These HF Ventus 2AX's are the absolute best bang for the buck in a 5 meter molded scale ship. The new edition just released has a vastly improved retract and scale interior at my request, and Radomir Faltus has responded with a retract worthy of this fine flying airplane. I have 5 arriving this coming week but these are all sold as of yestyerday. More will be forthcoming with the upgrades. Call for details if you are interested.

old style pictures first. hard to see in the first retract picture, but the pivot is black plastic with soft steel rods that can bend and crack on landing. See the following picture for the problem.
