  • MotionRC is VQ's US distributor?

    I see Motion is carrying a subset of planes from VQ models. But VQ's webpage only lists one distributor for US, and that is MotionRC. So ...what about other VQ legacy planes? I bought that 110" B24 last year, and need a new right wing. Is it possible to buy this through MotionRC somehow? I have not been successful procuring it through Legend nor VQ directly (yet).

    Can I fly my B-24 with only one wing and call it a B-25? I don't think so.

    I can't comment on the Motion distribution and parts supply line as this is something only they can respond to. But sure, you can fly the B-25 with one wing. Turn it into a U-control plane and fly in circles.

      Sorry for the slow response. I just saw this now. Ideally, I want to carry most of their planes. The reality is that they are a small factory and balsa wood is in very short supply. You will see our selection of planes increasing slowly. The goal is to continue to restock the planes on our website while adding new ones. How long this takes is going to be highly dependent on the wood supply, production capacity, and customer demand. We're seeing prices for balsa skyrocket. Even with these high prices, it is difficult to procure more balsa to make more planes and it is having an impact on production. Unfortunately, the raw material price is seriously affecting our purchase price and we're going to be forced to pass that along as new planes arrive. I know, I'm full of good news 🙄

          Thanks for the response. With the ARF, retracts, motors, servos, receiver, ESCs...I am already into this several thousand dollars, so I don't think I'm going to worry about the cost of wood. I had contacted Vinh back in the fall, and he said he had a right wing there, and the price is not high, but shipping it directly from there by itself would cost almost half the cost of the whole ARF. Since I'm not in a hurry anyway (I am never lacking for unfinished airplanes), I thought I'd wait for Motion to import it.

            We do have the Black Horse B-24 on order in the green color along with all the spare parts. However, we do not have the silver B-24 and spare parts on order. Which color do you have?

              We don't have the Mig on order now but I would like to order the Mig for the future. I would like to stock that plane with all the spare parts. Black Horse is a bunch of perfectionist craftsman and they want every plane to be perfect for the USA. If they feel something is not yet 100% perfected, they direct me toward a different model until they feel it is perfected. I don't have the Mig on official order yet so I don't have any ETA. Unfortunately, I suspect it would not be this year.

                I have the green one. But it is the VQ version (110" span) - is that same as Black Horse or different?

                  Sorry to confuse you. I misspoke. I meant we have the Nexa Green B-24 on order which is the same as your green VQ B-24. Parts are on order too. The order has not shipped yet but I would think it should ship fairly soon. I have multiple right wings on order so you should be good to go once it arrives.

                        Thanks! Will these show up on the website eventually for pre-order?

                          I don't think we will have them for pre-order but they will be on the site soon. I imagine it should be shipping soon. Freight is normally 30 days from the factory but lately has been running 60. We try to get things on the site as soon as they ship. At that point it will show "out of stock" until it arrives. I already had a few wing sets on the order (before I added more) so we should have plenty of stock.
