I've got about two dozen flights on this bird annd she's been a total joy. Gear is very reliable. Sturdy as a concrete bunker! I've never flown a plane that was so smooth, graceful and easy to fly yet can screem around and terrorize anything willing to come up and fly with you. It really can present itself as the real thing. Check out the picture my buddy took! The Moki 250 and Solo Prop combine for the ultimate sight and sound. So sweet I get all giddy just talking about it! Gotta getcha one.
I got mine through Graham Buchanan. He built it and did the awesome metal painted finish. He is first rate all the way and fairly reasonable...get what you pay for and a dream to work with. You can find him here: http://www.tigermodels.net/
Good luck and keep us posted. Have you been visiting the Moki Care and Maintenence thread on the Warbirds Forum? You should. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
All the best,
