Default RCLander F-16 SEPO foam???

Are the RC Lander F-16's Nitro models show in stock the new SEPO foam??? Do they have the newer metal retracts??? Hopefully someone from Nitro models will respond to this...

At that price they are probably not the SEPO foam, but the basic foam
and they are with the plastic base retracts.
AND when considering price remember nitro charges shipping; UPS on this is
between $18 to $24.
We have them in the EPS foam with extra set of METAL retracts at great price,
as well as the SEPO foam with metal base retracts installed and always free shippping.

On The New Nitro Planes RCLANDERS F-16 New Metal Plate To Support The Landing Gear, And Yes The Foam Is The EPS Foam. I'm Sure They Will Start Offering The Metal Retract Upgrade Here Soon.

You mind if I ask you what type of ESC; Motor; and servos you used. I just got the RCLander with retracts and its my firs kit where I need to put all parts in it. It is the 70MM and I basically need everything. I'm pretty new to this and changed it up from sport bikes to this.

Thanks in advance and I checked out some of your videos. Nice stuff

[link=http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12859]Tower Pro sg90[/link] or HXT900 servos work very well and are super cheap on ebay and other stores at max $5 each with shipping.
For the retracts make sure to [link=http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=8752&Product_Name=BMS-380MG_Micro_Servo_(Metal_Gear)_3.6kg_/_.15sec_/_15.6g]get metal gear servos[/link]with some torque, I'd look for at least 2.2 KG or more.
ESC need to be [link=http://cgi.ebay.ca/Mystery-RC-60A-Brushless-Motor-Speed-Controller-ESC_W0QQitemZ140330949906QQcmdZViewItemQQptZFR_YO_ Jeux_RadioComRobots_VehiculesRadiocommandes?hash=i tem20ac605d12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1215%7C 293%3A1%7C294%3A50]60 AMP [/link]or more, you don't want to run cheap ESC at max. At full power on stock 4s motor will drain about 50 amps give or take a bit.
Make sure to get [link=http://cgi.ebay.ca/Hobbywing-UBEC-3A-5V-6V-3A-max-5A-Lowest-RF-Noise-BEC_W0QQitemZ250461063563QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRadio_ Control_Parts_Accessories?hash=item3a50a4898b&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1215%7C 293%3A1%7C294%3A50]UBEC[/link], you will fry ESC and risk loosing your plane for $10-$20 extra you would have to pay for one. With so many servos ESC with BEC will overheat and can just shut down in mid flight. Adding a chance that a retract servo can bind you are crazy not to.

Yeah Bec's are often overlooked necessities, and newbies often blame burn outs and other problems on conditions caused by the lack of a separate BEC.

Decent Becs can be had for as low as $8.00 USD EACH.
