I guess Ali could fly a brick and make it look like a trainer. It is a beautiful plane, so no doubt it will fly also beautifully. I am really happy that H9 is going off the beaten track and doing this unique warbird. One of my all time faves. I had Marutaka plans scaled up for this at some point but project never materialized. I think H9 managed to capture the looks quite well and the paint scheme is also awesome. I had a look at the user manual already and it seems that retracts about the same as the ones found BH/SG/Phoenix and to my experience they were usable but not suitable for 1k worth warbird. I also have concerns about the wood used by Vietnamese manufacturers, they seem to be light but quite fragile, so less suitable to warbirds imho. All in all, great work from H9.

Sierra has confirmed that they will be offering gear for it. Would sure be nice if it came with them up front, although I am quite sure H9 was trying to keep the cost down as much as possible.
