These are jets that I own and a comment on the quality.
Su27 Arttech Ok
F15 E-flite Better
F18 Nitroplanes Outstanding
su34 Freewing Outstanding
I was really amazed at the Nitroplane and Freewing kits that I received just today. I buy the kits without the electronics and swap the hardware between jets.
The su27 is the hardest to do this with because it has very little room for the electronics and you have to carve a lot of the foam out if you go brushless. At least this is my experience. And as far as quality, it does not come close to the other 3. However it is a nice looking jet.
The F15 is a solid bird with plenty of room for the gear. The white foam is not very appealing but that can be easily remedied with an air brush and some water based model paint diluted with isopropyl alcohol. This allows the paint to dry fast. Access to the inside is very easy and well thought out. The landing gear is ok ,but is nothing close to that of the SU34. I would say the only fault with this kit is the lack of detail, otherwise no problem.
The F18, well now I know why RCPOWERS give nitroplane very high recommendation. Just looking at this kit in the box made me smile. Looks absolutely great. Everything fits together perfectly. Nothing to say but good, excellent kit.
I had never heard of Freewing until recently because of the press the SU34 with thrust vectoring received. When I opened this parcel today I was in no way disappointed. The retracts are very good quality and in no way take away from the all around great appearance of this jet. Everything about this kit screams quality. Also this bird seems big even compared to the F15. If your considering this bird, I'd say go for it. Again remember I purchased the kit without the hardware so I can't comment about that. This one cost a little more than the other kits mentioned but I think I got a better bang for my buck.
I'm going to be busy with these toys for a while. I hope this helps anyone who is looking to buy but is undecided as to what to choose. Oh, by the way if your new to RC flight, this may not be for you.
If you have any comments I'd be happy to hear them.
