Haha I came here to write the exact same post, you beat me too it. I have a JS1400 to put in one of these babies but would like to see and hear about the plane from someone who actually has one first.

Mine is on the way. I can't wait for the "C", it looks so much better than the Super.

Dizzane, lets see who gets theirs first. Between the two of us the first will be #1 and then #2. I'm hoping Sunday is a good day to maiden them!

I was going to post images of the build, but there is no building to this plane... just glue the wings in and hook up the servos. This is a nice little plane for under $200, I did pull the RX and install a Spektrum 6100. The nose is kind of a joke but other then that I am happy... Hope to get a test flight on Sunday.

Oh yeah one other thing: These do not come with the lipo charger, I know it's not a big deal, but the box says it comes with one. As of now their website states is doesn't come with the charger. I called them on this one, the box says it is included and their website do not state is was not included... until now. I did give them a call and they are now sending me out one.

Looks nice. What is wrong with the nose? Not obvious from the picture.

Are you worried about the low main gears? I worry that if you take off on a dirty runway the fan would suck in some junk and get damaged.

Just saw this tonight on the park flyers page. Looks very promising!

NO WAY I would put an AR6100 in it though. Too many crashed planes & heli's out there with it including one of mine. I'll go with an AR6200 or the new AR500. I've had very good luck with the 6200 in my F-27c Stryker .

Somewhere it also says it can be assembled with regular CA, which indicates to me it's EPO foam.

True??

The nose is just a very thin hollow plastic cone, so you just need to be very careful with it.

As for using CA I am not sure I made sure to use foam safe CA.

Anyone notice that the aileron servo arms are installed not centered? Got any ideas how to correct this without muffing the decals?
Also found out that the RTF version does nit include a charger.... Nitro has corrected their web page, but the box & instructions show it as included.

I had the same thing.....I carefully removed the servo, took it apart , removed all the gears, operated it, put it back together, and it now works.
