RE: Foam Seawind EP from Great Planes...

I'm buying from them on a regular basis: lipos, receivers, brushless motors, ESCs, BECs. Top quality and incredible prices. Never had problems with shipping, they're quick!

RE: E-flite Hawker Sea Fury 400 ARF

I did use two mixed channels for the retracts. Could ajust end points to get rid of the buzzing. Worked well. This plane has a well deserved spot in my hangar, she is HOT and fast.

RE: Foam Seawind EP from Great Planes...
