Anyone have info on this ARF? I'm very tempted to buy it but, would like more info on the quality of it before I spend my money. It's reasonably priced for it's size and would be a great way to get into larger scale birds.
It's buildable as a nitro or electric and will weigh approx. 5 lbs when finished. I haven't been able to find any videos, forum posts, etc. on this bird yet so, if you have any knowledge of it I'd appreciate the info.
It's marketed by an on-line store called "General Hobby" and it's offered on Ebay by "Best-Hobbies".


Thanks,
RJ

It looks like it is made by Richmodel. I found this: http://www.avia-richmodel.com/index3_1.html I've only owned one plane made by them and it seemed to be decent quality IMHO. Mine was a P-40 that unfortunately didn't live past its maiden.

Thanks for the info and link. I found it on their web page but, no indication of the mfg. Richmodel appears to be a retailer. They are displaying the same add, pictutres, etc. as Genral Hobby.
Sorry to hear about your P40. Hope you're having better luck with your other planes.

My appologies. Looks like Richmodel is the mfg. I've seen more detail on some of their other planes and they look well made. Thanks very much for the info.
