    Looks like a CMP clone. There is a long thread on it here on RCU. It's a decent plane but the wing is oversized for the fuse. It takes some work to make it look good but it can be done.

    I would ask about spare parts - if its on clearance TBD may not keep spares on hand, assuming they even have them now.

    Ed, thanks for the reply! I have decided against getting this one. If I am going to get one it will either be the CMP original or the ESM hellcat.


    Thanks!

    It's not an arf but take a look at this kit from Chad Veich.

    http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_91...tm.htm#9187106

    It about the same size as the CMP but some better lines to it.
