RE: 1/4 Scale AG WAGON ARF next from RCGUYS???

I have been watching this thread for a while......It's got to be a scale version. I saw one last month, it even had the lights in the LE. I'll buy one if it is not watered down.

RE: Slo-V

Do you think that the metal gear on the plane might be the culprit. Maybe it is bad or defective. It has to be a mis-alignment issue.

I mentioned earlier if you hit the nose hard enough the...

RE: Slo-V

I never said the plane does not work in stock form. I few it with the stock battery and no upgrades until very recently. The plane is a great plane for $99.00. I guess where we have a difference...
