Now go to Banana Hobby (right here in the US) and look at the Sky Surfer. This is the same airplane and you can get it with a brushless upgrade for $129.00. That price is for a ready to fly airplane including a 4 channel 2.4 GHZ transmitter. USPS shipping is under 30.00 so when you do the numbers you actually come out a dollar or two ahead buying from the US dealer. So yoy can save money, support an American business, and save yourself a potential huge headache by dealing with HK.

Your money, your choice. I prefer to support American businesses.
You might want to do a search on "Banana Hobby" on any RC web site & see what turns up.

Actually I have bought a couple of planes from Banana and they had pretty decent prices. However, I also bought a Sky Surfer for a friend and the fuse was badly bent. After calling them they were nice enough to send a new fuse so the problem got resolved to my satisfaction.

I would not hesitate to buy from Banana Hobby if they have something I want and the price is right.

From the looks of it, Banana Hobby is finally trying to fix their bad reputation and improve their business. You see a lot less complaints about them these days and they are trying to put out some good products.

I hope so - I really like that A1A Skyraider. MMMMMMM. Not sure about the cheap components though. Those large foam warbirds are really looking good.

Yeah, was just looking at the A1A skyraider myself, one of my favorite aircraft.
