Bananna Hobby F-4F Wildcat


The weak link on this bird is the landing gear. Of course most planes have lousy gear. I am looking for the landing gear set for this plane. Any help would be wonderful. Banana Hobby is B/O until Feb 2016. Mfg wants $60.00 just for shipping. Any help would be great.

What does that mean?

Apparently they still have these for $140. Not a terrible price for a replacement, although not great either.

I would at least post on their forum here about how they don't have these parts either. Ask them if BH expects people to get spare parts by asking for other's parts from crashed models.

Good catch BBill! That is correct, we just replenished stock for the landing gears on this model.

You can find them here:

I am waiting for props and a motor shaft but it appears that the motor shaft is not an option.
I guess I have to purchase an entirely new motor ??

Hey Ldm!

We are expecting more propellers for the F4F Wildcat to arrive within the next 3-4 weeks (late October). I'll be checking to see if we can obtain the motor shaft separately. To keep you updated, I can keep in contact via our text messaging system. Let me know if you have any questions.

hi Alex , any updates ??
Its been months on these parts and BH is out of stock.
Was hoping that on best sellers like the Wildcat and the P40 parts would be supported.
I really back Bh in all the threads but its sincerely discouraging that I can get parcels from China daily and BH would simply not order props and general support supplies for the best selling models in your line.

Ldm,

Just a quick heads up, we are expecting to receive parts for the models you mentioned within the next few days. We did receive a recent shipment of F4F parts which included things like the propeller set, but some have come and gone since. Luckily, we'll be receiving more soon! I'll be sending you some more information shortly as well. Sorry about the troubles, but your support is truly appreciated!

Alex that would be disappointing to know considering I am on the email alert for the props and other parts.
Does that mean the email alerts do not work ?
