In some of the photos on these sites you can see some very popular planes. P-38, F-15, Corsair, Bixler/SkySurfer..............
I'd love HK to pick up the 2 Channel Micro Constellation and put the same electronics out of the EasySky B-17. I have one and if I finally get some time will transfer the electronics out of one of my spare B-17s

taz - If I worked in that factory, I'd be an expert pilot! Wouldn't have to worry about crashing any of my planes.

Kevin - the winds are too strong here over the weekend, but I'll give it a try within the few days (no indoor venues here sadly).

I recognized the tail art right away. I have a distant relative that was in the Air Apaches, 345th Bomb Group, 498th Falcon Squadron. He did not serve on the Lady Lil from that squadron depicted here. The B25J was an awesome airplane that bring 14 forward firing guns to bear on a ground target. They could drop a light bomb load on top of their devastating ground fire. If you would are interested here is a few links to the 345th, and another showing the Lady Lil. Their history and their missions are remarkable and I could go, but I won't.

Mine arrived a little while ago.
A couple of notes for HK,
1, you might want to get somebody that actually knows what the plane can and can't do and proof read the box art and website before printing and going live with the plane.
**Printing on the box says steerable nose wheel!! Yeah, if you could stick your finger in the nose of the plane and steer it while it is taxiing!! There is a steering arm there, just no servo to control it, plus it will need to be locked off. Mine just free wheels buy itself.

2, you might want to get somebody that actually knows what the plane comes with and what it doesn't, and proof read the box art and website before printing and going live with the plane.
**On the website it states that you need a TX/RX that can be programmed for differential steering. Mine came with an RX!!
**Printing on the box says steerable nose wheel! No it doesn't!

3, INSTRUCTIONS would really help

Andy, have you put yours together and tested it yet?
Buy the look of your photos, your elevator control rod is not connected to the servo arm. Looks like it (rod) is just sitting on top of servo arm.
Plus what plugs did you plug the motors into?? Left and right motors in the left and right plugs or in the front and back plugs. Would help if we had some instructions to go buy!!
And same with the ailerons, left to left?? Right to right?? You would think that would be the way to go, but you just don't know with HK!!

Warning!!


Guys, before powering up, check your battery polarity!!
HK, or who ever made this plane has wired the battery connected back to front!! (At least mine is)
Luckily I checked before connecting my battery.
I have 4 batteries that would fit this plane, but they are wired reversed to this plane, but fine in other the planes they go in!!

I have asked HobbyKing for a PDF manual.

HobbyKing got back to me and said there is no manual printed or PDF, no instructions on setup or binding.

It looks like "In stock" or "available", doesnt really mean what I think it means. Ordered 10 days ago and is still listed as "Processing" I have no idea when I will receive this plane. Not good HobbyKing.

I agree!!!

I just tried to cancel my order (the model is obviously not in stock as advertised). No one answered Live Online Chat for twenty minutes after an automated message saying they were busy. So now I'm waiting on an email conforming cancellation ... yes, I know ...

Good products, poor service, poorer Customer Support.

Brett from HobbyKing kindly replied to my shipping inquiry letting me know that my order departed three days ago.

Too bad that the Order Status as shown on the HK web site is as slow to update as the orders going out of the US warehouse (eight days from order to out the door). Spoiled, I know.

EDIT: Actually Brett "lacked candor" when he said he could not refund my order because it was already shipped on 16 Mar ... it actually left the warehouse yesterday. Kind of funny all around.
