  • I thought the landing in that second video was going to turn into a touch and go!

    • Why doesn't Motion R/C carry this FMS product. It's a great looking and flying 70mm edf jet.

        • Still waiting for someone from Motion R/C to chime in ??? Doesn't make sense to me !

            I'd be surprised if you saw a response from Motion on this. I think it was touched upon earlier in this thread. Motion does carry quite a few FMS products (at present count: 44 of them, only 2 of them EDFS and neither compete directly with what Freewing has) but lately, many of the FMS products have been in direct competition with existing or planned products from Freewing and we all know that Motion has a very close relationship with Freewing. Continuing to ask them to chime in on this public forum isn't going to make it happen. They may see it as a somewhat political subject and most of us respect that they don't wish to open up that can of worms. There are plenty of outlets for this plane and Motion won't hurt financially if they don't sell it. Perhaps one day, they will.

            • Yea, your right. My problem is they got me spoiled. I like doing business with them. There the best in the business when it comes to customer service. They are like the only one that listens to there customer base and generate products that are meaningful and outside the box thinking instead of the same old thing.

                I'm in full agreement with you on this. I have many great customer satisfaction stories of my own pertaining to MotionRC.
                I can make a suggestion to you (a "hint" if you will). Contact Motion customer service ("contact us") and make an inquiry if they would get you one.

                • Oh, I already have one. Got in on the first preorder from FMS. I just like doing business with Motion, I was just wondering since they carry FMS products why they didn't carry the 70mm F-18F. I hope everyone starts making more 6s 70mm jets, it's definitely the sweet spot for current battery technology for flight time and power.

                    FMS Has pretty good customer service also. Just sucks that it takes a while to get anything due to international shipping. Dealing with Horizon though... holy cow. I'm trying to get an issue resolved with them and getting a hold of them or an email reply back in a timely manner is like trying to squeeze a diamond from a turd.

                        Thanks
                        for sure recommend it! The battery bay is small but the battery I use yields 5 min flight times! What more can you ask for with an EDF? Gone are the days of 2-3 min flight times... This plane is very satisfying and a blast to fly!! Here are my touch n go flights from this past weekend...




                        I have way too many planes to list off... But I love to fly them all! the 80-90mm Jets are my newest addiction! Also check out my youtube channel for TONS of flying footage. https://www.youtube.com/user/gooniac33
