Default Skyliner 30cc MXS-R build

Been reading a lot of people yelling and ranting about General Hobby. True, there not the easiest people to get in touch with, but they do deliver there product. I ordered and received a 30cc MSX-R. The plane arrived in 2 weeks and was in prefect condition. It was boxed in 1/4 corrugated cardboard. A truck could have run over this package and no damage would have happen. Parts were packed nicely and taped down so as not to move. I thought Id give you a short review of my build if anyone is interested..... if not, Im going to do it anyways.
At first glance, the plane looked very well built.... and with further inspection it was built nicely. I did beef up the firewall, which I do to any plane I build. The hardware package that came with the kit was pretty nice stuff.... although the bolts that went through the ball joint fittings did not fit but I had plenty that worked. The only other issue I had was with the landing gear..... very week in my opinion I had a set from another plane which I substituted for theres. Everything seem to fit perfectly. and it went together rather fast. Will be mounting the engine in the next couple of days and well keep you

I have the exact same plane. Unfortunately I did not get a disc or book of instructions with it. I have tried many times to contact them to no avail.

I don't have the instructions for this plane, but I've built several similar Skyline planes (as well as other China builds). I've found they're all VERY similar. The disks I've received are so generic in nature they're a non event for anyone that's built a few ARF's. You aren't missing a thing....

If you need a hand holler! -Al
