Thanks for the pics of the purple color, they helped solidify my choice. I initially thought the purple color may be too light for what I want but your pics show different than the web site. I am taking a serious look at these jets, still not a fan of these style of jets but they are growing on me a little. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunate) I have yet to land a job so no order for me for a while. It gives me time for the jet to mature (at least that is how I'm going to play it). I should be ready to order one when I do find employment. And since purple is my favorite color I will have my color already picked out.

Ronnie,

This could have been yours since I was next on the list after you. I also ordered with out logos and badging and was offered this one if I didn't want to continue waiting. I ended up returning plane to Barry and Dirk due to shipping damage and now waiting for replacement.

I will say Dirk and Barry are the best when it comes to making sure everything is right!

Cheers,

Jeff

Just started a build on another T1 for a friend! These production T1s are a joy compared to the prototype I built first. Very happy with all the improvements. Its going to be another quick build because I'm strapped for time before Florida jets and have another plane to build.

Another T1 maiden. 2 nice flights. Smooth, stable, and slows down nicely for landings. Well worth the wait.

So anxious to get my T-One.....

So tired of flying the rock with wings called a Boomerang.

rjpmodel 02-18-2017 07:22 PM

Some more flights today. I love this plane. I will have it at Tucson

raron455 02-18-2017 08:07 PM

Maybe Ill get mine soon
Today made 6 MONTHS since I paid for/ordered mine, that was before the price increase, and the notice that there would be delays

Just messing the "purple" one :rolleyes:

I was keeping an eye on Bobs Jet as he has no wheel covers and he has the modified gear with die springs. When he hits the breaks during taxi, his struts dampen and come right back up, as they should! When he lands I can see his struts compress and dampen his landing and come back up fully extended, mine are working great too. This is how they should work sports or scale! Now come on and get that purple jet on the road!

This is a very common issue with bubble wrap. Mine has them and you can polish them out but plan on spending a good half day or more and a lot of elbow grease. I haven't polished mine out as I can only see them when I'm inspecting at home after a weekend flight, and mainly on the stab. There should be an easier way to wrap the model for shipping, this also happens if the parts are wrapped to soon after painting (rushing to get them out).

Pete mine had the same but was able to polish them out. Spent more time on the more visible areas like the canopy and nose.

rjpmodel 02-19-2017 03:50 PM

+1. They need to pack in soft foam like Boomerang jets rather than bubble wrap

What are you using to polish these marks out with?

I think Dirk has been at the Coachella Jet Jam. I'm sure he'll get back to you when he gets back.

This is a normal thing for most kit manufacturers that use bubble wrap direct on the painted product. Most spray on car polishes and a fiber cloth will take it right off. I have seen other company use a thin layer of soft foam like material and then bubble wrap.

Wish you would have kept your original post up,,I thought it was a legitimate question.

luge_racer 02-24-2017 09:16 AM

On the list to be on the list. Is it just me or has the price jumped in the last few days? I frequent the site daily to drool over the T-1 and remember the price being closer to $1900, now it's $2300.

TonyBuilder 02-24-2017 09:44 AM

Supply and demand!

Digital Pilot 02-24-2017 09:54 AM

Hmm Pricing has not clanged at all. The 2300 is custom paint and the other are like 1899....

AV8ATOR 02-24-2017 10:01 AM

Still showing $1890. Unless you want custom.

luge_racer 02-24-2017 12:46 PM

Hmmm... it went back to $1890 for me too. Must've been some glitch.

TonyBuilder 02-24-2017 04:39 PM

The brain will do that...how old are you? JK
