  • FMS Inventory

    What's up with all the OoS(Out of Stock) of FMS inventory.
    The reason I ask is because of the really high percentage of retracts that are not available which is probably the most replaced item on a model.
    This caught my attention during an initial awareness of a possible change in retract design at this "Official FMS 1400mm P-51D V8 Thread" post.
    Out of Stock.......... RE003(1400 P-51B&D), RE004(1400 Corsair), RE005(1700 Corsair), RE006(P-40B), RE001"metal"(1700 P-51), PT113(1500 P-47)
    After seeing this I also looked at and there appears to be a lot of airframe parts not avail too.
    Are you folks moving away from FMS to focus on Freewing/FlightLine and let Horizon have their FMS parts pie since they dictate pricing/control distribution of FMS in the USA.

    Best regards,

      Horizon seems to dictate all things FMS in N. America and maybe Motion has no control over that. With the marriage between Horizon and FMS, perhaps the honeymoon is over. Horizon pushed to be the one "wearing the pants" in the union. Now FMS is pushing back in their own way (having second thoughts about the pre-nup). Are we seeing the results of the "one (or two) year itch"?

          I order all my FMS plane straight from FMS, cause I get knocked for taxes from HH . Most of the planes I ordered from FMS got shipped from some secret warehouse in Florida
