It's worth noting that I did not receive (and was not expecting) any wire harnesses with my kit.

P.S.: In case it's not clear I ordered a P-38 Kit, which is described on the site as the older V1 aircraft. The V1 is slightly smaller than the V2, does not have carbon spars in the wings, and is mounted on mechanical retracts that are pretty much a joke. I was prepared to receive and "deal with" a V1 kit, and am very happy to have gotten the V2 instead. I was also ready, based on everything I had read about Banana Hobby, to receive a nightmare.

Having said that, I am happy to speak-up for a company or seller that does right by me... And these guys got it right.

Enough said, let the pictures speak...
