kid and thought it looked like a lot of fun, and always enjoyed building
scale models. I have a few hundred hours in full size aircraft, but since my
son arrived I have taken a hiatus from flying in the clouds.
Since I am very busy, I wanted a RTF trainer that I could assemble quickly
and train with. I'll address building a bit later, which I am really looking
forwrd to. I am generally pleased with the aircraft, but have sent the wings
and spar back to Hobbico to have them replaced. The tolerances on the left
wing were off by 2-3 mm at the leading or trailing edges, and they never
lined up correctly when mounted with the factory spars. Not sure if I am
digging myself a deeper hole at this point, as I'm sure the plane would have
flown just fine. I have seen two or three other Nexstars at the hobby shop
that have a perfect fit, so I figure its worth the effort. I'll post about
first flight impressions at a later date.
Just practicing with the gimicky simulator at this point....
