Default Nitro planes tiger meet f18???

Before I started this thread, I started one about banana hobbies f18. After about 2 months of getting reviews, I realized that I shouldnt get the jet. So I started looking once again and found this tiger meet f18 from nitro planes. I have heard some decent things about nitro planes but I am still not so sure. Heres the link: http://www.nitroplanes.com/exceed-rc...r-version.html Anyone have any experience with nitro plane's quality, service, pricing? Would you recommend buying from their site? What about the jet, has anyone had any experience with it? Are there any problems with it? Any info would be great, thanks.

Looks like the same exact one hobby lobby sells. It's not a bad jet. To me it flies like a good trainer. Nice and relaxing. Biggest complaint is the small battery tray and 1300 mah it comes with. I and I'm sure many others ended up boring out the battery compartment to fit a 2200 mah batt.

After getting my Banana Hobby F-18, I don't know if I would go any smaller. I like the 90mm size. In comparison, how much smaller is the nitro planes f-18? Nitro and Hobby Lobby about the only other companies with similar size F-18's? I am REALLY interested in a 90mm F-4 Blue Angel. Any ideas where I can find one like that?

My Jolly Rodger F-18 from nitro came with a 2200 mil liPo, plane flies great.

About the only thing I dislike about it is the VERY unscale main gear.

I Agree They Sent Me The Red Viper Version 4 Cell 2200 Lipo Flight Times Are 6To 7 Minutes With Throttle Control. Build Video Link Below With The F/A 18 Tiger And The F/A 18 Red Viper You Can See The Size Different When I Hold Them Up Together
