Re: Great Hobbies brand ARFs (GH AIR) ?

Hey Tommy T I have built and flown the Sukhoi Su-26 46 size and let me tell you when in comes in the covering is absolutely gorgeous and flawless no wrinkles, It goes together pretty quickly if you know your way around ARF's as the instructions leave some imagination needed parts, the hardware it comes with is great, the only thing I'd swap out are some of the larger bolts, I'd buy some nice socket head bolts. when its finished they look great balanced perfect and 1 click of trim was all that was needed. Awesome flight characteristics, I wouldnt hesitate on buying another one thats for sure... definately recomended

Buy is a gorgeous plane. I cannot give any first hand experience as to the flying characteristics of the plane but I have seen one in person with a 28cc MLD. The fit and finish looked to be very nice the it looks like it is a very very light aiframe. Also, it looks much better in person as the picture on the website doesn't do it any justice. Would be insane with a DL30 if you could keep it around 9.5lbs which wouldn't be too hard. The guy that had the plane spoke highly of it. It wasn't a rocketship on the MLD28 but vertical was unlimited.
