I traded for this plane, no idea how many flights it has on it. I've put around ten, and the electric gear is driving me nuts. Just a matter of time before one of the mains won't come back down and I destroy it. Last flight, tail wouldn't come down.... Sitting on the bench, the gear are bipolar.... sometimes they cycle, sometimes they don't. I have an electron controller, but the travel is different and won't go all the way. Has Robart made any improvements with the controller??

They have made updates to the controller. They have had all kinds of troubles with them. Their electric gear are just as you say bi-polar.
You could adapt the gear to air and be done. They can set you up with what you need.

Air all the way! Most reliable and for sure use large tanks and a smaller one any place you can fit it because the volume makes them more reliable and positive than with less air volume.
Mine are going on 10 years without any problems!

Has anyone found a can of rattle can spray paint that comes close to matching the corsair blue on this plane? I have a set of drop tanks that were made via 3d print I'd like to try to get a close match. Thanks!

Humbrol has a navy blue, close but not perfect but not a spray. You can also order personalised spray in a paint car dealer. It cost around 30 USD in Switzerland, I did for another plane

Friend of mine did a scale Bell 407 in automotive rattle cans that he had paint matched, even two part clear. It's almost indistinguishable in pictures from the real thing.

Hi, I usedTamaya TS-15 and it is pretty close. Paint black under it or you will end up having to do few quotes.
