  • Eflite F-4, a value choice?

    I just saw that Eflite F-4 phantom has a big price drop. Now it is at 337, dropped from 499. Sounds like a value choice, considering that 64mm F15 on HH site costs 199.

    It's a great value at that price. It flies really well and has been a ton of fun!

      That's a good price!

        Although that is a good price and the discount is very attractive, don't be misled into thinking that they ever sold this plane for $499.00. Their pricing format always shows a "discount" even on the first day of availability. I bought one at "regular" price just the beginning of July and it was around $400.00US.

          I bit on the F-16 when they had a sale, wish I hadn't. MRC sparing practices in comparison are reason enough to avoid Horizon.

          I think the nose gear on this one is problematic, just like the F-16.

            Sales numbers must have been going down.

            Nice price, but not a F-4 fan, here.

              From this morning's flight. So far, this plane has held up well. Even though I've nailed the grass a few times, the landing has been tough enough to take it. My friend's FW F-4, on the other hand, has not been so lucky. He's had to fix the nose gear several times already.

                I've basically learned to fly EDF's on this thing in very short order. It's easy to fly, forgiving, fun. I've replaced the front gear with the avanti v3 nose gear setup and it has held up much better.

                  Nice flight, the landing is soft! The weather seems lousy though, ha
