    Airplane-$170.00 Motors-$130.00 Speed Controls-$100.00 all are E-Flite products. Lights-$100.00 Retracts-$120.00 are available from other companies. The lights and retracts I added myself. Lights are from JMD Models and the retracts are electronic gear driven units from Sonic Electric. ,Ray

    I just ordered a set of the Sonic Electric retracts for my airliner. Anyone have any pictures of the retract install to decrease my learning curve??

    RE: E-Flight 777 with lights/retracts and flown at night!

    Retracts and lights look great! Is there anyway you could use a more scale in appearance gear (the nose gear looks like its a bit too stilty but, for the price its a great jet) ? I keep contemplating to get this plane but, the gear and the foam factor always set in. I also saw a build thread on glassing this aircraft and the final results were amazing. I also seen an epoxy and sanded version that looked just as great. I started talking to Ian at EDFMODELS for the 737 (no comparison but, I fear I ill never fly for fear of a single ding).

    Again, GREAT JOB!!!!
    5 Helis, 6 planes, 7 cars.... and always looking for more! Its a disease (so, I tell my wife).

    I saw the build on this plane a year or so ago ( or perhaps another persons) it was very well done and detailed.

    Nice to see it fly and OMG total dark [X(] awesome.
