I am looking for a non-foam mid-size Stinson SR-8/9/10 electric (or one that can be converted to electric). Anyone purchased or have reports on the stinson reliant ARF from Hobbyking?

Specs:
Wingspan: 2180mm
Length: 1570mm
Wing Area: 52dm2
Flying Weight: 5200g

In general, it does look nice. However, for scale appearance, the cowl is a little small and the landing gear is too big. For a semi-scale plane it appears to be ok. I would like to hear from someone who actually has the plane to find out more on how it flies and the quality of the model.

I was just going to order this plane and got the end of the checkout and saw that shipping cost is$81.04 (UPS) from their USA Warehouse. That is ridiculous! I guess I won't add this plane to my hangar.

I just purchased a slightly damaged used EFlite foam Stinson Reliant. I am not a fan of foam aircraft, but I must say I am very impressed with this airplane. It flies like it is on rails, very stable and realistic flight characteristics. It is extremely well engineered and well built with excellent hardware. I keep it in my vehicle and fly it more than any of my glow and gas aircraft. You might want to give it a try. lleach1
