Happy to have purchased this PNP foamie from FliteTest. Not much of a DIY'er but appreciate all FliteTest has brought to the hobby. This FMS model flies scale/slow as the reviewers have noted. It works great as a cross between the E-flite AT-6 and the FMS T-28 V4. Have reinforced the clevis pins. Main gear are nicely sprung and quite sturdy except replaced the strut wires with K&S music wire. I like the two grub screws at the trunnion. Grinding flats on the wire, it's best to leave a ledge where the grub screw will catch if it loosens. The original strut wire is ground all the way to the end. Once landing the starboard gear fell free of the trunnion. Minor damage. Gear sequencer much easier to work with than the Avios C-130. BEC was flakey out of the box. An aircraft this valuable deserves a separate BEC anyway. Battery tray works well but it's advisable to cover the wiring bundle so it doesn't get snagged. Flying 3000mAh and 4000mAh 4S. Shimmed the prop blades to increase pitch since I'm flying at high elevation. Flawless radios, LiPos, Gyros, awesome foamies. What a great revolution for the hobby.

Plane came on time. No major damage to packaging. Opened box up and upon removing the wings (which were stacked on top) it was discovered that the fuselage had a large crater in the side of it. Further investigation revealed that the canopy was not fixed to the fuselage on the left side. I called Hobby Town customer service and spoke to Austin. He wanted pictures so I obliged. Shortly after Austin replied to my email and offered to credit my card $75 and said to keep the plane. This was a birthday gift for my son and he did not want a damaged present so I declined his offer and asked for a replacement. I waited for his response over the weekend and then sent out a follow up on Monday. He replied shortly after and informed me that he had emailed me a RMA number and that they would send me another plane once they receive the one I return. Probably not the way I would do business but. I am out of town for Thanksgiving and will send the plane back when I return home next week. The detail of the plane is excellent and my son and I cannot wait to get the other one.

It came with parts broken but Amain is working on replacing the parts but it is taking some time to get the parts. I still have not flown the Air Plane yet.
