Yep, there sure is! I have the following plane and fly it in my court, local park and baseball diamond as well. It very durable as well! Here you go:[link]http://e-foamies.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=40&osCsid=8083b71ee56402f0e48b5f26218d794d[/link]

Yes they will be more than helpful with needing assistance at getting the appropriate parts and supplies. Its great for 3D in my opinion, with respect to the radio, I couldn't give you an answer but they may be able to. Hope this helps, good luck.

Your question as to their durability, I've owned two other foam planes (they're now in the garbage). I've yet to have to even have to glue my R3D Mini, yep its durable. As for the cost, at least for me this plane has cost less than what I've paid for the other two planes combined.

72.130 is channel 17 or 18 on the fm band so it may work... check out unitedhobbies.com to finish a yak 55 from hobby lobby for pretty cheap... 4 dollar servos and 18 dollar lipos make a great set for these planes

I still probably prefer the 400 from hobby lobby for these planes... great little motors with a sparkling track record for only 18 bucks

That's what I ordered, as I did not find UH yet.....I got the 400 motor, 3 - 800mah Poly-quest batteries and ordered a CC 18 Thunderbird from my usual shop.

Also waiting on a DX6 system to control it all......
