I am doing a couple of retro planes right now. One with a 1.60FX and the other with a BGX-1. That should use up a little nitro next year.

Jeff I am thinking maybe I will sell my Cub to you this winter. I will pull the servos out though and sell the plane, engine, smartfly etc for 1800. That should get you twitching.

Fit and finish may be good but they sure don't know how to paint a car. My 5 year old Ford has paint falling off!! Not rusting just simply falling off. Man they been painting cars since they were invented. Aparently Ford hasn't figured it out yet. Every one thats 5 years old has paint falling off of it.

Ohh and the 6 drive shafts that have been through the car too. and you can't change a hangar bearing or u joint. Friggin 3 piece drive drive shaft on a mid size car. how the heck does that make sense


Junk I tell ya Junk!!


Ask me how I really feel.......LOL

My 2009 was doing the same thing when I sold it. Very poor bond between the primer and the stuff they treat the metal with.
