Re: pilot rc models

Pilot RC planes are awsome!! quite a few of us have them here in Ontario and love them. They are quality kits and great flyers. I don't have any experience with the Sbach but I know the Extra's and Edge's are amazing flying planes. Well worth there money IMO.

If you order direct from Tony you can even get a custom scheme of your choice. If you damage your plane take a picture of what is damaged and he will send you precut parts free of charge other than shipping. Doesn't get much better than that. You won't be dissappointed

Re: pilot rc models

I've got the 122" Decathlon and love it. It went together quickly and easily and uses quality hardware. I've helped put together a few others and they have all been of the same quality. I've had Aeroworks and Extreme Flight planes and I'd put Pilot ahead of them.

Re: pilot rc models

You are gonna love it! It is my favorite. Can you tell?!

I have one of the first production units (#017) and it is a stout machine and still flying hard. Some subtle changes have been made, but it is still the same beast essentially. BarracudaHockey @ FG or TFC has a graphics package for it that is far better than what comes on it, imho.

Re: pilot rc models

Best quality planes on the market. They cannot be beat. And Tony Tan is a stand up guy. He offers free wood replacement if you happen to crack yours up. You take pictures, and he will send you all the necessary material (minus the covering) to repair. Also he has lots of spare parts for the planes.
