Run forest! run!
stay away from those cats. I did a rebuild for a guy who bought what he thought was a 500 class heli.... NOT! turns out the heli is just a cheap over sized 450. the tail case and rotors were the same size as a 450's, the main rotors were 335mm, the main motor is a 3500kv motor powered by an 11.1v lipo, cheap analog servos on the cyclics and tail. Its your money in the end , but if you are asking... I say stay away from them.

Never dealt with them but the reason is I've never heard anything good about them.

I've met the guy, and he will answer the phone and talk with you and help out, on the Jets, stay away from the "Brand new" models, It seems they have problems that range from something not working right, to the CG being vastly incorrect. I think these usually get worked out by the second or third run though.

There have been a few of them flying at our field.

That seems hard to do since he is personally flying and testing EVERY SINGLE rc heli, plane, car and truck that is ordered they as he has stated online! That poor little pete probably never gets to leave the field if that were true! You have been warned!

I have the diamond 2500 glider and an f16 edf from them. The glider is great. I loaded it up with fpv gear. The edf is mediocre at best. With the recommended setup it would barely fly, unlike the one they show in the flight test video. A little pricey for what you get. And from what I've heard from others, don't expect any kind of after sales service. Don't spend more than you can't live without, because you may be sol.

i orderd the 90mm f18 from them and the fan blew apart they did send another fan and that one blew apart and took most of the plane with it. so i called them and they replaced the whole plane, so what i did was replaced the fan with a high quality fan and better landing gear and its been fine,so if u have the option just buy the airframe and put a better fan in. my whole exprience with them was good

... Who is that little troll that does the demonstration videos??

I can't tell if he's a teenager or an adult that was a former horse jockey.

That be Pete! LOL1 He's the cat that claims he personaly test's every rc product that is ordered prior to shipping EVRY ONE OF THEM! can you imagine? What if on a given day they get 50 orders for heli's, and 75 for planes and 30 for cars and another 40 for some trucks, is that little man going to test every one of them? Especially when he uses his own Tx and not the one that comes with the RTF systems... what about the plug-n-play versions... does he install a temporary rx , bind it to his TX and test fly it? Come on who is he kidding!

My father inlaw got me a thundercat foamy last christmas from Banana, the aircraft was $109 and the shipping was $30 . If your looking for a very well made jet that has parts when you need them, here you go.

Watch at YouTube

I'm ordering mine soon.

There reputation is so bad over on Rc Groups, Banana had a give away of 50 batteries, it was thought to get some brownie points with the members.
They made good on it the give away but there reputation still isn't good.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter
