R/C aerodyne vs. funkey
Im looking into a Hughes 500 fuselage. I already owned a funkey in the past and the craftsmanship is incredible. The r/c aerodyne MD500 is only $269. while the funkey 500D is $409..(from century) Should the price difference concern me? I really like the paint on the aerodyne but I dont want to sacrifice quality for $$$

Stay with the funkey. The paint and structural quality is way better.

I have a century MD500e 700 size and the quality is excellent, however I don't like the fact they don't have door and side windows
available. I ended up making my own from lexan.

Hi flynbryan

I bought a 700 MD500 from RCA. I used a 600 mechanics and extended the boom to a 700 and installed a 4035-330 motor running 12S. The quality of the MD500 Jive paint scheme is very good and flies great IMO. The doors fits very well and are already installed. However, i don't know the quality on the one that you're planning on buying for $269.00. I know for a fact that their other fuslage selections are not as good as the quality of other manufacturers.

Vince: Yeah, I agree. That MD500 that you have is a nice fuse. Too bad the rest of them aren't that good...

I have the 700 G-JIVE from RCA and it's excellent overall. Well packaged and it has the longer struts which are much closer to scale. RCA has their large fuses coming from a different factory with much higher quality than in the past. For a sport scale, I think they are better than the Funkey now that they have operating doors, windows, and, longer struts.

I can vouch for the quality of the century, but I really wish it had
the side windows and opening doors. I would probably go with the
RCA next time for that reason if the quality was as good.
