Re: Nitro models

The models are a great deal, the hardware is crap. I have the giant scale Zero and it flies like a trainer. Do a search on RCU for your particular aircraft to find issues with regards to weak points and flying characteristics.

Re: Nitro models

I have their Ultimate 120, it's really a great flying model. Nothing special as ARFs go, but decent none the less. You may end up needing to upgrade some linkages and nuts & bolts, but otherwise OK.

Be advised that I was told by them that they only ship to Canada via UPS.

Re: Nitro models

Agreed on the hardware.

I've got their 50cc yak (just balancing now). Some of it might be ok for some applications but in general, you'll want to replace parts once you see/handle/try to work with it.
