    Well that's not great news. Looks like Dynam is going to miss out on some sales.

      I admire the "Principle over Profit" stand MRC is taking on this and will wholeheartedly support your decision, the P-61 graphics I got from Callie will go on my tool box as they will be the wrong scale for the Flightline 2000mm P-61

        I fully understand and agree with Motion's decision. The Dynam P-61 will NOT be part of my fleet.

          Huh? You understand and support such declaration without further explanation? That’s something I don’t understand....

            I mentioned some time ago that the issues with the Marauder kinda gave MRC a black eye and I stayed away from that one.
            You don't need to look like a raccoon with both eyes darkened from Dynams latest folly.

                  The explanation came at the end of the other Black Widow thread:

                    I must also add my support for MRC. I'm just very disappointed in Dynam's behavior in this matter.

                        That is a very smart business move. Why should MRC have to deal with all the continuing issues with Dynam products? A business HAS to make a profit to STAY in business. When a product is defective & constant complaints with issues arise & a customer expects the seller to make good on satisfying the customer, that profit goes out the window now there is a loss to the business. Can't succeed with losses. For those who have never been in business & don't have a comprehension of profits & losses, you'll just have to trust MRC's judgement they made the right decision. I could see the writing on the wall with the Marauder & now this one with all the posted responses regarding the poor QC & defects with both. Let those who really want this plane go ahead & buy it, & then deal with the issues as they arise. Thanks MRC for not giving in.

                          ok, first point, these two guys are very entertaining, and I love the video.

                          second, based on my limited experience with Dynam planes, I am not surprised by this review.

                              I bought my B-26 from Motion and I can't help but compare it to this P-61. I love my B-26 but .....................................
                              The retracts were unacceptable and have been replaced. The fit of the main wing on the fuse was appalling. The power is acceptable but could be more. They should have used a beefier, higher kv motor. Going 5s or 6s would have been nice but would have added to the price unnecessarily.
                              Knowing the above, the B-26 flies very nicely and lands beautifully. Now, comparing it to the P-61, I think the P-61 is slightly heavier (and draggier) and with the same power system, it will likely be "sluggish". All the videos I've seen so far would suggest this. It doesn't seem to have the same zip as the B-26. Does the V2 P-61 have the same retarded retracts that won't work in the cold? Quite frankly, I'm kinda glad Motion won't be carrying this. I really don't want a plane that is likely a lesser performer than the B-26.

                                  It's nice to see a company that looks out for its customers first and not just what profits themselves. Way to go Motion!

                                      I still really want a P61. I would like to know if Flightline will have this on the "to do" list or not. Because if they are planning on doing one then I'll be very happy to wait. If not, then I can get the Dynam one and spend time fixing it.
                                      In my hanger: F-4, A-4, A-10, F-104, P51D "Iron Ass", B-24, Dauntless SBD, F7F Tigercat, Dynam B-26, Lipp.P19, Durafly Komets, Vampire, Sea Vixen. A Radian XL... Coming soon: P-61

                                      Lots of Rabid Models foamies, including my 8' B17 and 9' B36... and some snot-powered planes including Mud Ducks!
