Case in point, I also purchased a PNP 90mm Viper Pro, Ferrari Paint job, (this is a very seriously nice plane). HSD sells them for about $450, I picked this one up at general hobbies for $290. One thing though GH is not the coolest place to purchase a plane from. You can get your plane, but support is non existent. So always keep in mind your giving up something to get these great deals. You will see a bunch of, "KIT" type planes at both HSDGO.com, and General Hobbies. Hobbyking also has a tone of them, as well as Motion I think has some. This is a very expensive way to finish a model. I just get the PNP's and do a ton of testing, repairing, and mods as needed. All models need it, some more than others. But ya can save a ton of money. Chip, this is the honest truth. Other than Dynam Retracts, I have not had a single failure in any stock PNP equipment. I hear and read about it all the time here on the forum. I got about 32 models to date. Something to consider.

    One last thin Chip, Motion has always been my preferred place to do business. Yea I know I've been bit..ing and moaning lately. I like them because I can always depend on there support and good service. I always stop and consider the ramifications of ordering a cheep plane. But if it boils down to a risk I'm willing to take, I'll pull the trigger. W
    Thanks, I guess I am spoiled by MotionRC and afraid of purchasing any place other than them HH, AM, and TWR

      Ya know ya got to go with who you trust mate. I can say this I've bought 3 Planes from HSDGO, and all have been excellent. No they are not anywhere near MRC for customer service! The customer service just isn't there. But the planes were awesome. That new Viper being offered by Horizon is pretty tempting. I like it! But if this is your very first EDF I think the Freewing Bae Hawk is a great looking plane. It's on my short list. To me it sounds really good, and looks great. The flight reviews are really good. Best of luck mate.

          Hey Woody, I haven't seen anyone mention the TopRC 800mm A-1 Skyraider before, but I agree with you it's a fun plane for the price! I prefer flying it to the bigger versions out there, but you're right it does require a bit of "finesse" --to me that's the fun part! It's small enough to detail like a plastic model in the space of an evening, too. I did end up swapping out the ESC, mostly because of the connector.


          Have you ever ditched the fixed gear and hand tossed the 75mm Viper? Woot!

          And for the record, I don't mind the "bit..ing". 'Makes it fun and everyone knows we truly appreciate hearing everyone's honest thoughts on our honest best. It's how we improve.

          Thought about it. lol. I've only been back a little less than a year. I put gear on everything, : ) Maybe some day. Guess I just haven't got my hand toss legs yet. But soon, real soon. I love that little A-1. I can stop and fly it almost anywhere. Plus I have never seen another person that has one, at any of my 3 flying fields.

          Best Regards
          Woody
