This kit is really solidly built and the covering is well applied and looks good. The hinges had a large amount of excess glue and the hinge gaps were not straight or large enough. This heavily limits the throw on all surfaces. Easily fixable and should fly nicely.
Helidirect packaged and shipped my order within hours of me placing it, and it arrived quickly and in good shape.
Quality fit and finish. Quality, heavy duty accessories.
I really appreciate the quality of construction. The only problem is the use of electric over gas or nitro. The landing gear are are too close to the ground for proper prop clearance with a E90 motor and a 16" prop. I had to go to 5" wheels and a 14" prop in order to fly. Flight characteristics are great. I highly recommend this this plane
The covering on this plane was really well done. Although I did re glue and fortify the tail Feathers, the plain is pretty solid. I flew it with a 55 O.S. Two stroke. More than enough power. No additional trims. Flew beautifully.
Instructions are lacking. Hinges had glue all over them and the control surfaces wouldn't move. Took an hour to clean that up. I was curious if thrust angle was compensated in the the firewall. Also I wanted to know if there were and throw recommendations so I emailed the company. Here is there response: ,
For flaps I don't know...maybe 1/2 to 3/4"? it is a stick...there are no set good settings you just try it and see what you like.
For the motor mount...it is easy enough to measure...you will need to shim if you feels it is needed.
To sum it up I will never buy another VMAR product again.
