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??

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!!!!

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.
