hey
my friend who has 2/12+ years of experience with nitro cars (not really sure if this applies just trying to get a background established)....
he wants to get into planes but wants somenthing....relatively fast....very durable...and very low cost to maintain...
http://osCsid=7036d17127e041f862b25...2b2544af9feb86b -he was looking at these...which one would you guys recommend for a beginnner...but would satisfy his need for speed....
i suggested "combat wings" because they are relatively durable (as far as i know) and they can be very easy to maintain and take care of...
which combo would you guys recommend.....do you think he should get a kit...or is that too challenging and hard to build....(having no real buildnig experience but cars)....becuase i always htought it was hard to bulid stuff that glues together...stuff liek taht
(that's why i like helicopters that "snap" together)....

thanks so much for reading this time consumning post....sry.....thanks in advance for your replies....


he would need a controller and everything....if he ends up with a NICD battery i can give him my charger...but if not he would need the charger tooo


Thanks

I'll second what Pathogens said. Just bought one for my son's birthday....just about "bullet-proof" and won't torture your wallet too badly either. Take a look at their combo deals if the guy is just getting into planks. Would also recommend staying with the basic Zagi until he gets proficient. Their high-end machines are a little too hot for a beginner.

hey
thanks everyone....new sceadu.....
yea that was where i was trying to post the link but it didn't work out...i was advising my friend to look at the combos on http://www.combatwings.com
i was just looking at their videos and that's amazing....

i was pretty much thinking the XE400....does that sound good???
also should i go ahead and tell him to get everythign with it...as a combo...like their radio and stuff.....or purchase servos, battery, chrager, and tx & rx seperately???

Thanks

Hi
I got the xe2 ultimate kit as i already had radio gear but the RTF kit looks fine, As we speak i'm upgrading to brushless, the standard is great fun untill you fly with others with brushless set up's, Even on the standard setup i'd recommend going for the LI-PO battery for good flight times 1500 ni-cd should give you over 10mins whereas the brushless with 3000li-po is twice as fast with a flight time of around 40 mins
you would get a better tx if bought seperately

hey
so buy the lipos from them....does that require any extra equipment....
and can you get the lipo with a non-brushless setup???
also what radio woudl you suggest??? and what servos???

EDIT: also would you recommend the ARF???...it just seems like to me that to mess with glue and stuff would be difficult..and to get that nice covering....

Thanks

the Zagi is gaining much popularity in my neck of the woods
and as wolfdad said very long lasting

Hi Will
Their LI-PO's seem good, They can be used with normal brushed motor for better performance and flight time. I'm using cheep standard JR591 servo's with 30% expo added on my tx for smooth flight (I'm new to planks) these are fine and no better is needed.If your going to use a TX for other things such as planes or heli's then i'd recommend going for the best you can afford, If it's just for the wing then any 4 channel or more will do but having the DELTA option on it would be a benifit. Give the shop a call i'm sure they'll help you. Let us know what you go for. Have fun
Matt

hey
thanks for all the help everyone
this is not for me and my friend i'm pretty sure isn't going ot go big time into planes or helis...just wanted somenthing indestructable and fast....
so pretty much if he buys a 4 channel radio then the servos that come with it are good enough??
also....on their webstie they said the recommend metal geared servoes....why's htis....everything i've heard about metal gear (helis) is negative and they devlop slop??
one more thing: what's DETLA??


thanks so much for your time...i htink i might just double his order


Thanks

Guys

The UK distributor of Combat wings is http://www.flyingwings.co.uk

This'll save you from having to buy in the states. The wings are of excellent quality and they fly great.

Good web site and very good service.
