Re: I just falled in love !!!

I don't know anything about Flight Model, but that scheme is great and from the pictures and the specs it ticks all the boxes to make a good 3D bird. And the price is excellent.

I had a 35cc Redwing Slick shipped directly from China with absolutely no issue, wouldn't hesitate to do it again

Re: I just falled in love !!!

just don't let them talk you into bank transfer to save a few %. If they are willing to take paypal or visa you can get your money back if things go south. looks like they have good planes though.

Pretty sure there are a few reviews/builds on some other sites...I think they are legit.

Re: I just falled in love !!!

I've done it , just pulled the trigger on the white and orange color model F163. They emailled me back with a Paypal invoice for a total of $ 468.00 USD includes EMS shipping to my door.

Now i will have to get another engine for this bird, not sure yet which one i will pick.. DLE 35, PTE 36, EME 35, i will do some thinking on this...
