Fly Eagle Vs Jet legend Vs Skymaster vs Fei Bao
 
These 4 companies seem to be selling almost the exact same models, are the re sellers from 1 manufacturer? If you had to rank them, how would they be listed.

I'm not trying to start a flame war with fan boys, just curious at there selections which are very similiar.

Fly Eagle seems to have the most models but I couldn't find any USA distributor, the same for Jet Legend.

Wel, I'm from Brazil and over here most of the pilots prefer Skymaster jets, they have some complains about landing gears in Feibao models, but Feibao has made some improvements since then.
As for the others I really don't know.
Let's see the others impressions.

Haha, I will contribute based on my experience. I would rank as the following:

1. Skymaster
2. Fei Bao
3. Jet Legend
4. Fly Eagle


1,2 and 3 are actually very close. Basically what it comes down to for me is how much re-engineering / reworking I have to do to the model to get it to and acceptable state of readiness. They all require a fair amount, none are ready to go based on just following instructions provided. Fly Eagle I have no experience with but I rank them 4 based on word a mouth. I might be building one of their F-14's soon so that will give me some first hand knowledge but take that for what its worth. Too many things to cover though in detail. Bottom line is the finished model is what the builder makes of it, they all can be very good fliers for the most part.

I have so far only bought fly eagle jets and i have not had any big issues with the jets.  .

I am currently doing a company comparison for my next jet f-16.  I'm looking at price and scale appearance as my two points.  In my vast 1 year experience i have determine that all companies including BVM have issues.  

I know fej f-16 fly great because of Fender and I watch B1 Bob rip the skys in Austin with his Jet Legend f-16. 

Like Fender stated they all have pros and cons.

Fly Eagle says they have new honey comb construction, also why don't they show there online prices? Are they more or less than skymaster? HRM Maybe I should have started a poll instead.

Simple. Focus on customer service. Period.

All of these either develop problems OR you may need aftermarket support. This is where they are supposed to shine.
The answer is out there.

If this is the focus I have had great support from Lowell and James. I needed some new tires for my F-16 got them the next week, and when DHL played football with one of my boxes they took care of it with just a small video showing everything. All they asked for was some pictures, I just like video. I give them A on customer service. That is all I will throw in on this discussion unless someone asks specifics, but lets here from people who have tried the others as well.

Exactly. All of these companies have sucked at customer service at one point, plenty of proof here in RCU.
The key is who is doing a good job NOW.

Oh, oh. You just stepped into it now ...

Is the voting for who you think is the best of the worst, or the worst of the worst?

Getting the popcorn ...

I'm not going to vote since I don't have any direct experiences with most of these brands except for a few of the Skymaster jets I was asked to build. But after going through the kits, I couldn't charge enough to make it worth my while to correct the flaws and modifications I thought were necessary.

If I did vote, I'd vote for FeiBao, just because of the Korean women who pose with the jets.

CamLex Enterprises (Portland, OR.) is the US dealer for Jet Legend.

My JL T-45 has been good to me for 5 years. It's still in service.

Hi

The best is SkyBaoEagleLegend:)

Well, I'll explain myself. The ideal far eastern ARF jet would be one with:

Feibao layer and resin
Skymaster landing gear
Flyeagle paiting
Jetlegend price

We are waiting for it SkyBaoEagleLegend....Oh, almost forgot: SERVICE sucks

Regards

Nuno
