Ho hum
I know nothing about the owners of the business. They are probably good people.
Their products sure seem to be the "same old, Same old" that many many others have for sale.

My guess is someone went to an expo somewhere and bought some stuff to sell. The winner of course is the manufacturer, they have made their sales. They are happy. Th efact there is huge amounts of their stock out there in warehouses isn't their concern.

I recognise the photos of the planes, the manufacturer is a reasonable one. At least they have the only Chinese engine worth having (The DLE) in their range.

I wish them all the best in making a profit whilst trying to compete against the same products elsewhere. I hope they have great service to back up the products - that is where the real difference is.

Yes I still like the Zenoah and Sach's engines as well the 50cc Ultimate looks interesting though.

Yeah, but Redwing doesnt have nearly as many to offer. At least not as of now. This new site shows 30cc pitts12, ultimates as well as a few others and in different sizes. The ones they do have in common do look to be from the same manufacturer.

I saw pics of the 30cc Pitts on the gold wing rc website. It looks like you can get it in a few different schemes and the pics look pretty nice.

Chances are this is a clearing house for Chinese ARF makers with products that do not make the standards for some of the US ARF sellers. I know that certain US ARF sellers ONLY use certain Chinese ARF makers becasue of their quality...some of the stuff that comes out of China is absolute crap...poor design, poor materials, poorly built all covered in a fancy cover scheme to get someone to buy it... then again some of the stuff that comes out of the north america is also crap. I have seen brand name kits with some pretty poor quality wood being sold...so i guess the only way to ensure you are getting top value for your dollar spent is to build it yourself, buy from a reputable ARF supplier, buy from a reputable kit supplier or pick your own materials and plans and build it from scratch!
